Top Ten Tuesday has come around again and today’s topic seemed like such a cute idea that I was actually looking forward to it. I can’t wait to read other posts about books that make people smile. I hope you enjoy checking out my list.
1. Fangirl – by Rainbow Rowell
I’m sure no one is surprised to see this at the top of my list. This book is and I think always will be my favorite YA contemporary romance (though I have some close seconds!!)
2. Let’s Talk About Love – By Claire Kann
And of course this is the second book on my list, again no one is surprised. But hey, if you want a book that will remind you of everything you enjoy about love. This is the book. It is sure to give you a sappy grin.
3. The Hobbit – by J.R.R. Tolkien
Currently my boyfriend is reading this book to me and he does all the voices and characters, so it’s making me smile quite a lot. Also it’s just such a good book and I have fond memories of my mother reading it to my siblings and I.
4. Hair Love – by Matthew A. Cherry
I wanted a book to break up the many romance books that I have on this list, and this book caught my eye as I ran through the books I read last year. I loved this book, it was just the cutest little story and I highly recommend it.
5. The Kiss Quotient – by Helen Hoang
Y’all might remember how much this book surprised me. It’s hard for me to find adult romance novels that I love, but this book…Gosh I’m smiling just remembering how cute it is.
6. Pumpkinheads – by Rainbow Rowell
I tried my best to get through this list without using more than one Rowell book, but I just couldn’t do it. Rowell is simply a master of writing adorable grin-worth love stories.
7. Herding Cats – by Sarah Andersen
Who doesn’t love Sarah’s Scribbles? I mean really.
8. Bob – by Wendy Mass & Rebecca Stead
This was another surprise read for me, I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so cute.
9. Deadly Sweet – by Lola Dodge
Of all the books on this list this one is probably the least feel good all the way through, but the between the baking and the great characters I definitely did a lot of smiling while reading it.
10. Amelia Bedelia – by Peggy Parish
I’m not sure why it took me so long to think about this book, but here’s a story that will make you smile, if not also laugh out loud. I can’t wait to read this to my kids.
