TTT: Light, Fun Reads? What are Those?

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light and Fun) should be a simple one, but I had to really wrack my brain to come up with six books/authors that fit the category, let alone ten.  I guess it's because I don't actually read this genre often.  Maybe I should?  It would at least offset all those dark, depressing dystopians I like so much ...

Oh, and I forgot to tell you that this always popular meme is hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.  If you haven't joined in the fun yet, give it a try.  It's a good time, I promise!

So, okay, here's what I came up with:

1.  Ally Carter—I recently read the first book in Carter's middle grade spy school series (I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You) and it was totally fun.  Heist Society, her YA series, is similar.  They're light, funny, enjoyable books that are perfect when you need a fast, breezy story to take your mind off the weighty things of the world!

2.  Melanie Jacobson—If you're into LDS fiction (and I'm not talking the so-cheesy-it-hurts kind), Jacobson is your new best friend.  Her new adult romances are contemporary, fun and better written than just about anything else you'll find at an LDS bookstore.

3.  Lindsey Leavitt—Leavitt's middle grade Princess for Hire series offers a lot of good, clean fun.  I also really liked Sean Griswold's Head, although it's a little more serious.  I've got Leavitt's newest, a YA novel called Going Vintage, on my Kindle, I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet ... better get on that!

4.  Janette Rallison—Fun, easy reads are Rallison's trademark.  Her Fairy Godmother books are especially charming (a little princess joke—hee hee).

5.  Meg Cabot—Okay, so I haven't actually read anything by Cabot, but I'm totally planning to.  I've heard her books fit this category super well ...

6.  Joanne Fluke—I'm not going to lie, Fluke's culinary mysteries are TERRIBLE.  But, if I'm in the mood for something that's entertaining while requiring very little from my always overtaxed brain cells, these books do the trick every time.

Since I obviously need lots of help in this category, throw out some suggestions.  Which light, fun books should I be reading?
