Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, the topic is “if you’re in the mood for X”. I have chosen 5 books for people who are in the mood to read a fun urban fantasy book! With fun, I mean that I genuinely enjoyed myself while reading this book or found myself giggling or smiling throughout. Mostly, it means the main character is witty and funny.
Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop // This is one of my all-time favorite series. I mention it time and time again (no, I’m not sorry). I just feel like this is such an underrated series, still. It’s such a fun read, and I find myself giggling or smiling throughout every book in this series. The dialogue is just the best.
Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid #1) by Richelle Mead // I absolutely flew through this series. It’s about Georgina, a succubus who works at a bookstore. I wouldn’t really call it high-standing literature, but they are just so much fun! I would say that as this is about a succubus, this is an adult (or new adult?) series too.
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson #1) by Rick Riordan // I could mention any of Rick Riordan’s books here (aside from the ones I haven’t read, obviously). This is an all-time favorite, even though it’s been a little while since I last read them. Every single one of his series is packed with humor – my kind of humor. I absolutely love them.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (DOSAM #1) by Laini Taylor // This one is absolutely beautiful. It isn’t quite as funny to me as The Others, or Percy Jackson, but it’s just such a gorgeous urban fantasy novel. I know, is it urban fantasy? Is it just paranormal? I’m not quite sure. Whatever it is, it is incredible. I only picked this up late last year, and I regret waiting that long. I really need to finish the rest of the series!
Hounded (Iron Druid #1) by Kevin Hearne // This is actually the book that inspired this list! I just finished reading this, and I can’t stop thinking about it. This is about a 21 (centuries) old Irish Druid. He has an amazing wolfhound called Oberon. Everyone needs to read this, it’s just so much fun! I want to pick up the rest of the series now, but I’ve only just bought books...
