Hello dear readers, this week’s Top 10 Tuesday is about books that make me smile for any reason.
As always, Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
I had a bit of trouble with this week’s list because I don’t often smile when I read books? I have a few times that I can remember, but I’m going to count inside smiles as well.
Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. – Honestly there were a few times I was laughing from this book. It’s silly and fun, but serious and exciting. A classic book everyone should read.
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare – This book was a great ending to the trilogy, and the end for some character’s stories were really heartwarming.
The Girl Who Found the Sun by Matthew S. Cox – After almost an entire book of the protagonist being ignored and not taken seriously, when she is proven to be right at the end brought a big smile to my face.
Martin the Warrior by Brian Jacques – This one brings a smile to my face for nostalgia than anything else. I will have a copy of this book till the day I die probably, and I will forever claim it is the reason I love fantasy as much as I do.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – I wouldn’t say this book is happy per se, but there were some character moments that were so perfectly developed I can’t help but smile when they happen.
Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson – There is one specific moment in this book that I have actually re-read a few times and it still makes me giddy like a little school boy.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – A lot of this book there is riffs between characters, but when they get mended in the end, it’s one of the best feelings.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – This is one of the least happy books I have ever read, but you can’t help but smile at the end of it. The ending just leaves you feeling like smiling is all you can do.
Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto – There are so many sad and depressing moments in this series, but there are just as many, if not more, moments where you want to get up and cheer.
One Piece by Eiichiro Oda – Like Naruto, there are so many small moments in this series where you feel so fulfilled and happy that you can’t help but smile.
