Books That Make Me Smile | Top Ten Tuesday

I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a long while, so I figured, hey, why not jump into the bandwagon again?

What is Top Ten Tuesday?

“Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”

Today’s topic: books that make you smile for any reason!

So I’m totally going to cheat and also include webtoons because they’re still reading material, so…. yeah. And these aren’t in any particular order, but here’s the countdown!

10. Nice to Meet You by Wishroomness

A super cute and funny rom-com that just constantly makes me laugh and smile in each episode. I love it a lot!

9. Castle Swimmer by Wendy Lian Martin

A fun story about two merboys falling in love, and how their destinies intertwine. I mean, how could I not smile at this?

8. Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

Need I even say anything? Wholesome. Adorable. The sweetest.

7. Freaking Romance by SnailLords

Not only does this series make me laugh out loud because it’s exactly my humor, but it’s made me smile numerous times from the amount of cheesy scenes.

6. Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

I really love all of these hockey player stories, and this one is no exception. It just makes me smile seeing the dynamic between two friends to lovers.

5. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The family dynamic in this book made me laugh and smile on more than one occasion! I love how tight knit the family is and how everyone interacts with one another.

4. Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan

This is my first time reading this series and I love it! It’s a great adventure story that has made me smile, for sure.

3. My Giant Nerd Boyfriend by fishball

This comic is about me and my husband. Not really, but a lot of the way they interact with one another is very similar to how me and my husband are, so I smile a lot reading this.

2. Plain Boy and Prince by amanduur

This has all of the tropes, which makes it hilarious and adorable. I mean, c’mon, look at the picture that’s used in the header. xD

1 . Lore Olympus by Rachel Smythe

Of course I couldn’t forget one of my favorite series, Lore Olympus, in all of this. This series has made me feel quite a wide range of emotions, and smiling came along with feelings of giddiness and happiness.

What books have made you smile? Do you have any fond memories with those books? Let me know!

    • I highly recommend them! Especially if you’re looking for ways to get into graphic novels/comic books/manga. Chapters/episodes are usually posted weekly, so it’s a fun way to keep up with a story.


    • Oh man, it’s been a while since I’ve read the first book that I’m having trouble remembering! I also haven’t seen the movie since it came out forever ago, so I’m not sure!


  1. Percy Jackson was one of my favorite series- along with Narnia and Harry Potter. From high school onward- I fell in love with Lord of the Rings, Sister’s Grimm, Avalon, Land of Stories, and Shades of Magic.

    Other fantasy books I love are Uprooted, Spinning Silver, and Princess Bride-a few examples of standalone.
