Default Need book recomendations please

I need a list of books that are light with happy endings. I've read too many depressing books lately. I don't care to read much about other people's sex lives, so nothing with alot of raunchy sex please.

Thanks.

Have you read Sophie Kinsella? Her Shopaholic series is a really fun one, and it's pretty easy going.

Also, if you don't mind YA fiction, I highly recommend Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicholson series. It's a real hoot, and all the books are super quick and light.

I second the Sophie Kinsella rec. Also try Meg Cabot (Size 12, 14, Big Boned series), Emily Giffin, and Jennifer Weiner. Nice reads with pretty happy endings.

How about Odd Mom Out and Mrs. Perfect, both by Jane Porter. Emily Giffin is awesome too - Something Borrowed and Something Blue are a series to be read in that order. She also wrote Love the One You're With and Baby Proof.

I second the motion on the Meg Cabot and Jennifer Weiner books. I also enjoyed the Shopaholic books, but found them a little stressful because the main character's spendthrift ways are so irresponsible May just be my hangup, though.
