Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that combines lists and books. This weeks topic is… Books That Will Make You Laugh. Funny books are my favorite, and I always take the chance to recommend the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson, so here we go!
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins – This one looked fun, but it’s charm took me completely by surprise.
Angus Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging / The Confessions of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison – I love this whole series. I read them when I’m stressed or having a bad day. It makes me smile just thinking about it!
One For the Money / Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich – This series always makes me laugh. I read this series when I’m in a reading slump and it never diappoints.
Sloppy Firsts / Jessica Darling by Megan McCafferty – This one made me laugh and cry. It is one of the few books that I truly consider lifechanging. I would not be the person I am today without this series.
Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls by David Sedaris – or anything he writes, really. I love his dark humor and especially recommend the audio version, which he reads.
I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosley – Another book of personal essays, I find Crosley’s writing humorous and insightful. It’s a big reason why I want to read her recently released novels.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White – This book was so fun. I need to finish the series!
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot – Meg Cabot is always a good choice if you want something hopeful and funny, but a little bit awkward in just the right way. Slightly different from the movie, the books are fantastic!
Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday (Her Spying in High Heels is a runner up!) – I never liked the newspaper reporter covering a story mystery trope until this series. It had me laughing within the first three sentences!
The Martian by Andy Weir – This was a book club pick. I didn’t know what to expect when I started listening, but the foul-mouthed, unabashedly-smart narrator had me laughing even as I freaked out about how he would survive. I loved the movie, but I enjoyed the book more. Believe the hype!
