top ten books that have made me laugh
posted by soe 1:49 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share books that have made us laugh aloud:

  1. Mama Makes Up Her Mind by Bailey White: Had me guffawing on a plane.
  2. Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair
  3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
  4. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens
  5. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
  6. Fannie Flagg’s Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven
  7. The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg
  8. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
  9. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  10. Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence

Actually, most of these authors include elements of humor in nearly all of their writing, so I’d recommend picking up any of their titles if you want to be amused.

Category: books. There is/are 6 Comments.

Oh The Eyre Affair was so witty – not laugh out loud for me but a fantastic series! And of course Good Omens is so so funny! These are my books that made me laugh out loud – some recent reads and some familiar classics.

I’ve seen the movie for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before(and loved it), but never read the book! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

I really wanted to like Good Omens, but I didn’t find it as funny as I was hoping!

I had forgotten about how funny Fangirl was at parts. Nice list.

Oh i love a funny list!! Hooray. I loved reading comedians books, but they are basically their stand up in print. Still very funny.
