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.
This week’s topic is Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud.
I love this topic because there are so many books that I have enjoyed that made me laugh out loud, and all for different reasons. A few of which are below, in no particular order…
- Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. Every book in this series is so funny. I truly think these are Kinsella’s best books.
- The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinseall. One of Kinsella’s memorable older books that I remember laughing at about every other page. I think this was the height of her characters being in I Love Lucy-type situations.
- Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao. Some of my favorite moments in this book were the voicemails that Chloe’s mom would leave for her. They were so funny and lighthearted.
- The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo. I remember this book being so fun and cute, with a witty writing style. The characters were always making me laugh.
- Trial by Fury (J.P. Beaumont #3) by J.A. Jance. Yes, this is a mystery/thriller but there were so many moments in this book where I found myself laughing because Beau is such a surprisingly funny character. Maybe it’s his curmudgeonly charm.
- Touch of Red (Tracers #12) by Laura Griffin. Another thriller, this one of the romantic suspense variety. The dialogue between Brooke and Sean is what made me laugh so many times while reading this one. They are such likable characters and very realistic.
- The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty. I think most books by Liane Moriarty have that subtle humor this one was no exception.
- Sex and Vanity by Kevin Kwan. There is one particular moment in this book that involves an engagement that had me laughing so hard. But there were so many other moments in this book that were equally funny!
- Over the Top: A Raw Journey to Self Love by Jonathan Van Ness. This book was full of laugh-out-loud moments, mostly because Jonathan is so much more relatable than I realized!
- The Shadow of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee. I mentioned in my review of this book that I really loved the relationship between Rangi and her mom, Hee-Ran, which became so much more open and often humorous towards the end of the book.
I really appreciate books that incorporate humor in unexpected moments!
