Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Now, I have not posted a Top Ten Tuesday in a…long while..but I saw the topic for this week and wanted to dive in with my picks for funny reads.
Comedy is an essential part of my life: some of my bookish loves, are after all, comic books and humourous reads; I listen to comedy audiobooks and podcasts regularly; and my comfort TV viewing is comedy (with edge/bite). I have read my share of funny, laugh out loud books, and it was VERY hard to narrow down. But here, in no particular order, is a selection of twelve stand-out funny reads from all genres (excluding comics, otherwise this list would go on forever…):
Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
Losing Joe’s Place by Gordan Korman
How to Be a Canadian by Will Ferguson and Ian Ferguson
The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot
Deep and Meaningful Diaries from Planet Janet series by Dyan Sheldon
Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison
Completely Cassidy series by Tamsyn Murray
Boys Don’t Knit series by T.S. Easton
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Anastasia Again! by Lois Lowry
Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants by Matthew Inman
Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done by Stephan Pastis

What are some of your favourite funny reads?
I haven’t read any of those!
My TTT is at Literati Girl
Thanks for stopping by!
I’m also finding lists with all-new-to-titles…more to add to my TBR, I guess 🙂
I want to read Hyperbole and a Half, and I came thisclose to adding Where’d You Go, Bernadette? to my top ten.
Can’t recommend Hyperbole and a Half enough– TEARS streaming down my face from laughing so hard. And Brosh blends serious and insightful talk about depression and anxiety with some of the funniest things ever. (Which some of the best comedians and comedy writers can do, I think!)
Thank you for stopping by!
Great choices here. I also have Angus Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging on my list today…that made me laugh soooo hard when I was about 15. I was cracking up!
I remember Angus, Thongs…was one of the first teen reads that made me laugh out loud repeatedly. You can see from my list that I adore British writers and British humour as well! 🙂
Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants?? *wanders off to Goodreads* My TTT.
Oh it’s worth a read- it’s a quick read, totally bonkers but my goodness, it’s hysterical. I hope you get to read it!!
these all look so fun! My TTT
Thank you for stopping by and commenting! These really are all well-written as well as being terrifically funny! 🙂
