Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books That Make Me Laugh!

toptentuesday2Welcome 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

    1. 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!
