Today’s Topic is: Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud (Claire @ Book Lovers Pizza)
I can already tell that to find such books is going to be tough. *lol* I read way too many serious books and definitely should go for more fun reads. XD
1.) Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
I remember sitting in the train while I read this and earning a lot of irritated glances and raised eyebrows when I burst out laughing. *lol* But seriously this book made me laugh so hard sometimes. Baz and Simon were just too hilarious and when I wasn’t laughing about their antics I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat because they were so adorable and cute. XD No wonder this book became one of my all time favourites! If you want to read my full review you can do it here!
2.) Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston
Ahhh! „Red, White & Royal Blue“ was such a revelation! I loved this book to bits and pieces and it made me laugh quite a lot! When I went into this I already knew that a lot of people loved it but I wasn’t prepared for all the serious topics this tackled. The world in RWARB is such an open-minded and great world and I really wish things would be like that in real life too. So in some way to read about Alex’s and Henry’s relationship gave me hope and I’m convinced we can reach this kind of contentment and equality one day. If you’re interested in reading my full review just follow the link!
3.) The Hating Game – Sally Thorne
I had so much fun reading this because Lucy and Josh were amazing! They didn’t give each other an inch and their banter and battle of words was so damn amusing I can’t even! *lol* Boy, were they at each other’s throats! XD Their barbs were quite something and I couldn’t get enough of their witty altercations. I admit, I kinda lived and breathed for their little war. Haha! And of course I’m a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, which made this an even more enjoyable read. There’s nothing better than people who are quick-witted and have a sharp tongue. ;-P
4.) Stephanie Plum Novels – Janet Evanovich
Janet Evanovich’s books always make me laugh out loud, especially her Stephanie Plum novels! Stephanie is such an awesome MC and I love Grandma Mazur and Lula! *lol* Plus, Morelli as well as Ranger are both really fine men I certainly wouldn’t say „no“ to. XD Whenever I need a good laugh I’ll pick up this series and just dive right into the fun. I can really recommend it! ;-P
5.) Percy Jackson – Rick Riordan
You just gotta love Percy’s sass and his defiance! Plus he’s super sarcastic and I love characters like that. 😉 This said, every single one of Uncle Rick’s books is highly entertaining and his humour is great! I might have been late to the party but I’ve read a lot of his books by now and so far I’ve enjoyed them all. So what are you waiting for? If you want to read something funny and great this is the right series for you! (And it’s extremely child-friendly too!)
6.) Six of Crows Doulogy – Leigh Bardugo
I think we can all agree that the conversations in this duology are iconic! ❤ In fact they are so iconic that I’m still looking for another series that reaches this level of awesomeness! The banter between the six MCs is hilarious and I’ve rarely come across a book that was as quote-worthy as SoC! If you ever find another book that comes even close to this: I’m ready for your rec! *lol* And just in case you want to read my super long reviews: You can read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by following the links!
7.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli
Ahh I just love this book! Simon is such a relatable MC and even though „Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“ touches a lot of serious topics it’s still a fun read that had me smiling like crazy. Yes, sometimes I even had to laugh but mostly it’s just a feel-good book that makes you immensely happy and gives you all those papilionaceous feels! Look at me throwing around all those difficult words! Haha! (I’m typing this in the middle of the night btw and my brain is running on too little coffee to think clearly… which come to think of it explains everything about me, yet nothing at all. *lol*)
8.) Boyfriend Material – Alexis Hall
I requested this as an ARC from NetGalley and I was really happy I got approved for it! This was such a fun ride and Luc and Oliver had me laughing about their „fake-dating“ antics. Their conversation about being fake-boyfriends were hilarious and I’ll definitely watch out for Alexis Hall’s next book! If you’re looking for a short and diverting read this one’s for you. 😉
9.) The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee
Okay, if you have no idea what this book is about and who’s Monty you better get your hands on a copy and start to read now, because this was HILARIOUS!!! I swear Monty’s POV already had me dying of laughter when I was just a couple of pages into the book and it basically continued in that vein until I finished the book. If you love chaotic historical road trips that have just the right amount of adorable „awww“ moments, then you should definitely consider to give this a shot! 😉
10.) The Deal – Elle Kennedy
I know the cover is nice eye candy but don’t let it lead you astray. 😉 The content of this is great and some scenes had me wiping away tears of laughter. XD My dear friend Lia recommended me this book when I was in dire need of something funny and sexy and to say she hit the nail right on the head would be putting it more than just mildly. *lol* This said, I really enjoyed „The Deal“ and I’m looking forward to read the other books of this series too. (Apparently there are 3 more that all feature Garret’s friends and their own stories.)
Is it just me or do most of those fun reads actually have a comic like cover? *lol* Might be just my imagination but it’s interesting how comic covers kinda seem to take over the world. ;-P
Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you laugh while reading them too? Do you have any hilarious book recommendations I just NEED to read? And are you curious about some of the books I wrote about?
Talk to me and let me know!
And as always try to stay healthy and safe!
