Jamie's Picks

1. The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty: Oh man, I read the first book (Sloppy Firsts) on the beach with my husband and he was sooo embarrassed because I could not contain myself I was laughing out loud so hard and had to keep reading parts to him...which he didn't find nearly as funny as I did. The series is a great coming of age story that follows Jessica Darling, one of my favorite characters ever, from high school through adulthood.

2. I Love Everybody (And Other Atrocious Lies) by Laurie Notaro: If you like funny and relatable non-fiction essays, this one made me die laughing so many times or like "OMG ME TOO!

3. Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway: Oh man, the funny shenanigans that happen in this story about a girl whose ex boyfriend writes a song about her that becomes the next big hit are too many to count! 

Kimberly's Pick

4. The Georgia Nicholson books by Louise Rennison:  I listened to the audio books at work and actually laughed out loud. Luckily my coworkers know I'm listening to a book and don't think I'm crazy. The MC is hilariously self centered and completely oblivious.

Daisy's Picks

5. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: it has this quote "In order to prevent further violence I was forced to sit on him". The MC is awesome and smart and funny without meaning to be. I totally loved this book!

6. Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink by Stephanie Kate Strohm: the MC is really outside of her element and she has the best banter with one of the guys and an awesome best friend, who all provide many funny moments that had me laughing out loud a lot!

7. Basically all of Sophie Kinsella's standalones: I LOVE her writing style and she always brings the funny and the swoons! My favourite is Twenties Girl because it had a sassy ghostly grandmother (who appeared in her 20s as a ghost).

Lauren's Picks
8. The Martian by Andy Weir -- The dude is stuck on Mars and will probably die. Not funny, right? But his personality immediately smacks you in the face from the beginning. The main character has a sarcastic/deadpan attitude about everything, which is a win for me. 

9.  F*ck Feelings: One Shrink's Practical Advice for Managing All Life's Impossible Problems -- Yes, it has a cuss word in the title. Yes, it is a self help book for people with mental difficulties. Yes, the authors purposefully make you laugh because they know... humor can cause happiness.

10. Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips -- The Greek gods have always been know to manipulate humans for their own enjoyment. This book turns the tables for us to get a good look at them and chuckle at least once per chapter. 

Tell us the books that made you laugh or you found to be humorous! 


  1. Oh snap. I was going to add The Martian to my list but forgot? What a fun topic this week. Thanks!

  2. Laurie Nataro made my list too (only a different book), and The Martian did too. I've yet to read a few of these, but I love books that make me laugh!

  3. Should have put Sophie Kinsella and Megan McCafferty on my list as well! Hilarious!

  4. I haven't read any of these! Except The Martian, but I'm the one person that didn't like that book. :P

  5. I haven't read a Georgia Nicholson book since middle school! That series was actually the first to come to mind when I saw this week's theme, but I forgot to include it on my list. Oh well! Glad to see it got some attention!

  6. The Jessica Darling series forever!!! OMG made me laugh out loud so much. A character I finally felt "got" me :)

  7. Great list!! I included a couple of Sophie Kinsella books this week as well. She was the first author I thought of when I first read the topic.

  8. The Martian made me laugh so much! I loved it.

  9. I am currently reading The Martian by Andy Weir and I'm finding the protagonist, Mark, hilarious!

  10. YES! The Rosie Project is so funny!

  11. I can't believe we forgot to put the Martian in our Top Ten Tuesday, Mark was hilarious! I especially loved the bit when he was messaging NASA and was told to be careful since everything he said would be shown all over the world and he literally gave no shits whatsoever

  12. I had forgotten all about Jessica Darling, thanks for reminding me! I sure loved those books as a teenager/college girl. :)

  13. Have the Martian on my list as well. Great book. The movie's even greater.
