I love a book that makes me laugh out loud when I’m reading it. I mean, what’s better than laughing?! I’ve compiled a list of books I’ve read recently that actually made me LOL. In making this list I have realized I don’t read that many funny books, so please chime in and let me know some funny books you think I should read!
1. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
This book is straight up HILARIOUS! Semple takes social situations that are happening all of the time around us and shows us how ridiculously funny they are. This book is 100% worth your time.
2. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
Do you remember reading this book as a kid? Have you read it as an adult? I bet you’ll find it way more comical reading it now. You’ll also appreciate how clever it is.
3. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
OMG this book is so stinking funny! I read it for the first time not that long ago (see my review here) and was so pleasantly surprised by the humor in it. Anne is hilarious. You need to read this book if you haven’t yet.
4. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I got this book in my very first OwlCrate, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I would never have picked this one up on my own, but it turned out to be quite fun and had lots of LOL moments. See my review here.
5. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
This was one of my favorite books of 2016 (also of all-time). This book had A LOT of laughs (some of the characters are hilarious). I will say that it’s not all laughs – this book has a lot of everything, and it’s DEFINITELY worth your time. Check out my rave review here.
6. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
This book is chock full of humor, and as such invites tons of LOLs. My husband read it recently and laughed so often while reading it, I almost picked it up again. If you haven’t read this one before, definitely consider it. If you’ve read it before, you might consider picking it up again! See my mini-review here.
