Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books That will Make You Laugh, (or at least chuckle). To be honest, I had a hard time coming up with such books (does that mean I’m a depressing person?!), so I decided to go with books that made me smile. Because they were funny, because they were too damn cute, because it was awkward, just, because they made me smile. Click on the title of the books to check out their synopsis!
1 • Kindred Spirits, Rainbow Rowell
A book about a girl, crazy about Star Wars? I might not be the biggest Star Wars fan, but I can always relate to the fangirling part of that book. Garanteed to put a smile on your face.
2 • Don’t Get Caught, Kurt Dinan
I recently reviewed that book, and it was a great, entertaining read if you’re just looking to relax, have fun, and laugh a little bit. Seriously, the pranks are great.
3 • Isla and the Happily Ever After, Stephanie Perkins
This book put a stupid smile on my face the whole time, really. Because I’m kind of a marshmallow, but because it’s cute, funny at times, and it’s just one of those books that cheers you up instantly.
4 • Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli
Another contemporary that should make you smile, especially when talking about Simon’s family. I mean, they all watch reality shows together. HOW COOL is that.
5 • The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Patrick Ness
That book is really ambitious, and I’m really glad to have read it. The weird situations and differences between the “Chosen Ones”, and us ordinary people, did put a smile on my face. It’s just so weird/funny/cool/ thankyouPatrickNessforyourimagination.
6 • Since You’ve Been Gone, Morgan Matson
On a quest to find her missing best friend, it’s obvious that there’ll be some obstacles. Some funny ones, some weird ones, and just an adventure with a great friend. This book is just great.
7 • Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Morgan Matson
Another of Morgan Matson’s books on here, but well, she really does know how to write great contemporary books that are garanteed to put a smile on your face. Another road trip, another adventure, a bunch of playlists and weird situations.
8 • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart
If We Were Liars is my favorite book by hers, it’s definitely not one that made me smile….This one, however, was really ingenious, and I liked Frankie, her way of thinking and everything.
9 • Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green & David Levithan
I couldn’t go by without quoting a John Green book, ahah. I think this one, however, was brilliant, diverse, and just one of those books that make you laugh while making you realize important things. Those kind of books are the best ones.
10 • Let’s Get Lost, Ali Alsaid
To be honest, it took me a minute or two to remember what happened in that book…I read too many books, ahah. But it was really a great read, and with some funny situations that will surely put a smile on your face.
