Top 10 Books That Will Make You Laugh

1. Georgia Nicolson series– by Louise Rennison. This is one of my favorite series of all time, and has made me LOL since high school. I’m so sad about Louise’s passing, but I hope her career of creating fun and laughs is a lasting legacy.

2. Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here– by Anna Breslaw. One of my new favorite books. A strong message PLUS some seriously great jokes and quirky perspecctives.

3. Finding Audrey– by Sophie Kinsella. I just adore this author. Her work is so laugh-out-loud relatable. This one was especially moving.

4. The Princess Diaries– by Meg Cabot. I loved this series in middle and high school. Mia was one of those girls you just wish you could be (waking up to being a princess, YES).

5. Fangirl– by Rainbow Rowell. One of my favorite dialogue exchanges ever: “You’ve read the books?”
“I’ve seen the movies.”
Cath rolled her eyes so hard, it hurt. (Actually.) (Maybe because she was still on the edge of tears. On the edge, period.) “So you haven’t read the books.”
“I’m not really a book person.”
“That might be the most idiotic thing you’ve ever said to me”

6. Paper Towns– by John Green. The book was way better than the movie. The book has Q’s relationships with his friends laid out in the best and most hilarious way possible. Lots o’charm here.

7. The DUFF– by Kody Keplinger. The book also hit the jackpot with a very different BUT very hilarious movie as well.

8. The Distance Between Us– by Kasie West. I LOVED the sarcastic humor in this one. West has a way of writing characters that I just GET, you know? Love love love.

9. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before– by Jenny Han. This book is more sweet funny with situational humor. I could not get enough of the Song family!

10. Twenties Girl– by Sophie Kinsella. This is technically an adult fiction story, but you should absolutely read it now. It’s heart-warming and romantic and SASSY.

What’s your favorite funny book?

    Just requested a couple of these that I haven’t read before. Thanks for the list! My students in Adolescent Lit sometimes complain that YA lit is so bleak and depressing, so I need to book talk more funny books!

  • Molly Blacknell

    Twenties Girl is one of those books that gets you in the feels as well as making you LOL.

  • Chat Ebooks

    I’ve heard great reviews of Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here. I’m not much of a YA reader but the blurb sounds interesting. As for Paper Towns, I have to agree that the book is definitely better than the movie version.
