Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fabulous blog The Broke and Bookish, and is a chance for bloggers to share lists about books. So join in, because LISTS!
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books That Will Make You Laugh. This is such a fun topic, and had me scouring goodreads, trying to narrow the list down to my favourites. I basically ended up just listing authors, because there are some who instantly come to mind and I can’t name just one of their books.
Several of these authors are here for the sass (especially Cassandra Clare), whereas others are there because even the chapter titles in the books are hilarious and deserve books of their own.
Rick Riordan – author of Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus/Kane Chronicles/Magnus Chase
Cassandra Clare – author of The Mortal Instruments/The Infernal Devices/The Dark Artifices
Alwyn Hamilton – author of Rebel of the Sands
Maggie Stiefvater – author of The Wolves of Mercy Falls/The Raven Cycle
Morgan Matson – author of Since You’ve Been Gone/Second Chance Summer/Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour
Sarah J. Maas – author of Throne of Glass/A Court of Thorns and Roses
Marissa Meyer – author of The Lunar Chronicles
Laini Taylor – author of Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Terry Pratchett – author of Discworld
(Neil Gaiman is also fantastically funny)
Roald Dahl – author of SO MANY CHILDREN’S BOOKS
Books by all of these authors have had me smiling/giggling/laughing/snorting embarrassingly loud as I’ve been reading, and they’re all worth reading. Not only are they sometimes hilarious, these are all such good books too!
What books have made you laugh? And do you ever snort when you laugh…?
