Welcome back to another Top 5 Tuesdays. You might have noticed that I’ve been switching between Top 5 Tuesdays and Top 10 Tuesdays for the past few weeks and this is because they both have some amazing topics and unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to do two posts every week on a Tuesday so I’ll have to stick with alternating!
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Tuesday, it is a group here on WordPress now currently run by Shanah over at BionicBookWorm, where each week you are given a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category.
This week’s topic is the Top 5 Books That Made Me Laugh. If you are also participating in Top 5 Tuesdays this week or you have previously done a post on a really funny book then please leave your link in the comments and I will check out your post!
- Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
I would just like to point out that this list could easily have just been all of the books from this series as they all made me laugh like a loon on loon tablets. Georgia Nicholson and the rest of the Ace Gang are some of my favourite characters ever. I read these books over and over again when I was growing up and I wouldn’t hesitate to pick them up even now.
- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I feel like the only justification I need for having The Rosie Project in this list is the lovable Don Tillman. The end.
- The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon
When I first read this book I had no idea that it was a memoir as I just picked it up off my mum’s bookshelf and started reading. It was a hilarious, witty and completely outrageous and led me to become a big fan of Bryony and a frequent listener to her podcast which I’d also recommend listening to (she interviews Prince Harry in one of them!)
- Boy Meets Boy by David Leviathan
This book was a wild ride from start to finish. Everything from the characters to the plot was just so over the top and perfect. This book would also make a brilliant film *hint* Netflix *hint*.
- Starter for 10 by David Nicholls
I vividly remember laughing so hard I cried at parts of this book and then again when I watched the film. It is hilarious, brilliant and completely daft. (For any non-brits who don’t know what I mean by daft, its sort of a lovable way of saying silly or ridiculous).
Thanks for reading! What are some of your favourite books that made you laugh? Let me know in the comments below!
