I need to find me some funny!
I have been reading a lot of dark books lately. The World As We Knew It, Beautiful Creatures, Before I Fall, Crank etc. Don't get me wrong...they have been great books. But I'm feeling the need to lighten up just a bit. What I'm asking you for-because you are the experts in my humble opinion are some suggestions and recommendations for some laugh-out-loud books. So come on people-Help me find some funny!


  1. Anything by David Sedaris, the travel books by Bill Bryson. Good luck!

  2. I have read David Sedaris and you are right! He is laugh snort funny!

  3. I don't know if you've read these already but here are some funny books I've enjoyed:

    The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
    The Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan
    Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley (and sequel Still Sucks To Be Me)
    The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
    Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs
    Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern
    My Invisible Boyfriend by Susie Day
    The Possibilities of Sainthood by Donna Freitas
    The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
    How to Be Bad by Sarah Mlynowski, E. Lockhart, etc.
    Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors

  4. I have the PERFECT book. It is called Learn Me Good. Here is my review:

  5. I have not read any of her books, but the patrons at the library where I work say that Janet Evanovich is laugh-out-loud funny.

  6. I remember The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To by DC Pierson being pretty funny, a bit racy sometimes, but very funny.

  7. Thanks for all the great suggestions! I knew I could count on my bloggies!

  8. "Basket Case"/ "Skinny Dip" by Carl Hiassin, "A Dirty Job" or "Fool" by Christopher Moore, and "Big Trouble" by Dave Barry are all pretty hilarious.

    If you want more of a girlish tone, pick up "Agnes and the Hitman" by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. (

    Hope that helps!!
