Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It combines what I love most in this world into one—lists, books, and blogging. It couldn’t be any better suited for me! Today’s list is all about getting a laugh. Let’s jump right into the book that have made me chuckle in the past.
1. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
I read this recently and some of his mementos are absolutely hilarious. He recounts serious tales of speech therapy as well as hilarious moments of scooping a turd out of a toilet bowl. A great, light read that leaves you with a couple giggles. If you want to learn more about here, here’s my full review.
2. Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Poehler is one of the funniest “authors” I have read. She is extremely raw and honest about her experiences, which is what leads to it being such a great and entertaining read. I’ve also given a full review of Poehler’s book, which you can find here.
3. Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand
This is funny in a totally different way from Poehler and Sedaris. This is a great beach read that makes you chuckle to yourself because of the sheer hilarity that ensues at a wedding when everything inevitably goes wrong.
4. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
So if you read my review, I didn’t really like this book. But I recently watched the movie in class and found it absolutely hilarious. Greg’s humor shines through in the character and leaves you laughing at the most inappropriate times.
5. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
I read this in high school and it is unbelievably dry humor, but if you like satire and deep humor, you will love this witty book.
Apparently I don’t read enough humorous novels, so take a gander at this list from the Huffington Post of 46 allegedly hilarious novels that are definitely going on my TBR list.
