Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

This week’s topic is actually a bit of a head-scratcher for me as I tend far more towards angsty reads but when I thought about it, many books I have thoroughly enjoyed have a healthy dose of humour as well as pathos. Laughing and crying go hand in hand for me, I guess…

books that made me laugh

1. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

This one is probably more cutely funny than laugh out loud hilarious but the humour is very much a part of the story and adds to its charm. One of my favourite YA reads.

2. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

One of my all-time favourite books (snowbaz for life!!) the humour mostly comes from a certain schoolboy vampire (Baz has a very dry sense of humour which just resonates with me a lot).

3. In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan

All of Sarah Rees Brennan’s books are pretty darn funny but this one is really the pinnacle! I love Elliot, Luke, and Serene (one of my favourite trio’s ever!)

4. Know Not Why by Hannah Johnson

Howie is a scream (even if his humour is hiding a lot of hurt). I love his group of friends and the easy and funny way they relate to each other. A feel-good read if there ever was one…

5. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

Monty. Ah, Monty. I do love him (and his complete and utter cluelessness!) He can be very witty and I just love him to bits. I can’t wait to read the newest book which is out this year.

6. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

This one has all the bants! Ahem, sorry, channelling Love Island-speak here! However, my point stands – the banter between Lucy and Joshua is perfect.

7. The Lightning-Struck Heart by T.J. Klune

T.J. Klune can certainly make you cry (like, a whole lot) but he also can write some hilarious dialogue and laugh-a-minute situations! The Lightning-Struck Heart is for sure his funniest offering (as yet, anyway).

8. From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata

I love all of Mariana Zapata’s books and she can definitely tickle my funny bone – I particularly love the connection between Ivan and Jasmine. Their banter and chemistry is off the charts.

9. Red Heir by Lisa Henry and Sarah Honey

This one made me giggle – a lot! I wasn’t sure going in but the book had me in stitches throughout. Such a fun cast of characters that get themselves into various sticky situations (and Pie! I LOVE Pie!)

10. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

This one has a lot of back and forth between the main character and her love interest and it is very entertaining and funny (though does have some drama here and there).
