Top Ten Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

Posted February 22, 2021 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 25 Comments

Welcome to another TTT! And thank you to Claire @ Book Lovers Pizza for suggesting this fun topic! I love books that make me laugh, so this topic is right up my alley. It should surprise no one that my books are all romances… because it’s not even worth reading a book unless there’s romance in it (except I do love mystery/thriller, but those are rarely funny).

Twice Shy and You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
Sarah’s kind of humor is my kind of humor. Just follow her on Twitter and you’ll get a taste of it, but both of these books have so much heart and had me laughing so, so much. Maybell in Twice Shy has some of the best inner monologues. She’s so funny. And the relationship is YDEO is full of hilarious sabotage and shenanigans. Both books have such deep concepts as well, so they’re well rounded and wonderful.

Hotshot Doc by R.S. Grey
Josie is the young teen sister of the heroine. I don’t think I have ever loved a kid in a book more. She is so, so funny. She sees and hears everything, and she really loves her sister. Her relationship with Matt is so cute. One night, he stays over at their place because the weather is bad and he can’t drive home. He sleeps on the couch, and Josie is so concerned that he’s going to have to go to bed without a book to read that she forces The Hunger Games on him.

Call Me Maybe by Cara Bastone
This is on audiobook only, and I loved it! The narrators used the best tones of voices to convey humor and sarcasm, so I laughed even easier than I would have if I’d just read it. Vera is a character, too. She’s so funny and kind of dramatic.

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt
Heidi is hilarious. She’s super awkward, and would rather roll into the bushes and hide after falling than just get up and face her hot neighbor… which is what she does. And when she tries to read a sexy scene in a book? Gold.

The Christmas Pact by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
This was such a fun listen! I love a good fauxmance (as you know), and this one was delightful. The two main characters share a name, but in reverse. He’s Kennedy Riley, and she’s Riley Kennedy. They also work for the same company, and keep getting each other’s emails. She politely forwards his along, but he gets nosey and reads them all… and then forwards them along with his comments/thoughts/musings. I just loved it.

The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare
It actually really surprises me that I didn’t review this one, because I had so many happy feelings from it! I loved our animal-loving heroine and our hero who is reluctant to admit he’s got a soft, squishy core. It was also so funny. Tessa really hit it out of the park with this one!

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
I absolutely could not ever leave CLo out of a topic like this one. After the entire wedding party except Olive and Ethan gets food poisoning and there’s still a non-refundable honeymoon to go on… why shouldn’t they go together? A free trip to Hawaii is worth putting up with your enemy, right? Watching these two people who really hate each other pretending to be newlyweds is so much fun.

Save the Date by Morgan Matson
The family in this book is so, so funny. And oh my, everything that could possibly go wrong for this wedding pretty much does! It’s hilarious, if not a little unbelievable how unlucky this family is! There’s a suit mix-up, electrical problems, gardening problems, and more. There’s so much going on at once that I found myself tearing through the pages to figure out how each issue was resolved. Honestly, this book would make such an amazingly fun and funny movie.

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
I was bound to mention this one. It’s perfect and hilarious and swoony and deep. All the things I love.

What books have made you laugh out loud?
And if you have any romancey funny books, tell me!
I need more rom-coms and funny characters in my life.

  1. Hallo, Hallo everyone,

    Despite a hard February, I am sharing a respun TTT focusing on Jane Austen in case you want to come by for a visit today. I haven’t been able to be as active on my blog the past two months but I’m hoping to resume my personal TTT entries in March whilst sorting out my new ‘balance’ in life as Feb was just upturnt to the extreme as far as life shifts and transitions were concerned. Hope everyone else is having a kinder month.

    I’ve only read the last two but I thought they were pretty funny. One of the funniest rom com books I read was a YA about a teen at a new school who decides she doesn’t want any friends because it’s too painful when her parents drag her to the next place. So she tries to be as weird as possible but it doesn’t work. How Not to Be Popular by Jennifer Ziegler.

    The other funny book I read recently was Dear Mrs Bird by A.J. Pearce, although it has sad bits too.

    I liked The Ex Talk; are you enjoying?

    I’m very excited to get to Save The Date if it’s that full of funny!

    Mine are mostly so mainstream I have absolutely nothing interesting to say — it seems I mostly read pretty serious books — but I did somehow manage to come up with 10 and I don’t want them to go to waste despite my lack of a post, so:

    1. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Mindy Kaling
    2. Bossypants – Tina Fey
    3. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened – Jenny Lawson
    4. Furiously Happy – Jenny Lawson
    5. Hyperbole and a Half – Allie Brosh
    6. Attachments – Rainbow Rowell
    7. Confessions of a High School Disaster – Emma Chastain
    8. Frosty: A Raccoon To Remember – Harriet E. Weaver
    9. Hit The Road – Caroline B. Cooney

    Plus, as I’m finding out during this reread, the Harry Potter series can still get me to crack up. Quips all over the place.
