Top 5 books that made me laugh

Whenever I come across topics like this one, I realize that I don’t read many books that are humorous. I was surprised to be able to list 5 of them for this post.

Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

I read this just a few days ago. It’s the second novel in the Witches subseries of the Discworld fantasy series. It’s about three witches who plot to overthrow a tyrant, and it was loads of fun to read. Pratchett’s novel are humorous fantasy, so there’s often something to chuckle at.

Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris

Since reading this book, I always recommend it around Christmas time to anyone looking to buy a book. It’s a short collection of anti-Christmas essays that are all hilarious. Whether or not you like the Christmas holidays, I highly recommend this book. The audio book is narrated by Sedaris and is really good.

The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell

This one was unexpectedly funny. I thought it would be dry and boring. I was so wrong. Bythell shares his diary entries about his day-to-day running a bookstore in Scotland. His dry sense of humor really appealed to me and his encounters with various people made this an entertaining read.

Moonstruck, Vol. 1: Magic to Brew by Grace Ellis, illus. by Shae Beagle

A comic book made this list! 😀 Moonstruck is a sweet comic book set in a college town. It’s about a young werewolf barista who goes on a date to a magic show that became disastrous when her friend, a centaur, is turned human. The story has fun moments that sometimes made me chuckle. The majority of them involves Chet, the centaur, but the “Ask a Know-It-All” advice column was also funny.

Evil Eye by Madhuri Shekar, narr. by Harsh Nayyar, Annapurna Sriram, Bernard White, Nick Choksi, Rita Wolf

This is an Audible Original I listened to last year and loved. It’s about a young Indian woman whose mother keeps pestering her to get married but when she does find a guy she likes, her mother seems to mistrust him. This was so hilarious that I kept laughing out loud at work. I thought the acting was well done and the story was very entertaining.

That’s it for me.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these.
