Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Books That Made Me Laugh

Whoa, I’m actually doing something different! I’ve been participating in the Top Ten Tuesday meme (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) for years, but just wasn’t feeling the topics for the next few weeks. So this is me, shaking things up, and doing the Top 5 Tuesday meme instead! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Bionic Bookworm, who posts the month’s topics at the start of each month. For April, the topics are “positive, happy, motivating, and distracting” — works for me!

Today’s topic is Top 5 Books That Made Me Laugh.

Just thinking about this topic makes me happy! Here are my top 5:

1) Texts From Jane Eyre by Mallory Ortberg: Such awesome, literary silliness. (review)

2) Heads Will Roll by Kate McKinnon: Okay, this isn’t technically a book… but it’s an Audible Original production, and it’s hilarious, so that’s good enough for me. (review)

3) My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran & Larissa Zageris: What could be more fun than a choose-your-own-adventure Victorian romance? It’s a blast, and it made me giggle. (review)

4) P is for Pterodactyl by Chris Carpenter: A super-fun alphabet book that’s sure to baffle and amuse all sorts of readers. I loved it.

5) A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore: I could have gone with almost any Christopher Moore book, but this one especially delights me and always makes me laugh. I mean, there are squirrel people! Among other weird things…

    • They really are! Heads Will Roll absolutely cracked me up, and since I listened while walking, I’m sure I looked like a crazy person at times, laughing randomly in public.

  2. I haven’t read any of these. I did try a Christopher Moore book once, but I couldn’t get into it. I think it was The Stupidest Angel. I DEF want to check out Texts from Jane Eyre and My Lady’s Choosing. Those sound brilliant!

    (I have a choose your own adventure zombie book and it’s my FAV!)

    • If you like the zombie book, you’ll probably love My Lady’s Choosing! Christopher Moore is really silly — I enjoyed The Stupidest Angel, but I think that one is more enjoyable if you’ve read his other books, because he references a lot of earlier characters and situations.

    • The funny thing is, I decided to go with Top 5 Tuesday this week because the TTT topic didn’t appeal to me… but then found out that I’d read the list wrong and today’s TTT topic was one I actually would have done. That’s okay, it’s nice to shake things up and try new memes. 🙂
