Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
So this weeks topic is actually meant to be ‘Top Te Books That Will Make You Laugh’ but I don’t really read that many ‘funny’ books. I’m more of a ‘books that will rip my heart to pieces and make me ugly cry’ type person. So I really didn’t think I would be able to do this topic.
But then I started looking through the books that I have read and realised that there are some books that I laughed at whilst reading, and some characters that made me laugh a lot too. So I’m focusing on them instead!
Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist
The whole premise of this book is amusing, and as the main character is very much a Bridget Jones style character who is put in a very awkward position of having to give sex advice with no experience of having ever had sex.
The Mortal Instruments
Jace gets a bit damaged and broody the further you get into this series, but at the very beginning (and during good moments through the rest of the series) he is cocky and sarcastic and just absolutely brilliant. His comments often made me laugh.
The Winner’s Curse . The Winner’s Crime . The Winner’s Kiss
When we first meet him he is kind of scary looking and we are unsure if he is going to hurt our MC Arin. But then we get to know him, and his friendship with Arin turns into a bit of a bromance and he becomes halarious.
Addicted to You . Addicted for Now . Addicted After All
I’m totally counting this as three! But I’ve put them together because it’s their bromance which makes me laugh the most. Especially the relationship between Ryke (a f*ck you, over protective, mountain climbing kind of guy) and Connor (the well educated, well dressed, well spoken guy) which at times is just hilarious.
Cinder . Scarlett . Cress . Winter . Stars Above
Another character who is great with the cocky sarcastic one liners and who the Lunar Chronicles would have so much less without. He is the comedic relief throughout the entire series, and his friendship with Cinder and their back and forth banter kept me laughing through the entire thing.
Emerge . Embrace . Entice . Endure
I really loved this series because of the really great group of characters created by S.E.Hall. But mostly I love it because of Sawyer and his man whoring but lovable ways. He made me laugh through out this entire series, and I especially loved seeing him as a parent in the final book and his totally hypocritical view on how his teenage daughter should not be wearing a bikini because then all the horny boys would be chasing her around the pool!
Where Rainbows End/Love, Rosie
She is blunt, sarcastic and doesn’t soften her words at all, but she is always there for Rosie and the majority of the time if the only one talking any sense! She made me laugh so much with her various emails and texts to Rosie in the book. I really loved Ruby in the movie adaptation of this book too, she was exactly who I wanted her to be and made me laugh so much!
