Top 10 books that made me laugh out loud

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl

Happy Tuesday! Today’s topic is books that made me laugh. This is one of the few topics where I actually had a hard time narrowing it down, as opposed to having a hard time finding enough books. Originally, I came up with over 20 books that made me laugh, and I’ve narrowed it down to these, in no particular order:

Dragon Wing by Margart Weis and Tracy Hickman – This one I’m actually currently reading. There’s one perspective – a dwarf – that really has me tickled. Each time I get a chapter from his pov, I find myself giggling like a madwoman.

Absolutely Boyfriend by Yuu Watase – This is a six volume comedic romance about robot boyfriends, heavy on the comedy. I reread it for the first time since high school earlier this year and really enjoyed it. It’s so ridiculous..

Black Butler by Yana Toboso – I read this one recently – early 2020 – and fell in love. It’s hilarious, on top of all of its other amazing qualities.

Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett – Again, a recent read. I wasn’t expecting this one to be funny but it really surprised me. It was hilarious. Especially any scenes with Clef, they cracked me up.

Mogworld by Yahtzee Chroshaw – I expected this one to be funny, as it’s written by the guy who does Zero Punction, but I still found myself surprised at how funny it was. This book was great.

Demon Diary by Kara – This is a seven volume comedy series about a young demon who has no idea what he’s doing being made into a demon lord. It’s cute and fluffy and so entertaining.

Life, The Universe, and Everything by Douglas Adams – I feel like Adams is an obvious choice for this list. This one is my favorite so far.

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks – The narration in this has a bit of comedy in it itself, but the one character Kip is hilarious. He’s one of my favorites.

The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud – This is a series I read back when I was a teen, and I remember cracking up at Bartimaeus. He’s a djinn and he’s so funny. So sassy.

Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi – While this isn’t a comedy persay, it has a lot of comedic elements that are portrayed very well through the art style. This is a good one.

And that’s it! Books that make me laugh tend to automatically get high marks from me. I can’t help it, I’m a sucker for a good joke.

  1. I hear you on Inuyasha (which anime I’ve also seen) and Black Butler is so much fun. But the others were all new to me, and it’s always wonderful when someone has Manga recs. Thank you, and Happy TTT
