Friday Favorites – Funny Books

I’ve really missed doing Friday Favorites, and since no one was currently hosting it, Cait @ Functionally Fictional decided to jump into the gap. Each week, she provides a prompt, and I get to talk about my favorite books that fit the topic. Feel free to join in – the more the merrier!

This week’s prompt is funny books, and while I read a lot of serious, dark, and twisty fantasy and thrillers, I also have a lighter side that I like to indulge with rom-coms and the occasional fantasy that incorporates humor that makes me bust out laughing. So in no particular order, here are some of my favorite books that I found funny:

  1. The Life and Crimes of Hoodie Rosen by Isaac Blum. While it’s a book that tackles pretty serious issues, there were some really funny moments in it that made me laugh.
  2. Half a Soul by Olivia Atwater. This book was so cute and sweet and hilarious that I just had to include it on the list.
  3. The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen. It’s a rom-com with fantasy elements and while it’s hard to explain, it’s so cute and I couldn’t help but laugh at quite a few parts.
  4. Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. How could I leave this adorable rom-com off of the list? The witty banter had me cracking up throughout the book.
  5. Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert. While all of the Brown Sisters books are funny, this one was my favorite by far.
  6. Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher. This is one of the first times that I encountered humor in fantasy, and I absolutely loved it.
  7. Honey and Spice by Bolu Babalola. I fell in love with the story, and the witty banter and podcast clips were absolutely hilarious.
  8. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. This book uses some of my favorite tropes, and I loved the enemies to lovers vibe as well as the trademark Christina Lauren humor in the story.

What are some of your favorite humorous books?
