Hey everyone, and welcome back to another Top 5 Tuesday! For me, books that make me laugh are a rather important part of enjoying a book! So let’s dive right in…
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Although I didn’t enjoy the first book that much – this book was everything to me, and because of one thing… the banter! The banter set me off into peals of laughter, and the banter made me love the characters more, and therefore enjoy the book more.
I know it’s a bit of an odd thing to love so much about a book when there are so many other things like characters and setting and storyline but this just did it for me!

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
I have talked about this series sooo many times in this blog, so why not talk about it again?! I love it so much – and yes, I absolutely love it because of the characters – and the the way the book is written, and the discussions between the characters – and the things that happen – it just completely cracks me up – which is one of the sole reasons why I love this series so much.
I don’t usually love MG but this one is an all-time favourite! See my review here.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This book was a shocker. I had no idea I’d love it as much as I did, and one of the reasons I loved it so much was – amazing world-building and storyline aside… the humour.
The humour absolutely topped it off for me and brought it up to 5 stars. I’m not sure, now that I think about it, whether I mentioned it in my original review or not, but anyhow I’m mentioning it here 😀

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
It’s no secret on this blog that I love this book with all of my heart, and love the movie just as much. The characters are just everything to me.
This book made me double over with laughter to the extent where I got many odd stares. In the plane, when I watched the movie, I had several people giving me odd looks while I desperately tried (and failed) to suppress my laughter.
I mean what can I say? I just love this book so much – I love it because of it’s important message, but also because of the humour delivered with it – and that you can still laugh even when times are hard. See my review here.
Lifelike by Jay Kristoff
When I read the synopsis for the book – for some reason it never occurred to me I might find anything in this book funny. The thing is, everything in this book seems to be so serious, and people are in such danger, and the stakes are so high that for some reason it just didn’t occur to me that I may put this book under top 5 books that made me laugh… until, of course, it made me laugh (haha).
Once again, it’s really just the banter that does it, and once again, I made great effort to suppress my laughter and failed utterly by waking up my sister (she wasn’t very pleased about it, I must say).
So those are my top 5 books that made me laugh! What are yours? Speak soon!
