It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for creating this meme.

This Week’s Topic: Books That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

  1. Paranormals of Avynwood series by Micelle Dare: I absolutely love this series. It’s intense, but it’s also so funny. Especially parts involving Solomon. He’s my absolute favorite character in the series!
  2. Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich: This whole series is a riot! Especially all of the mishaps that happen trough the entire series involving Stephanie Plum and whoever is tagging along wit her! I’ve been reading this series for a decade or longer!
  3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett: Being transparent here, this book hits heavy subjects. It’s not a real light and fluffy novel. However, the characters are a great comic relief. It’s been a decade or longer since I’ve read the book, but there were certain characters in the book hat just made it so great!
  4. Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie: I was introduced to this book recently by my girlfriend. It’s one of her absolute favorite books. It pulled me in from the very first line. It was just so quirky and fast paced. I absolutely loved it. I will be reading it again eventually.
  5. The Complications of Pi by RK Phillips: I related so hard to the main character. Other than the character being so smart! She’s quirky and anxious. She’s also a bit of a klutz! Like I am. The whole novel is a riot from beginning to end. I’m glad I got to read it.
  6. The Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews: While I really adore all of the books in this series. For this one, I’m mainly going to focus on the first three. I absolutely loved the main character in the first three and I think she’s a riot. Her attitude and sass just make the whole book so enjoyable.
  7. A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones: Sunshine is the main character. She just has this personality that I can’t get enough of. I also really love the dynamic between her and her daughter. It’s so witty! I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!
  8. Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Keri Maniscalco: I got sucked into this book from the very first page. It was humorous and engaging. I definitely have plans to read this book more than once. I especially love Thomas. He just cut’s so much serious out of the story and pretty much adds a great deal of enjoyment to the series.
  9. Daughter of Winter series by Skye McKinnon: I didn’t think I was going to like this book at first. I thought the main character was really whiny and immature. I kept reading though. I’m very glad I did. It gets better as the book goes along. It also helps that the banter between the main character and her guards is so entrancing. They click so fast. You’d think they knew each other for ages instead of mere days.
  10. The Paper Magician by Charlie N Holmberg: I didn’t think this book would be funny in the beginning. Then other characters were added and it’s just hard not to find them absolutely hilarious. I’ll let anybody who wants to read it read it for themselves and not ruin it. I want to own physical copies of these one day so I can read them as many times as I want. I do have them all in audio. But yeah.

There’s my ten! I really hope you enjoyed! Have you read any of them? If not, I fully recommend all of them! Just click on the link and it’ll take you to the page! I recommend hitting CTRL first so you don’t leave this page. What are your top ten funny reads?

Top Ten Tuesday: Valentine’s Freebie

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for creating this meme.

This Week’s Topic:Valentine’s Day/Love Freebie

My Choice: Book series I want to read this year.

  1. The Giver Quartet by Louis Lowry: The Giver was one of my favorite books of all time. I’ve read it a few times. I didn’t find out it was a series until a couple years ago. Whenever they adapted it into a movie. I’ve been wanting to read them ever since. I just got my hands on them recently. I’m excited!
  2. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard: So I actually watched the television show to this many years ago. I only watched the first two seasons. I didn’t get around to wanting to read the books until about three or so years ago. I read the first book almost all the way and set it down. Last year, I read the first two books. This year, I want to read them again and finish the series.
  3. House of Night by P.C and Kristin Cast: In June, there’s going to be a readathon that encourages you to reread books. My girlfriend wants to read the series again and finish it. She doesn’t really remember much about it or where she left off. I figured I’d take this as an opportunity to reread the series. I might even listen to them all if I have them all in audio.
  4. House of Night: Otherworld by P.C. and Kristin Cast: I was supposed to have read these all for a blog tour that I participated in last year. I never really got the chance to get around to them. I want to make up for that. Hoping to read them all after I read the House of Night ones. We shall see. Either way, I’m excited for them!
  5. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: This has been on my want to read list for years. I don’t even remember how long it’s been. I know that I finally got the entire series on Book Outlet last year when I was under the influence of champagne. That’s a long story for another blog.
  6. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer: I can’t even remember how long I’ve wanted to read this series. I remember my mom owned them. I was always tempted to pluck them off her shelves when she wasn’t looking and put them on my own. I saw them on Book Outlet for a great price recently and got them. I got the UK covers. I love them. I can’t wait to finally read them.
  7. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: I’ve already read this series and loved it. I’ve been trying to get my girlfriend into the series. We tried to read it together last year, but we wound up stopping. I’m hoping that we pick it back up again this year. I am confident that she will absolutely love it. And that by the end of the series, we will both consider Rose Hathaway our book girlfriend. She may be totally into Dimitri by the end as well.
  8. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: So I have read the first book in this series about two or three times. And every time I do, I’m fully planning on reading the other five books. However, I never wind up doing so. I have all of the series in ebook, physical books, and audiobooks. I have no excuse. Other than the fact that I kind of know things that happen beyond the first book. I usually don’t mind spoilers, but yeah.
  9. Fallen by Lauren Kate: I started to read this series last year. I was so happy that after all these years I finally got it. I just had to set it down sadly. I fully plan on diving back into the series and reading it fully! Hopefully this year!
  10. The Immortals by Alyson Noel: This is another series that’s been on my list to read for a very long time. I also finally obtained this series last year. I really am looking forward to finally reading it. It’s on the huge list to read this year! With luck!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2020

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for creating this meme.

This Week’s Topic: Books I Meant to Read in 2020 but Didn’t Get to

  1. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong: I really couldn’t get into this one right away. I wound up setting it down hoping I would get into it after some time.
  2. People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd: I was almost done with this but wound up setting it down for some reason and then never picked it back up. I’ll probably start it all over again in all honesty.
  3. Caste by Isabel Wilkerson: I had this on my list to read. I just didn’t get around to it. I even bought an audiobook to listen to it. I’ll get to it. It’s still on my list.
  4. Prisoners of History by Keith Lowe: I’m not sure the reason I never got to this. I know it was on my list because I got a review copy to read it. It looks like it will be a great and very educational read.
  5. What Unbreakable Looks Like by Kate Mclaughlin: I really want to read this as soon as I possibly can. I’ve been wanting to read it for months. I just haven’t been able to get to it yet.
  6. The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell: This book was a book club book for November of last year. I think. I wound up not really reading that much in November so I never really got to it.
  7. In The Lion’s Den by Barbara Taylor Bradford: This is a sequel to a book I read awhile back. I won a copy of the sequel a long time ago. The release date has been pushed back a few times because of Covid. I still wound up not being able to get to it somehow.
  8. More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn: This is another book that I was really excited to read. I’m very disappointed with myself that I never got around to reading. I hope to read it really soon.
  9. Diamond City by Francesca Flores: I can’t say why I didn’t read it when planned. I did check out an audiobook from the library. I’m hoping that gives me the push I need to get it read.
  10. The Escape Room by Megan Goldin: This is a book I was curious about. I think I was kind of afraid to read it . Not really sure why. I’ll read it soon. In all actuality.
