In reading so many books, I’ve come across several that carry a sense of humor that stands out, even though they’re not classified as humor. So in the spirit of April Fool’s Day and all the fun and humor that’s sure to go on, I’ve come up with 10 books that I think you’ll find entertaining.
- Ghost Hand by Ripley Patton (read the review)
When any part of your body could come out as a ghost part (hand, nose, butt), there are sure to be some awkward and hilarious situations.
- Bedtime Stories for Grown Ups by Cearuil Swords (read the review)
How can you not laugh when someone tells a fairytale-esque bedtime story about buying a car, or being a very busy mother?
- The Amazing Wolf Boy by Roxanne Smolen (read the review)
Being a teenager is hard. Turning into a werewolf, moving to a new area, and falling in love? It’s a recipe for lots of laughter and tears.
- Penny White and the Temptation of Dragons by Chrys Cymri (read the review)
Chrys’s books carry that delightful British sense of humor, and when Vicar Penny discovers that the fantasy creatures she’s always loved do exist (after reading a dying dragon his last rights), she’s plunged into a world destined to produce some funny business.
- The Gift of the Unicorn by Chrys Cymri (read the review)
Three words – A Mammoth Mistake. If nothing else, this book is worth it purely for that story.
- Falling For your Madness by Katharine Grubb (read the review)
A seriously old-fashioned man attempts to woo a modern gal by giving her the reins on the relationship. A very strict set of rules bound to cause tension and colorful sparks.
- Knotted by Quenby Olson (read the review)
This modern take on Pride and Prejudice puts an adorably awkward young woman in the midst of her father’s remarriage to woman about her age.
- The Rogue Retrieval by Dan Koboldt (read the review)
A smooth illusionist is introduced to a world with real magic, and his love of pop culture references provide plenty of comic relief in this fantasy adventure.
- The Syndicate by Sophie Davis (review forthcoming)
Time travel to 1920’s Paris with a snarky but loveable sidekick? Romance, mystery, glamor, danger, and more make this book a knock-out.
- The Rising by Ryan Troske (review forthcoming)
A young man finds he has powers that set him apart. And when he goes to a school for those like him, he finds out just how much damage a teenager can cause.
And if you love humor, I think you’ll enjoy the snark unicorn in my latest book: Banned, Part 1 of Running Toward Illumia.
