Books That Made Me… Laugh

Today I’d like to welcome Mary from M’s Bookshelf onto the blog for my ‘Books That Made Me…’ feature! The word she was given was ‘laugh’ and here and are books she chose!

Books That Made Me… Laugh

Thank you so much Jenny for having me on you fabulous blog and including me!

When I first got “assigned” the theme of “LOL books”, I wasn’t really sure if I could think of a book that made me really, really laugh. And then I read Connectivity and Desperately Ever After.

18484171Connectivity by Aven Ellis

 It’s a ‘classic’ boy meets girl love story. Only the boy is the girl’s boss, a hugely successful business man… and British. The main character, Mary-Kate, has a wonderful sense of humor. What makes her and the story funny though, is her easy, flirty banter with William. Her boss. It was so entertaining and funny to see both of them flirt with the line between professionalism, and their true feelings… which usually ended up with hilarious puns and inside jokes at work, and just cheeky honesty at home. Aven alsoArcSoft_Afbeelding227 included William’s reactions to MK’s blogposts, as well as their text and emails. Sometimes funny, sometimes just so darn cute! Aven put a smile on my face from the beginning of the book until well after I finished it.

Desperately Ever After by Laura Kenyon

Desperately Ever AfterThis one I read very recently, and I’m still not over how BRILLIANT that book is. The book follows the life of a group of ‘girlfriends’ in their 20’s (… going on 30). Only they’re not just any girls, there Princesses. Meet Belle, Cinderalla “Cindy”, Rapunzel, Snowwhite “Snow”, Dawn (Sleeping Beauty) and Penelopea (the one with the magic peas)… and there ‘Ever After’. It’s sarcastic, it’s flirty, it’s cheeky, it’s hilarious! Laura gave those girls and their stories such an interesting, contemporary spin with some magic and lots of humor. I couldn’t stop reading and my cheeks hurt from grinning. I haven’t shut up about this book since I read it. My review for Desperately Ever After by Laura Kenyon is coming to M’s Bookshelf on the 13th June as part of a Fiction Addiction Book tour!

And of course, I cannot write something about laughing and books without mentioning, you guessed it, Mr. Ronald Billius Weasley

  4. That is a hard question, kudos to Mary for being able to think up of a few books. I can’t answer that questions because… I don’t think there was a book that made me laugh. Chuckle, yes, but laugh out loud? I have to say none.

    1. Ah really? There’s not MANY books that have made me laugh out loud but I can think of 1 or 2 🙂 The gifs Mary sent me did make me laugh though!

      1. Yup, sadly. Love those Ron moments 🙂
