Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books that Will Make You Laugh

The theme for this week's Top Ten Tuesday is ten books that will make you laugh. I love to laugh so this should be a piece of cake. ;)
These are in no particular order.
  1. The Martian by Andy Weir
  2. Leave it to Psmith or The Golf Omnibus by P.G. Wodehouse- Really any book by Wodehouse is guaranteed laughs. 
  3. Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen- Most all of Austen's novels will make me laugh at some point but especially those two. 
  4. The Pushcart War by Jean Merrill
  5. Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare
  6. On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson 
  7. The Best Things in Life: A Contemporary Socrates Looks at Power, Pleasure, Truth and the Good Life by Peter Kreeft
  8. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain 
  9. Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll 
  10. The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde 
  11. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
  12. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson 
I did some serious cutting down of this list to try and make it ten (it used to be about twenty) but I simply couldn't cut it down anymore. These are the books that just about guarantee me a laugh every time I read them.

  1. Yay for someone else who knows about The Phantom Tollbooth! And P&P and Alice and Much Ado! :)

  2. Yes to The Importance of being honest and P & P; absolutely enjoyable! :D
    I judged The Martian as a serious one, without reading it. Though, Sci-fi isn't my cup of tea, now I'm a tidbit tempted to read it now.

    1. It's serious in some ways but most of all it's just a bowl of laughter!

  3. How could I leave off Phantom Tollbooth!

    Love your list.
