Books that made me laugh – Funny Friday – Games and Avonlea

So many of you did the Top Ten Tuesday thing about the books that made you laugh that I couldn’t resist and create a post of my own. Yes, it took me a while, but I’ve got 142 books categorized as “funny” on Goodreads! Try to choose just a few out of these!

Obviously, I’m not going to limit myself to any number, but I won’t list each and every one of these books if you want to see them all simply visit my shelf here.

Or maybe I should?

Actually, when I’m thinking about it, I’d love to share my opinion about these books – all of them! But no, I won’t do it in one post. That would be waaaay too long. I’m just going to point out few books at a time and make a short series out of these. After I’m done with the funny reads, I might switch to something else :D. Maybe you have an idea to what? Any theme you have in mind? Let me know!

I couldn’t decide on the order – should I go with the highest rating? The date I’ve read them or maybe something else? So I’ll simply go alphabetically and choose all the interesting reads :D.

For today, I’ve got just two stories for you. Why only two? Because I actually own the paper version and I intend to add some photos :D. Well, I did promise a tour through my bookshelves, let’s make it a part of it!

Legend of the Twilight

.hack//Legend of the Twilight

A manga created by Tatsuya Hamazaki and Rei Izumi. You can find it on Goodreads. My rating for all three volumes: ★★★★.

What’s good about these books?

  • Legend of the Twilight 2the graphic is cute!
  • main characters are lovable
  • it’s about online gaming
  • the lazy ones can simply watch anime 😉 although it doesn’t follow exactly the same path
  • It has many funny moments – the character interactions, the in-game situations
  • the characters are cute 😛 [I totally had a crush on Balmung when I read it the first time!]

Anne of Green Gables series

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

A book I’ve read when I was a kid. Obviously, it was one of my school reads and I didn’t enjoy it that much back then. Now I can easily give this story ★★★★. Find it on Goodreads. Funny thing, I’ve never got into reading the whole series, even though I own eight out of nine books [well, technically my mom or someone else before me owned them, but I took possession of them since they were at the attic… :P]. This is a 1990 edition with some black and white illustrations. Here’s a sample:

Anne of Green Gables Anne of Green Gables

So yes, they are simple, but I love them. They still leave a lot to imagination and what else a kid needs, right?

What did I like about this book?

  • the strong-witted heroine
  • the funny situations she put herself into
  • the story was simply perfect
  • the green hair accident 😀
  • the friendship
  • Cuthberts were an awesome couple

Yes, this is a great book for kids, and from what I’ve heard the rest of the series is just as good. If you’ve never read them, maybe you should give it a try?

And just to add some more colors, here’s how each and every book cover from my series looks:

TV-Kitty-icon2So, how was it?
Should I continue or have I bored you already?

I won’t be adding photos to every post as I don’t own all of the books I’d like to present you. Some of the books will be Polish. And by that I mean they won’t have a translation, but I do hope some of the people from my country will see these posts too :).

Oh, and sine I’m planning on releasing these posts on Friday [I thought about Sunday, but Funny Friday sounds better than Funny Sunday] I guess I’ll be moving my graphic novel reviews to Sunday.

Oh and I’m renewing my question – what other types of books you’d like me to present you with?

  2. *high fives for stealing books from your parents’ attic* 😀

    I didn’t read Anne until last year and only because Goodreads happened to have a free download of it. Shame on me! But it sure was a good read! I’ve got part 2 lined up on my Kindle for…some day :D.

    After you’re done with funny, I’d like to see anthologies or short stories. I’m always looking for more awesome ones!
