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!
.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?
- the 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 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:
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:
So, 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?
