Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Today’s topic is Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like __________.
I’ve chosen to fill in the blank with Sarcastic / Hilarious Characters! I love when characters in books are funny and make me laugh. So here is a list of my top ten favourite books with characters who made me laugh. Enjoy! 🙂
1. The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare
William Herondale is amazing. He has a great sense of humour.
2. The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
Rose Hathaway is sassy and the things she says are pure gold.
Adrian Ivashkov also never failed to amuse me.
3. The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Ruby Oliver is hilarious. Her way of describing her life and the people in it is brilliant. I’m in love with her narration and can’t wait to read the second book in the series.
4. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
Greg is a brilliant character. The book is written in a very stream of consciousness style which is great. He tries to make even very serious situations light hearted. I really enjoyed his description of the “social chain” at his high school. This is an excellent read.
5. Paper Towns by John Green
All the characters made me crack up – Ben, in particular, with his beer sword. One of my all time favourite books.
6. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
Harper Jane Price is a fantastic narrator and Rachel Hawkins is a fantastic writer. This book is brilliant. The characters are great. The dialogue is wonderful. I laughed out loud so many times whilst reading this.
7. The Tracy Beaker Trilogy by Jacqueline Wilson
I read this one as a child but it still doesn’t fail to amuse me. Tracy Beaker makes me double up with laughter with the things she says and does. Although it’s a children’s book, I think Tracy will appeal to a lot of different audiences. She’s hilarious!
8. Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan
Percy is definitely one of the best narrators! He’s absolutely hilarious. I love his way of talking and his descriptions. I loved seeing him grow through the books as well. His narration becomes less childish as the series goes on, but it’s still fantastic.
In the spin off series, Heroes of Olympus, Leo Valdez is great. He’s rambunctious and loud and I love him.
9. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series by Jeff Kinney
I really like Greg in this series. He’s full of self pity and love for himself but I love him. His outlook on the world and the people in his life is fantastic. I absolutely loved reading these books as a child.
10. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Katy and Damon are great characters. They never fail to make me smile. A lot of this series is very serious but I love the jestful scenes. To be honest, this is on my list only because it needs to be ten things. xD Still, definitely worth a read!
