Top Ten Tuesday: You’re having a laugh


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic :

  2. Ink and Sigil by Kevin Hearne
  3. Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hostaken and Melissa Prusi
  4. Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
  5. Where Gods Fear to Go by Angus Watson (this is the third book – I recommend the entire series – made me lol so much.
  1. The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
  2. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  3. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
  4. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

    The Stranger Times was brilliant! Great selection of books!

    What a fascinating list, Lynn! I’ve read half the list – and agree with all of them, but am very intrigued with the Angus Watson books:)). Thank you for sharing!

    I can’t believe I forgot about the Princess Bride while making my list. That’s a good one to include.

    Hollow Kingdom definitely had an interesting sense of humor! I’d also like to read more by Christopher Moore, from the one experience I’ve had with his work, I can tell he’s REALLY funny!

    Great list! I really want to read The Lies of Locke Lamora!

    I’ve only read one of these and I’m sure you can guess which one 😀 I do have a couple of them on my TBR though, and of course I must read the sequel to Stoker’s Wilde as well. Did that have the humour of the first book?

    I’m not surprised to see The Hitchhikers’ Guide in your list, while I’m intrigued by the appearance of Ink and Sigil: this book piqued my interest, and I believe the main character is a delightful one, but the fact that the story is also laugh-out material makes that a priority for me! 🙂

    Christopher Moore is always good for a laugh! I really need to read more of his books at some point. Great list, Lynn!
