Top 5 Favorite Funny Finds

Welcome back! Today’s genre–humor–is super fun because who doesn’t love to laugh, right? πŸ˜€ *sings song from Mary Poppins* *straightens face*

A joyful heart is good medicine and here is some…

The Kitten Files series by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick (which I’ve actually only read two of so far–yes, I’m behind. Be shocked.) is really the most hilarious and adorable thing ever. You’ve read books about talking cats, well this one can WRITE! And she’s an “assistant” to a detective and very snarky. I’ve enjoyed these complicated but very safe/lighthearted mysteries.


The Father Christmas Confessions by Emily Ann Benedict was a highlight for me last year. I read it to myself in November, then aloud to Anna in December. It was that good. πŸ˜€ Quite humorous with a surprising depth and heart to it, this book was the perfect Christmas read for me. πŸ˜‰ I laughed out loud sometimes over the main characters’ dynamic, and all the hidden references were quite fun. πŸ˜‰ (And I hear there’s a sequel which I really need to get my hands on…)Β (Read my full review here.)


This book, Martin and Marco by Jonny Jimison, is actually a graphic novel. And as you can probably tell from what today’s genre is… it. cracked. me. up. XD The entire book is so quotable, and the second book is just as hilarious and adventuresome and wacky. (Read my slightly crazy review here.)


Someone actually recommended The Brixton Brothers series by Mac Barnett to me during the very first Five Fall Favorites party, and here they are now. That’s pretty ace. πŸ˜‰ My favorite thing about this series is how it totally makes fun of, celebrates, and plays with the cliches of the kid detective genre. The concept of the first one (scary librarians) cracked me up to no end, but the plot of the second one surprised me with how complicated it was. (Read my reviews of the entire series here. I’d really only recommend books one and two.)Β 


This lovely adventure, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein, was a nice surprise from my local library. Chock full of literary references, clever clues, and a fun plot–this was definitely my kind of book. πŸ˜‰ Seriously, who wouldn’t love a Wonka-like character who literally speaks in book titles?? πŸ˜€ I was able to share it with my younger siblings which is always fun, and they tell me I must read the second book. πŸ˜‰ (Read my full review here.)

  1. *sits down on bench beside Kate and reads over her shoulder* I’ve gotten all the Kitten flies read now, and yes, I laughed over them. I keep hearing about the Brixton Brothers. Perhaps I should check our library for them.

  2. I need to get some of these! Also, if you’re looking for a humorous read…. You’ve GOT TO CHECK OUT Brandon Sanderson’s “Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians”! It’s just, it’s, I… *dies from the wonderfulness of it’s humor*
