Five Favorite: Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Books

“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.

What makes something “funny” is a seriously suggestive and specific cocktail of sense of humor, timing, and vocabulary – something which print does not necessarily get across; punctuation just can’t always carry the weight of cadence or facial expression the way auditory and visual mediums do. Nevertheless, there are some books on my tbr list that purport to be funny enough that I at least crack a smile (if not actually laugh). Here are my five favorite.
