Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish blogging meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
Originally, I titled this post “Top 10 YA Novels That Will Make You Laugh.” But humor is subjective, and my laughs won’t be yours.
This one will make you cry, too. That’s just how it is with YA.
A deserted island full of beauty queens who have survived a plane crash? How can it not be funny? If you can, listen to it on audio, read by the amazing Libba Bray herself.
This is some old-school Gordon Korman that might be hard to find. Son of the Mob, a more recent title, is also funny—and more widely available.
Yes, it’s yet another YA novel about a terminally ill girl. But there are genuine laughs as well as heart here.
Oh, Bindy. How very delightfully tiresome you are. Another gem on audio.
You’re more likely to laugh if you’ve read the whole series—and it’s so very good, why haven’t you? Eugenides, one of my all-time favorite characters, can always find a little irony to appreciate.
Really more middle-grade than YA, but so appealing for young adult readers.
I am such a fan of Tiny Cooper. I’ve recommended this book to people who have read it without even a hint of a smile hovering around their lips. How is that possible?
Surprisingly fresh and well-written.
I can so relate to stories about recovering perfectionists.
