5 Best Comedy or Humor books
Comedy or Humor book is something that I find from very few current authors. Although there are many romantic comedies in the market, I was actually looking for more than simply “boy meets girl” kind of novels. But I suppose making people laugh with one’s intelligence and wit is the hardest thing and I respect those authors who have tried at this part of the literature.
Let me share few of my favorite humor books. Let me know if you like them.
- Ineligible bachelors – Ruchita Misra (2011)
This is a story of a girl going to through a parade of eligible bachelor for she has reached the appropriate age of marriage according to her mom. It is a hilarious riot to read about various prospective candidates her mom has chosen for her and forced her to meet.
There is romantic twist to this story as well that you would love to read.
The author has chosen very simple comedy to express the story and it worked really well.
- I do, Do I? – Ruchita Misra (2014)
This one is the sequel of the Ineligible bachelors. It is the story after she has chosen the man she wishes to marry.
The story runs through the insanely hilarious plot including her Boss who thinks she is deaf, her would be mother in law who is eager to make her kitchen expert and her equally crazy friends who have turned into nauseatingly mushy couples.
Give it a go. It is a quick read that will refresh your mind.
- The house BJ built – Anuja Chauhan (2015)
This is book is the sequel of famous “Those pricey Thakur girls” (2013). The first one is about five daughters of BJ and their life and the second one is mainly concentrated on Bonu, daughter of the second sister. Both of them are wonderful books. If not for the story, you should be reading this for the excellently portrayed characters.
I mistakenly read this second book first and fell in love with it. It is a story of five sisters wonderfully different from each other. I loved the character of Chandu, the third sister. The characters are explained in such ease, you might find similarity in you real life.
I have never loved character oriented books but these two swept me off my feet.
I absolutely suggest these two books.
- Mrs. Funnybones – Twinkle Khanna (2015)
Let me declare first that this is the most favorite of mine in this list from the highest selling female author of 2015, Twinkle Khanna.
I never read her articles before I picked up this book and soon enough this became one of the few I like to read more than once. I loved her wit and sense of humor.
I love how she has touched every possible thing under the sun, from raising a child to Kim Kadarsian. She has mentioned film industry such beautifully that you can actually relate them to your neighbors.
The tagline of this book is so apt because you can actually feel her like one of us struggling through life. The sarcasm is the weapon of her writing and more often than once it will make you split in laughter.
Please read this book.
- Haveli – Zeenat Mahal
Sadly this book is only available in kindle version. But hey! you can read it in kindle app in your phone or tab right?
This is story is set in ancient Pakistan background. It is a story about Chandini, the lead character, an orphan raised by her stern grandmother and her longing for love.
Zeenat has wrapped the story in beautiful humor and although the pseudo adjectives used in the place of the character names (Chandini as ‘C’, Grandmother as ‘The broad’ and so on) might confuse you a little, I must say it has added the to the humor.
I really look forward your suggestions. So please please leave a comment if you liked it. Also, please follow me for more book related posts.
