We frequently enquire about many novels. We want them to move us, make us weep, make us feel less alone, and make us feel connected to others. We want them to make innovative and relevant statements while also addressing current societal challenges. However, there is a case to be made that asking a book to make us laugh is the toughest thing we could ask of it.

1. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

As a timid, overweight youngster who was terrified of her own bike as a child, Mindy Kaling’s work gives the impression that she is personally chatting with you about her amusing life experiences. This feeling is heightened by her success as a comedy writer and performer. You’ll feel like you and Mindy are best friends by the book’s conclusion, and you’ll know more inside jokes than you ever imagined.

2. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

In Me Talk Pretty One Day, David Sedaris describes his transition from New York to Paris with hilarious tales of his attempts to learn the language as well as ludicrous passages about his bizarre relatives, such as his brother, who constantly uses hip-hop lingo to his bewildered father. You should avoid reading this while eating or drinking because the stomach-busting laughter will cause you to sputter and choke.

3. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

Charlie Asher, a rather regular man who is chosen to be a “death merchant” to rescue the souls of the dead and safeguard them from the powers of the hereafter, is the story’s protagonist. His new work completely upends his life and sends the reader on a surreal adventure packed with such absurdity that it’s difficult to contain one’s laughter.

4. The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

This is an incredibly fun science fiction series that follows the exploits of Arthur Dent, a foolish Englishman who is spared from a galactic motorway just before the Earth is destroyed.

5. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

This amusing coming-of-age book shares startlingly authentic tales about dating, trying to fit in, and understanding that many of life’s most ridiculous and embarrassing experiences really define who we are.
