A few days more and I will be done with beckysblogs awesome 30-Day Book Challenge! 😀

So here’s the topic today:

DAY 26. – Book that makes you laugh out loud. 

I am not really a fan of funny books but after checking my goodreads, I found three awesome books that really made me laugh! 😀

Here are my answers!

Stupid is Forever by Miriam Defensor Santiago 

Stupid is Forever

First things first, who is Miriam Defensor Santiago? According to her Twitter account, she is a Philippine senator, one, if not only, of the most intelligent actually. She is also a Laureate of the Magsaysay Award for government service and she “Eats death threats for breakfast.”

According to the latest news, she is the most followed and liked senator in Twitter and Facebook? Why? Because her tweets and updates are both humorous and moving.

Her book, a certified best-seller here in the Philippines, is a compilation of her inspirational talks and speeches as well as her witty yet hard-hitting one-liner jokes and pick-up lines.

It is short yet sweet read and it is a book that is clearly scribbled by one of the most witty yet wise woman ever.

“Of course, I make no claim to originality in this compilation of my epigrams. My supporters find them funny, and my enemies presumably find them revolting. That’s because those villains are hardwired only for self-adulation.”

That’s part of this book’s introduction. If you want more dose of witty yet truthful words, check this out: Top 10 Wise Words from ‘STUPID IS FOREVER’ by Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago. 🙂

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)  by Graeme Simsion 

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)  is a short feel-good funny novel about Don Tillman, a genetics enthusiasts who we’re able to find love in unexpected way. The humor and the scientific element of the book is just so engrossing and entertaining at the same time.

Who could ever create a love story with an almost ‘abnormal’ leading man? Don Tillman is brave enough to go beyond the typical handsome and perfect lover boy. His bravery has created a witty, sometimes annoying, but definitely loveable character.

“But I’m not good at understanding what other people want.’
‘Tell me something I don’t know,’ said Rosie for no obvious reason.
I quickly searched my mind for an interesting fact.
‘Ahhh…The testicles of drone bees and wasp spiders explode during sex.”

There are a lot more of this in this book! 😀

Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks (Goodreads Author), Micah Sparks

Three Weeks With My Brother

In this novel, Nicholas and his brother Michael ‘Micah’ Sparks told their memorable trip together as well as their shared family and brotherhood tales.

There are chapters that is really amusing, especially during Micah and Nicholas’s childhood. Their brotherhood tales are just so funny and so relatable!

That’s it.

What are the novels that made you laugh?

Tagged: The Emoji Book Tag

Tagged

So I was tagged by Dimple of Enthralling Dimple with The Emoji Book Tag! So thanks Dimple! 🙂

This book tag is made by seven booktubers namely; Liz from lizlovesliteratureJenny from JellafySanaa from InkBonesBooksDylan from dylanbooksMax from WellDoneBooksVilde from vforvilde and Scott from Scott Place. 

The rules are simple, you just have to relate your five most-used or latest-used EMOJIs with your read books.

And because I am a certified emoji junkie, yes I love emojis, I am really giddy to do this tag.

So let’s start! ~

  • Laughing Emoji 

Stupid is Forever

Stupid is Forever by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago 

“Of course, I make no claim to originality in this compilation of my epigrams. My supporters find them funny, and my enemies presumably find them revolting. That’s because those villains are hardwired only for self-adulation.”

Witty pick-up lines and funny yet factual political sentiments and observations from no less than the best Filipino Senator! This laughter-inducing book is amusing but it doesn’t mean it’s non-sense! It isn’t!

  • Blushing Emoji

Stargirl (Stargirl, #1)

Stargirl bJerry Spinelli

“Her smile put the sunflower to shame.”

“She laughed, and the desert sang.”

“She was bendable light: she shone around every corner of my day.”

Isn’t it just so sweet! (blushes)

  • Screaming Emoji

Gone Girl

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

“I felt a queasy mixture of relief and horror: when you finally stop an itch and realize it’s because you’ve ripped a hole in your skin.”

What’s creepier than a psychotic woman who kills?

  • Sobbing Emoji

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

Me Before You bJojo Moyes

I kissed him, trying to bring him back. I kissed him and let my lips rest against his so that our breath mingled and the tears from my eyes became salt on his skin, and I told myself that, somewhere, tiny particles of him would become tiny particles of me, ingested, swallowed, alive, perpetual.

If you are not a crier, try reading this book. And then tell me if it was just me or this story is really heartbreaking.

  • Winking Emoji

I Am the Messenger

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

“It’s not a big thing, but I guess it’s true–big things are often just small things that are noticed.”

This is not a love story, so how is it related to the winking emoji? It’s because I fallen in love for Markus Zusak because of this book. Now I am reading The Book Thief! ❤

So there!

Now it’s your turn awesome bloggers:

Spread the blog love!
