message 1: by Tammy (last edited May 01, 2009 03:10PM) (new)

Tammy I'm surprised that SEP's Nobody Baby But Mine wasn't added to the list until today. Sure, it had its serious moments. But I laughed hysterically when he called her a "Cereal Killer"!

And SEP's Match Me If You Can is all about humor. Airhead meets Alpha Male Sports Agent. The best parts were when the kid (Pipi) kept stealing Heath's cell phones and he commented that she would be a felon before she reached 1st grade.


message 2: by Nisha (new)

Nisha I personally love SEP's Natural Born Charmer the best and I literally laughed out loud during class, so it wind in my book. SEP is my favorite contemp writer. You can't really do better than her.


message 3: by Kelly (new)

Kelly what about Sarah Mason? Playing James, Society Girls and Party Girl. Playing James especially was LAUGH OUT LOUD funny.


message 4: by Derya (new)

Derya I'd like to vote only for the first half of Good in Bed, which is hilarious.


message 5: by Njeshi (new)

Njeshi All sophie KInsella books are amazing.they will leave you begging for more!


message 6: by Nada (new)

Nada Nice list! Books by Sophie Kinsella are by far some of the most funniest books I have ever read, and I am glad you have one of my personal favorite "Can You Keep a Secret?" on top of the list!


message 7: by Brittany B. (new)

Brittany B. There are many books here that are great, but not meant to be funny.
For ex.: Beyond a Highland Mist is great, but not a funny read... IMO I don't think IAD series is funny either.

Still it's a great list!


message 8: by Booklovinglady (last edited Mar 30, 2013 06:30AM) (new)

Booklovinglady There are some odd titles on this list, as I can't see how anyone could 'laugh out loud' while reading excellent but serious books like Jane Austen's Emma and Northanger Abbey, or Dickens' Bleak House.

Personally I love the historical romances by Georgette Heyer and have read all of them. And yes, most of those can still make me laugh out loud, especially The Grand Sophy which is still my all time favourite when it comes to Georgette Heyer's historical romances :-)

Northanger Abbey was a satire. Maybe you haven't read it in a while, but the first page had me laughing out loud. I think Austen's works are really funny. (Though I'm not the one who added them to this list.)

But I agree with you about Dickens' Bleak House. The title kind of says it all. :)


message 10: by willaful (new)

willaful Austen is very funny. Just because her books are classics and you can write scholarly papers about them doesn't mean they're dark.


message 11: by Jeri (new)

Jeri If you want laugh-out-loud romance that's sexy and quirky, read In the Stars by Sabrina Simon! Engaging characters in a story that's just different: a pot-pourri of sex, sports, astrology, the real dish on girl-talk, and humor in abundance.

Ardie Ford Nisha wrote: "I personally love SEP's Natural Born Charmer the best and I literally laughed out loud during class, so it wind in my book. SEP is my favorite contemp writer. You can't really do better than her. "

She is by far my favorite author but wish she would write faster as can't wait until the new ones come out.


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Gipson I love SEP, Rachel Gibson and Kristan Higgins.


message 14: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Erb I hate this website!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so terrible!!!


message 15: by Booklovinglady (last edited Mar 30, 2013 06:39AM) (new)

Booklovinglady @Suzanne & willaful

I fully agree that Jane Austen's books can often make you grin, chuckle, smile or even laugh (although I have my doubts about 'laughing out loud' for her books). But I 'qualified' them as 'serious' books because my idea of 'romance books', it seems, is different from that of some other members. And maybe it's my idea of 'laughing out loud' that's different :-)
When someone mentions 'romance books' to me, I think of Daphne du Maurier, Georgette Heyer (love both authors), Sara Seale, and so on, but not of the more 'classic' works by authors like Jane Austen, Henry Fielding, William Thackeray, etc. Personally I tend to separate these 'classics' from 'romance books' (and I like both genres), which is probably where the mistunderstanding comes from :-)


message 16: by Roberta (new)

Roberta Holt-kipper I vote for Breathing Room. Love this book and have reread numerous times.

Sunshine Ardie wrote: "Nisha wrote: "I personally love SEP's Natural Born Charmer the best and I literally laughed out loud during class, so it wind in my book. SEP is my favorite contemp writer. You can't really do bett..."

i love SEP's book, and i haven't heard about a new book coming out, do you know something about it?


message 19: by Kym (new)

Kym Collar A lot of these books made me laugh out loud, and many of those are on my read-over-and-over list. But Romeo and Juliet? Really? And many of the books on this list might have provided a chuckle or two, but weren't written to be humorous. There was at least one that I saw with no romance what so ever.

Anyone can add books to this list.
