This was definitely a hard one for me. Kinda makes me wonder if I laugh out loud too often and should be embarrassed for getting so into books. But, I decided to go with my gut instinct on this one. As soon as I read the challenge, About A Boy popped into my head.
I read this book last summer while on vacation with my family and got sucked in immediately. Will, the main character, is a sarcastic, spoiled, useless human being and I love him. Nick Hornby does a phenomenal job with Will’s thoughts. They’re so real and horrible in a hysterical way. I knew I was enjoying every page I read, what I didn’t realize was that everyone around me knew that I was enjoying every page I read. About halfway through the book, my mom sat up and goes “Okay, what are you reading? I’ve never heard you laugh like this with a book.” So there you have it. A funny read of a serious story. Highly recommend.
Get ready for “A book that makes you cry” tomorrow.
