Book Challenge Day 3- A Book That Makes You Laugh Out Loud

Posted on

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.


About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.

  1. Is this the book the movie’s based on?

  2. I love the movie & would now love to read the book! And an author who makes me laugh out loud: John Green. Can’t take his books in public!
