Booking Through Thursday ~Recent Funny
Today's Booking Through Thursday question is.....what is the funniest book that you have read recently?
That would have to be The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow. It is such a cute story, and parts of it had me laughing out loud. My husband would remark "you are really enjoying that book, aren't you?"
That has been my most recent....although I have to name a couple more which had me giggling; The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far by M.A. Harper which is about the author's mother and her descent into Alzheimer's. Although it is a sad subject, Ms. Harper injected humor into the story which made it an enjoyable read. Another funny read dealing with a sensitive subject is Every Crooked Pot by Renee Rosen. Teenager Nina Goldman has a birthmark that covers almost one side of her face. The only thing that Nina wishes for is to be beautiful and she is convinced that her birthmark is keeping her from having a boyfriend and being popular. Her antics are hilarious and her family is even funnier. The Rosens are a family that you will fall in love with. This is a book you will never forget!
