I have made no secret of my reading preference. I remember settling down to read a book by an author I’d enjoyed. I realized something was missing, a box of Kleenex. I knew I would be a blubbering mess. That realization brought me up short. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy an emotional read, but this was going to be a gut-wrenching roller coaster ride, and I didn’t want the experience on that day. That was the moment I stopped reading this author.
I like humorous stories.
If given a choice, I’d choose to laugh rather than cry. The ability to laugh, in spite of any trauma life is taking you, through is a gift. I try to include laughter in my stories.
Perhaps it’s an age thing, but I am having a difficult time remembering books that induced chuckles.
Here’s my short list:
Open Season Linda Howard
Natural Born Charmer Susan Elizabeth Phillips
I said it was a short list.
I shared my reading preference with someone and she wants a list of books where I had laugh-out-loud moments. These are the only ones I could come up with. I know I have forgotten some wonderful books. That is why I need your help. Let me know what books I should have included on this list? Is there an author I haven’t read that always engages your funny bone?
