Me Talk Pretty One Day – David Sedaris (2000)
American bestselling author David Sedaris is a humorist who has written many essays over his career. This particular read consists of two parts — one being a collection of essays written by Sedaris about his life and experiences before moving to Normandy, and the other part about his life and experiences after moving to Normandy. His life before Normandy tells of his upbringing, his odd-ball jobs, and everything in between. The second part is about the challenges he faced after relocating to France, in light of him not speaking the language and his frustrations accompanied by that. The manner in which David manages to tell his stories to the reader is both funny and relatable. His life story is a light read yet it will leave you drifting off into thoughts of your own long after you’ve set the book aside.
Skinny Dip – Carl Hiaasen (2004)
This interesting read revolves around the story of a woman whose husband plotted to murder her, and she takes revenge on him. The title is a play on the fact that throughout the book, there happens to be several instances of awkward, embarrassing situations. It was during their second wedding anniversary when her husband inexplicably intoxicates her and throws her overboard a Carnival-themed cruise. She is hell-bent on her revenge and intends to build on her husband’s paranoia. Carl is a favorite author of many readers, and this book has been well received by readers, even earning high ratings.
Hyperbole and a Half – Allie Brosh (2009)
This is a book that has drawn laughter form the most laughless of readers – those who seldom so much as lift the corners of their mouths when reading a book! Most readers agree on the fact that this is one of the funniest books they have ever read, so if you’re looking to tickle your funny bone, then this is the perfect page-turner to sit down with! The book is witty and offers a twisted sense of humor that is still very relatable. Sometimes, it can be a little sad, but it is sincere. The author goes out of her way to be honest with the reader and opens up about the lousiest of feelings and thoughts that flow through her mind. The bonus – many hilarious drawings are bound to make you roll with laughter!
The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl – Issa Rae (2015)
This is a memoir of Issa Rae’s, a collection of essays put together to share with readers her life in an unabashedly weird world. The book was received with mixed reviews, but one thing that is for sure is that whichever readers could relate to Issa Rae certainly found the book immensely enjoyable! If you don’t consider yourself awkward, then it is unlikely you will enjoy her memoir as much, judging by the experiences of other readers. However, she is a brilliant writer, and you could easily read through her blogs to get an idea about whether her type of humor will relate to you before you go out and start reading this book. It will likely be worth the read either way, though! Issa has a way of projecting her personality through her book that makes for a pleasurable read!
Made For Love –Alissa Nutting (2017)
Many readers were looking forward to reading this book before its publication, and it sure delivered upon its release! This is a book better suited for a younger audience, and in the same breath, there is a little to cater to every audience. The cast of characters have interesting personalities, and the book has been described as a delightful read. It is based on a fictional story about Haxel, a woman who recently split from her abusive husband and moved in with her father and an adult doll. Hazel’s life is frustrating and strained, but there is much to laugh about, what with her new world opening her eyes to a variety of oddballs that her previously sheltered married life had kept her from experiencing!
