Happy Thanksgivukkah! Favorite Funny Romances
Every year I do a giveaway each night of Hannukah, but this year is a little different because the first day of Hannukah is actually on Thanksgiving. This won’t happen for another 70,000 years!
This year my celebration is a bit different. I have chosen my top three (in most cases) books in various categories to give away signed paperbacks and/or e-books of. I will also be giving away some Hanukkah Gelt, also known as a $10 Amazon card each night. On Facebook I will have daily flash giveaways for your choice of three books from the category in kindle format.
The best part, though…is you get to vote also! You can choose any of the ones I picked, or enter your own selection. Then I will tally the votes after Hanukkah and tell you the Reader’s Choice.
The first day of Hanukkah we will be talking about FUN! I like angst, I like romance, I like sex. But when they are all tied together with humor, that’s my favorite book in the world. I like a little humor or a lot…I just like books that make me smile.
My first favorite funny book, as most of you can guess, is Tara Sivec’s Chocolate Lovers Series. Laugh out loud funny. Not just a snort here or there, full-on belly laughs. Things happened to my body in reading this series that should happen to no one. Ever. These are not books you want to read in public unless you want to look like a crazy person laughing like a hyena. You also may not want to read it in bed next to a sleeping husband. The bed shaking from laughter may piss him off. Eating or drinking? Nope. Spewing out food and drink is never attractive. God forbid if you’re a mom and haven’t peed in the last 3 minutes…I learned my lesson and bought some Always.
I became so obsessed with the books that I started Wicked Book Weekend to
stalkhang out with Tara. She is seriously as fun in real life as her books are, and I can’t wait until the vibrator races at this year’s Wicked Book Weekend.
My reviews and interviews about this series were so much fun! See some of the links below, click review.
Or you can purchase the whole shebang in one big, gigantic chocolatey volume:
Another favorite funny book(s) is The Redhead Series by Alice Clayton. Filled with great friendships, sexy, hot scenes, swoony romance and lots of “that’s what she said” 12 year old boy humor, it is the perfect series. The first book was basically angst-free, but the second, while still being amazing added some angst to the mix. All I can say is MORE please! (Yay, an arc of the third in the series is on my kindle now!)
“He pushed me back up against the door, slamming me against the doorbell. I heard it ring out.
“Coming!” I heard Holly say as she clicked across the floor to the front door.
“Not quite, but she’s close.” He chuckled, removing his hand and leaving me breathless and rosy cheeked.”
Alice is also the author of Wallbanger, which is now going to be a 5 book series. Wallbanger is a close tie with The Redhead Series for Top Funny Romance book. See my Wallbanger review and the Cocktail Series Order.
Tangled by Emma Chase was so freaking funny! Told Completely from the man’s POV, it had me laughing from the beginning. Drew wasn’t just any man, he was a total man whore. And you know, when a man whore falls hard…they fall really hard. He totally reminded me of Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother, and the book was narrated like that as well. He is actually talking to us as a reader. So much fun!
“Once again, to the ladies out there — here’s a fact for you: Men pretty much have sex on the brain twenty-four-seven. The exact figure is like every 5.2 seconds or some shit like that.
The point is, when you ask, “What do you want for dinner?” we’re thinking about screwing you on the kitchen counter. When you’re telling us about the sappy film you watched with your girlfriends last week, we’re thinking about the porno we saw on cable last night. When you show us the designer shoes you bought on sale, we’re thinking how nice they would look on our shoulders.
I just thought you’d want to know. Don’t shoot the messenger.”
Tangled is currently the only book out so far in the series, but see the Tangled Series Order to pre-order the next two. A short story, Holy Freakin’ Matrimony , releases December 5th.
UPDATE: Just Released: Holy Friggin Matrimony at Amazon
It was so hard to choose only 3 for this post, there are a ton of books from favorite authors that make me laugh.
