Funny Books For Women
5 Funny Books That Women Should Read This Summer
I love reading books that make me laugh out loud, so I've been searching for some good funny books for women which I haven't read yet. So finally having read quite a few since then, here are 5 that I can heartily (and laughingly) recommend for anyone who loves funny novels or funny non-fictions books to spend their time with.
Some books I've read were duds, so I won't even mention them, but others were a hoot to begin with. Some you might have already read, but I truly hope you will find a few good books or series that you can still tackle this summer.
Oh btw, did you know that there are also guys who love reading funny books that usually women enjoy? I've met a few and they are not shy of admitting that they
If you've read recently something else funny, such as these funny punny titled cozy mysteries, that left you giggling all the time, let me know in the Guestbook section at the bottom, I'm always looking for good books to read.
Book #1: Who Peed On My Yoga Mat
Who Peed On My Yoga Mat
by Lela Davidson
Who Peed on my Yoga Mat is the latest book I've read that I can easily consider one of the best funny books for women as of late. When I first picked it up, I was not quite sure what to expect, having never read anything by this author before. Much to my surprise, I started laughing pretty much from the start, and I was still chuckling at the end of the book. It was recommended to me by a friend, and I can not thank her enough for having me introduced to this author.
The book is not a novel, in case that's what you're looking for. It's basically a collection of various essays put together on a common theme: being a mom, raising children and basically living in a complex society as a women. Btw if you don't have kids, you'll enjoy the book anyway, so don't pass it on just because it has a main theme of being a mom.
Something I liked a lot about this book is that while it's extremely funny (it is!), once you read it purely for its laugh out loud moments, you can actually start to enjoy what it has to offer to women: a few life lessons about not taking yourself way too seriously and simply enjoy the moment.
It is truly a book for the modern woman of today who needs to be reminded that she is strong, witty and she can cope with the problems that the day to day living bring her.
I highly recommend this book, and while I admit, I haven't read her first one called Blacklisted from the PTA, it is on my 'to read this summer' list.
The First Book In The Series: Blacklisted from the PTA - by Lela Davidson
This time around I did what I usually don't do: read the books out of order. I've read Who Peed On My Yoga Mat before reading Blacklisted from the PTA.
In fact I have to admit that I haven't read this one yet, but it's already on my 'to read this summer' list of funny books for women. I will update with a review once I'm through with it.
Book #2: Bossypants
by Tina Fey
About Bossypants...well you just have to look at the image to know that it will be a funny book for women to enjoy. This book actually proves that indeed, women can be, and are funny. Again, this is not a fiction novel, it is actually non-fiction, a sort of biography where the author really speaks from her mind directly out of her mouth - in this case pen, but if you are a fiction buff, don't let that stop you from picking up this book as one of your next. You won't be sorry.
It is a laugh out loud book with moments ranging from really funny ones to some that simply make you smile and make you feel good about yourself. The author brings lots of stories about her as a working girl, about her a mom and basically tells us how to be a good boss. And a funny one too.
Btw if you've never heard of Tina Fey, she is not only a writer, but also a comedienne, an actress, and you might have heard of her through her NBC series 'Saturday Night Live". She also played in the comedy series called 30 Rock, oh and you might have seen her impersonating Sarah Palin.
What I'm trying to say is that she has comedy in her bones, and Bossypants clearly shows it. She writes comeny, plays comey, acts comedy and also produces comedy. If you haven't read Bossypants and you want a good book for women that makes you lough, this one should be one of your next reads.
#3: The Stephanie Plum Series
The Stephanie Plum Series
by Janet Evanovich
I love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, I've loved it from the very first book I read many years ago called One for the Money. When I first started the series, it was recommended to me as a funny crime series, and as I love both genres: humorous books and crime novels, I couldn't stay away.
Of course once I got started with the first book, I had to read the rest of the series, which right now is at #19 wit the book Notorious Nineteen.
Each and every book focuses on Stephanie Plum, bounty haunter extraordinaire, silly, with a love for her hamster Rex. She's been recently let go from her job of a lingerie seller at Macy's, and she's in dire need of money, which means getting a job - any job that pays good. So she settles into becoming a bounty haunter at the office of Vinnie, her cousin.
And from here on every single book is about her adventures of a bounty haunter, and her being torn between two males that make her heart go bump pretty much all day long: Joe Morelli, the cop who melts everyone's hearts, including that of Stephanie, and Ranger, her fellow bounty hunter and sometimes teacher.
If you really want a series that leaves you laughing, and has enough books in the series to keep you entertained for quite some time, this is one that is worth picking up. Loughing out loud here is a given.
Start The Stephanie Plum Series With These First Books
If you haven't read the Stephanie Plum books yet, you don't have to buy all of them right away (afterall, they are 19 books in the series so far). How about getting just the first 3 so you have enough to read for the beginning of summer, and make your mind up whether you really want to continue with the series or not.

#4: The Chocolate Lovers Series
The Chocolate Lovers Series
by Tara Sivec
Ok I'm cheating. Again. This is not a book, but a series, albeit with only 2 books so far, starting with Seduction And Snacks. But still...
I had to include it because it's something I've recently discovered and I found it extremely funny. It's really one of the great funny books for women to read during summer, or even cozy up to in winter with a nice blanket while reading.
While Who Peed On My Yoga Mat is technically non-fiction, the Chocolate Lovers series is fiction (in the chick-lit genre), also looking at motherhood and the problems that come with it.
The story is about Claire, a young mother who is trying to make money to raise her rather naughty, but charming toddler named Gavin. She is helping her friend sell (yeah) sex toys, while dreaming of the times when she will be her own boss with her own business that sustains itself.
Since it is a chick-lit romance, it also includes a guy named Carter, who is, in fact, the 'nameless guy' who got Claire pregnant in the first place. I really don't want to give away the plot (which thickens with every page read), but really it's a fun one which leaves you with tears on your face from laughter. Just make sure you don't read it when commuting to work while sitting next to some grumpy people.

- Hearts And Llamas
You can read this short Valentines novella for free directly at the author's site, it's all there online. It's short, funny and in the style of the previous 3 books.
Book #5: Wallbanger
by Alice Clayton
Wallbanger is another relatively new chick-lit book, written by Alice Clayton, better known for her Redhead series. The book is a fun romance really which leaves you laughing out lout more than once. It is also a lightly sexy romance, but that aspect is not that strong (nothing to do with the Fifty Shades of Grey style books if you're worried about that). Granted, the book does evolve around sex, flirtation and romance, but it's all in light fun.
Basically the story is about Caroline, who has a new apartment, two great friends, with a great job as an interior designer, who is looking for the O that she lost it at some point. What's an O? Well, that will be explained in the book. She meets her neighbor, Simon, in quite a heated encounter and they become friends, and eventually something more as well.
The plot actually has not much going for it, but the writing is simply hilarious for the most part. I loved the ongoing banter between characters and the light air of the entire book.
Btw, if you're not sure what a wallbanger is, just look at the book cover and you'll soon know.
More Funny Books For Women
Here Are Some More Humorous Books For Women That I Can Recommend
You might have read some of the books above and you're still looking for something new to read, or you think 5 books are simply not enough. So here are a few more funny books for women that could be your next summer reads. Btw, these 5 actually include more than 5 books, because some (like the Rock Chick series) are the first books of a series, so you'll have plenty of great 'TBR' (to be read) books aligned for you.
Playing For Keeps is the first novel from A Neighbor From Hell chick-lit series. I'ts funny, romantic and a great time spender. I loved it. Currently it includes 3 books, with a 4th one upcoming.
Another one I can recommend is th e Rock Chick series, which includes currently 7 books, with an 8th one to be published this year.
Btw, if you love the Stephanie Plum series, you will really enjoy this one too!
This book is actually a collaboration of 3 authors, who decided to write a funny book. Now the book is weird in the sense that it makes fun for pretty much every book genre that I have read. The story follows Chase (no last name, just Chase), and when you really look at it, it's nothing more than a parody of lots and lots of movies and books. A really silly book (well the title says it all), but you won't regret reading it. And laughing out loud.
Finally, another fun, fun, fun book that I can recommend. It's a hilarious book, a memoir by Jenny Lawson, one that you should not read when you're eating because the danger of chocking on your food is real.
I haven't met so far anyone who hasn't loved this book to bits and hasn't laughed with tears when reading it. It's really that good.
