Today's question:
What's the funniest YA you've read recently?

Our Answers

Cambria: I don't think I've really read a "funny" YA. Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares isn't intended to be funny, but I think Cas, the main character, is beyond hilarious and witty.

Sara: Swim the Fly by Don Calame. It’s the first book that comes to mind anytime someone wants to read a book that will make them literally laugh out loud. Also, Beauty Queens by Libba Bray had me cracking up at different moments throughout the book, with a much darker sort of humor.

Alexandra: I don't really read comedy (unless it's something witty like a David Sedaris memoir), but there were parts of Paranormalcy that had me laughing pretty hard.

Katy: The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, hands down. I don't read a lot of funny books, but this one had me smiling over and over. Frankie is a fantastically witty narrator!

Jessica: DEVINE INTERVENTION by Martha Brockenbrough. The voice in this one is awesome, and the narrator, Jerome, is absolutely hilarious. He's a pretty fresh take on a YA guy...I haven't really seen anyone like him before, and he made me laugh on pretty much every page. Even the sad ones.

Copil: Toss up between Me, Earl and the Dying Girl and Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator. Both were very funny but I have to give Guy Langman the edge for its inspired use of the kids song Wheels on the Bus and for its final line about cock rings.

Karen: So sad but I haven't read any funny YA lately. I should probably do something to change that. I could use some laughter in my life.

Matt: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie (I know, it's an old book, but I read it about a year ago, and the two funniest books I've read since then aren't published yet).

Alison: I just looked through my good reads list and realized I have not read a whole lot of “funny” books lately (aside from MG). Need to fix that! BUT, I will go with SUMMER AND THE CITY by Candace Bushnell. I can always count on Carrie Bradshaw and friends for a good laugh.

Your turn!
