  • I loved Saving CeeCee Honeycut for fiction. I also loved Encyclopedia of an Ordinary life for nonfiction.

  • If you like urban fantasy, The Iron Druid series is my go-to feel better books. Fun story with fleshed out enough characters I still get involved and find it engaging. But it’s otherwise light and fluff.
    It was introduced to me as being about a guy who loves his dog, the earth, and whiskey, and I was sold. The audiobooks are fantastic and I highly recommend going through them that way if you like audiobooks but the books themselves are also great.

    • This does sound good. How many books are there in the series?

    • There are 8, plus a bunch of short stories. Besieged just came out. It’s a collection of short stories, many taking place after book 8. The 9th and final book comes out next year.

  • Ross O’Carroll Kelly series of books are brilliant .really funny. Big sellers here in Ireland

    • Anything really, science fiction to super heroes to anything.

    • okay i really recomended Dark Matter , Hard Boiled Wonderland and the end of the world Haruki Murakami..

    • Perhaps, Douglas Adam’s book, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and the sequel, The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul?

  • Brandon Sanderson’s Steelheart and sequels are really fun. It’s a YA trilogy about a world where people who get superpowers always turn evil. The main character is hilarious. John Scalzi’s Redshirts and Agent to the Stars.

  • My go-to recommendation always is The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig. It’s the first book of a wonderful trilogy, the next of which are Work Song and Sweet Thunder. The Whistling Season is simply delicious.

  • My go to for fantasy “candy” are the Dresden Files books

  • The 100-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared – highly recommend!!!

  • Princess Bride. Loved the movie but the book is better.

    • Agreed, although I think it’s one of those rare cases where they compliment each other very well. I feel like the story as a whole is best represented by experiencing it in both mediums.
      The only other book/movie I feel also accomplished this is Everything Is Illuminated.

    • But Everything Is Illuminated is not for when you want something lighthearted! 😂

  • Whistling Dixie in a Nor’ Easter, Waltzing at the Piggly Wiggly.

  • At Home in Mitford. JanKaron. First book in the series. Enjoyed them!

  • Because of Winn-Dixie. I know it’s supposed to be a kids’ book, but it’s great for all ages, and there is a good movie, too.

    • Well, I LOVE Ellen and I love to laugh. So I really enjoyed it, and reading about her life.

  • James Herriot’s autobiographical veterinary series beginning with “All Creatures Great and Small”. I laugh out loud every time! It’s got some touching parts (there are sick animals in it after all) in it but it’s 90% humorous.

  • Anything by David Sedaris. Theft by Finding is an easy, fun read.
