|A Beach on Lake Superior|
Poison is a fun fantasy romp with a dash of romance.
Cat Girl's Day Off combines a bit of sci-fi and mystery and a whole lot of fun.
Her super power is being able to talk to cats and they talk back. What's not to love?
Openly Straight is one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. There were serious moments too that choked me up, but I also had tears of laughter.
The voice of Rafe was so real and hilarious that I just kept smiling.
Libba Bray is the Queen of Humor. Beauty Queens is a work of art.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is another one like Openly Straight that can kind of break your heart, but also make you laugh so hard that you forget that a little.
Eleanor & Park is a very sweet book with a fun sense of humor.
Oh the awkwardness of first love.
My favorite fairy tale has always been Beauty and the Beast. In Beauty, McKinley retells the tale with much humor and of course plenty of romance.
Tiffany Aching is one of my all time favorite characters. She has intelligence and plenty of grit.
The Wee Free Men though - they just crack me up.
I am always happy to find another fantasy book packed with action. Skulduggery Pleasant is fantastically funny even as he faces off against ancient evil.
Stephanie Edgley, his apprentice, is also rather fabulous.

No matter how many times I read the Heir Apparent, the lines crack me up. I don't read a lot of sci-fi, but since the virtual reality game that Giannine is trapped in happens in medieval times, it felt a bit more like fantasy. Giannine is a master of sarcasm and she keeps me smiling the whole way through.
