Ten Funny Ladies Who Have Books to Make You Laugh

Posted April 19, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 58 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.This week is books that make you laugh. Well I am one to read lots of books by funny ladies so today I will share my favorite.

Funny Ladies I Have Read


Tina Fey// I remember reading Bossypants during a super boring educational session while I still worked. So hard not to laugh out loud for fear of being caught. Finished it in a day.

Amy Poehler // I was so excited for Amy’s book and it didn’t disappoint I only wish I had listened to it.

Mindy Kaling // I had originally DNFed Mindy’s first book. Then I gave the audio a try. BIG winner there. I also enjoyed the second just not as much.

Chelsea Handler // My Horizontal Life was something of a game changer for me. I hadn’t heard of Chelsea (before all the TV shows) and that title and blurb made me read it. I never laughed so much. I was instantly in love. I have read almost all of her subsequent books and enjoyed them all to some degree.

Jenny Lawson // First, those covers!!! Second, she is so weird and funny and definitely go with the audio on these.

Leah Dunham // Lena is a love her or hate her kind of person. I tend to be on the love side. Her book had lots of funny moments but some seriousย s stuff too. All of it was a bit quirky though.

Jen Lancaster // This is another I had stumbled upon. Bitter is the New Black had me laughing so hard. Bright Lights Big Ass was another winner. The rest were ok but I have had to take a break from her books.

Funnyย Ladiesย I Want To Read


Samantha Bee // Just recently started watching her show and think she is hysterical.

Joan Rivers // She is classic and would love to read one of her books.

Amy Sedaris // I love her and would love to see what she has to offer in book form.


Who are your favorite funny ladies? Any books I should add?

  1. I loved Yes Please! by Amy Poehler. I hadn’t watched any of her shows, but she was definitely on my to-watch list after I listened to the audiobook. Plus, Jenny Lawson’s biographies/audio-books are on my list of books to listen to as well. She just seems hilarious, even though the topics are heavy! I’ll definitely be adding some books from your list to my to-read list!

  2. Well, I haven’t read a single one of these and I actually only know who a few of them are. Oops! I tend to recognize the names but don’t really know who they are or what they are famous for. Usually it’s people from TV that I don’t know (since I don’t watch TV). Like, I’ve hear of Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling… but have no idea what they’re from. Guess I’m missing out. LOL I love how you have so many to choose from! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My daughter knows all these women from tv and online, I guess and she loves Chelsea (she went to a taping of her last season last year) and Mindy, Amy, etc. Unfortunately she doesn’t read for pleasure and I do, so maybe I’ll check out one of these books for a light read. I do enjoy Tina Fey– she’s hysterical in anything she does, even her tv commercials ๐Ÿ™‚ Jenn Lancaster– readers either love her or dislike her style very much; I’m curious why this is so. Joan Rivers– she’s from my era, lol, I grew up seeing her on tv all the time but for some reason she appealed to younger women and my daughter knew her from Fashion Police.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love your take this week featuring the funny ladies! I’ve been meaning to pick up a Mindy Kaling, I’ll be sure to do the audio. I listened to Tina Fey and Amy P’s books, they were great. (BTW, who’s hands do you think those are on Tina’s book cover? Alec Baldwin?)

    For me, Jenny Lawson is the queen of funny. I’ve never laughed so hard as when I read her books and blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I love Jen Lancaster – I need to read more of her books. I also really want to read Mindy Kaling and Jenny Lawson. I’ve read Tina Fey’s book and it was great. Amy Poehler’s was a bit hit or miss for me, but I love her in general. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for your want to read, I’m curious about Amy Sedaris!

  6. I was going to do TTT this week, but I could not think of ten books that I’d read lately that were funny. I think I read too many dark, depressing novels! The ones you list all look really good. I haven’t read any of them — since I definitely need more humor in my reading life, I’m going to throw them on my TBR list. Thanks for the recs!
