Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Make Me Smile

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. For more info please check out Jana’s blog.

Hello everyone!

I hope this blog post finds everyone well. This weeks post is about books that make you smile and I will be honest I have a lot of books that make me smile but I promise I will try to keep it to just ten choices.

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I simply love this book and each time I read it I discover something new to smile about. I love Mrs Bennet’s random outburst, Mr Bennet’s comments about his wife, and of course the ridiculous Lydia and Kitty.

VfUTUSrxTbKvHzvh6%0GuA

2. Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

I will be honest I could list all the Discworld novels as books that make me smile but I have chosen this one because I simply love it.

A909FA13-438F-478C-ABC2-9557DC64AB04_4_5005_c

3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling

This is my favourite Harry Potter book and it is because we meet Bill and Charlie Weasley and get to experience a bit more of the life of the Weasley family. It just makes me smile to read about such a wonderful family.

4. Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot

This little book is a little book of magic for me, I absolutely love the poems and just smile from ear to ear when I read it.

9780571321261

5. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Another book I have read over and over again over the years and can never get enough of. I just adore the love and friendships between the four sisters and seeing how they grow up and Jo March was always my favourite.

6. Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

Ok, I did say only one discworld novel but I couldn’t help myself. This is the first book with Moist Van Lipwig and it contains Golems who are just brilliant. This is a definite laugh out loud book.

CB2BFA6B-9823-4F6A-B73B-250DCAE19932_4_5005_c

7. Matilda by Roald Dahl

My favourite Roald Dahl book of all time. I love the story of Matilda, a young girl completely different from her family defying all the odds.

322343

8. The Martian by Andy Weir

I read this book after I had seen the film and I must admit I much prefer the book even though I love the film. There are such amazing lines in this book that you can’t help but laugh at.

 18007564

9. Cat Out Of Hell by Lynne Truss

I bought this book because it intrigued me and I must admit I loved reading it even if it was completely different to what I was expecting.

 51ft6C5Ws+L

10. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

As you can see by the tatty cover this book has been read loads of times. It is my comfort blanket that I read often and it always makes me smile.
