Humorous Genre Discussion for July

Humorous Fiction and Non-Fiction all have one thing in common: they're funny. Whether fiction or non-fiction, they are intended to poke fun at a subject or genre, evoke a laughter response in the reader, and may have truths exaggerated for effect. (Romantic comedy does fall under this as well)

Some question to consider answering:

What book did you read? Did you like it? Why or why not?
What made this book so humorous? Did you notice anything unique about the book and/or genre?
What parts were your favorite? Least favorite
Would you recommend the book?

It's been a while since I read it, so I'm going to read "Barking Goats and the Redneck Mafia"

The last one I read was "Unleashed " by Rachel Lacey. It was a romantic comedy, and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it because the characters were relatable and the main character reminded me of my sister. I would recommend it!

Three Men In A Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. I had to learn this book in high school and boy, I ended up loving the book. Yes there are dull parts in the book but overall it's a fun read.

The Importance Of Being Ernest by Wilde, is my favourite when it comes to this genre. Of course it is a drama, but that didn't stop me from laughing. The book is so consistent and words fall short.

I think Three Men In A Boat was way ahead of its time. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read from the standpoint of humor but it also included some of the most beautiful passages I have ever read in literature. (Refer to my post in link below.)

The last few I read were in a collection of short stories. I reviewed those in fact (the link should be with the message, check it out).
What I found was that they were amusing. They didn't make me actually laugh though.
