Stories with Wit, Humor, Sarcasm or Clever Folk

Our very own Sonja has been on a search for authors who write stories of wit, humor, sarcasm, clever folk or a mix of them all. It’s been a hard and frustrating process that has lead her all over the place and into trying out stories that she may not have read otherwise. Having a decent idea of what she is looking for, I went on a round of discoveries and have compiled this list of authors. I’m sure I didn’t add everyone who could be on this list.

Keep in min74444_SMJPG_0CE324831N091161Gd, I held Sonja’s current reading mood in mind when I put the authors together. She wants a story that pulls her in, maybe laugh, have a puzzle or intricate characters, perhaps a touch of romance, but most definitely a well drawn character that’s clever or witty. Perhaps they’re as snarky as Sonja! She’s not looking for horribly dark stories, depressing woes or disasters that take place in a world close to our day to day lives. She wants a story she can bite into and chortle out loud because of what’s happening. Hey, I think it’s TOTALLY funny when the bad guy gets his balls kicked. Timing, after all, is everything. 😉

  1. Awesome names! We all know that Ms. Shearin is my hero. Followed very closely by Ms. Briggs. Who doesn’t fit into this category because her story is UF. I still love her. 🙂

    I am trying to get into some of these other authors, but someone keeps cracking the whip about book reviews . . .
