3 Reasons to Read Janet Evanovich Books

25 Jun 2015

When I was a teenager, I remember falling out of my chair, startled, because my aunt Rebecca started howling with laughter (seemingly randomly). She is not a quiet woman. The culprit for her cackle was the latest Janet Evanovich book, packed with screwball antics and offbeat characters.

As one amazon reviewer notes, Janet Evanovich’s books are “ridiculous(ly awesome).” Well put.

Three Reasons You Should Read Janet Evanovich Books


1. Her books are hilarious.

There’s a reason Aunt Rebecca’s laughs were more akin to cackles than chuckles. Janet Evanovich has comedic timing down to an art. Her dialogue is snappy and witty, and the bizarre quotes that come out of her characters’ mouths are, well, quotable. Here are a few of my personal favorites:




2. Her books are liked by virtually everyone.

Janet Evanovich’s books are like that one gal at a party who makes everyone laugh, puts a smile on the face of the most curmudgeonly person, and leaves a lovely impression on everyone in the room. Everyone from my teenage godsister to my dad’s best friend gets a kick out of Janet Evanovich’s books. Picking up a new Evanovich is hardly a risk. You’ll almost certainly like it.

3. You don’t have to say goodbye to her characters.

Most of Janet Evanovich’s books are part of a series. If you start One for the Money or Wicked Business, you don’t have to suffer through a book hangover at the end. Just pick up the next book and dive back into the screwball world of Evanovich.
