If you’re anything like me, you enjoy reading books that make you laugh so hard that you melt off the worries of the day. It can be hard to find a book series that isn’t overly serious and has a great flowing plot. 

One such book that you can read on-the-go is Pause by CJ Adler. It is available on Wattpad and on Amazon for twenty-two dollars and six cents. This book will have you laughing your socks off until it’s hard to breathe. Adler’s hilarious characters will have you bursting out into laughter through her creative diction and unique writing style. 

Aqueela is a dreamer and comedian at heart. Her bucket list includes getting arrested; she’s a proud owner of a ribbon hat; she is a self-confessed bubblegum ice cream fanatic. Born with a witty tongue and ridiculous spunk, she always manages to worm her way out of any situation.  

Enter Jay, a guy who is everything Aqueela isn’t. Abandoned twice and lived most of his life from the wrong side of the tracks, Jay’s past does outline a bad picture. He’s self-critical and pessimistic by nature, but contrary to popular belief, he’s never been one to enjoy making people miserable.  

A rebel with a heart, Jay thinks friends are overrated. On the other hand, Aqueela wears her weirdness like a badge of honor.  No matter how much they try, hilarious circumstances —including a brief stint in jail— find a way to pull them into each other’s wonderful world of chaos.  

Needless to say, Aqueela’s charm, unique voice, and droll humor soon find its way into Jay’s heart. He imminently transforms from being the guy who wants nothing to do with her to being the only one who wants to give her what she wants. Even if that doesn’t include him. 

Dive down the rabbit hole and join Aqueela and Jay in this absolute must-read about adventures that are bound to leave you laughing and make you fall in love.
