    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I have recommended it to ALL my friends. I love that I got to hear the author's voice so I knew exactly the tone she was going for.
    It is HILARIOUS. I've listened to it twice now.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite characters are her father, simply because you cannot make that stuff up.


    Which character – as performed by Jenny Lawson – was your favorite?

    So many... but I loved her reenacting any interaction she had with Victor.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried. But the moments when I did cry, I was quickly able to laugh or at least smile again soon after.


    Any additional comments?

    This is damn funny, Y'all. You will not be sorry if you pick this book up or decide to listen to it. Jenny Lawson is an amazingly honest and funny writer. I wish there was more out there like her.

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    "So THAT'S what happened to Rachel Dratch!"

    What did you love best about Girl Walks into a Bar...?

    I loved how honest this book is and how relatable all her life stories and dating situations are.


    What other book might you compare Girl Walks into a Bar... to and why?

    I guess it comes close to Tina Fey's, Bossy Pants. It speaks a lot of working on SNL and the rise and fall of a comedian, and just how hard it is to make it in show biz.


    Have you listened to any of Rachel Dratch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only ever seen her on SNL, and liked her there.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No clue.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a fun read. She's real and and all her stories are very relatable.

    "You’re not doing it right." Michael Ian Black has been hearing these five words all his life. And now—on the eve of his 40th birthday—he is finally beginning to wonder why. As a husband and father living in the suburbs, Michael asks the questions so many of us ask ourselves at one point or another, including "How did I end up here?" The answers are painstakingly detailed in this, Michael Ian Black’s debut memoir.

    Grant says: "Funny, Heartfelt, and Honest"

    I think the narration by Michael made it more enjoyable for me. I'm not sure if it woulda read the same if I had read it on its' own.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the real talk about couple hood and children.


    What about Michael Ian Black’s performance did you like?

    He's funny. He's sarcastic. What more can I say?


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh very often, and it choked me up, too...


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good read/listen. If you are a big fan of his, you will enjoy it thoroughly.
