    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.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "LOVED IT!!!"

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

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to a friend and already have had 2 friends download it to listen to. By nature I'm a reader not a listener but I knew I'd be going on a couple of long driving trips so I wanted to try it. I checked the reviews and found that most people said that having Jenny read her own story was so much better than reading it in print. They were SOOOOO right!!!! There were times I had to pull over the car b/c I was laughing too hard to pay attention to the road but it was so worth it. I've also found that it's just as good listening a second time! That's my kind of book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think one of my favorite characters would have to be Jenny's father! He's just so funny in the things he does. A close second would be Jenny's husband Victor. But Jenny above all else was just IT!


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

    I had never even heard of Jenny Lawson prior to seeing someone on Facebook share her blog one day and thank god they did......I've been laughing ever since!


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

    You're never going to believe what happened to me today.....


    Any additional comments?

    Please Jenny write more!!! I can't wait to hear more. I'm now following your blog and loving it every day!!! Wish I had more time to read through all the older ones!

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    I would


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were too many to name one favorite

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Where does A Discovery of Witches rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Diana, she is just so strong willed yet vulnerable at the same time!


    What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is one of the BEST narrators I have ever heard. The quick switching back & forth of her voices and accents was amazing to me! I am so glad that I listened to this book versus reading it (which is saying a lot since I LOVE to read!!)
