Audie Award Nominee, Humor, 2013
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 listeners 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.
Chapters include: "Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel", "A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband", "My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking", and "And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane".

Jenny Lawson is downright hilarious.
Sorry Jenny, but I think it's Victor. He reminds me a lot of myself when I'm dealing with my goofy boyfriend. Just having to give that look of "Really?...."
No, she doesn't have any others available on Audible, but I wish she did!!!
I wanted to, but I listen to it at work so only could do 4-5 hours at a time.
I enjoy her wit and humor. Her story of her life is insteresting, fun, and funny. Her openess about her anxiety disorder is sweet and telling. BUT hearing her go on and on in this book and compeletly going off on OCD tangents, while in writing probably comes off as funny, in audio - is maddening. Couldn't finish the book
Jenny Lawson is completely nuts in a totally wonderful and admittedly relatable way. She charms the reader with her own voice - perfect for her zany and rip-roaring narrative. Truly, this book may be better in the audio, as it is a delight to hear her tell her story(ies). And, as she notes, the audio is slightly more expensive than the hard/paperback, so let's give her a boost people. Have a listen. You'll love it.
Jenny Lawson's chipper, cheerful delivery of some of the silliest, saddest, craziest, and sometimes slightly disturbing events you can imagine is refreshing, riveting, and just plain pee-your-pants funny. Brave and loving and quirky - I wish I knew her!
It was the second book I ever listened to on tape and I am hooked!! I wish it was my first since I wasn't a fan of the first. This was so funny it made up for it.
Her candid moments were as if it was a glimpse into a life so funny it has to be true. It makes you want to have a friend like Jenny.
Her quirky tone, it brought a lot to the experience.
Jenny is 'that' friend, the one that makes you question your own views and laugh when you realize shes being real.

Absolutely awesomely funny.
I'm not sure off the top of my head because it's THAT GOOD.
I haven't! I didn't know Jenny Lawson had others and now I shall go buy!
I could relate to her on sooooooo many levels. As a mom, she does an excellent job of telling it like it is. No sugar coating here folks, which is perfect.
LOVED EVERY CHAPTER.
I really liked it. I thought it was funny and touching. And Jenny does a great job reading it.
Definitely TOP 10!
I love this writer's sense of humor. I would frequently laugh out loud at her stories. She was entertaining, witty, and fearless!
Her intonation and emotion about her story is moving. I think you would lose her sincerity if read independently.
This book made me laugh and cry... simultaneously... I'm lucky I didn't leak any fluid with the exception of tears....
I'd never read The Bloggess before, but you don't need any background to find this totally hilarious. She has a very different background than normally heard - from west Texas with a crazy taxidermist father. But she doesn't really have a Texan accent and, as a Texan myself, I can say this is definitely a unique story. Totally hilarious! I found myself LOLing as I walked my dog - I think Jenny would be happy to know that my neighbors now think I'm a little crazy. Also, I'm going to have to start reading her blog.
The author is the best part of this, she is doing stand up comedy while reading her story. I cant stop reading it I have my headphones on right now and I'm not taking them off till I hear the whole thing.
JUST GET IT IF YOU WANT TO FINALLY LISTEN TO A FUNNY BOOK...
