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".

This story is truly unique and very engaging, once you start listening its very hard to stop.
I'm a very simple person who love to read or listen to books. My favorite genre is Historical Romance but am willing to spread my wings and fly temporarily over to sample a little young adult adventure or suspense, but I will without fail, return to romance..
Let's pretend this never happened...I laughed so much throughout the entire book. Even had to hold my mouth while in the office a couple of times. The deer suit, oh my, even typing that phrase takes me back into Jenny Lawson's world.
Jenny narrates her own book, too which, I am grateful, because it is her life story. The post it note argument had me in tears of laughter.
Jenny manage to teach you life lessons through laughter. If you need a good laugh and can handle profanity, then you will enjoy this book. Jenny really does curse a ton and she warns you in the beginning of the book..
Overall, it is worth the credit. The only bad part...the book ended
This book had me laughing out loud! I found it so funny that I took it with me and let my clients listen to it while they were working out. Highly recommend, especially if you've ever lived in Texas.
This has to be the funniest book I have ever read! The author/subject of this memoir, in telling her own life history, managed to make me feel both normal and better about my own crazy life, which is by no means an easy task. I highly recommend this book to anyone who could use a good, therapeutic, laugh until you cry or wet your pants story. (A word of warning; do not read this in a public area or risk embarrassing yourself.)
The audio version was the best. The author reads it so naturally and with additional commentary, it's like grabbing a drink with a friend and listening to her latest (possibly exaggerated) hilarious events.
All the events/stories are totally relatable yet the author’s experiences seem to always take it one step further.
“knock knock mother F***er!”
This book was absolutely fabulous; I couldn’t stop listening to it—well, I had to stop at work because I was constantly laughing out loud and making a bit of a scene. It literally made me look forward to my hour long (each way) commutes to and from work each day. After finishing it, I’ve tried to find another book this awesome and so far nothing has even come close.
I loved that the author read the book, it allowed her story to be told in exactly the way she wanted it to be.
The author was totally hilarious!
I haven't listened to any others yet, but I definitely will seek them out now
I laughed out loud multiple times and once laughed so hard that I cried.
Wife, Mother, and daughter to wonderful people. i love books, discussions, and debating. I love to volunteer where ever I can.
I had know idea I could laugh so hard. The beginning of the book is a killer. It tappers off towards the middle and end. Well worth the listen/read. I finished it in three days because I couldn't stop listening.
Yes. It was funny! would NOT however recommend it to my mother or family. a little too raunchy and she says vagina like its water! The beginning had me rolling (and swerving b/c I listen while I drive) but I did find myself drifting in the middle. The memoir story's were a bit too meandering but she picked it up in the end. It was a great book and if I needed a quick laugh I found myself turning it on at random points after I had finished reading,
too many to count! too many funny situations that she recollected and shared so vividly
Laughed out loud ALOT
I would recommend it to someone I think may enjoy this type of humor however most of my friends don't.
Don't remember my reaction
Quirky, Cute, Funny
whatever else she would like to share.
Jenny Lawson opened herself to us and proudly displayed the things that most people will spend a lifetime trying to forget. She embraced her wonky upbringing and her oddities and 'normal' ways wearing them like a badge of honor.
Absolutely, I feel as though she has a lot of great stories to tell.
The way that she tells her personal experiences and journey is something that could not be matched if it were just read.
