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 charming, quirky, extremely funny, adorable, and unbelievably bizarre yet strangely relatable. I loved the cadence of her voice, the sarcasm in her tone, and her never-ending wit. One day I'd love to just hang out with her in a bar because I would totally be friends with this woman. She's amazing. And so is her book!
Funny stories about growing up odd inTexas. The author has a great writing voice and is a good reader to boot. I find it best to consume short stories and vignette-type pieces in small doses over time and that rule applies here. The only thing I wished she hadn't done was to sing the chapter titles. But other than that, good stuff.
I do not usually laugh out loud when listening to audio books. I ended up snorting with laughter after trying to be quiet while listening to this book. Luckily no one was around to hear me. Such a good listen. Jenny Lawson's interactions with her husband Victor were hilarious. Jenny is very funny and upbeat about even the difficult events in her life. A must read.
I laughed quite a bit through this book. It was well written and well read. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun heartwarming glimpse into one woman's life.
The best move ever was having Jenny Lawson read her own book. It was added so much to the story hearing it with the intentioned witty cadence.
The funniest book I have read in months!
Jenny, because she is the only true character.
All of it. Jenny is rediculously rediculous!
Don't drink anything at all while watching this film. No, really it will come out of your nose!
I laughed out loud SO MANY times!!! It was a great book! I can't imagine having read it instead of hearing her read it! A must listen!!
