Another Overdue Book Review – Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

“You should just accept who you are, flaws and all, because if you try to be someone you aren’t, then eventually some turkey is going to shit all over your well-crafted facade, so you might as well save yourself the effort and enjoy your zombie books.”

Let’s start with this: Jenny Lawson. Is. Hilarious.

I laughed my butt off when I read this book. The Bloggess is a phenomenal writer. In this book she tells about the insane events she’s experienced and has a good laugh at all of them. From dead pet squirrels and accidental cow insemination to the not-so serial killer outside of her bathroom door, Lawson takes the reader on many adventures in order to learn one simple lesson: bad memories aren’t really that bad, they make us who we are in the end.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this book, either. Jenny Lawson is an awesome story-teller, making you laugh your beautiful little bum off at every page turn (awkward wording intentional). She truly is awesome. And pretty hilarious. And full of painful yet amusing experiences. I wish I had known about this book way long ago, because I absolutely love it. 

Throughout the novel, there are many times you’ll ask, “What the heck is wrong with her?!?!” and that’s the beauty of it, ladies and gentlemen. She truly knows how to make fun out of bad experiences.

Overall, this book really deserves five stars. It’s light-hearted, insightful, and absolutely hysterical. The stories she tells are mixed in with the small tragedies that she’s experienced, making it an all-out amazing read. If you’re looking for a book that is fun-to-read and hilarious, you should pick this one. *whisper* It’s awesome.

My rating: Five Freaking Beautiful Stars. Jenny Lawson, you deserve it.
