Book of the Month: Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

I love to judge a book by it's cover and this shit is hilarious. Weird little rodent in a cape. A friend started reading this book and said I need to read it because it reminds her of me. And I think we all love when people are reminded of us.

Oddly enough, it was on my "to read" list already. So I'm pumped to recommend it.

Here's a brief synopsis from Amazon:
When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.

In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

Stop by her blog too; it had me laughing immediately!

Happy reading!
