🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Hilariously Funny Stars
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 the #1 New York Times bestseller, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers 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 Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.” Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.
So as you may or may not know i have a huge allergy to anything Non Fiction related, i mean i know it’s real life, and it’s very interesting, but my mind just goes NOPE and i can’t concentrate on them.
This one was a HUGE exception, i pretty much laughed from the first sentence onwards throughout the whole book.
Narrated by the author Jenny Lawson, she takes us through her hilarious life stories.
Who is Jenny Lawson and why is she making a book you ask?? Yep i did too.
Jenny Lawson is a blogger, she writes The Bloggess and it is utterly brilliant, i am a new follower of her blog, Twitter, Facebook, i mean I’m practically stalking the poor woman now!
The reason being, she is like my spirit animal, i am a little bit in love with her (in a non stalker/serial killer way) I mean, I don’t want to use her skin as a table lamp or anything, but I would love to meet her as she just sounds amazing!
Her family background is just too fabulous to describe, but things like her taxidermist father waking her and her sister up in the middle of the night to show her a ‘Magic Squirrel’ (read dead and hand stuffed up his ass) is one of the highlights.
You dont often meet people that say ‘I had a pet Raccoon in my bathtub’ very often, if at all, and even if they do, they certainly wouldn’t dress them in little shorts!
Not every page is full of laughs, there are a few times that my heart hurt for her, especially when she spoke about trying to conceive, but most of it is done with a chipper side of laughs.
Not many people can sing at the top of their lungs “I GOT MY HAND STUCK IN A COWS VAGINA” and get away with it, but she does, and she does it brilliantly.
If possible listen to the audio, you wont regret it.
📣Jenny, i doubt that you will, but if you ever read this then know i am TOTALLY up for us being BFF’s, i dont even need to move into your basement or anything, i can just turn up unannounced, as long as i don’t get attacked by any Turkey/Quail guard dogs 😂
🎧🎧Narration for the book is done by Jenny herself, and it was AMAZING, she is hilariously funny, and although some of the subjects are heartwrenching she still delivers a stellar performance.
