Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, by Jenny Lawson

Category: Recently published

Story: For years Jenny Lawson has blogged about her life as The Bloggess, but she ‘saved’ the ‘best’ stories of her life to be published in this book, which is basically a collection of stories.

Opinion: I’d never read anything from The Bloggess, but I probably should have before I read two thirds of this book. I figured I’d like it, since I usually love funny non-fiction stories (think David Sedaris). Oh, how wrong I was. 90% of the stories and conversations in this book are about how ‘quirky’ Jenny Lawson thinks she is (because she suffers from depression and anxiety issues), and about how she can’t stop having inappropriate conversations with people about vaginas and dildos when she gets nervous. THAT’S IT.

Also her husband sounds like a complete asshole who hates her as much as I do.
