BlogHer Book Club: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are my own.

We all know and love Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, right? Jenny’s book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, came out in paperback this week and while I read it on my Kindle over the holidays I jumped at the chance to re-read and review it because it is PEE YOUR PANTS FUNNY.

I love supporting bloggers when they publish books but am often disappointed to learn that the books they publish are just regurgitations of previously published blog posts. But! That is not the case with Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

This book is hilarious, but also quite touching. As a mother, I got a bit teary-eyed at Jenny’s description of her history of pregnancy loss and the birth of her daughter.

If you’re looking for a funny read, be sure to pick up this fantastic book.

    Whoa. Did you really just get paid to read this awesome book? How can I get on THAT train? I LOVED this book. With a capital L. I read it during my darkest days of the newborn stage and I have to say, it made many a sleepless night much better.

      I definitely need more people to read this book so that I can drop the phrase “HOBOS. ATE. MY DAFFODIL.” into more conversations without sounding completely insane.

      Seriously though, this book was such a great read.
