Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

Let's Pretend This Never Happened

I have read the Blogess blog for years, finding it very entertaining.  So, when I read that she had released a book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir) I was interested, but afraid that it would be too much of the same. 

Why buy a book when I can read it for free on her blog?

I am so happy though that I went ahead and got the book.  It was just like her blog only more.  Much more.  She goes into deeper detail of her life and her childhood.  Why she is the way she is.  

I had a few highlights, not many, I was too busy enjoying myself. 

"Pretty much everyone hates high school.  It's a measure of your humanity, I suspect.  If you enjoyed high school, you were probably a psychopath or cheerleader.  Or possibly both.  Those things aren't mutually exclusive, you know."

“These were the same classmates who owned yearbooks documenting my mother's decade-long infatuation with handmade prairie dresses and sunbonnets, an obsession that led to my sister and me spending much of the early eighties looking like the lesbian love children of Laura Ingalls and Holly Hobbie."

This sounds funny. I've long thought that psychopath and cheerleader are not mutually exclusive!

OK, I was wondering the same. Why read the book when I read the blog, glad you clarified because I WANT to read the book!

I'd probably buy it just because the cover picture is way too cute.
