Badkittyuno’s #CBR5 Review #06: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

I know I’m about the last person in the world to read this book, but in case I’m not–go read it! I almost never buy hardcover books (I’m cheap, plus they don’t fit in my purse), but my sister got a copy for Christmas so I borrowed it. It was a quick read (quicker if I could have stopped reading portions aloud to my husband) and hysterical.
     Let’s Pretend This Never Happened chronicles blogger Jenny Lawson’s upbringing in rural Texas, where her father (barely) supported the family with his in-home taxidermy business, through high school (awkwardness) to her current life with her husband (poor Victor) and daughter on a large piece of land in…rural Texas.
Lawson’s stories are incredibly funny, and I loved her writing style. Some of the chapters are more serious, specifically those dealing with mental illness, but she writes even these with warmth and humor. If you, like me, are too cheap to buy brand-new hardcover books, read the “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel” chapter in a bookstore. Then you will have no choice but to buy it to read the rest.
