Let's Pretend This Never Happened
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The #1 New York Times bestselling (mostly true) memoir from the hilarious author of Furiously Happy.
“Gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.
In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

I laughed the entire time.
TheBloggess has always been one of my favorite reads. Her wit, sense of humor and utter lack of common sense combine to be a genuine smile every time I need one the most. I could not put this book down and it had me in stitches the whole time. TheBloggess will give you a new perspective on life and help you understand why normal is simply over rated.
Refreshingly bizarre and wonderful
Jenny Lawson's writing is like a tornado. It sweeps you up into her spiraling mind that has already swept up the most random pieces of flotsam, and somehow drops you on the other side of the book having laughed, cried, and cried laughing. She is equal parts vulgar, vulnerable, insightful, and ultimately relatable, because who hasn't considered the possibility that Jesus is really a zombie or ordered a taxidermied mouse dressed as Hamlet from the Internet at 3 a.m.? (Answer: probably most people, but that's what makes her so incredible.) Her wild stories are accessible and insightful, and I would recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor and a strong stomach.
Definitely worth reading.
