Let's Pretend This Never Happened
Let's Pretend This Never Happened | Jenny Lawson
From the New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy...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 Lets Pretend This Never Happened, Lawsons long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human momentsthe ones we want to pretend never happenedare 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. Includes a new chapter!Readers Guide InsideFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

I'll admit I spent a little more time horrified v. chortling as compared to when I read her 2nd memoir, but I love the framework: anecdotes moving through stages of author's life, struggles, victories and experience of mental illness. A special place in my heart for GPS/robot chapter. Fellow vegans might want to prep with a more thorough synopsis. 😬 Mentions of ED.

Robotswithpersonality P.S. Already have 3rd memoir out from library, looking forward to completing the set! 5mo

This was funny, but not as funny overall as I had hoped. As my friends informed me, there are many stories that sound like things that would happen to one member of our friend group, and those were the best but that‘s pretty specific 😆 I found her relationship with Victor very uncomfortable at the beginning—I‘m sure it was exaggerated for comic effect, but I didn‘t find it that comical. I liked their relationship more as the book went on, though.

I have finally read all three of Jenny‘s books! I think Broken remains my favorite. It‘s the most vulnerable but it also showcases how Jenny has evolved as a writer. This as her first book feels much less cohesive and focused than her later books. Her relationship with Victor is still my fave.

“When other girls had tea parties on the playground, I brought out my secondhand Ouija board and attempted to raise the dead. While my classmates gave book reports on The Wind In The Willows or Charlotte‘s Web, I did mine on tattered, paperback copies of Stephen King novels that I‘d borrowed from my grandmother. Instead of Sweet Valley High, I read books about zombies and vampires.” #zombie #QuotsyOct21

“I assumed that Daddy had accidentally left a bobcat in the house, fallen asleep, realized his terrible mistake when he woke up and heard Victor‘s voice, and was now surreptitiously sneaking it out the back door so that Victor would never suspect that we were the type of family to keep live bobcats in the house. Unfortunately, that was not my father‘s intent at all...” #sneak #QuotsyOct21

Reading Jenny‘s books in reverse order did me no favors because each newer book was better than the last. However, I still enjoyed her debut. Its more traditional memoir format gave context to the stories from Furiously Happy and Broken, especially those early in her life. The #audiobook bonus track about her working at the sno cone stand was actually a fav! (She‘s one I recommend listening to if you do audio at all!!)

Cinfhen Agreed!! Her books just come to life on audio🙌🏻🎧♥️She‘s awesome 1y

britt_brooke @Cinfhen Usually an hour or so. In the past, he has read/performed excerpts, then just appears to speak randomly. Then he takes audience questions. He‘s very fun in the signing line, taking time to actually have conversations with everyone. It‘s takes forever! He‘s super nice. 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lawson‘s excellent new memoir has me rereading her first two. I cannot stress enough that she must be consumed on audio! Her humor comes across SO much clearer. In these essays, we get a bit of family history, some insight to her eccentricities and numerous health battles. Lawson is a natural storyteller and just so damned funny. Btw, if you have issues with taxidermy, maybe skip this ... 😅 #reread

Cinfhen You‘re REALLY selling her, Britt!! I‘m ready to try all 3 💚 2y
Leftcoastzen I have only listened to Furiously Happy , I agree that audio is the way to go.There is added value to her delivery of her own story.She is amazing. 2y

Headache, fever body aches and pains, severe nausea and pain in my stomach.

12-29-20: My 113th finished book of 2020! This was a re-read for me. I decided to buy both of her books for myself for Christmas this year and re-read them to lift my spirits. This book talks about her upbringing in rural Texas, her marriage, the birth of her daughter and her love of taxidermy to name just a few things. Very funny stories and very honest account of her anxiety. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #letspretendthisneverhappened #jennylawson 📖#️⃣1️⃣1️⃣3️⃣

1. My first time voting was back in 2016 (I voted for Trump and regret it 100%). I do plan on voting this year (And I plan on voting for the Green Party from now on). It's important to me because every vote counts in getting Trump and these career politicians out of office.
2. I'm thankful that we are inching closer to voting Trump out of office.

A hilarious read about family, individuality, and mental illness. It‘s easy to identify with her, even though our experiences are vastly different.

I really, really have tried to like this book, but I am just finding Lawson‘s ramblings too exhausting and pointless. I love humorous memoirs (Sedaris, for example), but this just didn‘t work for me. It was like listening to a little kid making up a story. You‘re trying to follow along, but the child keeps getting distracted and adding to a now endless run-on sentence.

rjsthumbelina That was kind of how I felt about it, too. I would have powered through if I thought she was funny with most of her jokes, but I wasn't vibing with her humor, either. The jokes often came across as too crass to be funny for me. I bailed too 2y

#75 because I could use a good, dark humored, laugh.

Caffeinated_Reader This book was hilarious at first. Everything from her childhood and life at home was just straight up bonkers. Then she grows up to be an adult and it all turns into mental illness. She‘s such a brave soul for putting it all out there and it‘s especially beautiful to know she met a man that could help balance her out, for the most part lol 2y
Caffeinated_Reader her social anxiety was so over the top I could almost feel my own stirring up, so that‘s nice lol all an all it made me laugh and was the dark humor I was craving. A fun read if you enjoy laughing at other people‘s pain and messed up memories, which I guess I do after enjoying this book so there‘s something new I learned. 2y

This book made me laugh out loud several times. Lawson's stories range from hilarious to heartfelt to just plain weird, bit I loved every single one!

She writes about rural West Texas in the same way Sedaris writes about the Carolinas.

I really enjoyed the extra bonus chapter in my book, and it mentioned my favorite author too. 😁

I wanted to add quotes while reading this book of some of the funniest parts, but then I realized I‘d be quoting pretty much the entire book. It‘s funny and relatable, OK maybe not completely relatable… Some of that stuff was way out there. It kept me laughing the whole way through, and I totally recommend it, as long as you‘re over 18 and not offended by the word vagina...Seriously!

Jenny‘s retelling of her life reminds me of a mix between my mother and my older sister. All wrapped in the humor style of a Gilmore Girls episode, I love that show btw. I couldn‘t stop reading this book to get to the next wild/insane/ridiculous thing she did or experienced. I loved that Jenny dove into her mental illness and bravely told her personal struggles without losing the humor and emotion of her life experience.
