Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess
Okay, I went from Room, which was totally wonderful but in a serious way, to Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir), which was totally wonderful but in a weird and funny way.
I'm not sure which rock I'd been hiding under, but I had never heard of The Bloggess (aka Jenny Lawson) till my friend Julie (Thanks, Julie!) sent me this book. Evidently Ms. Lawson has been hilariously blogging for quite a few years. She is--to put it succinctly--a hoot.
This book starts strong with tales of her weird and wonderful childhood and gets a tad serious in the middle when she writes about her myriad ailments then ends with a satisfyingly silly take on her book tour.
Have you read this memoir? Will you? Do you read The Bloggess? I think I'll have to start.
