Book Review: Let's Pretend This Never Happened

Let's Pretend This Never Happened is the hilarious and mostly true memoir from Jenny Lawson - aka, The Bloggess.

If you're not familiar with The Bloggess, it's one of the BEST humour blogs out on the interwebz. Lawson has garnered a huge following of fans because of her illustrative storytelling skills and blatant profanity. She writes like we all think - full of curse words. Ok maybe that's just me. ANYHOW.

Lawson is not afraid to tell it like it is and showcases the humour in all the awkward situations that she ends up in. Like the time she tells a random group of strangers that she was once stabbed in the face by a serial killer (sort of true, but not really).
Her best anecdotes and 'this-can't-be-true' stories have been saved for this book, which has shot to #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Yes, some of it is gross-out funny - her Dad was a taxidermist and exposed her to all sorts of dead animals. Other times it's the exchanges between her and her husband Victor that leave me snickering.
We want to share this book with you! Comment below with your email address and could win your very own copy of Jenny Lawson's book. Contest is open to anyone who is available to come to Toronto to pick up their prize, as we are unable to ship.
