Janel’s #CBR4 Review 49 Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Jenny Lawson was at the Gaithersburg Book Festival this summer, but I didn’t get to hear her speak. I had seen some Twitter buzz for her book as well so I was curious. Let me state upfront that I had not read her blog The Bloggess at all before reading this memoir.
I was kind blown away by the text being more a string of thoughts somehow linked together. The curse words kinda distracted me by the end of the book. I don’t mind curse words, but the frequency was a little higher in this memoir than my comfort level. I now understand Lawson’s need to include pictures to help prove she wasn’t making up these stories – as they were very random and unbelieveable.
Overall this book was not my cup of tea, but if you are a fan of Lawson’s blog this memoir would be a good read for you.
