Truly one of the funniest books I've ever read, Let's Pretend This Never Happened is listed among my all-time favorite reads. I'm not usually a memoir reader--I tend to go for romantic fiction--but I couldn't ignore the amazing reviews this book got. The cover turned me off a bit--took me several times coming across the book before I finally decided to give it a chance and wow, I'm glad I did. Full of humor, drama, unbelievable stories and a cute real-life love story, Jenny Lawson's book was hard to put down. I have never laughed so hard while reading a book--I laughed so hard I cried. I laughed so hard that people kept asking me what was so funny and I'd laugh too hard to explain. I laughed two days later, just THINKING about something I read in this book. And I laughed until my family lost their patience with me (because of the noise I was making) so I had to finish the book when I was sure I was alone. Read this book only if you love irreverent, disrespectful, hilarious women who stretch the truth, swear like sailors, and aren't afraid to share every little detail (way beyond 'too much information') of their roller-coaster life. I LOVED this book. It's a keeper.
