The Most Hilarious Book I've Ever Read....

In lieu of a Wednesday Obsessions blog I had to share with you one of the most hilarious books I've ever read... I literally couldn't put it down and finished it within a 24 hour period.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened - By Jenny Lawson

First off let me say I can't believe I read something on the NY Times Best Seller list! (without realizing it of course)! It's the little things....

Jenny Lawson, originally from Wall, Texas is full of some of the funniest stories you'll ever hear. She admits herself that she had to call it a mostly true memoir to protect the people within the book. She claims, "the moment you think you've heard the most fucked up crazy stories... Those are the true ones" And it's true!

Her stories range everywhere from childhood in the most rural of rural towns (including a class in high school where she had to inseminate a cow and gets her arm stuck up in there) to stories of childbirth, her obsession with oddball taxidermy and her loving and hopeless husband Victor.

Jenny... A Self-Portrait

She has a sarcastic tone that carries throughout the book and is so refreshing to hear. If you love Jenny McCarthy or Chelsea Handler books, this one's for you!

Jenny was also named one of the Nielson Top 50 Most Powerful Mom Bloggers and Forbes listed her blog as one of their Top 100 Websites for Women.

After finishing the book, the fun and hilarity continues on her blog - - You'll get daily shenanigans that will have you rolling in your office chair.

5 foot metal chicken named Beyonce? Of course!

Do you have a favorite funny book? Have you read Jenny's book or blog?
