Is it actually funny??

Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny  Lawson

Let's Pretend this Never Happened

By: Jenny Lawson

Genre: Adult Humor

Pages: 318

Published: 2012

Read: March

3 out of 5

I read very few humor books; mostly because they are usually it short story form (not my favorite) and there is so many literature books I want to read.  However, being a librarian I do enjoy trying different genres every once in a while and you never know what you might find (biographical graphic novels!) I actually enjoyed the fact that this book was short stories because some chapters I hated and couldn’t wait for them to finish, plus I knew the next chapter would be a different topic. I started thinking of her as the “joke explainer” because she could never tell a story without explaining why it was funny. I felt she was her best audience and needed to make herself sound funnier than she actually was. My favorite chapters were her husband rants, post-it notes chapter, and the HR secrets.
