FanIQ Book of the Month: September 2013
Let's read, people!


FanIQ Book of the Month: September 2013 PhotoLet's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) 
By - Jenny Lawson


When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.

In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

Seriously, just read it.
I was drawn to this book by the forward:

"I want to thank everyone who helped me create this book, except for that guy who yelled at me in Kmart when I was eight becase he thought I was being 'too rowdy.' You're an a**hole, sir." (Except, she didn't censor the word.)

So all three books have the same title and cover art but are about different things?   Oh you sneaky devil you, Jenny Lawson.

Unfortunately I have no time at the moment to read this.  Between my job and this sudden obsession I have with James Patterson novels, my calendar is full.cheeky

What the hell is going on in this poll? I think this is what CTE is like? I should go lay down in a dark room...

If I was allowed to vote, I'd have chosen the 3rd option too.  It's a shame to still be living in these oppressed times right now. WTF did Abe Lincoln and MLK get assassinated for? So, I could NOT vote on this book?! I think not!

Yes, but I like the cut of that mouse's cape on choice #2 so much better.   That's a sign of a really good read, don'cha'no!
