Ever read a book that felt like it was speaking directly to your soul? That’s how I felt when I read Year of Yes!
To be honest, I live under a rock with pop culture, ESPECIALLY with television. I had no idea who Shonda Rhimes was when I picked this up, I only read it because I saw an Instagram post of what books to read for Black History month based off your enneagram number – so I guess, in Shonda’s words, I SAID YES and picked this one up (on audio) on a whim. And I LOVED IT.
Shonda is nothing short of brilliant and I think everyone who wants a good laugh, a good story, and something uplifting should absolutely read this book. Shonda is inspiring, hilarious, and wise. Her year of saying yes to everything taught me so much and also felt like a hug in a book.
In general, I don’t give star ratings to memoirs anymore, because I don’t think it’s fair to rate a persons life journey. But just know that this is one of the best memoirs I have read.
