First Books of the Year: 2020

Fuck No by Sarah Knight

Surprisingly, this one didn’t resonate with me as much as I thought it would, and yet, kinda did?

Perhaps my biggest problem connecting with the book was that I have found I don’t have too much trouble saying no to things I don’t want to do. On the other hand, I do have a lot of trouble saying no to things I want to do, but don’t have time for. That’s where my learning process is at.

Overall, I still super recommend this book to anyone who’s an overachiever or people-pleaser, because you’ll get a lot out of it.

Notre-Dame by Ken Follett

This is a very brief essay about the major history of the cathedral Notre-Dame, written after the fire that nearly destroyed it. It’s very moving and surprisingly informative for being so short. All the proceeds go to a charity trying to rebuild Notre-Dame, so I recommend buying it if it interests you. I really enjoyed it.
