Many of us know and are obsessed with the magic of Shondaland and its creator, Shonda Rhimes. Shonda has entertained us, dragged our souls through emotional hell, and engaged us for over 12 years with Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Private Practice, and How to Get Away with Murder. I for one am a huge fan of all of her shows; however, I never knew much about Shonda or how she became so good at developing these creative shows with women at the helm.
When I heard that Shonda was writing a book, I knew I had to have it. I had a gut feeling that it was going to be just as phenomenal as her other masterpieces, and I was correct. Year of YES is exactly that. Shonda tells us about herself in a creative, lesson filled, and motivational 18-month journey. I always try to keep the mentality of trying new things; however, Shonda has inspired me to try even more than I am already willing. Even though, I could not relate to all of her life experiences, the overarching themes and lessons apply to anyone.
If anyone is looking for an amazing book to read this Holiday Season, I definitely recommend Year of YES!
