    You Do You by Sarah Knight: Non-Self-Help Books that Change Your Life

    I first crossed paths with Sarah Knight when she was still working in New York City as part of the team behind Jessica Knoll’s debut novel Luckiest Girl Alive. Shortly after that, Knight went freelance and since then she has become the author of a series of non-self-help books that have changed my life (for real). Knight’s first book The Life-Changing Magic of Not-Giving a Fuck (2016) is a love letter to selfishness prioritizing your own well-being over social conventions and responsibilities. As a young woman earning responsibilities¬† – some of them willingly, some others not so much, I found the book really helpful and funny. Knight knows her audience…

    Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight

    Last year I read Sarah Knight’s non-fiction debut The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck, and I loved every page of it.

Obviously, Knight’s is a parody of Kondo’s, and obviously I decided to completely forget about tidying up (major loss of time most of the times) and read about that magic of not giving a f*ck, at which someone had already told me I was quite a champion. But, before I continue, because I do give a f*ck about the lovely, amazing people who send me review copies even though I live in Spain, I would like to thank…

    First Look: The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck by Sarah Knight

    First Look posts will be out FRIDAY afternoons. Thank you for reading xx I heard of Sarah Knight’s The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck (A Practical Parody) long before I learned of the original The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and the whole situation seems natural, as I’m not a great fan of tidying up but I learned about the happiness that comes from not giving a f*ck last year. Sabrina Callahan, PR at Little Brown in the USA, sent me the book last week, and I proudly carried this little hardback copy around like it was gold. I was surprised to get a…
