Publisher's Summary

Navigating through youth and young adulthood isn't easy, and in Sorry Not Sorry, Naya Rivera shows us that we're not alone in the highs, lows, and in-betweens. Whether it's with love and dating, career and ambition, friends, or gossip, Naya inspires us to follow our own destiny and step over - or plod through - all the crap along the way.

After her rise and fall from childhood stardom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Family Matters, barely eking her way through high school, a brief stint as a Hooters waitress, going through thick and thin with her mom/manager, and resurrecting her acting career as Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya emerged from these experiences with some key life lessons. Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, "There's still a 13-year-old girl inside of me making detailed lists of how I can improve, who's never sure of my own self-worth." Sorry Not Sorry is for that 13-year-old in all of us.

    Story
    "what a waste of a credit"
    What would have made Sorry Not Sorry better?

    A little more humility. She brags so hard that it was painful to listen to, especially during her child-actor years. I was hoping this would be a deeper exploration into her upbringing and that she had somehow overcome HUGE odds and it might make me think that she's more than just a bland actress. Not so much, she's just a normal girl thinking she's really got talent. I wish I hadn't spent a credit on this, or that I'd contributed to her big headed idea that she's somehow still relevant. I'm all for confidence, but there should be more self-awareness.


    What could Naya Rivera have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She made mistakes in her youth. I get it, we all make mistakes. But the way she describes them and the way she overcame them is like she's the first one to ever make them and like she's giving us these amazing revelations/answers. These are the same mistakes that teenagers and young adults have been making for a veryyyy long time. She's not more special for them, just because she was a child actress. She's not even particularly brilliant in her revelations. You managed money poorly. You were broke. You were in debt. With some advice from your parents, you got out of debt. You learned a lesson. Whoop whoop. Many of us have been there too, and you don't see us writing books about it.


    Any additional comments?

    The only redeeming piece of the book was when she was describing her abortion and the difficulty of it. It was the first point in the book where it felt like she was relatable and I really felt like she had been through something tragic.

    What character would you cut from Sorry Not Sorry?

    Naya Rivera


    Any additional comments?

    I love Naya Rivera or should I say her character Santana on Glee however this book made Naya come across as pretentious, self-indulgent, spoiled, racist and over-bearing. The chapters were inconsistent and flip-flopped back and forth throughout her life and career causing most times for it to be confusing where she was going or coming from.

    Although her stories didn't lack interest, it did lack intelligence with all the hashtag, side remarks, cussing, name dropping and cattiness. It's truly not a surprise that she has been remarked in the manner she has in the media, why she is now twice dumped/divorced (from serious relationship stand points) and why she isn't steadily working post Glee.

    The chapter on her race and her views on it was absolutely disgusting to me, as she spoke so much of "white people" being racist with their remarks and jokes, yet consistently made racists comments throughout the entire chapter. I cannot express how absolutely sick to death I am of societies double standards!

    All in all this book was nothing short of HORRIBLE! If I could receive a refund.... I WOULD!!

    "Nice but not one of the best in this genre"

    I'm a Gleek and I usually enjoy celebrities' books, but this one is not my favourite. I was moved by the part where is opened up about her abortion.

    "Overall is good"

    I feel like the editors should have to put on a little more work on repetitions on the book. Like she has told a few sentences more than once, and repeated herself about her relationship with Lea in two different chapters. Technical issues aside, I like it 1) because I do like her work, 2) because I'm not sure when she will do something in TV or film again, 3) is nice to actually understand or know the struggles and overcoming of others as real people, 4) is great to actually have her notions of the story. 5) just say I was upset that Glee ended the way it did. 6) I wish you take this 2 years to be there for your kid and maybe start to write your own fiction. By the NYFA and your time in NYC is seems that you loved so please make something to be called yours. 7) I know Madison is you ultimately BFF m, but besides Kevin and Telly, there still friendship with anyone from glee? 8) this book needs a revision. 2016 may have be great from the start, but it suffer another change from your life. Will you guys separated from good? 9) have you ever try European scene in arts besides Paris with Diana? I think you would enjoy return for your roots, go to Spain, meet Javier Barden or Ricardo Darín and maybe do a movie in Spanish. Met Almodóvar and Penelope Cruz and maybe be the next muse from the director that is perhaps genius or crazy. 10) Josye is cute and charming and is great that you are taking this time to dedicated to something that you want to be! A great mom!
