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.

Sorry! No.... REALLY! Sorry I wasted my credit!

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!!

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.

Was expecting more

My heart broke for her once in her story but over all.... Meh. She's an actor not a writer. So I'm still a fan of her work as an actor but I feel as though I was listening to someone's middle school autobiography assignment for an English class. Glad she tried!! But it gave me the realization that my life too would not make a great book. Keep acting Naya!!!

Enjoyable, lighthearted, surprisingly refreshing.

As a fan of Glee, I chose this book for obvious reasons. If your looking for a gossipy tell all, this isn’t it. Sure, Naya is refreshing in her candor and doesn’t hold anything back. But, this but is all the more enjoyable because she doesn’t dwell on the fluffy drama of the aforementioned teen soap.
Her strength is in her brutal honesty. She should be proud of her accomplishments, and the woman, her ups, and downs, have allowed her to be.
I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a lighthearted book about trials and success in the entertainment industry. As well as people looking for an aspirational story of one determined young woman’s journey to find her place in the world.
Very good book, and for those of you looking for Glee-Beef, there’s that too in small amounts, but still enough to satiate your appetite.

Monotone voice made me sleepy

I had a hard time with this book. I heard great things about it, but when I was listening to Naya's monotone voice, I kept catching myself falling asleep. I wanted to hear more excitement from her, but instead it felt like someone was forcing her to read aloud. The story is good, not the best, but overall OK. I like her honesty and real feelings behind words and would probably have like it more if I read it instead of hearing it.

Easy listen

What aspect of Naya Rivera’s performance would you have changed?

Not too deep but interesting enough to keep you entertained. Short and a little choppy, not too much time focused on current life and not too deep. More substance needed, an easy light listen.
