How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly BourneMy god, this was difficult to read and get through.
This book is about Tori, an author who from the outside is someone that seems to have everything life has to offer. A great career, a great guy, a bestselling book, great friends, she’s travelling the world and inspiring millions.
Little do people know what really is happening.
I mean, what’s the word that tops honesty and rawness? Reading this book made me feel fuckin uncomfortable. Mainly due to the fact that our main character knows she’s not happy. Not just unhappy, but downright, fuckin miserable. This book is bleak to the core. The characters are unlikable, and following Tori’s inner monologue drove me insane... but it was her reality that she couldn’t face.
I knew this book would’ve been honest like all of Holly Bourne’s book are, but this was almost too honest. Needed and a raw account.
Every thought you might have had about your body, relationships and social media was just being aired out in this book and it was making me anxious. Probably because it was a reality check that I wasn’t ready to face but was being forced to confront with.
I don’t know how relatable this would be if you’re not in your mid-to-late twenties, but I really appreciated how Holly Bourne pretty much slammed what society expects of women when they reach a certain age. Can you have it all? Should you have a baby? Why aren’t you married? Can you have a career and be a mother? All that bullocks and our main character was fighting and holding on for dear life, because she was being forced to face that particular reality.
I don’t know if I like or dislike this book. What I do know for now is that I really appreciated the skill Holly Bourne had to convey the emotions we all feel in this book and to write so honestly. That society and their standards and people’s opinions of you can go fuck themselves and your reality is what matters.
Thank you to Hodder and Stoughton for sending me a copy.
What'll You Do About Me
While this is often among the first questions asked at the start of the interview, the goal of the interview is not to become best friends. Their goal is to determine if you are a good fit for their job, so your best strategy is to focus on this employer and your fit for this job. This is an opportunity to market yourself as a qualified candidate -- presenting yourself as the "solution" right candidate to their "problem" a job to fill. I call this question a "spider web" because if you simply tell someone about yourself without planning or context to the target job for which you are there to interview, you could give away all kinds of information that leaves them with the impression that you are:. Sharing details about your personal life is not appropriate or smart. Your goal is to avoid answers that give away personal information about yourself, particularly because some of that information might take you off the top-candidates list.
It's one of the most frequently asked interview questions: "Tell me about yourself.
