The cover of this upcoming 2019 release was me 100%. The title, the colors, the max cuteness factor was me and I just had to review it. As soon as I got my approval to read this book of questions I dived immediately in.
Know Yourself: A Book Of Questions is just that. Each page is a different question. Each page is decorated differently with lots of color. Some questions are light hearted and others might make you wince with how deep they are. I thought the best way to review this is to give a sample of some of the questions that spoke to me and share my answers.
Would you rather have a different name?
I’ve always wondered what it would be like to have a different name. Sometimes at work callers get my name wrong, which makes me wonder what my life would be like if my name was different. Some of my personal favorite names are: Sarah, Emily, Brianna and Amanda.
What’s your fave sound?
My favorite sound is the violin.
Do your personality traits match your zodiac sign?
Yes and no. I definitely can be broody, although I don’t like being a leader. And I can’t stand to be the center of attention. I can certainly have intense opinions and be impatient. I have a challenge of being an impulsive shopper. I do like being babied to a degree.
How old do you feel?
I feel like I’m in my twenties.
What do you do when you are nervous?
When I’m nervous I pick hangnails.
What’s the best thing about coming home?
I love being in my own personal space with my best partner and bookcase.
What’s your greatest victory?
Surviving my preemie birth.
Which of your five senses is the strongest?
My sense of smell.
What story has been making the rounds in your family for years?
My miracle birth.
Would you go back to life without the internet?
I think I just might since communication was more intentional and life was less ADD.
Do you ever fantasize about being famous?
Yes, a famous author.
How important are other people’s opinions when you’re deciding on something?
I cave caring more about other’s opinions of a decision I’m making versus having confidence in my own decision I’ve made. It’s one trait I need to curb. Taking in other’s advice isn’t a bad thing, but I need to be secure in my own decisions.
What color would you give your life?
The color I would give my life would be blue. It is one of my favorite colors. To me it represents both calm and moody or emotional, which I have been quite a bit lately. Also, blue represents clear blue skies or stormy clouds which I love.
Do you tend to ask the questions or answer them?
I ask the questions as I like to deflect answering them.
I received my complimentary digital ARC copy of Know Yourself by Irene Smit and Astrid Van Der Hulst through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. If you love this kind of book I highly recommend it. This book would make a great great gift or book club book.
