Shonda Rhimes, the creater of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, and Private Practice, is the most important woman of our generation. Every week she has the power to make us celebrate the Meredith and Derek's post-it note wedding or ugly cry tears of hate at Olivia's fucked up life. She controls the tear ducts of America. My therapist knows more about Shonda Rhimes than about my parents.
Anyway, this goddess among women has decided to write a book, because television wasn't enough for her. The book is called "Year of Yes," and is a non-fiction account of Shonda saying yes to the things that scared her for an entire year. Apparently Shonda is low-key afraid of a lot, which is surprise considering most of the plot lines in Private Practice. During her year of yes she gave the Dartmouth commencement speech and guest starred on The Mindy Project and also killed off Mark Sloan.
Add this book to your list of summer beach reads, but be prepared with a glass of wine (read: a small vineyard).
