Why don’t white people understand that Converse tekkies are not just cool but a political statement to people of colour? Why is it that South Africans of colour don’t really ‘write what we like’? What’s the deal with people pretending to be ‘woke’? Is Islam really as antifeminist as is claimed? What does it feel like to be a brown woman in a white media corporation? And what life lessons can we learn from Bollywood movies? In Sorry, Not Sorry, Haji Mohamed Dawjee explores the often maddening experience of moving through post-apartheid South Africa as a woman of colour. In characteristically candid style, she pulls no punches when examining the social landscape: from arguing why she’d rather deal with an open racist than some liberal white people, to drawing on her own experience to convince readers that joining a cult is never a good idea. In the provocative voice that has made Mohamed Dawjee one of our country’s most talked-about columnists, she offers observations laced with an acerbic wit. Sorry, Not Sorry will make readers laugh, wince, nod, introspect and argue.

Funny and deeply personal, Sorry Not Sorry recounts Glee star Naya Rivera's successes and missteps, urging young women to pursue their dreams and to refuse to let past mistakes define them. 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 early childhood stardom, 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: Sorry: - All those times I scrawled "I HATE MY MOM" in my journal. So many moms and teenage daughters don't get along--we just have to realize it's nothing personal on either side. - At-home highlights and DIY hair extensions. Some things are best left to the experts, and hair dye is one of them. - Falling in love with the idea of a person, instead of the actual person. Not Sorry: - That I don't always get along with everyone. Having people not like you is a risk you have to take to be real, and I'll take that over being fake any day. - Laughing at the gossip instead of getting upset by it. - Getting my financial disasters out of the way early--before I was married or had a family--so that the only credit score that I wrecked was my own. Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, "There's still a thirteen-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 thirteen-year-old in all of us. From the Hardcover edition.

You cannot give meaning to someone elses life by demeaning your own. God said, I Am who I Am (Ex 3:14). So why shouldnt we boldly declare the same? And if were fully transparent, it would sound something like this: Im nobody and Im somebody special. God is a divine craftsman, do you agree? Then why is it so hard to delight in His craftsmanship? (That would be ushumankind!) The Bible consists of many warnings to steer clear of arrogance and high-minded behaviors. After all, pride was the sin that did Satan in. Still, down through the years, well-meaning Christians have applied human logic to these instructions, and as a result, the world sees weakness and is unimpressed with God. Wouldnt it be powerful to see the resources and collective gifts of believers come to full effect against the ills of this world? Just what is keeping us from unleashing that fearfully and wonderfully made person within? Insecurity, jealousy, and self-doubt have zapped the life out of Gods children for too long. Sorry, Not Sorry celebrates the privilegesthe exclusive benefits and favorthat come with belonging to Christ. Its time to begin replacing guilt with grace and Im sorry with Thank you. In fact, the only apology that will be made is to God. Hes the one who lit the light inside of you. Have you hidden that light under a bushel? Repent, break free, and ignite the life you were made for in Christ! You wont be sorry that you did.

‘Absolutely brilliant… I devoured it in a few hours because it was impossible to put down… Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions… Had me laughing all the way through… Perfect.’ Goodreads Reviewer Is this all there is? I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.” Charlotte has always been a good girl. But being good is getting boring… She’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up. Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls… A fabulously feel-good novel that will make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand! If you’re a fan of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Matt Dunn, and love TV shows like Girls, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, you won’t be able to put down this hilarious read. Readers are absolutely loving Sorry Not Sorry: ‘OMG THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ROMANCE BOOKS I’VE EVER READ… I literally laughed out loud because it is just too relatable and too funny… Reminds me of Sophie Kinsella… CANNOT wait to read more books from this author!!’ Bookish Bibliophile, 5 stars ‘I don't know how much my review will do justice to this book with my sleep induced brain, but my excited heart won't allow me to rest until I have posted this.

There is only one thing I can shout at you: READ IT! … An excellent light read that is hard to put down. It cost me a night's sleep, but that was so worth it. Happy reading everyone!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘I am sitting on a bus leaving New York and I couldn’t even wait to get in front of my laptop to write a review... This book was THAT. GOOD… I took this book slowly because it was one of those novels you know you’ll be sorry to see end. Hell, I even slacked on some finals to read instead of working on my dissertation.

I was screaming.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘Fantastic… So good I binge read it overnight… There was no way I was putting this book down once I started… The twists and turns kept me hooked… It had me laughing out loud, cringing and falling in love with the characters… So so good and you really have to one-click it as soon as you can.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars ‘I adored this book… It made me laugh, crave margaritas...

In an epilogue the author suggests ways to prevent such catastrophes from occurring.
