[Book] Note to Self by Connor Franta

by - Friday, April 27, 2018

Coincidentally, I found the book of Note to Self, written by Connor Franta at the Times Bookstores. I thought like I saw this book's photo somewhere; maybe in Instagram. I didn't remember well about that. Then I become curious about this book's story and the cover of this book also make me feel to buy it. I like the cover of this book with light pink. 

Honestly, I didn't know who Connor Franta is until I ask ‘Uncle Google' about him. Connor Franta is a famous YouTuber and Instagram; New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur, and an LGBTQ+ philanthropist. This is Connor's sophomore book following his memoir, A Work In Progress. 

"This is an open dairy. This gives my insides a voice through visuals and poetry; this is me spilled out on paper."

Note To Self is a collection of poems, memories, thoughts, and essays that come from a deep and vulnerable place. Connor Franta allows readers to see the world from his perceptive as he opens up about love, heartbreak, and dealing with mental illness. Note To Self gives us an interior look into Connor's life that cannot be seen online.

Connor Franta wrote this book for himself (hence the title) as a way to reflect on his past few years. Through this self-reflection, Connor has opened a gateway for readers to come in and find their own meanings and to find comfort. It is more than an autobiography. It is more like a glimpse into his head and his heart. It is deeply personal, emotional, and very raw. 

The book is beautiful in more ways than one – Note To Self is honestly the most aesthetically pleasing book I have ever owned. It is hard to peel your eyes away from the subdued yet so vivid images. They are framed perfectly on every page and compliment Conner's words so well. The pictures alone are enough to inspire endless daydreams. 

I like the ways of his writing style in this book even I not really professional to talk about this. Overall, I like this book. I would like to give 4 stars out of 5 stars.
