As I am an avid reader, and love to talk about books, I’ve decided to start a little thread of mini book reviews. You’ll also be able to find them all in the “Books” Page
Educated by Tara Westover
Read: On Kindle (buy here)
Impressions: I really enjoyed this book. I had no idea what to expect when I bought it many months ago, except that it was meant to be fantastic. Tara recounts her childhood in a Mormon survivalist home where conventional medicine, education, and modern life in general, was shunned. In this book we see Tara evolve, become an independent thinker, and go on to achieve amazing academic success through the power of education. Her coming of age story is one I won’t be forgetting any time soon!
Recommend: Definitely! I really think this book opened my eyes to things and made me appreciate things in my own life so much more. It is an astounding tale of re-invention and self discovery.
