Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

“It‘s astonishing that I used to believe all this without the slightest suspicion. The whole world was wrong; only Dad was right.” (pg. 248) - this truly resonates with me. Once upon a time, my dad‘s declarations of “Use your head! Don‘t trust them. Trust ME” brook no opposition. Now, they have little power over me. I have stopped accepting his perceptions as my immediate truths #educated #tarawestover #knowledgeandgrowth #choosingformyself

“The most powerful determinant of who you are is inside you,” he said. “Professor Steinberg says this is Pygmalion. Think of the story, Tara.” He paused, his eyes fierce, his voice piercing. “She was just a cockney in a nice dress. Until she believed in herself. Then it didn‘t matter what dress she wore.” (Pg 242) #educated #tarawestover #believinginyourself

If you read one book this year, make this it! While this one tugged at my emotions, it wasn‘t the usual sadness that many books take from me but anger. I am so glad #tarawestover got out and made a better life for herself. Her writing is exquisite, her details are raw and captivating. Book 10 of 2019

An honestly breathtaking novel that shows the complexity of humans and their many layers. It is not an insult to Mormonism or any other religion, it is simply about Tara's experience and the results of just accepting 1 view as an absolute truth. Powerful, exquisitely written, inspirational and truly gut wrenching at times. Even Chloe, our furry fam member, wants to read it ;) #educated #tarawestover #60in12challenge #reviewswithmypup

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

This was a great read to start the New Year. Educated is an interesting book, and well-written too. It‘s fantastic to read about her journey from being barely able to read to earn her PHD at Cambridge. I‘ve read from others that it may be frustrating, but I found it all believable and emotional. I salute her bravery.
@Jee_HookedOnBookz #newyearwhodis #january #educated #tarawestover

Jee_HookedOnBookz Yayyyy!! So glad you loved the book! I admire her bravery and strength too! And the love she has for her family...❤️❤️ 11mo
thewallflower0707 @Jee_HookedOnBookz tbh from an outsider perspective, it‘s difficult to understand the family perspective. It‘s a totally different world, and I don‘t understand their beliefs at all. I‘m glad she and her two siblings found a different way. 11mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @thewallflower0707 totally understand where you're coming from. It's a good thing she and her siblings manage to find their own, more promising paths. 11mo

Unabridged is so thrilled to announce our November book club pick, Tara Westover's Educated. This fascinating memoir tells Westover's story of her coming of age in a family whose suspicion of the government, the healthcare system, and public education leads them to go completely off the grid. We know that we will have a lot to discuss!
