Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image

This is a prime struggle that Tara has throughout this book. It is interesting to see how she chooses to grow, abs if she will choose to make herself happy, or to make everyone else happy out of obligation.

My last 5stars book was Educated. I listened an audiobook and was amazing. I can't believe that people live like Tara. 😮

The last 2days I didn't have time for reading. But I'm listening Educated (only 4hours to finish) and really enjoy listening it. It is a great and powerful memoir. Saw so many great posts/reviews on Litsy that I wanted to try it.
Book will be entry for #readingwithmaja #jumpstart2021#fourfours21 and #nonfiction2021
Picture is from my walking.

Wow what a great memoir. Thought provoking, honest, raw, sad, heartwarming and inspiring. This book is soooo many things but boring is definitely not one of them. So glad I finally read it, it had been on my tbr for quite a while and now it will stay in my mind and with me forever. Thanks to netgalley for the ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐#educated #tarawestover #tea_sipping_bookworm #bookstagram #bookqueen #greatreads #litsy

Watching a lecture by Tara Westover after reading her book, Educated for book club last month. Really neat to put a face to the memoir. #educated

This kept my attention the whole time. I saw similarities in the problems the author faced with those of the characters in The Great Alone, which was not intentional when I chose this as my next book.

I wanted to get in on the whole #top6reads deal, but per always, I couldn't narrow down my list, so I'm doing my #top9reads in 2020 so far.

I was excited to discover that Westover learned the word “frivolous” the same way I did. As an educator, I think this book should be opening up discussions about how we teach kids. I‘m not suggesting we do what her parents did, but this woman has a PhD from Cambridge with no formal schooling before age 17. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

GingerAntics No further proof than this story (which is more common than many believe) is needed to prove that all the testing and early academics are ridiculous and useless. If you still can‘t see that after reading this book, either put down the koolaid or get some new campaign donors, and read it again. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 2y
GingerAntics My only real complaint with this book is that when she was talking about her sadistic brother calling her the n-word, she used it probably 20-30 times for no good reason. It seemed to be for shock value. About half way through, I couldn‘t help thinking “we get the point. Stop.” For someone who supposedly knows now why that‘s not an appropriate word for a white person to use, she sure did use it A LOT. 2y
Butterfinger Great review. Seeing that word so many times would bother me too. 2y
GingerAntics @Butterfinger it was an audiobook. It seemed endless. I felt bad for the narrator at that point. 2y
