Untamed was the first book I read (I ended up listening to it on Audible) by author Glennon Doyle. It’s a Reese’s Book Club selection, which has yet to disappoint me. Just like me, you might’ve seen the many reviews and high praises for this book.

Book Review: Untamed by Glennon Doyle
I had no idea what it was about when I picked it up. I don’t usually buy books without knowing what the book is about, but after seeing many high praises for this book, I just added it to the cart one day when I was ordering other books.
With this book, Glennon touches on many important social topics. Her ability to give her thoughts and articulate and contextualize different social issues is very relatable and inspiring.
There are so many ‘Hell yes’, ‘Oh, this is good’, ‘Well said’ and ‘I can totally relate to this’ moments in this book.
Chapter called Racists
There’s a chapter in the book called Racists. At the time of ‘reading’ (listening) this chapter, we are in the middle of a significant ‘awakening’ on race issues. Listening to this chapter was so timely. She manages to find a way to properly articulate the awkwardness as white people for those of us who have always considered ourselves anti-racists and how we need to do a better job in actually being anti-racists.
It’s very inspiring to see how Glennon has handled and managed everything she has gone through in her life. She lives her life unapologetically, which is very admiring and how we should all live our lives.
Glennon does an excellent job of challenging how we, as women, try to do everything to be perfect in every aspect of our lives. She challenges us not to seek to fit perfectly in all the boxes and to do things because they make us happy. Not because everyone else thinks we should do them a certain way.
