Untamed: Stop Pleasing, Start Living
by Glennon Doyle
Untamed is autobiographical in that it is all about the author’s life and her journey over the past few years to get her to where she is now. ‘Untamed’ is the thread which runs through it – and that’s the part I found the most fascinating. It picks apart the idea that as women, the essence of who and what we are in this world, is dictated by those other than ‘us’.
As a woman with a fair amount of bumpy life experience under her belt, I definitely know what it feels like to be ‘tamed’ and I will be taking some of Glennon’s life lessons into my own in future…
Our passion lies with those authors who have something amazing to say; whether it is educational, humorous or just simply talking about experiences that can help you in some way. We won’t just be putting out the same books you’ll see in every bookstore; every book we feature is one that we think will resonate with you and give you some takeaways to apply in your own life. Enjoy!
Welcome to the This Girl Is On Fire Book Club! We are so excited to launch our book club, we have been wanting to do this since we launched TGIOF – now we are ready and we hope you are too.
I‘ve always been a bookworm, and have had my nose buried in books since my first Famous Five and Nancy Drew adventures. Nick is more of an audio book kinda guy, but he still listens to a couple of books a month, usually while driving on his own in the car. Me? I like to hold a book in my hand, fold down pages, and when it’s something non-fiction, scribble notes in the margin. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good made-up story, but with both Nick and myself, our passion for reading/listening comes from authors who have something personal to say; whether it is educational, humorous or just simply talking about experiences that can help you through a certain stage of your life. And that is what this Book Club is about! We won’t just be putting out the same books you’ll see in every bookstore, or bringing you authors you’ll necessarily have heard of, but every book we feature is one that we think will resonate with you and give you some takeaways to apply in your own life.
Why not start your own book club with friends and neighbours and get them involved too? Make it a once a month social thing where you get together and discuss the book as a group, obviously with wine! Not sure how to start one? These book club tips should help.
We really are so excited to bring this to our community and look forward to hearing your thoughts on the books we recommend. Comment below or go to our social channels @OfficialTGIOF and use #TGIOFBookclub
Love Andrea & Nick xx
