Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge.

This book is incredible. I applaud Tara Westover for telling her story in such a raw yet heartfelt way. There were so many jaw dropping moments in this book. It’s hard to believe that there are those who live a life unlike anyone else. I highly recommend this book!

So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand.

It took me a few chapters to really get into this book. I had to listen to the first 3-5 chapters twice as I was unfamiliar with some of the southern phrases. Once I got on track, I could not stop listening to this incredible story. Kya's story was breathtaking and will be hard to forget. I took a gamble on purchasing this book as it was nothing that I heard of before, but I'm so glad I did. The narrator was excellent and delivered the story with great beauty.
If you're thinking about purchasing this book, do it. You won't be disappointed!

Catherine Steadman does a fantastic job of narrating her own book. I always find audio books narrated by the author are so much more intense and enjoyable.
The story was great and I loved the characters. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me engaged in the storyline. I bought this book on a whim and I’m glad I did! I look forward to the authors next book.

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is - a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh. Down to earth and relatable, frank and unapologetic, Amy Schumer is one of us: She relies on her sister for advice, still hangs out with her high school pals, and continues to navigate the ever-changing boundaries in love, work, and life.

I really enjoyed this book. Amy Schumer wrote a book that is funny, deep, sad, and just really real. This book made me laugh out loud so many times but also feel real emotion when Amy described parts of her childhood. I have a new respect for the work female comics have to endure to reach their goals.

The narration was awesome, obviously! I think it always sounds better when the author narrates.
