Book: Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Glennon Doyle’s third book Untamed is nothing like her previous books. This self-help memoir shares Doyle’s experience of coming to terms with her sexuality and being comfortable in her own skin. The novel dives into the experience of feeling as though something was missing in her life. She had released multiple well-known novels, had a picture-perfect family, but still found herself unhappy with the life she lived. Untamed is a raw, unfiltered look into the consequences of giving in to what’s expected of women: getting married, having kids and pursuing a fulfilling yet successful career. Untamed is now available everywhere.
