Educated -- Reading Journal

Why I chose this book to read

I get an inexplicable feeling about my life recently and books help me a lot in most cases. I browsed the online bookstore on my kindle and chose the one with highest evaluation.

My real feeling about the book

To be honest, it’s not surprise for me. I thought I would suddenly realize something after reading but I didn’t. Closing my eyes, I got the same picture over and over again: the author Tara was shocked by the fact of world and was bullied by her family. It told me almost the whole life that Tara has been going through, but I didn’t get it. I was not moved after all.

I try to connect plots in the book with my real life or experience but I failed. I cannot have a resonance with the author since I never had a family background like her. Maybe I take all granted or maybe I should read again when I go to college, go to work and gain more thoughts about it.


The name of the book is Educated, so let’s talk about its meaning. I believe it’s a suitable name for the book. Tara uses her own experience revealing us the path her grown up under different educations. Education means learning different opinions, views, perspectives of an object or event and have the ability to accept and tolerate it.



It’s my first blog in English.

There are tremendous things to say, but I deem that I don’t have enough time.

Firstly, I made a decision that maybe the first I made by myself. It’s also why I use English. I have transferred to international class. I want to go abroad.

There are many reasons cause this decision. I think the major one is that I went to Seattle, US in winter vacation. I really prefer the atmosphere there and I got a feeling of unrestrained. And now the life here is fantastic. I can talk to foreign teacher freely and meet a group of friendly classmates and teachers.

I live in the dorm. It’s unprecedented for me to sleep on time and get up on time. Every day I feel energetic and optimism.

Just like return to the primary school life. I really enjoy it. Also, it has a lot of challenges. I face to TOEFL test and many other tests.

That’s all.

By the way, I will go to Chicago in April. Hope everything will be OK!
