Glennon Doyle's Books for Challenging Times

Goodreads asked author Glennon Doyle to share her recommended reading list with us. Doyle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior, an Oprah's Book Club selection, as well as the New York Times bestseller Carry On, Warrior. An activist and speaker, she is also the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has raised over $20 million for women, families, and children in crisis. Her newest book, Untamed, is available now.

From Glennon Doyle: "For me, life itself is a challenging time requiring extra comfort. While many folks seem to find that comfort in other humans, that doesn’t always work for me. I am a deeply sensitive, raging introvert which means that I am wildly in love with humanity, but actual humans are tricky for me.

Thank God, when I was five years old, I discovered books. Books were, and still are, the way I learn about myself and other people without having to deal with...other people.

Here are the books that bring me comfort during challenging times."

Do stop adding your own book in the comment section, as it is not nice (and there are other ways of promoting your own book).
