Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be Reviews
Ughhhh. I wanted to like this!
Things that irked me:
-The painfully tone-deaf, privileged, white, conservative, upper-class worldview (one of her personal “goals” that she uses to structure a chapter is literally buying a $1000 Louis Vuitton purse)
-Frequent mentions of how she’s REALLY good at X/the most organized/the hardest working/the most tenacious/ the biggest nerd you’ve EVER MET (dude, give it a rest)
-Near constant reminders of how fabulously successful she is (although I’d never heard of ...more
There were parts of this book that were motivating but nothing presented was new and it was all stuff we've seen or heard before. I definitely feel like it's marketed and better suited towards the 20 something demographic. Women who are really getting started with life, careers, etc.
I did find the information regarding her personal business interesting. Having been a blogger for awhile and knowing how hard it is to truly find success I was impressed with what Rachel Hollis has accomplished.
**I received an ARC of this book from the publisher; opinions are my own**
"Girl, Wash Your Face," honestly, isn't anything new. All the same, I found that it resonated with me in a way that not many self-help books ever have. Part of it, no doubt, is where I am in my own life. I suspect that had I read it even five years ago, GWYF likely would not have hit me in the same way. A bigger part of it, though, is that Rachel Hollis just seems so damn likeable. I'm not normally the sort to fan-girl ove ...more
I usually don't write long reviews but this book got me really fired up (and not in a good way).
I was intrigued by this book after I saw some chatter about it on a few book club blogs. Now, I think that if I knew more about Rachel Hollis (or had ever heard of her before picking up her book) I would have definitely passed on this volume - I am generally not a fan of "mommy-blogger" or "social media influencer" content. I also had no idea this was a "Christian" book until I got a few chapters in. ...more
Because, if I don't think it's worth five stars, what hope is there??
This is a book all girls need to read. It was so good. I loved Rachel’s honesty throughout it. So much in there to put into practice and learn from. Thank you Rachel for writing it
Ok, maybe I’m the wrong audience for this. Or maybe I shouldn’t have chosen the audiobook narrated by the author. But I just couldn’t finish this
Mostly, I found the author’s supposed revelations to be really obvious and unenlightening. “It’s important to have self-worth by dumping the guy who uses you as a booty call (but oh yeah I ended up marrying the guy).” “Hey girls, we should support each other instead of judging each other.” And on top of all that, her anecdotes were way too long and self ...more
Nope. Belittling people by saying you can pick yourself up by the boot straps and CHOOSE happiness is irresponsible and uneducated. It just isn’t that simple. Her approach to body image and dieting is downright scary. She seems very self centered and looking for her 15 minutes as opposed to ‘helping’ anyone let alone women. Throwing in a scripture here and there does not a Christian based book make. This should not be considered self help. I would not recommend this book to anyone. It’s uncomfor ...more
