Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be Reviews
I started out listening to this book without any expectations. One of the mommy blogs I follow posted that she had read this book and loved it, so I decided to check it out.
It was painfully hard for me to finish listening to this book, but finishing something gives me a sense of accomplishment, so here I am.
It started out ok. She gives a little pep talk at the beginning and then starts each chapter out with a lie she believed and how she has worked through them. I found most of the lies to be ...more
Girl, shut your face.
This book is a winner in one sense - it takes top marks for the worst book in this genre that I have ever read. This book is epically bad. I understand false five-star reviews, but I chose this book partially because a FB friend of mine heartily urged everyone to read it and partially because I was honestly a bit drunk-browsing on Amazon and I impulsively downloaded it to Kindle.
I knew this book was bad before I got to Chapter 3, but felt compelled to hate-read (thank you, ...more
Some parts of this book spoke deeply to my soul, and others made me want to punch someone in the face. I struggled with every word she said about diet and body image—what was meant to be uplifting and inspiring was preached as scientific fact from someone with no medical/dietetic credentials. She had nothing to back up her claims, but she preached it like doctrine.
I also really really really struggled with the story of how she met her husband. I realize have no business being bothered by it, bu ...more
Multiple people told me to read this book, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I've never heard of Rachel Hollis before or anything about her.
I listened to this on audio, read by the author which was a treat. She goes through some lies that she used to believe about herself in hopes to help other women from falling into the same pitfalls. Most of this is pretty cliched, but sometimes it's a nice reminder to pick yourself up by the bootstraps and work hard for the life you want to live.
To be honest ...more
I was anxious but cautious when starting this book, as I've heard a lot about it. My opinion is probably pretty unpopular, but I could hardly wait to be done with it.
It's pretty misleading to put this book in the "religious/Christian" book genre. Some of the most notable/cringey parts to me were, "I am my own hero. This is all me. Any achievements you've accomplished, those are all you. I wish someone had told me this, but I had to navigate through life and learn it on my own: Only YOU have the ...more
Because, if I don't think it's worth five stars, what hope is there??
1 ⭐ because I could not/did not finish this one.
I went into this book with excitement and an open mind realizing that many parts would not be for me as I am not Christian and therefore not the base that Rachel Hollis is writing for. This book was for a book club I’m part of and was ready for something out of my typical genre.
This book was not for me. The chapter on her experiences with the foster care system felt very self-centered and self-focused rather than an opportunity for a person with p ...more
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
