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
We’re being honest here, right? After all, that was the premise of the book. To be clear, I’m not in the target demographic for this title. (I’m over 40! Oh, the horror!) This was just another self-help book written by a self-proclaimed celebrity (ish) who wants to be recognized for changing all our lives. We should admit we’re imperfect, confess to wearing Spanx and give in to the demands of life and just show up at our kid’s school in (gasp!) our work clothes! The last third of the book she sp ...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
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
Girl, stop preaching at me
I love reading anything that will help me with my personal development. I'm a big believer in doing all I can to grow as a person and learn more about myself each and every day.
I have been following Rachel Hollis for over a year now and can I just say, she is my idol!!! She is just a hard-working business owner, mama, and best self advocate I can't get enough of her insta feed! When she announced that she was writing a book - a bare your soul, tell all kind of book - I pre-ordered it instantly. ...more
Every year, in early December, I share a post with the best books I've read that year. I always think, "I'm so picky about what I consider a 'best book' so there's no way anything I read in the final three weeks of the year will be better than these." I have a post for fiction and a post for non-fiction. This year, my non-fiction list was small... just two books (Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life by Jen Hatmaker and Church of the Small Things: The Million Li ...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
