Girl, Wash Your Face
Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be | Rachel Hollis
With wry wit and hard-earned wisdom, popular online personality and founder of TheChicSite.com founder Rachel Hollis helps readers break free from the lies keeping them from the joy-filled and exuberant life they are meant to have. Founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Chic Media, Rachel Hollis has created an online fan base of hundreds of thousands of fans by sharing tips for living a better life while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own. Now comes her highly anticipated first book featuring her signature combination of honesty, humor, and direct, no-nonsense advice. Each chapter of Girl, Wash Your Face begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward. From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her sons request that she buy a necklace to be like the other moms, Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and to awaken their slumbering goals.

I so struggled with my rating for this book. However, I overall enjoyed it. It was a quick and easy read, and many times I found myself saying “yes! I so needed to hear this”. Other times I found her very cringey and trying too hard to be “liked” and “relatable” to the reader. Whenever she said “tribe” or “I‘m AWFUL at ...” I was thinking ohhh here we go again. But overall she had great things to say and I enjoyed it!

This is so true. I used to have a hard time talking without stuttering or losing my train of my thought. After pushing myself to talk more, I found myself extremely embarrassed about what I've said that day. People constantly corrected me or finished my sentences for me because I just talked too slowly. Regardless, I continued and now, I'm a lot better than I used to be. I'm proud of myself for trying even when I faced failure from time to time.

cherinium When I was in high school I gave up all carbonated beverages, except for the once or twice a year treat of Root Beer. That lasted about 15 years. Then, I took a job working the graveyard shift. I can't stand the taste of coffee, and tea didn't have enough caffeine. I started turning to Mountain Dew to help me through some of the worst nights. That was 10 years ago, and I now drink 2-3 cans a day. 🤦‍♀️ 1mo

I def get why this book was so popular for many and not so popular with others. Overall I enjoyed it. No, alot or the kid stuff didnt resonate with me but there were parts that definitely hit close to home. I'd recommend this for anyone who just wants a quick read but is looking for a little inspiration or motivation

Earlier this year I binge listened to What Should I Read Next, and during one of those episodes Anne talked about #selfhelp books with these podcasters. Fast forward a few months, and I read an article on Bookriot about the tagged book. I found the episode of By the Book when they discussed it, and now I‘m binge listening to another podcast. To bring it full circle, Amanda also mentioned this podcast on the latest Get Booked. #selfimprovementsept

I listened to the Audible version read by the author. At first I enjoyed her reading, but by halfway I was finding her a bit annoying. At times I felt like she was yelling at me. Girl, I'm old enough to be your mother! Which might be the problem here. There were definitely some thought-provoking bits, but I feel that much of her advice did not apply to me.

I don't know what I was expecting going into this book but the first few chapters definitely threw me for a loop. Once I got a feel for her style of writing (felt like inspirational articles I would find on the internet) I had a new appreciation for the book. It was exactly what I needed at this moment in time. Not something I'm going to read religiously but definitely something that I can use to remind me to keep chugging along in life.

Honestly, jumping in to a book about self improvement and basically becoming the best you, I was pretty skeptical. I figured I would be bored or just laugh at the motivational speaker.
I was so wrong. This book was truly inspiring and really made me look deep within myself. I‘m not usually huge on audiobooks but having been so busy and having a one year old as well, audiobooks have become so helpful for getting a good book in.

This was a book club read. Not my favorite. The first two chapters were ok, but that was about it. Halfway through the book the Christian vibe got stronger. It read like a very long blog post, which made sense after learning that‘s the author‘s job. Most of the chapters were like reading the blog before the recipe - get to the punchline. I wanted to give it a so-so because it definitely could have been worse, but it just wasn‘t applicable to me.

thricerenewed I‘m keep thinking more about why I didn‘t like this book. And I‘m disliking it more the longer I‘m away from it. Sure I generally don‘t care for Christian commentary, but hers felt particularly put on. I read books intro to acknowledgements and this is the first book (or one of very few since I can‘t recall others) that had Christian themes and yet God wasn‘t thanked in the acknowledgements. It felt written by a persona and instead of a person. (edited) 5mo

Although Hollis is fun, relatable, and upbeat, I didn‘t find anything in her book I can‘t find from online inspirational posts. And I found it hard to relate to her chapters on children or her reliance on religion. Unfortunately I think Hollis‘ privilege shows in the pages and her stories, and despite her great advice, I think it‘d have more affect when it isn‘t in response to barely peeing your pants in front of your young sons.

4.5/5💚

I bought this book on Tues & finished it Sat. It‘s an easy read with both humor and honest stories of embarrassing & difficult moments in life. This book examines some of the lies women believe and how the author discovered them & got through them. At times some of what she wrote about made me think of #Stoicism & I wondered if maybe she is a congenital #Stoic. I participated enjoyed the honesty & advice in the book.

Nothing earth shattering in the book but it never hurts to get a friendly, upbeat reminder that it‘s ok to take care of yourself and that we‘re all in this together.

Each chapter is labeled with a lie that the author has believed and then the chapter goes on to explain how she moved passed it. While most of the advice and stories in this book have been fairly common sense, I think that it‘s good to be reminded of the small steps that we sometimes forget in the grand scheme of life. This chapter tho, hits home and I think it may be one of my biggest struggles personally.

This book was exactly what I needed. I listened to this book on audible and she was a great narrator. You can definitely tell she is a wonderful public speaker. It‘s a wonderful read if you are young mother, growing a new business, or just need a little motivation in your life. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

⭐️2/5
Not any different than any other self help book. Same messages, same “despite how perfect I look I‘m just like you” rants. One of my dislikes may be due to the differences in who we are as people. She‘s religious and a mother and a small business owner, and I‘m none of those things and I don‘t want to be.

My white privilege shines through sometimes and this book comforted me that raising a new generation will make a difference. While this book dealt with ideas that weren‘t relevant to me (motherhood, certain ideas of religion), it never felt like she was pushing her view. She ties it up with the “Lie : I need a hero”. So many times I rely on others to change my life. The truth is, I can do it myself and need to prioritize that above anything else.
