Description

Number one New York Times Best Seller

Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: That’s a lie.

As the founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life. Now, in this challenging and inspiring new book, Rachel exposes the 20 lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often we don’t even hear them anymore.

With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.

With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle - and how to give yourself grace without giving up.

Too much religious reference

I liked the candour, couldn't stand the scripture. There were far too many religious references for this atheist.

Mum wash your face

There are too many different problems that are listed that one person cannot possibly relate to! Eating disorder, alcoholism, body image, childhood trauma of loosing someone, having children, adoption... too many things in one book. Would have been better to diversify and make at least 2 out of one. It’s not very relatable. I did not enjoy listening to it very much. The authors performance gets better towards the end of the book. To conclude, I would not recommend buying this book for self help. There are so many other that are better written.

More for women who are mothers

I did enjoy this book. much of the content spoke to me, woke me up, encouraged me to take control of my life and take action on my goals and dreams. My only real criticism is that there were a lot of times that I felt like I just couldn't relate, at all, or really follow along because it was so focused on being a good mother. I am not a mother and have chosen not to be one. More power to those that do! I salute you!!! If you're a mama and need some guidance and encouragement... this book is bomb!!! But for me, I got bored with the stories. Call me a terrible person... her testimony of her experiences were gripping but they didn't resonate with me... so I lost interest for a great deal of the book. However, overall I enjoyed it and will likely listen to it again, I'll just skip through the parts that don't speak to me. I loved the author's voice both physically as she read and in her story to call to action you living in your truth and speaking it too.

Not what I was expecting, and not in a good way.

I wanted to like this book. I loved at the beginning when I heard her encouraging women to understand that they have the power to change their life if they are unhappy.

Yet once we got into chapter two...it all went downhill, MAJORLY. At one point she was saying she couldn’t “trust or rely” on her friend who didn’t stick to her “whole 30 diet” The author basically said “How can I trust her to keep a promise if she can’t keep a promise to herself?” Ummm it’s a DIET Rachel, not a moral test, OHHHHHKAY!?? Then it made me think...then if we can’t trust a woman that has “failed a diet” because she didn’t “keep her promise” at some point in her life, then none of us would have female friends. Zero.

She chose a HORRIBLE example, staying on a diet does not indicate a women’s values. Or her ability to keep a promise. It’s so closed minded, I can’t handle it. She goes on to talk about diets and weight loss and if you can just “make *it* (weightloss) a priority and keep your promises to yourself (aka stick to your diet and exercise routine) then you too can lose weight and magically your life will be significantly better. Um, I just can’t even people.

This is the very SAME message the media feeds women “get your life together and stick to the diet for once!!” and I refuse to read books that support that BS. Yet the author preaches the same lies, that if we could only have will-power enough to keep our promise and stick to a diet and become thinner and more physically appealing then we would conquer our issues. No thanks. It’s 2018 and a book meant to “encourage women” should have nothing to do with trying to help them “find their ability to keep their promise and stick to a diet”

To all women out there, Please know, you are loved, worthy and capable of so much more than just sticking to a diet and changing your life/body to fit societies standards. You are so much more than a just a body.

This book gave me the "brain pain"

If you like wall decals that say "live love laugh", this book might be for you.

Exhaustingly Self-Serving

Ugh. I REALLY wanted to be into this book...but dang, it’s exhausting to listen someone make a case over and over for how great and successful they are...all while trying to drop a few life-advice nuggets for the reader (all of which you could get from a 20 min scan of “motivational quotes” on Pinterest). Rachel REALLY wants you to know how fantastic and accomplished she is....wait, did you actually grasp how much she has achieved? Don’t worry...she’ll tell you a hundred different ways in this book. Plus, there is SO much God/Faith/“I’m a good Christian” mumbo jumbo that it just comes off dis-genuine, preachy and un-relatable. This former preacher’s daughter really wants to sell you herself...and some heavy handed Christian values, y’all!

I can't believe people actually like this book

First off, I didn't really know what I was getting into when I chose this book. It was on the bestsellers and I was in panic mode and needed to make a quick decision.

It's possible that many of my gripes with this book stem from the Author's voice and maybe if I had read an written book my feelings would be different, but probably not.

The author come across as whiny, immature and dim witted. I can't believe that this "self help" book would actually help anyone other than a young naive teenage girl. If you are not a young naive teenage girl, then there are better places to spend your time and money.

The author really loves herself, that is apparent. It is great to love yourself, but why do your readers need to know how much you love yourself? This reads like a list of the author's accomplishments in her 35 years of life experience. Nothing of significance, enlightenment or substance here.

Here, I'll save you some money: Follow your dreams, you can be whatever you want to be in life. You're welcome.

Side note #1: She talks down about people who are overweight as if they are less than. Example: you are ugly and not worthy if you are overweight. I would like to let her know that your weight on a scale has nothing to do with your health. Also, you can be overweight and not over-eat, stress eat or sit around on a couch all day.

Side note #2: I had no idea this was a Christian book. That through me for a loop. So "God has a plan" for your life is also a major theme. Wow, thank's for the insight. ;)

Uninspiring

What exactly are her struggles?? I fail to see what life events she endured with a husband by her side and being blessed with children of her own. This woman has no clue how cruel life can really be. She sounded like a spoiled brat the whole time. Listened to an hours worth and shut it off!!

It was ok.

Interesting stories but nothing new. Your typical Christian girl trying to be hip and relevant. Lots of “sweet friends” and “sisters”. Similar to Emily Ley. Predictable message. Was hoping for a little more practical instructions as to how to become who you’re meant to be.

Girl, Wash Your Hands of This Book!

While this book had a great concept and there were parts I enjoyed, overall, it was simply "Humblebrag, A Memior by Rachel Hollis."

If that's not specific enough for you, allow me to elaborate:

Rachel spins this book as a self help novel, and I guess it is... since she spends the entire time talking about how she helped herself, and then preaching to the listener/reader about how they simply must do the same.


She is frequently borderline condescending in her approach and, when she's not making you feel guilty for disagreeing with her, she is flaunting her own accomplishments, which makes the book mostly unrelatable and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

She rarely gives you any advice on how to accomplish your goals, unless you count telling you to write your goals down, victim-blaming (hey, did you know I was abused because I let him treat me that way?), and telling you to stop making excuses and get off your butt. I don't know about you, but I've been given better and more original advice from a fortune cookie.

To top it all off, I totally missed that this is a Christian memior, so if you're not prepared for someone to discuss their own faith at length, this is not the book for you. It made me borderline uncomfortable at times and I share the same faith.

So, in conclusion, good for Rachel. I'm glad she is successful. But I'm going to have a hard time even looking at her blog after this. What I heard was a totally girl power and inspirational book was just a huge disappointment. If you're looking for something that will actually inspire you, I recommended "The Year of Yes" by Shonda Rhimes, aka the book Rachel plagiarizes several times in this one. Just stick with the original and you'll be better off.

Life changing

I am a 44 year old pastors wife and mom to 4 amazing children and this book has been life changing for me. I had been feeling like I’m too old to have dreams or to do anything new but this book has encouraged me to dream bigger and not limit myself. There are a few books that I listen to on audible and think “well, that was nice” but there are others that I will listen to again AND have to purchase the hard copy to highlight my favorite parts and revisit. This book is one that I have both! Rachel, thank you for being vulnerable and putting these words on pages for us to read! ❤️

Girl, Shut Your Face!

I am a super busy mama and I roll my eyes when I hear a mama say they are reading a great book or just finished a book. I think to myself how in the... do you find time to do that. Then someone said they do it through audible. Thinking to myself I’m not sure if I can even find the time for that. So I jumped on and did a free 30 day trial and bought this book with my credit. Girl I deep cleaned my kitchen and front room for two days while listening to this book and finished it in those two days. I cried when I finished because I couldn’t believe I finished a book in TWO days and everyone survived and I still got things done and homeschooled. And not just any book but a book I SOOOOO desperately needed to hear. I laughed out loud, I cried out loud and I yelled out loud. This book will be a monthly go to for a reminder of who I am and who I can become. I’m so thankful to have found a way to read this book. Super life changing.

Incredible book!! A must read/listen.

I have always been an ambitious person, but sometimes I keep saying: „I‘m too tired today, I‘ll do it tomorrow.“ This book is so well written and inspiring!! As I was listening to this book, I have been taking notes on my goals and what I can do to achieve them. Everything is possible as long as you do something in order to achieve them.

worth it!

I absolutely loved it! It was like hearing my own story, narrated by someone else. I needed a reminder of all the things I believe in and this book came at the right time. Thank you!
