    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...

    This book is for privileged white women with no real problems but the ones they make up for themselves. I was told this book was ?inspiring?. But let?s be real, it?s easy for a rich lady to tell me (or anyone) that I?m ?in control of my own life?. Any woman with a husband...

    Because, if I don't think it's worth five stars, what hope is there?? ...

    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 cre...

    Girl, stop preaching at me At the end of each chapter, Hollis tells us what worked for her...what helped her master something in her life. Wow. We?re the same age and I certainly feel like a constant work in progress. And she?s this wise, worldly woman who seems to think very high...

    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 opp...

    Girl, just don?t read this book. Bless your tiny little bunny heart if you can make it through this entire book? Like seriously, girl, how many times can you contradict yourself? I had never heard of this women in my life, apparently, according to her, she has is an extreme...

    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...

    5 stars!!! Rachel Hollis's newest book Girl Wash Your Face is just the book I needed to read to start my new year. It's one of those books that made me think about my life, the things I do, and it was a highly entertaining read! A few months ago, one of my facebook friends ...

    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 ...

    (Get ready for some flames, folks.) Are you an upper-class, skinny, Christian, white, mother? Well I've found the self-help book for you!! If you're looking for a light dose of fat shaming (disguised as "the kick in the pants you may need, girl, to take control of your life!! Love ...

    This book isn't written for me, but that's not why I didn't like it. The main reasons: 1. You cannot tell that story about how awful your husband treated you when you first started dating and then, later in the book, continuously mention how you were "best friends from the beginnin...

    There were parts of this book that were highly motivating and not too coddling, which is always appreciated. One thing that was tough was a constant thread of diet culture and weight loss talk throughout the whole book. The chapter about weight itself was...not great. There is a line w...

    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 ...

    Read for book club. Not something I would EVER choose for myself. The fact that people like this, quirky bloggers who are experts in precisely nothing, get to write entire books about how to live is probably the strongest argument I can think of in support of shutting down the internet...

    One of my distant relatives on my mom's side was known in the family for his severe chronic depression. He died about 20 years ago, but the one thing I remember about him was my grandmother's opinion of his life. Whenever it came up in conversation, she would lament, in German: "I don'...

    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 p...

    Could not finish this. Listened to audio book and had to stop halfway through. The author has no concept of her own privilege, and that many women reading this book don't have the same opportunities she has. I found it self-centered. ...

    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 t...

    ?If we can identify the core of our struggles, while simultaneously understanding that we are truly in control of making changes, then we can utterly change our trajectory.? I've laughed, cried and contemplated. There are self-help books, and then there's 'Girl, Wash Your F...

    I need a hero,Actually I don't need a hero ...

    Two reads completed, several passages highlighted, and a whole new perspective on life and the pursuit of happiness. :) Rachel Hollis has given us a new book! It's not fiction, it's not a cookbook, it's Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are so You Can Becom...

    It's hard not to get motivated when you get bit by Rachel Hollis' enthusiasm. She lays it all out there and shares stuff that is deeply personal for her. Her vulnerability allows the reader to tear down their own walls knowing they aren't alone in their journey. Thank you for s...

    This book is truly AMAZING! I mean I loved every minute of it. I have told all my family and friends to read this book and now I am telling you, READ IT you won't regret it! ...

    I didn?t finish the book. I stopped around chapter 12 when I asked myself why I was putting myself through this. I?ll leave it at that. ...

    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 ...

    **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 su...

    This book is for privileged white women with no real problems but the ones they make up for themselves. I was told this book was ?inspiring?. But let?s be real, it?s easy for a rich lady to tell me (or anyone) that I?m ?in control of my own life?. Any woman with a husband...

    This book isn't written for me, but that's not why I didn't like it. The main reasons: 1. You cannot tell that story about how awful your husband treated you when you first started dating and then, later in the book, continuously mention how you were "best friends from the beginnin...

    There were parts of this book that were highly motivating and not too coddling, which is always appreciated. One thing that was tough was a constant thread of diet culture and weight loss talk throughout the whole book. The chapter about weight itself was...not great. There is a line w...

    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 ...

    Read for book club. Not something I would EVER choose for myself. The fact that people like this, quirky bloggers who are experts in precisely nothing, get to write entire books about how to live is probably the strongest argument I can think of in support of shutting down the internet...

    One of my distant relatives on my mom's side was known in the family for his severe chronic depression. He died about 20 years ago, but the one thing I remember about him was my grandmother's opinion of his life. Whenever it came up in conversation, she would lament, in German: "I don'...

    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 p...

    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...

    This book is for privileged white women with no real problems but the ones they make up for themselves. I was told this book was ?inspiring?. But let?s be real, it?s easy for a rich lady to tell me (or anyone) that I?m ?in control of my own life?. Any woman with a husband...

    Girl, stop preaching at me At the end of each chapter, Hollis tells us what worked for her...what helped her master something in her life. Wow. We?re the same age and I certainly feel like a constant work in progress. And she?s this wise, worldly woman who seems to think very high...

    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 t...

    Two reads completed, several passages highlighted, and a whole new perspective on life and the pursuit of happiness. :) Rachel Hollis has given us a new book! It's not fiction, it's not a cookbook, it's Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are so You Can Becom...

    It's hard not to get motivated when you get bit by Rachel Hollis' enthusiasm. She lays it all out there and shares stuff that is deeply personal for her. Her vulnerability allows the reader to tear down their own walls knowing they aren't alone in their journey. Thank you for s...

    This book is truly AMAZING! I mean I loved every minute of it. I have told all my family and friends to read this book and now I am telling you, READ IT you won't regret it! ...

    I didn?t finish the book. I stopped around chapter 12 when I asked myself why I was putting myself through this. I?ll leave it at that. ...

    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 ...

    **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 su...

    I had the pleasure of hearing Rachel Hollis speak at Book Bonanza this past summer. Her passion and joy are absolutely contagious! I immediately downloaded the audible of this book and downloaded any and all podcasts available for download. I find her testimony to be one of inspirati...

    I received an ARC from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Honestly, the only reason I'm writing this review is that I agreed to after receiving an advanced copy from the publisher. I had never heard of Rachel Hollis before being part of the adv...
