“Girl Wash Your Face” is a cross between a motivational self-help book and an autobiography on the life of Rachel Hollis. She walks you through all avenues of her life. The whole time explaining her highs, her lows, and what kept her going. Throughout this book she sets out 21 totally relatable lies that woman are constantly telling themselves, and how she has combatted each and every one of them. Each lie she tears down with a truthful, yet entertaining story. Some stories are lighthearted and funny, others are extremely dark and uncomfortable. However they are all emotional and real.
Each chapter in this story feels like a long, heartfelt talk that you would have with your best friend over coffee (or wine). Even though she has experienced things that not everyone else has, she describes them in such a way that they feel relatable. Rachel has a way of writing that make it feel like she is talking directly to you. She writes in a friendly, casual fashion, but also with a sense of purpose and authority.
Although this book is very well written, I would describe it as more of a “motivational short story compilation” than a self-help book. The advice it has throughout it is rather generic, but makes for an entertaining read. If you are looking for a self-help book then I’m not sure you will find it here, as the main point throughout the entire book is “Get it together!”. But if you are looking for motivational book with entertaining short stories, definitely give it a go.
On another note, it came as a bit of a shock to me as to how religious this book actually was. It was very much “god has a plan” which caught me off guard a little bit. However if you are not religious I wouldn’t say it’s a deal breaker.
