Book Review: Unfiltered
Author: Lily Collins
4 out of 5 stars
I have recently started reading more non-fiction and I have enjoyed what I have read thus far! I think branching out from what you normally read is fun and exciting, although Fiction (Fantasy in particular) will always be my go-to genre.
Lily Collins book, Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, is about her personal journey. The book covers a variety of topics from dating, to self-love to eating disorders. This book was a fast and easy read. I felt like I really got to know more about Lily Collins and her personal life.
Although this book contains a lot of good material, I want to let you know that I don’t agree with everything this book says. When reading anything, it is important to be discerning and stay true to what you believe.
Warning: This book does contain topics covering eating disorders, abusive relationships and addiction.
Page 7 – “‘Different’ shouldn’t be considered confusing, nagative, or something that divides us. It should be a quality we applaud and admire within ourselves and others.”
Page 26 – “And, at the same time, I must acknowledge that the darkeness is important because I can’t know what the light feels like without it.”
Page 27 – “My worth is not defined by their actions because their actions are not a reflection of my worth.”
In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and the upcoming Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She’s learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.
Thanks for reading this book review!
