SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
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 son’s 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.

MY REVIEW OF
Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be (B&N Exclusive Edition):
Non-fiction – Self-Help – Personal Development
I am going to start this review by letting you know, that I wasn’t planning on reading this book, BUT then I was at the library.. (and the story should be self explanatory from there). My library has a “fast reads” sections for books that you can only check out for a week at a time and then return, and the books are supposed to be easy to get through and fast to read so that you can return them on time.
This book was a fast read. Rachel Hollis pulls from her personal experiences and gives a lot of stories from her life in writing this book.
There was a lot of ideas and points that were made in this book that I agree with, but there were also a lot of things that I didn’t necessarily agree with as a Christian.
Through lies she’s told herself, Rachel Hollis takes her readers on a journey through her triumphs and losses, heartbreaking moments and celebrations.
❝Recognizing the lies we’ve come to accept about ourselves is the key to growing into a better version of ourselves.❞
I agree with the quote above that we all go through life believing different lies.
The end of this book was really motivating, the author gets you fired up to make a change in your life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading inspiring and motivating self-help books.
