I recently listened to the Rachel Hollis Girl, Wash Your Face book. After finishing it, I can see why it gets so much praise. I thought it might be helpful to share a quick summary and review, and encourage you to purchase and check it out, too!

I should also mention that if you are listening to the audiobook (and especially if there are children within earshot), use earbuds or headphones. This book discusses some adult/mature topics (intimacy) and topics that might be triggering to some people (the mental illness/suicide of her brother).
Each chapter of the book discusses a lie Rachel Hollis used to believe, and ends with a list of things that helped her overcome that lie that wasn’t serving her. The audiobook is read by the author, which is a benefit because of the personality shown in the reading. I found most of the “lies” relatable, and even the ones that I didn’t relate to were insightful. The book is well articulated, funny, and inspiring.
I love how the book made me reevaluate and question my own limiting beliefs. For example, she discussed a stressful time when she was self-medicating with alcohol. While I may not have an issue with that particular vice, I have some other coping mechanisms that probably make it harder for me to deal with problems when I return to them.
Girl Wash Your Face
The book challenges the lies you tell yourself. It empowers you to take responsibility for who you are and how happy you want to be. To take control of your life and overcome the lies that hold you back from your dreams. I really enjoyed it, especially in audiobook form! So go check out Girl, Wash Your Face.
