Girl Stop Apologizing

A Self Help book by Rachel Hollis

Description: Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women being afraid of their own goals.They’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough. But the biggest fear of all is of being judged for having ambition at all. Having been taught to define themselves in light of other people—whether as wife, mother, daughter, friend, or team member—many women have forgotten who they are and what they were meant to be. In Girl, Stop Apologizing, entrepreneur and online personality ( Rachel Hollis encourages women to own their hopes, desires, and goals and reminds them they don’t need permission to want more. With a call to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and the biggest possible version of their lives.

I received an ARC of this book from Harper Collins Canada in exchange for an honest review! This book is set to be released on March 12th 2019

Apparently it’s a self help book. There was quite a bit of rambling on and on about things that aren’t really vital to the chapters.. I feel like it was meant to be uplifting and inspiring.. but it wasn’t. It was kind of depressing, there’s this woman who basically thinks she’s perfect and has figured it all out bragging about her life but not really helping you to achieve anything. Yes she says what she thinks you need to change to live a “shame free” life but there wasn’t really anything helpful (and honestly it felt a little judgy the whole time. at times it made me feel very inadequate… which in my opinion isn’t what someone who would want to read this type of book wants to feel. I also didn’t like that she thought she was so hilarious, she wrote it like as if you’re having a conversation with a ‘sis’ and basically laughs at her own jokes. It was odd. In the book she says how she felt judged for being a working mom, but then turns around and made me feel judged for being a stay at home mom.. so…hello pot, meet kettle. I really didn’t enjoy this “self help” book at all. I think if you are looking for a proper self help book, one to help you be all that you want to be, to help love yourself and to be unapologetically unique… then I suggest you find a different one.

I rate this book

  1. So many people practically worship Rachel Hollis & I have a hard time understanding why? Your review makes me feel better knowing I’m not the only one who felt this way about her book.

    1. Yea, I felt the same way at first! It seemed like I was the only one who felt that way.. but then after i read it I checked out the reviews on Goodreads and saw that a lot of people felt the same! Definitely not worth reading it
