Love the straight forward approach the author has in offering common sense advise every woman should follow. A good book worth the read.
The author in her book tries to educate other girls on what to do to avoid making unnecessary mistakes in their lives. One of the main mistakes that girls/women make is using their emotion and not logic which may result in them being treated less than the queens that they are. The information in the book is very straightforward and educative and should be read by every girl. This book is exciting and full of scenarios that most women can relate to. Definitely a must read, especially for females who want to learn how to maneuver through life being smarter, become successful, while avoiding making unnecessary #girlmistakes.

My first reaction was less than positive, but the more I read “Don’t Make #Girl Mistakes,” the more I liked it. The tone was offsetting, but I think given Ms. Amazin’s audience, one that works. She’s talking to girls who, with a college degree or not, want to get out there and get the job/career they want.
Ms. Amazin’s advice concerning men is basically the same advice girls hear on the street, i.e., don’t sell yourself short. Don’t fall in love with the first guy who flips you a ring he bought at the pawnshop, sort of advice. And frankly, I think girls need to hear that even now in the millennium.
I liked the earthy tone and straight-forward advice. Very well done! Five stars!

I like Grace. She takes care of business, follows her own advice, and wants to be the rising tide that lifts all boats. This is a great introduction to a can-do woman who wants to share what has worked for her.

This book is a game-changer! 2020 the WORST year of my life (no surprise!!!!) hittin brick walls and work a total nightmare! But I figured it outt! I was being basic to.the.core. The first time I read this (Yeah I read it more than once!) its like I actually had my eyes open. This book MAKES SENSe!! Feel like 2021 I’m focused on being on top of my game again. Getting my mojo back! Already been telling my friends about this! Fr pick this up.
Direct, and honest, no-bs self-help. I work in the finance sector and I’m satisfied with my career and professional life. Unfortunately, when it comes to dating it seems like there is something wrong with me. I’ve looked at other self-help books but most come across as very sterile and impersonal. Reading through ‘Don’t Make Girl Mistakes’ I could feel the author’s personality on every page. Her candor and honesty is refreshing and her advice is relevant, helping me to finally recognize the warning signs I ‘ve been missing when it comes to finding the right guys to date. Since reading I’ve learned that I need to re-evalate my dating life and avoid the mistake of constantly going after the wrong men. Eye-opening and impactful writing, ‘Don’t Make Girl Mistakes’ is a book for the modern woman.

Grace is an absolute tonic! I got this for a cousin and she’s already a total fan! She is a big believer in karma and ‘what goes around comes around’ so when she read what the author wrote about how to give ‘without expectations’ it really clicked with her. I enjoyed reading it myself because as a man it’s good to learn how women think, besides the writing is easy to follow. An interesting, engrossing new book, could be an ideal stocking filler!

Written in a powerful, authentic voice of real-life experience, this is your home-girl. Ms. Amazin gives very good, solid advice for more than just girls who might be in danger of making mistakes when on the wrong end of an imbalance of power (which, for many of us, is most of the time). She pulls no punches, but refrains from being unnecessarily offensive while still telling it like it is. Highly recommended.

I’ve always had an interest in self-betterment and personal growth so when I came across this book I thought I’d try it out. ‘Don’t Make Girl Mistakes: The Do’s & Dont’s in Life’ is well-written and the common-sense, conversational style means it’s easy to take in what’s being said. This book talks ‘to’ you instead of ‘at’ you, and I just think it’s really cool that the author is able to share her knowledge and experience like this. This book will definitely make you think twice about how to make moves in your life with logic, just like playing chess.

A read filled with tons of examples of do’s and don’ts every coming of age woman needs to read. If you want to get through life a little wiser and make less “girly” mistakes, this can be a great eye-opener self-help type of book. It’s an easy smooth read you won’t regret.
Reading this book felt like I had a second mother figure in my life. The author really feels like a friend, genuinely helping to guide you through all the different facets of life including being focused in your professional life, how to spot relationships that are likely to go downhill and not work out, and even the idea of ‘frenemies’ and how to be giving without expecting things in return. It’s a great guide told from a down-to-earth perspective. Highly recommend this read!
