Review: Wildflower by Drew Barrymore

by Drew Barrymore

Publisher: Dutton
Pages: 288
Format: audiobook
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges, and incredible experiences of her earlier years. It includes tales of living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy, and healthy place she is today. It is the first book Drew has written about her life since the age of 14.

Kritters Thoughts:  Read via audiobook and my new Scribd membership, I loved experiencing this book via audio!  As a side note, I have only listened to a handful of books, but all have been in the celebrity memoir genre and I have loved them all!

This was no exception.  It was less memoir and more a collection of short stories, but I loved it.  It did not go in chronological order, which may have bugged me a few times, but I can get over it.  I thought I knew most of Drew Barrymore's story as her personal life has hit the news throughout the years, but I loved "reading" through her eyes and her telling the stories that matter to her.

I absolutely recommend listening as Drew narrates it herself and she puts her own unique touch on certain moments.  She yells, she laughs and I even feel like I heard some teary moments, it was perfectly emotional and I would love to hear her read something else.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
