Wildflower | Drew Barrymore
Award-winning actress Drew Barrymore shares funny, insightful, and profound stories from her past and present told from the place of happiness she's achieved today. Wildfloweris 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.

I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't that! Their was nothing exciting about it. She had a pretty hard life but then again so have we all, I didn't know much about her in the younger years that was interesting to read, there should have been more about that though. #librarybook #readingthelibrary #drewbarrymore #autobiography

I really was excited to read this book because I love Drew Barrymore. Unfortunately, I didn‘t love it. I enjoyed learning more about her, but parts of this were really slow and repetitive and it didn‘t really flow for me. There were parts I liked - especially the chapter about Adam Sandler, but overall I just wasn‘t super interested in this. I didn‘t love the writing and found it to be a bit disjointed.

A mostly light-hearted, non-linear memoir. I enjoyed Drew‘s stories, and hearing her read it on audio was fun - minus the moments of dramatic screaming & screeching. 🙉

Wow today has been a day of #audiobooks and #steps I finished off Navigating Early during my walk to the post office. I wasn‘t quite ready to quit being active, but it started snowing (it is May, right? 🙄) so I decided to walk the halls of my apartment, and listen to the rest of Wildflower. 🌺 While doing flights of stairs, I seen this happy little deer outside. Being close to the lake, we see them often, but they always make me smile. 🦌

TheReadingMermaid I have this book sitting on my shelf. I have been meaning to read it 6mo
Clwojick @TheReadingMermaid I loved the audio book, but can definitely see it being great as a physical book too. It had a very “furiously happy“ vibe to it. I was definitely giggling to myself whilst pacing the apartment hallways. I'm sure my neighbors don't think i'm weird at all. 6mo

#nonfiction2019 #madeyoulaugh This was so refreshing and down to earth, with many comedic moments. The silly side of Drew shines through! Rather than a linear telling, this was snippets of experiences from Drew‘s life, that illustrate her coming of age into a beautiful grounded centered woman , wife, mother. I didn‘t realize her youth had been so difficult, she‘s come a long way, and tells her story with heart and humor! ❤️🌸 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Received my order today. I just ordered this one for me as I was searching Candle man by Glenn Dakin for my daughter . She read the first book back in 4th grade and she liked it so much she asked me to get it for her. I went to several stores and it wasn‘t in stock. I search on Thrift books and found the first and second part. That‘s when I saw wildflower on sale.

Drew Barrymore continues to be one of my favorite actresses. I have loved her personality and her contagious smile for a long time, and this book had me smiling, laughing (our loud,) and even shedding a tear.

I give Drew a lot of credit for Wildflower and opening up like she has. She shares several fun, and some serious, personal stories that I never would have known had I not picked this one up.

Definitely recommend for fans like me!

flying_monkeys I absolutely adore her as Sheila in Santa Clarita Diet. Gonna have to give this book a read. 🤓 9mo

This was such a great listen! There were times she actually screamed in her book which was a little off putting, but overall it had some depth to it that I really enjoyed. She talked about her childhood and how difficult it was, had no idea how crazy her parents were. Glad she's in a better place and happy! #audiobook

Took a long walk to my doctor's appointment & listened to Wildflower by Drew Barrymore. The chapter where she talked about the love of her dogs and how hard it was losing them, I tried so hard not to sob uncontrollably as I walked by the nation's Capitol building....I failed. So sweet how she described the joy they brought her & the anguish of losing them. All pet owners will feel this at some point & I'M NOT READY FOR THAT! #Litsywalkers #catmom

Does anyone wait to commit to reading a book on Listy and or Goodreads until your a few chapters in? 🙋🏻‍♀️

I did the audiobook of this. While I love Drew‘s enthusiasm as she is reading, her story was hard to follow. She jumped from story to story and it was not cohesive.

I love the characters that Drew has portrayed. I love that we were born the same year and our lives are so very different (she‘s rich I‘m not; she‘s a celebrity I‘m not...) so I just knew that I would love this book. Ummm no. Maybe if I read it instead of listening to her scream and over dramatize every chapter (yeah yeah she‘s an actress) I may have given it a so-so. Good effort ( she‘s written a book I haven‘t). # audiobooks

I remember walking in & seeing a yellow sign on her fridge that said, "HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE." I stared at it. I loved it, but it took me twenty years to realize that it's the word "choice" that is so powerful. You must make that choice all the time. And the people I follow in life are the kind of people who are capable of making that choice all the time. Consistently.

A (mostly) light-hearted look at Barrymore‘s free-spirited, adventurous life and the troubled childhood that taught her lessons she needed to learn to be the (mostly) stable adult and dependable mother she is today. Charming, funny, and moving.

3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars - I listened to the audiobook of #Wildflower by #DrewBarrymore over the course of two days. I enjoyed the content, but I think I would have liked it a lot better in print, which is not typical for me with memoirs. I didn‘t like the non-linear timeline. She seemed a little out of touch and her overdone dramatic voice (and screaming—so much screaming) drove me crazy. It was okay, but I like her better in interviews. #jpbookreview

Her warmth and vivaciousness can be felt and heard as she talks, screams, and growls her way through various trials and errors and reminds me that sometimes I just have to say "f@ck it" and get pass the hard times because no one else is going to do it for me

Caroline2 Me too! Whenever I have seen her in interviews, she comes across as so down to earth and lovely! Have you seen ‘riding in cars with boys‘? It‘s my fave Drew Barrymore film! ❣ 2y
Jess7 Yes, I have. I liked her before, but after watching her on this talk show, I really, really like her! I always appreciate it when a people are honest and down-to-earth. She talked about gaining weight in between projects, and how a woman came up to her and said you‘re obviously expecting, and she was like yeah, that woman was a b****. I‘m not retelling it well, but it came off so honest. @Caroline2 2y

I kinda love Drew, and she definitely has some stories to tell! We all know about the rough go she had as a kid and a teen, and it‘s inspiring how she pulled through it all and found her way, on her terms. This isn‘t a chronological memoir. These are stories that according to Drew, are standouts from her life. It reads as if she is relaying her stories to a friend, and the reader is that friend! #nonfiction2018

Each one left me in tears, something new learned, and a completely different perspective on so many things. Drew's positivity and happiness radiates throughout this book. I've never read something that spoke to me in such a personal way. You have truly inspired me Drew Barrymore. I wish to be like you one day.

This book has been so inspirational & surprisingly relatable for me. I've found myself teary-eyed during almost every chapter. Drew's writing makes you feel like she's sitting in the room telling you the stories herself. Not only that, her experiences are so much like my own which I wasn't expecting. It's encouraging to know someone so iconic has struggled, yet overcame & achieved so many great things ❤

"Audiobook" I suggest if you want to read this book, or interested in this book, DO NOT listen to the audio. The amount of screaming and grunts are distracting and annoying. Some of the stories she tells are good, then others have very little to do with anything. Some stories flow decently, others are trying to make a point I am still trying to figure out. You can read a little, then go back in a couple of months and not miss a thing.

I listened to this on audiobook because I love her voice and she narrates her book herself!
My interest in this book stemmed purely from the fact that I have been a huge Drew Barrymore fan my whole life. Riding In Cars With Boys. Charlie's Angels. The Wedding Singer. And so much more.
I cried when she talked about her dogs. Hit close to home.
