Sunday Book Club – Wildflower, Drew Barrymore

Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews. Today we are going to look at the autobiography of Drew Barrymore.

Wildflower (2015)

Drew Barrymore


Wildflower is a portrait of Drew’s life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges and incredible experiences she’s had. It will inspire, delight and show the true meaning of family, happiness and love.

– from Waterstones

Positive Points

It is a book that really gives you an insight into Drew Barrymore and you will learn a lot that you may not have known before. The book has a lot of ‘raw’ moments where she is being brutally honest about herself and the life that she has led. There are some great anecdotes behind the scenes on films like E.T and Charlie’s Angels but the stand out is the fun stories about her friendship with Adam Sandler.

Negative Points

I would say that at times it can feel a tad repetitive as she goes in depth about certain things more then once. 

Overall Review

If you want a book that has a lot of exciting stories about life inside Hollywood then this is a book for you! This is a very honest book and Drew opens up about her family, her ‘wild’ past and filming some of her iconic roles. It is a book where you will see another side of the actress and learn a lot about her at the same time. She states right at the beginning that she wants the book to be something where people can read a chapter and then head back to it as and when they want to and that is exactly what I would say it was – a very easy book to read but you can always come back to it at other times instead of reading it fluidly.
