"I am reading Animals by Emma Jane Unsworth, slowly and deliberately, a chapter per night like it's an advent calendar. For some reason there is nothing cozier to me in film form that stories of British female friendship (Career Girls, Me Without You) and here it is in book form, only with the acidic aftertaste of a deceptively fizzy drink. Three cheers for this take of alcoholic love between platonic soul mates."
"So many of us grew up thinking of Drew Barrymore as our ultimate girl crush (way before the term became a thing with a hashtag!). We knew about her struggles with drugs and alcohol when she was a kid, but then through movies like "Batman Forever," and "Never Been Kissed," she became the woman we both wanted to be AND be friends with. In her new memoir, "Wildflower," Drew guides us through her life, with the sunny and positive outlook that has characterized the Drew we know now. Reading it feels like you're just having a chat with an old friend, and you will be inspired to simply live the best life you can. And ok, you'll definitely fall in love with Drew a little bit more. Apparently it's possible!"
