5 Reasons Why Drew Barrymore's New Book is Bound to Inspire

5 Reasons Why Drew Barrymore's New Book is Bound to Inspire

She's been through it all — and we're anxiously awaiting the release of her next book.

We've been taught not to judge a book by its cover — but in the case of Drew Barrymore's latest "Wildflower," we can't resist. The actress revealed the art for her title (which is available for pre-order) and we couldn't be more excited to tear into its undoubtedly exuberant pages.

The book will reportedly chronicle the star's struggles and successes, but as told "from the place of happiness she's achieved today." We know this one's going to be a real inspirational read; when it comes to motivating us with words, Barrymore's never lacking. Need a little pick-me-up on this Tuesday morning? We've collected a few of our fave messages she’s sent us over the years. Take it away, Drew.
