Written by: Carrie Fisher

I read: the ebook
Carrie Fisher pens an entertaining look at her life in Hollywood with “Wishful Drinking.” Filled with ups and downs, Carrie takes the reader on a journey through life heartfelt humor.
Fisher starts with a look at her parents and takes the reader though her journey of adolescence. She talks about the impact of Star Wars on her life, reoccurring themes in her life, her loves, her loses, drug use, and how her bipolar diagnosis has affected her life.
Fisher reveals that she wrote “Wishful Drinking” to reclaim what was left of her former life. Her writing style is easy to read and sincere. The novel is filled with humor and honesty. I felt like a welcomed friends as I read her memoir.
Fisher shares pictures and tidbits of her life which is a true delight for the reader.
“Wishful Drinking” is a heartfelt memoir, deserving of Carrie’s fans. I picked up the book when I heard Fisher had a cardiac episode and I’m so glad I got to her before she passed away. This is Carrie Fisher, raw, honest, sincere, candid, and the princess of our hearts. I highly recommend this book.
