Her first book, The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide to (Almost) All Things Fashionable, was published in 2008. Be Awesome: Modern Life for Modern Ladies followed in 2013. According to Jennifer Lipman in The Jewish Chronicle, it is "a detailed attack on how women are both portrayed and conditioned to act in public life". In 2015, she released the book Life Moves Pretty Fast.

In her books, Freeman discusses cinema, particularly from the 1980s, and she occasionally appears in the media to discuss films. She has said that her favourite film is the original Ghostbusters and that she has collected books and articles connected to the film.

Following an article for The Guardian in July 2013 criticising misogynistic behaviour, Freeman became the target of a bomb threat on Twitter.
