Review: Daisy Jones & The Six

It’s the late sixties in Los Angeles and Daisy Jones is living the life. Sneaking into clubs, sleeping with rockstars, and yes doing drugs. But amidst it all, she just wants to sing. When she hits her twenties, her voice is finally garnering some attention, and so are her looks.

39DB3A87-6022-4ABB-8506-BB1AA38BC418Billy Dunne and his band, The Six, are trying to break into the rock n’ roll scene. In the process, Billy struggles with his sobriety and balancing his rockstar lifestyle with the family he’s building. Along the way, a producer introduces Daisy to Billy and suddenly a legend is born.

Ok, so I love music. Like, really really love it. My husband used to be a bassist in a band for years. So when I heard about Daisy Jones & The Six I desperately wanted to read it. It took me forever to find a copy because everyone kept selling out of them!

I could not put this book down! I loved every minute of the story. Taylor Jenkins Reid writes from a unique perspective which sucks you in. My only complaint would be that I wish I could hear the songs mentioned in the book. The multiple characters that make up the story are easy to like, although you may question some of their decisions. But that’s rock n’ roll, right? Daisy Jones & The Six is sure to make a splash for all book lovers.

The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I’ve never done one of these and thought it might be fun to check out others’ playlists. Since I’m almost always listening to music, and have more than my fair share of playlists on Spotify, I thought this would be a good one to try out!

Rules:
1. Put your playlist on shuffle and listen to the first 15 songs (no cheating).
2. Tag 10 others to play along.

So I didn’t do number 2 but if you want to play along, have at it!

1. Clavicle – Alkaline Trio

2. Lupen Tooth – Blitzkid

3. Psycho Killer – Talking Heads

4. This Could Be Love – Alkaline Trio

5. Only Lovers Left Alive – The (International) Noise Conspiracy
