The reading slump is here
I don’t know if you’ve noticed by my posts have been sporadic as hell lately.
I’ve been playing the worst game of hopscotch with my books and nothing is interesting me.
I don’t know if it’s my depression, work overwhelming me, or a combo but it’s here and it’s clutching my heart and laughing at me and I’m really upset by all of this.
I feel bad that I’m not keeping up with comments and everyone else’s beautiful blogs and I’m mad at myself. I come home from work and I’m like aaah it’s time to take a nap and I pass out and it’s not enough.
With the books nothing captures my interest and that’s just sad as hell.
Sigh…so I’m sorry if it seems like I’m ignoring you or anything. I’m just…floating as time goes by.
ANYWAY enough of my whining. It’s Goodreads Monday ya’ll!!

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six: The band’s album Aurora came to define the rock ‘n’ roll era of the late seventies, and an entire generation of girls wanted to grow up to be Daisy. But no one knows the reason behind the group’s split on the night of their final concert at Chicago Stadium on July 12, 1979 . . . until now.
Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ‘n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.
Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.
The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.
Why I Wanna Read This…
I read Taylor Jenkins Reid book The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo with my book club earlier this year and absolutely loved it and this has been on my tbr and radar for a long long time.The premise excites me and a lot of the reviews have stated that is reads like a documentary so I am more than here for it. I actually might read this pretty soon because this might be the book that jars me out of this slump but we will see.
How are you all feeling this Monday??
I hope you all have a kick ass week!
And yes, Juliet’s Corner is coming to you later today 🙂
