Goodreads Monday 11/18 & The Inevitable and Really Terrible Reading Slump


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!!

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

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 🙂

  1. Don’t feel bad, everyone needs a break sometimes. Ever since I started blogging you have been so inspiring in every way in your commitment to this hobby and the amount you’ve read in the past four months has been incredible. I hope you you feel re-energized and come across some slump-breaking books soon. ❤

    1. thank you so much kitty. i’ve been so exhausted lately. and i’m just waaay too hard on myself.
      i have been reading again YAY. lmao it took some murder mysteries to get me started again but i did it!!


    1. it’s so hard…i feel like the season is definitely it. lmao i think me picking up some murder mysteries which are my faves help a bit and just stepping away from posting helped.


  2. I’m also in a reading slump right now. I have no idea why but it’s not a fun time. I’m thinking of changing things up to re-reads of old favs or something to make things fun again 😀 I’ve read so many positive reviews on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books but I still haven’t tried this yet either… one day! jen

    1. YES. re-reads i’m thinking will definitely help a lot!!! i started reading some murder mysteries will help a bit but im def going to re-read some more too ❤


  3. I hope you get out of your slump soon, they can be so frustrating. I kept falling in and out of them earlier this year. Now I’ve just fallen a bit behind with my current read thanks to this headache that keeps returning 😦
    I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it. I need to check out both of the authors popular books still. I recently found out about another interesting sounding one by her too so hopefully I’ll like her writing ☺️ and I hope that you find the book to pull you out of your slump too. I think rereading favourites can help or else picking up something completely different to usual with no expectations or pressure related to it.
