    I listened to the audiobook and I gotta say, Taylor Jenkins Reid has knocked it out of the park again. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. This audiobook was one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to and I am SO GLAD that I decided to take in the story that way. It was narrated by a full cast and I just about died when my girl Judy Greer started speaking in my ear as the voice of Karen Karen. Seriously y'all, so fucking good. I WILL SAY, the reason I'm ...

    Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a 2019 Ballantine Books publication. Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll! I mean, that’s what the seventies were all about, man!! Right? Taylor Jenkins Reid has done an admirable job of creating the atmosphere and mindset of the seventies and the rock bands that were catapulted to success beyond their wildest dreams. From their humble incarnation to their mega-stardom, to their slide down into relative ob...

      We love broken, beautiful people. And it doesn’t get much more obviously broken and classically beautiful than Daisy Jones. I so connected to this book as it took me back to my teen years of the 1970’s in which music, specifically rock n roll, played a huge part. My now husband and I were always traveling to big concert events in our late teens. One of the most memorable was on July 30, 1978, where we stood in the sweltering heat just fee...

    With a touch of the tribulations of Fleetwood Mac, Reid offers a very different novel from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It is equally as enjoyable. From the onset we know that the band breaks up. The reasons for the break-up are told by the band mates via a series of question-less interviews. This is smart choice rather a question/answer structure which would, I think, become tedious. From 1965 through 2012, the characters tell the story of...

    I'm realizing now that I'm one of those folks in the minority when it comes to TJR and her most recent books. I fell in love with her contemporary romance novels years ago, but have found that I struggle with her historical fiction, which is strange because it seems these are the stories that have catapulted her into mainstream fiction! Uber Fame Level-Achieved! Here's the thing, it must be more a case of my not being as interested in and compati...

    Is there anyone in their 60s or older that doesn’t see the cover for this book, read the summary and doesn’t immediately think of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac? Reid does a great job capturing that sense of stardom; the sex, drugs and rock n roll. I love how this book is written, as if it is a history of an actual band, as if it’s a compilation of interviews with everyone involved. It was wild to see how different things said or done were ...

    This had a really rough start and I almost dnfed it but oh man am I glad I stuck it out. Before I knew it Daisy and Billy were imprinted on my heart and I was so invested in this story.

    This is one for music fans everywhere from Taylor Jenkins Reid, a multilayered fictional documentary of a fictional legendary rock band set in the music scene of California and LA in the 1960s and 1970s. This is to be turned into a TV series on Amazon by Reece Witherspoon, and I must add that though the accounts given in the narrative are pure fiction, it nevertheless feels atmospherically real in its echoes of actual bands from this era, say per...

    "I am not a muse. I am the somebody. End of fucking story."I am a gigantic music fan. I was in a band in high school and college, and sing almost everywhere. As much as I love music and lyrics, I'm equally as fascinated by those who make the music and what inspires them to write the songs they do, not to mention the stories of connection and tension and dissension among band members."This obsession was one of the myriad reasons I couldn't wait to...

    5 stars...I love this author!I love rock music! As a child of the 80s and 90s there was plenty to choose from. Even though it was clear from the start that Daisy and the Six is a work of fiction, I found myself wishing it were historical fiction based on fact, and I legitimately googled them. I WANTED Daisy and the Six to be real because they felt so real. I’m a huge fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid, and her books are always smart and passionate abou...

    4****So as 2018 closes, Daisy Jones and The Six was my last book of the year. Daisy Jones and The Six details the rise and sudden fall of the rock band in the 70's, with a brief cut through to the present decade. This whole book is written as an interview transcript of the band (and those associated with it) in the present day, detailing the past of the flawed but iconic Daisy Jones and the prominent members of The Six (mainly the heart throb, Bi...

    !! NOW AVAILABLE !! I had not read anything by Taylor Jenkins Reid before I received an advanced copy of this; I’d read the publisher’s synopsis of this story and was drawn to the setting, the era, and the idea of it all. And then yesterday, I read Reid’s Evidence of the Affair and I knew I wanted to read this one right away, so I set aside the one I’d planned to read next and grabbed this one. I’m so glad I did. A coming-of-age story s...

    I have read one other book One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I loved it. Ugh.. and unfortunately this one missed the mark :(. I have been seeing raving 5 star reviews and TONS of hype for this one. So, naturally I was convinced I would be giving this a 5 star. I am clearly in the minority on this one as usual haha ;). I think I wasn't the right type of audience for this book.... because I was annoyed very quickly with the drugs, rock and ...

    5 Shining Rock 'n' Roll Stars! I used to think soul mates were two of the same. I used to think I was supposed to look for somebody that was like me. I don't believe in soul mates anymore and I'm not looking for anything. But if I did believe in them, I'd believe your soul mate was somebody who had all the things you didn't, that needed all the things you had. Not somebody who's suffering from the same stuff you are. Did you ever watch VH1 behind...

    Jumping into the fictional world of Daisy Jones & The Six was an emotional roller coaster ride I was not prepared for. Written to portray the good times and bad times of a band trying to make it big in the late sixties – early seventies, I was immediately drawn to this title. The form of this book is one that I particular enjoy. This story is presented like reading the transcript to a documentary; a written interview. The dialogue jumps between...

    4 stars! “We love broken, beautiful people. And it doesn’t get much more obviously broken and more classically beautiful than Daisy Jones.” This book chronicles the events of the band Daisy Jones and the Six from the 1960’s to the present. The story of how a young girl became a songwriter and then a member of the band on its way up to fame, The Six, led by Billy Dunne. Billy and Daisy clash dramatically at first. But when two people ha...

    Thank you to Random House Publishing Group-Ballantine for providing an advance reader copy via NetGalley.I love reading celebrity biographies, particularly rock biographies. However, this one is unique in the fact that it's a fictional rock biography, and it's in oral history/interview format. When reading biographies, I find the oral history method the most fulfilling because it removes barriers; you're hearing it "straight from the horse's mout...

    Being a Reid fan, loving Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and with a very heavy heart, sadly I will need to say I really didn't like this book. I'm very surprised with this book, and all I can do is to say why I didn't like it. Maybe it wasn't for me and lots of other people would love such a read:1. I really didn't get along with the format. It was in the shape of interviews with different people, and it shifted very fast in dialogue format. I thi...

    4.5 stars (rounded all the way up)!There is just no way in hell that I can’t round those stars up to 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! Mainly because I flew through it. I had to painfully force myself to stop reading and put my iPad down to tend to life. I took half of a star away because I loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo just slightly more. Slightly.I can’t explain the sheer excitement I felt when I got approved for Taylor Jenkins Reid’s newest bo...

    What a wild ride this was! Taylor Jenkins Reid morphed us right into the 70's and into the rock and roll scene. It doesn't get much wilder than that. I have been dying to read this and have had to use a great deal of self control to put it off closer to the publication date. Brenda from Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee and myself jumped into this for a buddy read. It certainly gave us plenty to talk about!I watched a recent interview with Taylor Jenk...

    Felt like I watched an amazing documentary while I’m reading an exhilarating book. It’s an unforgettable ride with full of not much sex, but too much drugs and rock&roll. I love the lyrics, especially “ Impossible woman”, “ Regret me” and “ Turn it off” and of course “ A hope like you”!Welcome to the 70’s world with the rising of a rock band, smashing egos of group members, emotional turmoils, pain of creativity and performi...
