I’m ashamed to say I just read this book and can’t believe I didn’t pick it up sooner. there were multiple times I had to re-read a line just to absorb how beautiful the words resonated with me. THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD QUOTES AND TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS NOVEL!
Daisy Jones and The Six is magical. I loved it and I seriously want to just read it all over again. It’s just such an insightful read on maturation, love, growing up, and growing into who you want to really be.
The novel follows the life of Daisy Jones as she climbs the ladder of fame in LA in the 70s. The story is written interview style between Daisy Jones and the band The Six. Like I said above, it’s magical. This story feels so, so real. It’s part coming of age, part love, part real life 70’s rock n roll. The song lyrics are such an amazing touch. I can’t recommend this book enough, it’s going on my “favorites” list! AND, it’s being made into an Amazon series! Please, please read the book before watching the series!
Here are a few quotes from Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid:
“I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse.
I am not a muse. I am the somebody.”
“It’s like some of us are chasing after our nightmares the way other people chase dreams.”
“Don’t count yourself out this early. You’re all sorts of things you don’t even know yet.
