A book I enjoyed. The tale of the forming of a rock band in the 70s (my decade). Sex, love, rock n roll and how each member travels that crazy highway. Written as an interview with each band member and producers. Well done
I chose Daisy Jones as an audiobook and I was impressed. I LOVE that it was set up like listening to an HBO special via podcast.
The story broke my heart and every time I thought someone would do something unforgivable and force me to write them off - they earned my trust back.
I both admired and hated Daisy, especially early on. And the Six, for as many of them as there were to follow, I felt like I knew them all. Understood them even.

This was the first book I read this year, that blew my away. The characters felt so real, and it was quite a shock coming out of the reading bubble and having to realize that this band is fictional and I can‘t go online to listen to their music
I can‘t decide on which of these covers I prefer. I think both captures different parts of the story
I‘m so glad you‘re doing this again this year @emilyrose_x
Great book! I can definitely see why it's received all the hype that it has, and also why people wonder if it's a real band. I loved the interview style it was written & the little twist with the author interjection near the end. Yes, I feel like this book definitely deserves the praise it has received. I thought including the songs at the end of the book was a really neat idea, as well... Very cool touch. Five star.
Just bought this while Black Friday shopping... I couldn't resist Target's supposed buy two books, get one free deal... Although I overheard a cashier saying what they really do is just take a little bit off the price of each book... 🤷 regardless, I'm excited to start it. I also bought The Water Dancer and The Library Book
I usually don‘t do fiction in audio book form, but Daisy Jones & The Six was made for this format. I‘m loving this so much and totally binge listening today as I do chores around the house (so grateful to have the day off!) I hope you all are having a great Thanksgiving weekend ❤️
Honestly, I'm speechless. Reading this story, I became ravenous. I'm blown away by TJR's writing style here! I can't believe I let this sit on my shelf for MONTHS scared it wouldn't measure up to Evelyn Hugo. Shame on me! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Daisy was born to be a rock star. Billy emoted star status. Bringing them together was an explosion of star power that captivated the 70s. But, it was Billy's true love of Camila, the unsung hero, that left me wrenching.
Also so stinkin cool she included lyrics to some songs!
At first, I think you start getting high to dull your emotions, to escape from them. But after a while you realize that the drugs are what are making your life untenable, they are actually what are heightening every emotion you have. It's making your heartbreak harder, your good times higher.
Wow!! I didnt know if Daisy was going to live up to Evelyn but she sure did! I absolutely loved how the book was written and the twist at the end. TJR is an amazing writer and i really enjoy her different writing styles. The way she wrote this one it really makes you feel like you were there and in it. Definitely recommend.
Love when I have a little extra time to sit and read before I have to get ready for work.
Our latest episode of Books On The Go is up: Daisy Jones and the Six. 🎧 We had fun casting the Amazon tv series - lucky we‘re not casting agents! 😜 Available where podcasts live.
My sister and I have been casting Daisy Jones since we read the book last March. We didn‘t consider the granddaughter of Elvis Presley for the part. But yeah!
