I know you’re expecting me to say ‘a good book’ but most of the time it’s actually Netflix and/or Youtube 😁😁
A book you’ve been meaning to read forever
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Along with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Daisy Jones & The Six is one of those books that I’m expecting to rate 5 stars. The synopsis plus the fact that I love music is the reason why I want to read this book.
“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”.
An Intimidating book on your TBR
The Poppy War by R.F Kuang
If you’re on book twitter you know that this books is SO hyped. I’ve only read good things about it and how I ‘need’ to read it ASAP. I’m intimidated by this book exactly because of this. The expectations are too high 🤷♀️
Top 3 Priority books on my TBR
Since I already said that Daisy Jones & The Six is already a priority I won’t add this one here.
1.The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
2. House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
3. Vicious by V.E Schwab
You can read about the expectations that I have for these 3 books here
Recommend a Short Book
The Outsiders by S.E Hinton
I don’t remember much about this book but it’s the first one that comes to mind for ‘a short book’. It’s 192 pages long.
From what I remember, I liked it but don’t take my word for it because I read it when I was like 13 years old😅.
Recommend a Long Book
Am I too basic if I say A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas? 😅 That’s the first one I can think of because I don’t usually go for really long books. They are too intimidating hehe
Something You’d Love to Do While Stuck At Home
Improve my drumming skills. It’s a hobby that I picked up like two years ago and I love it. Because of the pandemic I was no longer able to continue with my lessons but I have a small drumming kit at home so I can improve at least a bit. And of course, I would like to read more books from by TBR while stuck at home 🙂
What Do You Plan on Reading Next?
Either Daisy Jones & The Six or The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Next time I order a book, I’ll buy these two books at once (at least that’s the plan).

If you have read The Poppy War, is it as intimidating as it seems to me?
