Weekly Update

While being back at work meant my “book-a-day habit” was not able to be maintained this past week, I did read --- and thoroughly enjoy --- DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid, which is coming out on March 5th. It’s novel about an iconic 1970s band and their oh-so-very hot lead singer, finally telling the tale of why the band broke up. It’s fiction, but people have been speculating on what band this could be based on; a few rumblings I have heard from librarian pals is that Daisy could be based on Stevie Nicks. While many books these days are told chapter by chapter by different narrators, here we have the story told paragraph by paragraph from the points of view of the six band members and Daisy. It’s a wickedly smart way to tell a story, and Taylor completely pulls it off.
