Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
It is expected to be published on March 5, 2019, by Ballantine Books.
I didn’t finish Reid’s latest book, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo because I had to return the book back to the library. I’m waiting for the hold to be done with so I can get back to reading it. I’m anticipating to get back to it and try to see what happened! So far, what I’ve read, so good. When I first found out about this, I was like, “Yes.” If I’m in love withThe Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo… I’m sure I’m going to love this novel as well. The only question, will it beat The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo?
I typically don’t like the faces on the cover. I sometimes like to create them in my head so they can act out what I’ve read thus far. But for some reason, I love the old school picture here. The hair. The color. The undertones. It gives you the feel of the ’70s. I’m very curious about what you think of the cover?
A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup. “Beautifully layered and complex… I devoured Daisy Jones & The Six in a day, falling head over heels for it. Daisy and the band captured my heart.” — Reese Witherspoon
Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity… 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 and 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.
Another band getting noticed is The Six, 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 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. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

Right? I cannot wait for this book as you obviously know. haha. I’m curious about where the author is going with this book.
The cover is really striking. I usually don’t like faces on covers either, but I like the vintage-y feel to this one. I haven’t read Seven Husbands yet, but it’s on my list!
