Get ready to channel your inner Stevie Nicks with this novel. I found that every time I opened up this book I was instantly inundated into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll mentality that was so quintessential within the 1970’s. Daisy Jones & The Six is a story about a fictitious band on their rise to stardom. I’ve never read a book before that made me NOT want to fly through it. I typically enjoy a good page turner, but this wasn’t that for me. I didn’t want this story to end! I read it slowly and savored every page. I found myself so invested in the life of Billy Dunne and his dedication towards the band, even more so when Daisy came along. I wanted to hate Daisy Jones, but also wanted to be her very best friend. Her ability to be so unapologetically herself is very empowering, hence why the character of Daisy is easy to get invested in as well.
I think that one of my favorite things about reading is the ability a good book has to make you feel like you’re living another life. This book was sex, drugs, and rock and roll. It makes you feel like you’re a free-spirited groupie along for the ride with the band and every experience that they go through.
Most days I enjoy waking up and being me. Teaching first grade, loving my husband, petting my cats, it’s not a bad life. But feeling like I was the missing member of the Stones every time I opened this book.. that’s not a bad life either. I would rate this 5/5 stars on Goodreads, Daisy Jones & The Six is a vibe you don’t want to miss.
“But loving somebody isn’t perfection and good times and laughing and making love. Love is forgiveness and patience and faith and every once in a while, it’s a gut punch. That’s why it’s a dangerous thing, when you go loving the wrong person. When you love somebody who doesn’t deserve it. You have to be with someone that deserves your faith and you have to be deserving of someone else’s. It’s sacred.”
“Passion is…it’s fire. And fire is great, man. But we’re made of water. Water is how we keep living. Water is what we need to survive. My family was my water. I picked water. I’ll pick water every time.”
“All I will say is you show up for your friends on their hardest days. And you hold their hands through the roughest parts. Life is about who is holding your hand and, I think, whose hand you commit to holding.”
This bath was just what I needed to indulge in a long soak with a groovy book. The book has a prevalent theme of drug use throughout it so I thought it would be cool to try out some CBD products! They turned out to be a little pricey, and then I stumbled upon this Hempz brand and was so very excited! The Sweet Pineapple and Honey Melon bath bomb had sweet undertones that were just heavenly and didn’t make me sleepy like a lavender normally does. The bath salts I could have done without, but they sure were pretty! The hair mask by Hask really made me feel like I was pampering myself! The profile picture doesn’t portray my frizzy red mane that’s usually tied up in some disastrous bun. As always, the bubbles were brought to you by none other than Dr. Teals.
I’ll leave you with some food for thought: You can’t pour from an empty cup. Make the time to keep your cup filled, so that you may fill others. If you should happen to fill your cup by partaking in a Book Bath.. well then “Cheers!” to you.
