Okay. Okay. Okay. Y’all! I finished this a few days ago and I cannot stop thinking about it. I’ve been walking around trying to come up with my own band name…with no band members. But that’s besides the point. I blame my friend Kayla for picking this book up. I will admit that I was nervous because 1. It’s not my typical go to type of read. 2. I don’t usually like what others swear by. But I am so glad that I took the time and gave this book a try.

I decided to listen to the audio-book because I felt like I would enjoy it more and I hit a solid on that one. I found myself at work engulfed in this world that Taylor Jenkins Reid created and I wasn’t mad at that.

Daisy Jones & The Six hold such a special place in my heart. Set in the the 1960’s-1970’s, we experience multiple points of views as we enjoy this tell all book about the band. We learn how the band formed and we jump on the roller-coaster that is their ending.

One thing that I loved about this book was how Taylor Jenkins Reid explores addiction in such a way that was poetic.

I cannot gush enough good things about this book. If you haven’t read it, GO READ IT. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Until next time, until the next book.

They Both Die At The End

Review: They Both Die At The End

By: Adam Silvera

5/5 stars

The concept of this book is so cool. On your Death Day, you get a phone call letting you know that you are going to die. What a heavy reality to carry for your last hours on earth? I like the fact that the two main characters live these two completely different lives and in the end they not only become friends but they experience a connection deeper than that. One that could have formed into love if they had more time. I was kind of mad that they had to encounter so many obstacles on their last hours, but when I look back on the book as whole, those obstacles were needed.

At the end of the book I knew by the title that something tragic was going to happen and my emotions were going to be all over the place. But I was not prepared! My heart was shattered and is still shattered in a million pieces and I am still NOT okay 😭😭

This was my first Adam Silvera read, and I was not disappointed!

Until next time, until the next book.

Children of Blood and Bone

I just finished this amazing book and I’ve been crying for the past hour. I don’t even know where to start. This book…this book has been something I have been waiting on since I heard @tadeyemibooks was working on bringing to the world. As soon as it was available to order, it was the first thing I did. To hold in my hands the hard work of an author so passionate about her craft, literally made me cry. The way this story unfolded was beautiful, the way this story ended was beautiful. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at Sarans evil ass, and I held this book to my chest every night. Tomi created something amazing, something breathtaking and I am honored and blessed to have been able to experience this work of art. Thank you Tomi! I cannot wait for book 2 and the movie to come out.

I am not going to spoil this for you all, because it is something you have to experience. But if you loved Black Panther, you will adore this book. And there’s magic, what is there NOT to love. If you decide to read it, please tell me your thoughts!

Until next time, until the next book

The Field of Prey

This is the first book of John Sandford’s that I have ever read. And it was not a disappointment. The plot alone was deep enough to get lost in. Every chapter left me wanting more. Reading from Davenports perspective and the switch between the killers perspective added such a good touch to the story. Finishing this book literally had me clutching my chest. Like what is life???!!!  John Sandford is such an amazing writer. I’m still not over this book and I finished this about a week ago. Such a good read! I enjoyed this book so much, I started reading the Davenport series. I just finished The Gathering Prey so that will be the next entry.

If you like crime centered books, than I recommend you give John Sandfords work a chance.

Until next time, until the next book…
