Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

 

I'm loving this book, I know it's fictional but it is loosely based on Fleetwood Mac of which I'm a huge fan. It's such an intricate storyline and the way she sets it up is great it's just the little comments that you don't pick up on until later in the story. She really develops each character and it's hilarious how we don't see ourselves but looking at things objectively you can tell where it's headed. It's written like a documentary / autobiography even though it's fiction too which I thought was a great novel way to tell a story. (probably helps that though untalented music is a huge part of my life).

 

84 Charing's Cross Road / The Duchess of Bloomsbury by Helene Hanff. 

 

I'm from the UK and had heard good reviews about this book, I've just started the second half. It's a nice little story the kind you couldn't make up but I'm not blown away as yet. It's just another persons story no doubt she has her own unique personality but ....

I did enjoy looking up photos on google though either of the places in question or people mentioned. Its nice to think it really happened and even that I've been to the places mentioned in London. 

(84 Charings Cross closed as Marks + Co (the bookshop in the novel) I believe it was then turned into an independent restaurant, knocked through with neighbouring shops to form pizza hut and is now a McDonalds! It's actually on the corner opposite The Vic? theatre where Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is on at). 

 

 

(P.s. I really need to stop buying books before I've finished the ones I already own!)

In control: dangerous relationships and how they end in murder by Jane Monckton smith. Great read, goes through the stages involved in escalation of control written by someone with lots of experience in the police and research.

Before this I read a mother’s reckoning by sue klebold, mother of dylan involved in the columbine incident. That was one hell of a read, couldn’t put it down and it gave me goosebumps.

I did not know that about Daisy! I thought it was fiction, but 100% reads as non-fiction I was shocked the whole way through that it wasn't real and sad I couldn't listen to their music! Have you read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by the same author?? Absolutely iconic.

 

CR: The Gilded Ones by Namina Forma, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo and Me by Elton John (its his biography, idek know why, I know almost nothing about him lol).

I know I couldn't believe she came up with such an intricate but believable storyline. I think the idea / inspiration came from Fleetwood Mac, you can spot a few similarities but on the whole it's a different story.

I feel you even though the lyrics are there I can't hear the melody and I'm so annoyed because I think they'd make great songs. I'm secretly hoping netflix et.al make a series of it one day just so I can hear  :rolleyes:  

 

No I haven't but I've heard a lot of people recommend it, it's on my to be read. 

 

P.S Oooo... I might try Eltons Biography I watched the Rocketman movie when that was released.
