Easter Sunday: My TBR Has Risen

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great Easter Sunday so far, if you celebrate. If not, hey! Hope Sunday is going well for you!

I’ve been on a short-ish break because I recently went back home to California for a week, but I’m back in Canada and rushing to finish my novel. (Updates on that soon).

On top of that, I’m in a reading slump! *cheers ensue* I haven’t picked up a single book in the month of April. I’ve started two earlier in the month and on my plane rides back home, but haven’t finished anything. I know. Kinda hard to be a book blogger and booktuber when you aren’t doing any reading… Trust me, the struggle is real.

In the meantime,

I have two videos up on my YouTube channel that I haven’t talked about on this blog yet.

Today’s post was supposed to be a review but for technical reasons (darn technology) we couldn’t figure out why my kindle wasn’t letting me receive a copy for review. HOWEVER, I went ahead and purchased a copy! I’m a little more than halfway through the book now (this is what happens when you start the book before bed and all of a sudden it’s 3am…)

But that will not stop me from promoting and discussing this book in a semi-review style! More of a, in-progress-review. Let’s dive in! And keep reading for an excerpt!

Goodreads Summary:

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their 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.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band 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 that 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.

Goodreads Summary:

For a man who makes his living pleasuring women, what happens when the only pay-out worth having is love? 

Faith Abigail Charles has always done the right thing. So when her mother runs for mayor of New Orleans, Faith puts her law career on hold to help her win. But when tensions run high, Faith trades one kind of heat for another—in the arms of a hard-bodied stranger. He’s everything a woman dreams of in a lover. So much so that her one-night stand turns into two, then three, then four . . .

For Aiden Rios, meeting smart, sexy Faith feels like fate. After being ditched by his client in the Big Easy, the high-paid male escort needs a little company himself. Aiden knows he’ll have to come clean about his line of work, and he plans to—right after another taste of Faith’s sweetness—and another and another. . . . Until a chance meeting with his client leaves Aiden exposed—and Faith shocked and hurt. Now the hired hottie must show Faith that the love they share is bigger than the scandal threatening to destroy them . . .
