Favorite Line Fridays: First Summer Read

“All I will say is that you show up for your friends on their hardest days. And you hold their hand through the roughest parts. Life is about who is holding your hand and, I think, whose hand you commit to holding.” – Taylor Jenkins Reid, DAISY JONES & THE SIX

and this…

“I think you have to have faith in people before they earn it. Otherwise, it’s not faith, right?” – Taylor Jenkins Reid, DAISY JONES & THE SIX

Technically, I read this before the summer started, but I can’t think of a better book to take to the beach or pool or wherever you like. The style is original. The writing is strong. The characters are compelling.

However, I will caution those who don’t want to read about 1970’s era musicians and their antics, this book is not for you. (Note:  There have been many assumptions about who may have inspired some of these characters with Stevie Nicks being the most obvious, but there are so many to choose from – it’s a fun game!)

So, for those who love music and/or a great story, I say pick this up.  Grab your towel and sunscreen and enjoy!

P.S. I loved this book enough to go back and read another by Taylor Jenkins Reid – THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO.
