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.

 🍀 Hi, my beautiful bookish friends!!, I hope you’re having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying all your readings. 💕 Today I bring you what would basically be my top 5 of those books that I’m most excited about and I want to read before the end of the year. I didn’t know how to put all my feelings in a title so this is more or less what I came up with lol.
We all know that our TBRs are basically an infinite stack of one million books that we intend to read luckily throughout our lives and sometimes can get a little out of control. Well, I’m trying to start prioritizing certain books and being a bit more organized. I think sometimes, and I guess this happens to all of us, I usually get very distracted by new releases and ARCs, and all those things, and then you forget a little about those books that you already have at your disposal to read or that you mentioned that you died for reading like yesterday, so well,  💫 I’m trying to control myself and try to follow a series of lists where I’ll prioritize 5 books to read for a certain period of time. This is a simple idea that I’m trying to follow and see if I can really read those books that I say I’ll read, and not just forget them completely every time a new one appears in front of me. 💫  All this sounds as if I had all under control, but no guys, don’t be fooled. 😂
In this particular top, I’ll mention 5 books that I’m dying to read before the end of the year and, for a change, I’ll really try to actually read them over the next few months. If I achieve that, then I’ll be very proud of myself, for sure, and I’ll also continue making these types of lists to prioritize certain readings and also to talk a little with you about this books, I would love to know what you think of them. 😍 
I always think that everything sounds better explained in my mind, but I hope you have understood what I’m trying to do, I promise to do my best. I’ll read these 5 books and review them for you this year, it’s a fact, I’m doing it!!! 👏🏻  
You have to tell me in the comments what is your top 5 priorities before the end of the year, I would love to know your list. And now, without further ado let’s start! 🍀 Continue reading

Book Review || The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

 💫 Hi guys, I’M BACK!! and I hope you’re having a wonderful day, enjoying your readings 💞
I know I’ve been absent in the past few days, but I felt that I needed to relax and be alone with myself until I felt better. I feel much better today, I haven’t gotten a job yet, but I’ve been sending and taking my resume everywhere and most people have been very kind so I have faith that everything will be solved soon. My boyfriend is a wonderful being who has been holding me as well as my family, I really don’t know what I would do without them, but they weren’t the only ones who were and are there for me, but also I have YOU and these days I have realized how much you mean to me and the huge impact you have on my life. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the beautiful messages and comments of love, encouragement, and support that I’ve received in these difficult days. I feel that every time I read a comment it fills me with a beautiful force that helps me move on and believe in myself. I don’t know what I’d do without you, I LOVE YOU, today and forever. Creating this blog has been one of my smartest decisions I swear, it’s my escape, my passion, and my safe place. 😊 
So, I’ll continue posting frequently as always, because honestly, I miss a lot when I don’t do it and later if something happens, I’ll keep you informed. THANK YOU SO MUCH, guys, I feel like the luckiest person in the world, I’m blessed you’re there for me 😭 ❤️  💫

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles’ mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.

Try a Chapter (Cleaning my TBR) || Part 1 || 💫

 💫 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a BEAUTIFUL day. 💕 Today I bring you something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, but I haven’t had enough time for it until today. I think we all know what this type of book tags is about, but just in case I’ll explain a little. The “Try a Chapter” Book Tag is about taking those books that you’re not sure about, you don’t know if you really want to keep them or let go, and then read the first chapter of each one to finally make a decision. I’d already made one last year, but I try the first chapters of the oldest books on my TBR, if you want to check it I’ll leave it in HERE!. 😊 

Today I bring you the same tag, but with a different twist, as you know I’ve been cleaning my TBR using the book meme: “Down the TBR Hole” and it has honestly helped me a lot, especially since there were books that I didn’t even remember adding and this somehow helps me to be more organized and in this way I let more than 50 books go, which is great. I’ve also reached 21 posts, which are really A LOT of books.

So, what does all this have to do with the book tag, right? Well, I was thinking that it would be a good idea to try the first chapters of those books that despite I keep on my TBR, either because I heard good things about them or because the synopsis was interesting to me, I’m still not sure if I want to read them. There’s a small percentage of the books I “KEEP” on my TBR, of which I still have my doubts about, so I thought it would be fun to start a new post series where I’ll be trying the first chapter of 5 books every 5 “Down the TBR Hole” posts. This means that for every 5 posts I make, I’ll be choosing 5 books of which I’m still not 100% sure and try a chapter of each one to finally decide what to do with them. I also own these books already, of course,  in electronic formats.
I hope you understand what I try to do, anyway once it starts it will be better. 😄 

I’m super excited to show you the first 5 books that I’ll be trying a chapter today, so without further ado let’s start!!❤️ 
I hope you have fun with this and that if you’re interested in any of them or have already read them, let me know everything in the comments! 💫 Continue reading
