And, the winner of the RAK is #25 - scrappinmom99!
This month, we’re going to focus on a book that has been on several bestseller lists, and which proved to be different from anything else I’ve ever read: Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This book follows the fictional 1970s rock band, Daisy Jones and the Six, from their roots, through their rise to super-stardom, and ultimately to their mysterious break up in the midst of a tour for their album, Aurora, the biggest selling rock album of any band, up to that point. What sets this book apart, however, is the way in which it is told. It is presented like a Behind the Music documentary, featuring interviews with all the band members, managers, friends, and anyone else who was involved in the band’s meteoric rise, all curated by a nameless author/narrator. It is an interesting take on music, art, and the price of fame, and what happens when the lines begin to blur between what is performance and what is not.
(I listened to the audiobook for this one, as it came highly recommended. It was performed by a cast, and I feel like that presentation of it really brought the characters to life. I believe I liked it better as an audiobook than I might have liked it had I read it in the traditional manner.)
OPTION 1: Song Title to Page Title
For the book, Taylor Jenkins Reid created an entire album’s worth of songs, complete with lyrics, to comprise the band’s seminal album, Aurora. The track listing for Aurora is below, so for Option 1, choose one of the song titles and use it as the title for your page:
