Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I loved this book! Erotic, haunting, original - it wrapped me up in a gorgeous and seductive spell. It reminded me of Donna Tartt's The Secret History, but with the eroticism amped up to nuclear level

“This is why it’s perilous to ignore a librarian.”
Jeffe Kennedy, The Mark of the Tala

“Something in us recognizes magic when we encounter it. Whether we believe in it consciously or not. It affects us and the choices we make.”
Jeffe Kennedy, Master of the Opera Act 1: Passionate Overture

“Believe me, I know. I used to think that it only happened once, your single opportunity to make good. But now I think - no, know - that love is abundant. That's Glorianna's gift to us. That we love, over and over, many times and many people. You're one of them. I love you, Ash."
He crossed to me, tentative, and lifted his hands to cup my naked breasts. "Your tits are so much larger,"he commented.”
Jeffe Kennedy, The Tears of the Rose
