Lauren and 7 other people liked Erika Robuck's review of Daisy Jones & The Six:
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
"DJ & the Six is a book that lives up to the hype.

Told "rock-umentary" style, the novel details the meteoric rise and devastating fall of a fictional iconic rock band of the 1970s. Sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll, and the inevitable w..." Read more of this review »
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
"I was hesitant to read a book theoretically about books but I ended up loving the character of Nina from the very beginning. Reading about her life made me feel a lot like being at home and the drama of a sudden new family kept me wanting more."

Fredrik Backman
“The love a parent feels for a child is strange. There is a starting point to our love for everyone else, but not this person. This one we have always loved, we loved them before they even existed. No matter how well prepared they are, all moms and dads experience a moment of total shock, when the tidal wave of feelings first washed through them, knocking them off their feet. It's incomprehensible because there's nothing to compare it to. It's like trying to describe sand between your toes or snowflakes on your tongue to someone who's lived their whole life in a dark room. It sends the soul flying.”
Fredrik Backman, Beartown

Sophie Kinsella
“Every time you see someone's bright-and-shiny, remember: They have their own crappy truths too. Of course they do. And every time you see your own crappy truth and feel despair and think, 'Is this my life?', remember: It's not. Everyone's got a bright-and-shiny, even if it's hard to find sometimes.”
Sophie Kinsella, My Not So Perfect Life

Fredrik Backman
“Bitterness can be corrosive. It can rewrite your memories as if it were scrubbing a crime scene clean, until in the end you only remember what suits you of its causes.”
Fredrik Backman, Beartown

Fredrik Backman
“Ove had never been asked how he lived before he met her. But if anyone had asked him, he would have answered that he didn’t.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

Fredrik Backman
“To love someone is like moving into a house," Sonja used to say. "At first you fall in love in everything new, you wonder every morning that this is one's own, as if they are afraid that someone will suddenly come tumbling through the door and say that there has been a serious mistake and that it simply was not meant to would live so fine. But as the years go by, the facade worn, the wood cracks here and there, and you start to love this house not so much for all the ways it is perfect in that for all the ways it is not. You become familiar with all its nooks and crannies. How to avoid that the key gets stuck in the lock if it is cold outside. Which floorboards have some give when you step on them, and exactly how to open the doors for them not to creak. That's it, all the little secrets that make it your home.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove
