You’re Booked

Hosted ByDaisy Buchanan

Welcome to You’re Booked, the podcast for literary nosy parkers who would like the chance to snoop around their favourite authors’ bookshelves.

I’m Daisy Buchanan, your Book Inspector, and I’ll be asking our guests all about the first forbidden books they read under the covers, the beloved books they have borrowed, and never given back, and those impressive heavyweight hardbacks that make them look like intellectual giants – even though they couldn’t get beyond the first twenty pages.

We’ll also be talking about what makes readers into writers, how our guests became book lovers and their favourite reading memories, all with a dash of intelligence and a dollop of irreverence. Our guests include Dolly Alderton, Nina Stibbe, Nikesh Shukla, and many more favourites from our own bookshelves.

BONUS: Daisy Buchanan on Literary Sisters and The Sisterhood

Daisy has a new book out! The Sisterhood: A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Meis out right now. As Daisy states: ‘My five sisters are the only women I would ever kill for. And they are the only women I have ever wanted to kill.’ It’s a tender, feisty memoir that explores family relationships, female friendship and the intimacy and clashes that occur between women, viewed through the lens of her own relationship with her five younger sisters, as they move from girlhood to adulthood. In this special bonus episode, Daisy talks about her inspiration for writing the book and also reveals her favourite books that feature sisters.
