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.

Lovely podcast BUT

I love listening to this podcast, it’s great for book recommendations and it’s generally a comforting listen but Daisy’s constant reactionary ‘mmm’ing is borderline unbearable. Sometimes it actually makes me jump

Words by Sabine ,

Absolutely love Daisy’s Podcast!

I am a bit of a Podcast Junkie and mainly listen to the genre of Personal Development and podcasts aimed at Mums & Parenting.

Daisy and her guests have reignited my love of reading and all things literacy, which had taken a bit of a back seat throughout my twenties. I was an avid reader as a child and each of Daisy’s episodes and fascinating guests lights me up and has given me some inspiration to explore new genres.

Current favourite podcast

Poorna Bell’s episode has been my favourite yet! Also you have the best podcast jingle of any I listen to.
