    no, I'm kidding. I'm willing to try. I can already tell it's out of my comfort zone but if pushing the limits ain't living then what is :disco:

    it's provided I can get a copy through the library though. books are crazy expensive in Denmark

    the reviews on goodreads with lines like

    I AM SO EMOTIONAL

    I will never stop crying

    I'm afraid to read this book

    have indeed piqued my interest :D

    I mean we don't HAVE to go for that one. I only spent 5 minutes in Waterstones and this one seemed quite 'Moopy' in theme. I think it seems to be in the style of one of those documentaries - and is laid out a bit like a script. It's only just out so if we do decide to go for it, it might be better when it's been out for a while and is cheaper...

    In fairness that's probably cheaper than most full price hardback, which are usually more like £20. But yes, books are cheaper here than most places generally, I believe.

    Ok so this is the official thread for this month's book, chosen by me, after I was nominated by @Mats. No strict deadline, but I don't think it will take too long to read, shall we say April 30? We can start discussing it then.

    It's just under £9 on Amazon,
    or £9 in Asda (thanks @jivafox)

    Or also try your local library, I am a massive supporter of those!

    Do you think we could get ASDA to sponsor our bookclub? We could be the ASDA Book Club, like Oprah's Book Club but slightly smellier.

    You could always download a copy from mobilism.org for free. Depending on your views on internet piracy ‍☠️

    I am lowkey...loving this?

    It reminds me of Jackie Collins. Obviously with much less :disco: and trash, but I can’t see to put it down.

    I'm still only halfway through The Little Friend but will be starting on this as soon as I finish it. I doubt I'll have this done & dusted by the end of the month though :(

    very kind of you, @jivafox, but gracious Kala has already helped me out

    although I bet your cigarette and wine infused copy would only add to the Daisy Jones experience :disco:

    I'm about a third of the way into this. I decided to go with the audiobook option and it actually works really well given the conversational / interview / 'rockumentary' style of it. Did they actually hire Stevie Nicks to do Daisy's voice? :D

    So far it's lightweight froth but rather enjoyable. Think Fleetwood Mac True Hollywood Story meets A Star is Born but hey ho, it touches the zeitgeist I guess. But I do want to know what happens so in that sense it is unputdownable ....
