Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
I'm loving this book, I know it's fictional but it is loosely based on Fleetwood Mac of which I'm a huge fan. It's such an intricate storyline and the way she sets it up is great it's just the little comments that you don't pick up on until later in the story. She really develops each character and it's hilarious how we don't see ourselves but looking at things objectively you can tell where it's headed. It's written like a documentary / autobiography even though it's fiction too which I thought was a great novel way to tell a story. (probably helps that though untalented music is a huge part of my life).
84 Charing's Cross Road / The Duchess of Bloomsbury by Helene Hanff.
I'm from the UK and had heard good reviews about this book, I've just started the second half. It's a nice little story the kind you couldn't make up but I'm not blown away as yet. It's just another persons story no doubt she has her own unique personality but ....
I did enjoy looking up photos on google though either of the places in question or people mentioned. Its nice to think it really happened and even that I've been to the places mentioned in London.
(84 Charings Cross closed as Marks + Co (the bookshop in the novel) I believe it was then turned into an independent restaurant, knocked through with neighbouring shops to form pizza hut and is now a McDonalds! It's actually on the corner opposite The Vic? theatre where Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is on at).
(P.s. I really need to stop buying books before I've finished the ones I already own!)

Stereotypes have their place but life is a Spectrum and if you don't see that you miss out on so many of the colours.
