This Saturday is the YASHOT literature festival. YAShot is a one-day festival based in Uxbridge (London). Featuring around 70 authors, the day is a mix of signings, panels, workshops, and ‘in conversation’ sessions. It’s a packed and full day!
There are of course many great authors attending with many great books, a fair few of which I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Today I thought I’d select three books that I’ve not yet had the chance to read, but can’t wait to do so!
Yesterday I highlighted 3 books I have read!
Links will take you to the book’s Goodreads page.
Unfortunately, Joshua Khan can not attend this weekend, but this tweet means I get to include this first selection! (and have an excuse to read it on the train down!)

But where do you start looking for a couple who seem to have been reincarnated at every key moment in history? Who were Kate and Matt? Why were they born again and again? And who is the mysterious Ella, who keeps appearing at every turn in Clove’s investigation?
For Clove, there is a mystery to solve in the past and a love to find in the future.
Everyone said the Graces were witches.
They moved through the corridors like sleek fish, ripples in their wake. Stares followed their backs and their hair.
They had friends, but they were just distractions. They were waiting for someone different.
All I had to do was show them that person was me.
Like everyone else in her town, River is obsessed with the Graces, attracted by their glamour and apparent ability to weave magic. But are they really what they seem? And are they more dangerous than they let on?
