Welcome Back to You’re Booked


We know it’s been a little while, and we hope all our patient readers are well. It’s been a busy few months here at HIF headquarters, but we’re ready to return and talk all things literature again.

So You’re Booked is back, and we’ve got a jam-packed calendar!

Our Book of the Month series is making its grand return in May, and there are some great picks heading your way. Not to give too much away, but we’re heading to Iceland for our first choice with a Nordic crime thriller you won’t want to miss.

When we haven’t been reading, we’ve been chatting with some amazing writers and we can’t wait to share those interviews with you all. Get ready to hear all about their writing quirks and routines, as well as their biggest pieces of advice for any aspiring writers out there.

And of course, there’s the return of the iconic #shelfie series, where we sneak a peak at the shelves of some of our favourite authors for some bookshelf inspiration.

Looking for some reading recommendations? We’ve got some excellent picks for readers of all tastes coming up, so make sure you’re ready with a pen and paper because you’re going to want to make a note of these!

There’s also a brand new team here at HIF that we want to introduce you to, and what better way to get to know a new team than through their book recommendations? Come back next week to find out what our team have been reading recently.

And finally, we’re working hard behind the scenes organising this year’s Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, which is happening from the 21st to 24th July at the iconic Old Swan Hotel here in Harrogate. The programme for this year’s festivals is going to be released at the end of April and we can’t wait for you to see it – keep your eye on our website and your inbox for the big announcement.

So all of this is to say, stay tuned because there’s a lot coming your way!
