#R3COMM3ND3D2017 with #BookBlogger Sarah Hardy (@sarahhardy681) #ByTheLetterBookReviews

**WordPress seems to be testing me at the moment, seeing if it can catch me out.  I don’t think Sarah’s #R3COMM3ND3D2017 posted properly first thing this morning.  I’ve tried to republish it but it’s still playing silly monkeys and not appearing where it should!  As a result, I have decided to copy and paste the original text to a brand new post where it will hopefully stay.  My apologies to Sarah for the muddle.  But lucky people, you get two doses of the gorgeous Sarah Hardy**

Today it’s my pleasure to welcome another absolutely awesome book blogger to damppebbles.  Sarah Hardy is the lady behind the mighty ByTheLetterBookReviews, another of my favourite book blogs.

Sarah joins me today to share her #R3COMM3ND3D2017.  #R3COMM3ND3D2017 is my new feature which I plan to run until the end of the year (or longer if people want to take part).  I’m asking all book bloggers and authors to come up with three MUST READ books.  The only stipulation is that the books must have been published in 2017.  There are no other rules and participants are free to choose books from any genre, providing they were published in 2017.

Here are Sarah’s recommendations…

The Abattoir of Dreams by Mark Tilbury
This was the third book I had read by the author and his first stand alone. From the beginning of the story I wasn’t sure what to expect but the further I got into it the more involved and emotional I got. I love it when a book stays with so you for ages after you have read it, which is what this one did.


The Kindred Killers by Graham Smith (JakeBoulder #2)
I had really enjoyed the first book in the series but boy did this one blow me away. The storyline is a very dark one which is sadly very much going on in todays world which in a way gave the story even more of a darker edge to it. This was one of those reads that I seriously could not put down and had me gripped throughout.


Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse
This was just a brilliant book. A female serial killer. What’s not to love! Getting into her head was wonderful yet scary as hell but I absolutely loved every minute of it. If you love a seriously sick and twisted read then you have to read this book.


Thanks a million, Sarah, these are great recommendations.  I have The Abattoir of Dreams on my TBR and I’ve already mentioned in a previous how much I love the Jake Boulder series by Graham Smith.  As for Sweetpea, I am desperate to read it but it was the first book I was declined for on NetGalley.  Bittersweet (geddit?) memories!
