It is my pleasure to welcome another great book blogger to damppebbles today, Juliet Butler of the brilliant Bookliterati. Juliet has very kindly agreed to share her three #R3COMM3ND3D2017 choices with us.
#R3COMM3ND3D2017 is an opportunity for book bloggers and authors to share the book love. All I ask is that the three books chosen must have been published this year, in 2017. That’s the only stipulation. Pretty easy, right?!
Here are Juliet’s choices…
In The Name of the Family by Sarah Dunant
Sarah Dunant brings Renaissance Italy to life with her vivid descriptions of both people and places. This is a novel of the infamous Borgia Family so is full of intrigue, Secrets, corruption and murder. It is because of Sarah Dunant that I finally made the decision to start my degree in Art History.
A Column of Fire by Ken Follett (The Kingsbridge Novels)
I thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books in the Kingsbridge Trilogy so was very excited to read this book. It is full of historical detail and covers a turbulent period in British history. Full of fact and fiction, it is historical fiction at its best.
The Pearl Sister by Lucinda Riley (The Seven Sisters #4)
This is the fourth book in The Seven Sisters series of books, and for me it is the best so far. Beautifully written, with attention to detail, Lucinda brings her characters to life, and conveys the desolate red dust of the Australian outback so well, you can almost feel the heat. This is my favourite series at the moment.
Thanks so much for joining me today Juliet with your brilliant recommendations. If Juliet has managed to convince you, or if you would like to find out more about the books she recommends, please see the following amazon.co.uk links:
I started blogging eighteen months ago to help give me purpose to life as I suffer from spondylosis and depression. My favourite genre is good historical fiction but I also love crime, thrillers, literary fiction and contemporary fiction. I live in Whitley Bay with my husband, daughter who is still at home at 24 and my three wonderful cocker spaniels.
My thanks to Juliet for joining me today. Check back in tomorrow when I am joined by one of my very favourite people, the gorgeous Kate Noble of The Quiet Knitter.
