It is my great pleasure to welcome the ever so lovely Becca Burnton of If Only I Could Read Faster to damppebbles today. Becca has kindly agreed to hop over to damppebbles HQ and share her three #R3COMM3ND3D2017 reads.
#R3COMM3ND3D2017 is an opportunity for book bloggers and authors to share the book love. An opportunity to shout about three MUST READ books. The only stipulation being, the books must have been published in 2017.
Here are Becca’s picks…
Dangerous Crossing by Rachel Rhys
I absolutely loved reading this book. It is actually the first historical fiction book that I have read having been convinced that I wouldn’t enjoy the genre. But I had decided that I needed to try and see if I really wouldn’t like the genre and I knew that this was the book to read as it had had so many amazing reviews. And now I know why! This book read so well and I could really feel the story, smell the smells and, well I just loved every page of it.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
This book has had a lot of hype but I read it before that started. At first I wasn’t sure about it, the main character sure has a strange way of talking for a start, but I soon got used to it and began to care really quite deeply about her. This book was wonderful, really well written and Eleanor is such a special character that will have a place in my heart for a long time to come.
Broken Bones by Angela Marsons (Detective Kim Stone #7)
If you have read any of the Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons then you are really missing out. Broken Bones is the seventh book in the series, but not one of those books has been anything less than brilliant, but this one might be the best one yet. I loved reading it, the storyline was great and I really feel like I know the characters now. Marsons is a fabulous author with a real talent and I can’t wait for book eight!
Thanks for your super recommendations, Becca. Glad to see a few familiar faces here (and yes, I still need to get myself a copy of ‘Dangerous Crossing’). As for the Kim Stone series, I’m in catch up mode at the moment. Love the Kim Stone series so much.
If Becca has managed to tempt you, or if you would like to find out more about the books she recommends then please see the following amazon.co.uk links:

My thanks to Becca for joining me today. Pop by the blog again tomorrow when I will be welcoming Rachel Emms of Chillers Killers and Thrillers with her #R3COMM3ND3D2017 reads.
