I am thrilled to welcome another of my very favourite bloggers to damppebbles today, the very lovely Rachel Emms of Chillers Killers and Thrillers. Let’s face it, if I were setting up my blog all over again then I would want to call it Chillers Killers and Thrillers! I’ve always been a little bit smitten with Rachel’s blog (and the name of it!). Rachel has kindly agreed to share her #R3COMM3ND3D2017 reads with us today.
#R3COMM3ND3D2017 is a chance for book bloggers and authors to share three of their favourite books with the rest of us. The only requirement being, the books must have published in 2017.
Here’s what Rachel chose…
Quieter Than Killing by Sarah Hilary (DI Marnie Rome #4)
It has everything you can want from a gritty police procedural; surprising twists and shocking truths, a compelling plot and a fantastic cast of characters who you can get under your skin in a number of ways. A brilliant story from the DI Marnie Rome Series.
The One by John Marrs
I just loved every minute of this book which had me literally gasping out loud with the many surprises and twists I couldn’t keep up with. The author expertly weaved five different point of view characters while still keeping a tight plot. I’m still not sure whose story was the most disturbing which made it all the better.
Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski
This novel just packs a punch and is such an original and refreshing read, where the story is told in a series of Podcasts which allows the reader to come to their own conclusions about what exactly happened with this crime.
Fabulous recommendations, thank you so much Rachel. I am SO HAPPY to see ‘Six Stories’ appear on your list. I have so much love for this book and it’s predecessor, ‘Hydra’. Both brilliant books.

I’m Rachel, a twenty-seven year old lover of books. And when I say I love them, I mean I obsess about them so much that I literally start dreaming about them.
I absolutely adore immersing myself in stories, for me reading is a type of escapism which transports you into another world with characters who you like, hate, or just generally get frustrated at. A story is full of emotion; makes you laugh, cry and is just pure entertainment, which is one of the reasons why I would love to write and publish my own stories one day.
