#R3COMM3ND3D2018 with #BookBlogger Nicki Murphy (@nickijmurphy1) #NickisBookBlog

Thank Crunchie it’s Friday!  I hope you’ve all had a good week and that your weekend involves lots of R&R, by which I mean ‘reading’ and ‘reading’!  I am delighted to welcome you to the blog today and to another #R3COMM3ND3D2018.  Joining me today is the lovely Nicki Murphy of the brilliant Nicki’s Book Blog.  We’ll find out in a tick which three books Nicki has chosen but first let me explain what #R3COMM3ND3D2018 is…

#R3COMM3ND3D2018 (where have you been for the last week?!) is where I invite the best kind of people, book people, to shout about three must read titles.  They can be from any genre, written by any author and published by any means.  There’s only one stipulation and that is that the books must have been published this year, in 2018.

Here are Nicki’s choices…

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
Stunning, compelling, educational. A read never to be forgotten.

Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon
A book that made me smile, cry and reflect all at the same time- which takes some doing.

They Don’t Know by Patricia Dixon
If you want to restore your faith in human nature then this is one of the books you should perhaps read. It takes you away to a wonderful place in your mind- a relaxing read to sink into whilst getting to know these characters that come alive on the page. Stunningly written this will be one of my books of the year. I fell in love with the characters, I enjoyed the plot and I really didn’t want it to end. A book I will remember for a very long time.

Great choices Nicki, thank you.  My dad, who only ever reads legal thrillers, recently read The Tattooist of Auschwitz. I have never seen him so emotional or engaged about a book before.  He was completely taken aback by it and his passion made me add it to my wishlist.

  1. It’s odd, I think I am one of the only people who doesn’t rave about the Tattooist of Auschwitz. I thought it was an amazing and emotional story told with a complete lack of emotion by the author. Just an example of how we are all different, I guess!
