Happy Friday everyone. I hope those of you who were celebrating Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful day and you’re all keeping your eyes peeled for those Black Friday bargains today! Personally, I’m checking out the Kindle accessories……
I am delighted to welcome a blogger to damppebbles who I suggest you follow RIGHT NOW, HC Newton of The Irresponsible Reader. I discovered HC’s blog earlier this year and I absolutely love it. Honestly, give him a follow. You won’t regret it.
#R3COMM3ND3D2018 is a chance for bookish folk to share the book love and shout about three books they think the rest of us should read. Any three books, any three genres but there’s a catch! All three books must have been published in 2018.
Here are HC’s choices…
Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek & Dave Philpott
It’s funny, great concept, erudite and silly in the same breath — completely unique.
Everything is Normal by Sergey Grechishkin
This memoir isn’t perfect — but it’s a surprisingly fun look at life in Soviet Russian in the 80s. Even in the dystopia it was — his childhood had fun and wonder, but Grechishkin is honest about the struggles and pain.
Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne
It’s an entertaining spoof of fantasy tropes and cliches while telling a pretty solid fantasy story as well.
Thanks for your choices, HC. I’ve only heard of one of them and that’s Dear Mr Pop Star which was all over the blogosphere for a time. I’m really intrigued by it and will be adding it to my wishlist.
If HC has managed to tempt you, or if you would like to find out more about the books he recommends then please see the following links:
Just some guy who reads a lot.
#R3COMM3ND3D is full for this year but make sure you check back tomorrow when I will be welcoming another awesome blogger to share their #R3COMM3ND3D2018!
