#R3COMM3ND3D2018 with #BookBlogger Norrie (@norrie_reads) #ReadingUndertheBlankie #damppebbles

Hello! Welcome to damppebbles and another brilliant #R3COMM3ND3D2018 post. I’m back sharing the book love after a brief break to celebrate anniversaries (10 years!) and birthdays (not going to disclose the years on that one πŸ˜‰). Today I am delighted to welcome the ever so lovely Norrie of Reading Under the Blankie to share her #R3COMM3ND3D2018 picks. If you haven’t discovered Norrie’s blog yet then what are you waiting for? 😍

‘What is this #R3COMM3ND3D thing you speak of?’ I hear you cry! Well, it’s about the book love and sharing three books you think everyone else should read.  Any author, any genre, any publisher…but with one catch. The books must have been published in the same year.  At the moment we’re sharing the 2018 book love but come 1st November it will be all about 2019.  If you’re a book blogger, author or publisher and would like to take part in #R3COMM3ND3D2019 then please scroll to the bottom of this post and fill in the Google form.

Without further ado, here are Norrie’s choices…

The Retreat by Mark Edwards
When it comes to suspense, Mark Edwards is one of my go-to guys. He just gets it, you know, like he can see into your soul.

and so it begins

And So It Begins by Rachel Abbott
This is such a cleverly plotted, delicious thriller! Part courtroom drama, part murder mystery, this will appeal for a wide range of crime fiction fans.


Tangerine by Christine Mangan
Set in 1950s Morocco, Christine Mangan’s debut is an unnerving story of obsession, deception and some serious gaslighting. Also a great spin on frenemies!

Thanks so much, Norrie. I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed The Retreat by Mark Edwards and I’m adding your other two choices to my wishlist!

About Norrie:
Book lover, cat hugger, coffee drinker, capable of eating half a cheesecake in one sitting. Best not to approach before she had her breakfast.

Loves a good thriller, but would probably not touch romance with a stick. Based on the amount of crime fiction she’s read, could probably solve a crime. Or not, but she would certainly try. Loves science fiction and secretly dreams about joining the Starfleet since she was fourteen.
