Hello and welcome to damppebbles. More importantly, welcome to the #R3COMM3ND3D2018 after show party! Now, this post is a couple of days later than planned. But hey, all the best parties don’t go quite to plan – right?
And not going to plan is EXACTLY what #R3COMM3ND3D2018 did. Following my very best intentions to post your brilliant 2018 recommendations during November and December last year, I unfortunately fell ill and pretty much stopped blogging for a few months. But you can’t keep a good book recommendation down (nor a determined blogger!) and earlier this year, in the Spring, I restarted the series and posted all of the outstanding posts.
I have LOVED sharing your 2018 recommendations, and I hope you have enjoyed seeing which books have been chosen – and of course, the all-important WHY! If #R3COMM3ND3D2018 has managed to add only one book to your TBR then we’re doing a stonking job.
So, without further ado, here are the #R3COMM3ND3D2018 titles in all their glory…
Aren’t they beautiful?! If you took part in #R3COMM3ND3D2018 and the book(s) you chose aren’t here then please get in touch.
But what of the winners? Which books were recommended the most? I can’t quite believe it myself but there were SIX books which tied for first place. All six books had FOUR votes each which is amazing!
Here they are…
How many have you read? I’ve read three of the six and thoroughly enjoyed them. They’re all very worthy winners.
Which leads us to this year. Who will come out on top? #R3COMM3ND3D2019 starts this Friday on 1st November (eek!) and runs every day until the end of December (except 24th, 25th, 26th and 31st December). Make sure you have your say by filling in the form below and casting your vote for the top books of 2019.
The biggest thanks to all of the book bloggers and authors who took part in #R3COMM3ND3D2018 and whittled their favourite reads down to three (an impossible task, I know!). Huge thanks for all the shares, likes, tweets and retweets – you make #R3COMM3ND3D such a fun feature to run ❤️.
