Happy Sunday book fans! Welcome to damppebbles and to day three of #R3COMM3ND3D. I hope you’re enjoying the recommendations so far. I certainly am! Today I am delighted to welcome another brilliant book blogger to damppebbles – the very lovely Kate at Portable Magic. If you haven’t discovered Kate’s fabulous blog yet then make sure you check it out and hit the subscribe button whilst you’re there!
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2019? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors and book bloggers to shout about three (yes, *only* three) books they love. They can be written by any author, in any genre and published in any way (traditionally, indie press or self-published). But there is a catch. All three books must have been published in 2019. To make things interesting I have added a couple of teeny, tiny rules this year which are; 1) the book must have first been published in 2019 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes 😉.
Here are Kate’s recommendations…
Take It Back by Kia Abdullah
There are so many layers to this book and each one is relevant to society today. It’s incredibly powerful and thought provoking.
Kate’s Review of Take It Back
Call Me Star Girl by Louise Beech
It’s different from Louise Beech’s other books but just as beautifully written. It’s also really atmospheric and full of tension.
Kate’s Review of Call Me Star Girl
The Girl at the Window by Rowan Coleman
Rowan Coleman’s writing is so beautiful. I don’t even have the words! It’s also fascinating to learn more about Emily Bronte.
Kate’s Review of The Girl at the Window
Thanks so much, Kate. I have a copy of Call Me Star Girl which I’m really looking forward to reading.
