Hello and welcome to damppebbles. I hope you’re having a great Sunday so far with lots of lovely books. One of the things I love the most about #R3COMM3ND3D is discovering new bloggers to follow. Today I am delighted to welcome a ‘new to me’ blogger to share the #R3COMM3ND3D2019 book love – Anjana at Superfluousreading. If you haven’t discovered Anjana’s blog yet then head on over and say ‘hello’.
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 😉.
Let’s find out which three books Anjana chose…
Mallory Cook and the Road Not Taken by Charlotte Nash
This was a heart warming tale, and surprisingly has very few people who read it since its publication at the beginning of the year! I think it deserves more notice and therefore decided to start by recommending it.

Superlative: The Biology of Extremes by Matthew D. LaPlante
This was a fascinating book, and very up to date with research in the field up to 2018. It can be read in bits and pieces and stretched over time. Even someone faintly interested in the biology of the world around us, it brings a lot into perspective and the author has a very nice narrative style!

The Burning Issue of the Day by T.E. Kinsey
This entire series is awesome, and there is another book out in October 2019 and with 6 books now available in the series it is the best time to start reading it. It will have you (at least it does me) in splits with the subtle humour.

Great recommendations, Anjana. Thank you so much!

I am a book blogger who reads indiscriminately when it comes to genre or page count. I like being emotionally invested in the books I read, and recently (since I started my blog) have started reading books to improve skills and learn new ones as well! I love it when people actually pick up a book I recommend and love it as much or even a little 😀
