Happy Friday one and all. I hope you have some bookish plans in store for the weekend. Today I am delighted to be sharing the book love once again with another cracking #R3COMM3ND3D2019 post. I am delighted to welcome another brilliant book blogger to dish the #R3COMM3ND3D2019 dirt – the lovely Melanie at Melanie’s Reads. Melanie’s blog is well worth subscribing to. I’m a fairly new subscriber myself but I’m really enjoying her awesome reviews.
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 the three books Melanie chose…
My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
This book never left me and I’ve been raving it about it to anyone that will listen.

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin
This is an absolute masterclass in the claustrophobic thriller genre.
Melanie’s Review of The Escape Room
Platform Seven by Louise Doughty
Beautiful lyrical prose and a ghost narrator what more can I say.
Melanie’s Review of Platform Seven
Brilliant choices, thanks Melanie. One I’ve read, one is on the terrifying TBR and one I really want to read!
