The #R3COMM3ND3D2019 After Show Party
If you’re new to the blog you may be wondering what #R3COMM3ND3D is, so allow me to explain. 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.
#R3COMM3ND3D2019 started with a bang on 1st November and 56 posts later, finished on 30th December. And I loved every minute of it. A huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who took part, shared the #R3COMM3ND3D2019 book love, commented on the posts, retweeted or liked all things #R3COMM3ND3D2019 over on Facebook or Twitter. The 2019 edition was bigger than ever with more individual picks than in 2018 where SIX books came top with four votes each. This year there was one clear winner which received four votes making it the #R3COMM3ND3D2019 book of the year! But I won’t reveal which book that is just yet…
First, let’s gaze upon the beautiful #R3COMM3ND3D2019 covers in all their splendiferous glory. Aren’t they beautiful?! 😍🥰

We shouldn’t be wishing the year away but I cannot wait for #R3COMM3ND3D2020 to start on 1st November! The sign-up form will be available from June onwards so start making a note of those 2020 releases now 😉.
Once again. the biggest of thanks to all of the book bloggers and authors who took part in #R3COMM3ND3D2019 and whittled their favourite reads down to three (an impossible task, I know!). You make #R3COMM3ND3D such a fun feature to run ❤️.
