Hello and a very warm welcome to day 8 of #R3COMM3ND3D2020. So far we’ve had 21 brilliant book recommendations with another three heading your way today! Today I am delighted to welcome a ‘new to me’ blogger to share her three 2020 picks – Caroline of Bookends. I’ve had a good ol’ nose around Caroline’s blog and it’s gorgeous. Make sure you check it out!
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2020? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors, book bloggers and bookstagrammers 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 2020. 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 2020 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes. 😉
Here are Caroline’s three #R3COMM3ND3D2020 choices…
His and Hers by Alice Feeney
The ideal thriller novel keeps the reader on their toes until the end, tricks the reader into thinking someone else committed the crime, and ties up all loose ends at the end of the book. Alice Feeney managed all three of these with His and Hers. She is a master of the unreliable narrator, so you never know what is coming.

The Girl From Widow Hills by Megan Miranda
Too often in thriller novels, the female protagonist is this helpless girl that needs to be saved. That wasn’t the case with The Girl from Widow Hills. Megan Miranda created a strong, resilient main character who could take whatever life threw at her. You may be able to guess the ending of this one, but with such compelling characters you want to keep reading and see how their story turns out. This is the perfect creepy October thriller to make you want to sleep with the lights on.

The End of Her by Shari Lapena
Shari Lapena is one of my auto-buy authors. She never fails to create compelling characters and intricate storylines. This was the perfect fast paced thriller, with just enough points of view to never get the full picture until the end.
Thanks so much, Caroline. All three of your choices are going straight on the TBR!

Hey, I’m Caroline! I’m a structural engineer by day and book blogger by night. I’m a sucker for a good psychological thriller. I consume books like it’s my job, and man do I wish it was. I’m new to the book blogging and bookstagramming game, but I’ve received such a warm welcome so far. I love sharing my thoughts and opinions with all of you, and I can’t wait to read your 2020 recommendations!
