Hello and welcome to Wednesday on damppebbles. It’s day 18 of #R3COMM3ND3D2020 and my TBR is already near breaking point! Today I am delighted to welcome a favourite book blogger to share the #R3COMM3ND3D2020 book love, it’s Yvonne of Me And My Books. I’m a huge fan of Yvonne’s blog. Make sure you subscribe if you don’t already.
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 Yvonne’s three picks…
East Side Hustler (Alex Cohen #2) by Leopold Borstinski
I have been ready this series as part of the Blog Tours and I have been really enjoying it.To be fair I could pick any of the books from this series because they are all excellent reads. They follow the life of Alex Cohen, a likeable rogue set in the time of mobs, prohibition and racketeering. Brilliant series and one I would definitely recommend for hist/fic readers.

The Little Teashop in Tokyo by Julie Caplin
This was such a wonderful read and one that I absolutely adored. The author well and truly transported me into life, culture, ceremonies and traditions as I was taken along with the story. It is such a gorgeously described book and the storyline was very addictive. I loved everything about this story.

The Trials of Koli (The Rampart Trilogy #2) by M.R. Carey
This is the 2nd book in the Rampart Trilogy and it is such a great read. The earth in the future is not a place where I would fancy living when everything, even the trees want to eat you! The author has done such a great job of building the world for Koli and others to live in. If you have read anything by this author then you know you are going to get a cracking read and this book is no exception. Not too full of jargon or tech terms and very accessible to many readers. I can’t wait for the final book, but I am also gutted that it will be the final book.

Wondeful choices, thank you Yvonne. I’m delighted to see East Side Hustler featured as it’s a series I love.
If Yvonne has managed to tempt you, or if you would like to find out more about the books recommended above, please see the following links:
I am a bookaholic and live in Cornwall. I’ve been blogging for three years (I think, it might be nearly 4 I can’t remember). I am a genre butterfly and flit around most things and have been surprised by enjoying things I didn’t think I would like. I have an un-finish-able TBR as I keep adding to it 🙂 Picking 3 books is almost impossible as I look back over the year so far ( it is mid oct as I write this), so I am going to pick three books from different genres. It doesn’t make it any easier!
