Hello and welcome to Wednesday. The weekend is almost in sight, hoorah! And it’s day three of #R3COMM3ND3D2021, double hoorah! Today I am thrilled to welcome a brilliant blogger to share the book love with us, it’s Yvonne from The Coycaterpillar Reads. I love Yvonne’s blog and visit often to get new horror or dark fiction recommendations. If you don’t already follow Yvonne then pop over now and change that! We can wait….
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2021? 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 2021. To make things interesting there are a couple of teeny, tiny rules; 1) the book must have FIRST been published in 2021 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes 😉
As this is the fifth year of #R3C, things are going to be a smidge different this year. There’s a scary deadline involved *shudder*. The #R3COMM3ND3D application form will only be open until midday (GMT) on Wednesday 1st December. If you would like to take part in #R3C this year (and I would LOVE you to!) then please get your three choices in sooner rather than later. Any posts scheduled for later in December will be brought forward and I will close the series early if I’m not able to fill all of the available dates. The form is at the bottom of this post if you fancy taking part.
Let’s find out what Yvonne has chosen for us…
The Watchers by A.M. Shine
It is part horror and part suspense with a cold complexity of being watched. My head was unravelled like a spinning top with the twists that kept barrelling my way.
Yvonne’s Review of The Watchers
The Goners by L. Stephenson
The Goners highlights in a spectacular debut just why readers are obsessed with true crime stories. Fiction doesn’t get any better than this. It boasts an engrossing storyline, and this is a devour-in-one-sitting must.
Yvonne’s Review of The Goners
A Song of Steel by J.C. Duncan
A Song of Steel and its deep immersion into their world was filled with great characters, superb pacing and raw battle scenes had me hungering for more.
Yvonne’s Review of A Song of Steel
Three cracking choices, thanks so much Yvonne. I’ve been eyeing up one of your picks for a few weeks now. I don’t think I can resist any longer, particularly after your fantastic review.
