Hello bookish pals and welcome to Friday on damppebbles. But it’s not your average, run of the mill Friday – no siree! It’s Black Friday so if you’re out bargain hunting today – or at home bargain hunting – I hope you are successful. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for a bookish bargain or two, let me tell you!
Joining me to share the #R3COMM3ND3D2021 book love today is reviewer Angi Plant. Angi blogs over at Books’n’Banter so pop over and have a good ol’ nose around. And whilst you’re there, make sure you hit the subscribe button!
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.
Here are the three books Angi recommends…
The Beresford by Will Carver
It’s intriguing, haunting and everywhere has that curious house that seems to have been there forever.
Angi’s Review of The Beresford
You Need Me by Sharon Bairden
This is a unique and refreshing take on the unhinged mind.
Angi’s Review of You Need Me
No Honour by Awais Khan
It’s a look in depth at customs elsewhere and the author makes you dig deep into other peoples lives, but really pulls you in.
Angi’s Review of No Honour
Thanks so much, Angi. Three super choices. And of course, this is the second time we’ve seen No Honour by Awais Khan which puts it in joint first place with The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward and The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean. Who will be this year’s winner? I can’t wait to find out!
About Angi Plant:
I read many genres especially crime, noir, and some human interest, and humour. Whatever takes my fancy really. I’ve been blogging again for two years now.
