Hello and happy Friday. The weekend is here…almost! What better way to start the weekend than adding a couple of books to your TBR?! That’s my plan for today anyway and I’m sticking to it 😂 It’s also day 31 of #R3COMM3ND3D2021 which means there’s a very good chance we’ll do just that thanks to today’s fabulous guest.
Joining me to share the book love today is the brilliant Lindsey of A Rambling Reviewer. Lindsey’s blog is flipping fantastic. If you don’t already follow then I strongly suggest you head over there now and hit the subscribe button. You can thank me later! 😉
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 😉
Here are the three books Lindsey recommends…
Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune
It’s been a long time since a book messed with my emotions like this. I cried from laughter, and I cried due to the sheer emotion packed in this gorgeous tale. Recommending it to anyone and everyone right now!

The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles
A charming and emotive historical fiction, this explores the war in a way I’ve not read before. All the characters are flawed and it’s such a powerful reading that makes you realise the effect the occupation would have had. Plus, it’s set in a library!

Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky
I only discovered this author this year, but oh my word, he blows me away. Pure science-fiction with everything that entails, his world building and characters really transport you to a different place. It’s made me read more of his work, which is a recommendation in itself!
Lindsey’s Review of Shards of Earth
Three fantastic picks, thanks so much Lindsey. There are a few additions to the wish list here for me. And what gorgeous covers! 😍
I read books, then I ramble about them! I’m a twenty-something book blogger that spends far too much time curled up with a good book and a cup of tea instead of figuring out adulting/life.
Sadly submissions for #R3COMM3D3D2021 are now closed (posts will be running until mid-December so we’re not quite done yet). Shortly after the last post I will be inviting you all to attend the virtual after-show party, which should be a giggle, where we can cast our eyes over the marvellous and majestic beauty of 2021’s books. We will also crown 2021’s winner (or joint winners, if that’s the case ). So I expect it to be a jolly good ol’ knees up! Until then stay tuned as we have lots more bookish loveliness heading your way ❤
