A very warm welcome to damppebbles and to the second day of #R3COMM3ND3D2022. After a cracking start yesterday, I am delighted to welcome another brilliant blogger to share the #R3COMM3ND3D book love with us. It’s the fabulous Ally of Bookwormjournal. Ally’s blog is a must read for all book lovers so if you don’t subscribe already, then make sure that changes!
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2022? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors, book bloggers, reviewers 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 2022. To make things interesting there are a couple of teeny, tiny rules; 1) the book must have FIRST been published in 2022 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes 😉
This is the sixth year of #R3C so things are going to be a smidge different this year. Like last year, there’s a scary deadline involved *shudder*. Unlike last year’s form which closed in December, this year’s form will close A LOT EARLIER. The #R3COMM3ND3D application form will only be open until midday (GMT) on Thursday 10th November. 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 November 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 Ally recommends…
Killing Kindness by Lisa Sell
I found this book to be incredibly unique and captivating with a humdinger of a twist that will never be seen before it hits. This was a book I wish I could have given a lot more than just the standard 5 stars.
Ally’s Review of Killing Kindness
6 Ripley Avenue by Noelle Holten
This is the first stand alone by the author and was filled with action, mystery and twists that sent chills down my spine. The best locked room style mystery I have read.
Ally’s Review of 6 Ripley Avenue
The Lucky One by Jessica Payne
This read was very captivating and compelling, it had me hooked while also feeling too scared to read on and find the truth. With a fast pace, my eyes couldn’t devour the words fast enough and when I finished I was gutted the book was over.
Ally’s Review of The Lucky One
Oh wow, these three books sound brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing with us, Ally. I love the sound of all of them.
