#R3COMM3ND3D2018 with#BookBlogger Cathy Ryan (@CathyRy) #BetweenTheLines
I’m over at damppebbles today with my three recommended reads….
Happy Hump Day! It’s Wednesday which means the weekend is only a squeak away now…phew! I am delighted to welcome a wonderfully supportive blogger and another of my favourites to damppebbles today, the ever so lovely Cathy Ryan of BetweenTheLines ~ Books’N’Stuff. You must, must, must check out Cathy’s blog if you don’t already.
If you haven’t seen any of my #R3COMM3ND3D2018 posts so far then where have you been for the last 20 or so days?! #R3COMM3ND3D2018 is a chance for book bloggers, authors and those who work in publishing to share three books they love with the rest of us. The catch being, all three books must have been published in 2018. Other than that, there are no rules.
Here are Cathy’s choices…

Writers, potential customers, publishers, and oh yes—you, Amazon—should be jumping for joy and giving thanks that I’ve taken hours to read and yet more hours to craft reviews for hundreds of books. Instead, Amazon, you’ve decided to punish reviewers like me.
In the name of discouraging “fake” reviews, your new policy requires reviewers like me to spend $50 on Amazon’s US site and even more, £40 on Amazon UK before I can share my review. Have you thought about other solutions, or the effect this will have on legitimate reviewers?
Amazon has figured out how to conduct millions of legitimate…

Although I basically suck at that, I’m going to spend the next couple of days tweeting and posting about this special countdown promotion that Amazon Kindle is running before I return this blog to it’s regularly-scheduled random confusion. Sorry about that.]
Reviewers are saying:
“A detailed and complex plot lends itself to lots of fast paced action. Add humorous dialogue, super heroines, hunky men – with tattoos –…
