This week Becky asked the Geekers
“I wanted to talk this week about book recommendations. Where do you go for book recommendations? How often do you challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone? How often do you read outside your favorite genre? How often do you try a new-to-you author? How often do you take a chance? This week, I'd like to offer you a few opportunities.
So your assignment this week, if you choose to play along, is to ask your readers for recommendations. Choose a genre--any genre--and ask for recommendations. You can be as general or as specific as you like. Consider it as an "I'm looking for...."
The second part of the assignment is to write a list of recommendations and share them with your readers. Choose a genre--any genre--and share your list of favorites. I think of this as "If you're looking for...."
I have been on a backlist high at the moment so this topic was definately for me. I am so out of the loop of what has been released, what is a must read, series I have fallen on the wayside with and new author and publishers that I have to try.

As per instructions tell me

2. What are you jonseing for at the moment?
As for the second part of the question, three books I would recommend at the moment are
