New Book Site – A Reader’s Delight

Best books that genuinely reflect the time they are set in.

There’s a new book site that I think will delight any avid reader. It’s called Shepherd and went live on April 19th 2021. They Beta launched with 400 authors and 2,000 book recommendations and I love this site not only as an author but as a reader, too. Within a year that booklist had grown to 25,000 and it’s even bigger now.

The five books in the image above are those that I recommended based on how well they reflect the time they are set in. As a lover of historical fiction, this is very important to me and this booksite helps me to find the kind of read I know I will enjoy through their ‘books like’ pages. These are all powered by human recommendations and I really like that. By October 2022 Shepherd was having 200,000 monthly views, so word is getting around. If you click on the links below you can read more about my choice of books and what I like about them. Explore the site further and you’ll find books to suit your taste. I came across some that really appeal to me and introduced me to authors I may never have found otherwise.
