      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

  1. Steps for writing a good book review

    Always toy with the idea of reviewing, this will definitely help! Thanks!
  2. Who doesn't love a good pet shame?
  3. Markus Zusak

    I've only read The Book Thief. It was one I kept picking up when I'd go to the bookshop, but then putting back for 'next time'. Then I finally got it and oh my God, it was fantastic! As soon as I finished it I just restarted it! Can't wait to try some of his other books. Just got to work through this pile of unread books before I buy any more (boyfriends rules, I'm not a fan.)
  4. Saga

    I realise I'm probably behind the times but has anyone else here read these? I borrowed the single chapters from a friend and now I'm hooked. Ordered volume 1 and pre ordered volume 2!
  5. Rugby

    God that was a horrible game to watch. Deserved win by Wales, England were pitiful! I was not a happy bunny.
  6. I keep meaning to bake pasties! How simple were they?

  11. Hi!

    Hello everyone! I'm Emily, 24, and a bookworm, surprisingly! I got a bit fed up of not being able to discuss books with people, as my friends aren't really big readers, so here I am!
