      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. How many books have you read this year?

    A lot of mine are short stories and even children's books. Reading is reading. They all count
  2. 1. My favourite books of the year so far are in chronological order Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck Letters From Lighthouse Cottage by Ali Mcnamara The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen My Favourite Husband by Pam McCutheon Shopaholic Ties The Knot by Sophie Kinsella The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte Prince Caspian by C S Lewis Mary Poppins by P L Travers War Horse by Michael Morpurgo The Yorkshire Pudding Club by Milly Johnson 2. Favourite sequels I dont tend to read many sequels, but I have read books in the Chronicles of Narnia series and Shopaholic series that I have enjoyed. 3. New Release I dont really keep up with new releases. I think the newest book released is Happily Never After by Emma Robinson, I have on my to read on goodreads. 4. Anticipated release Again I do not tend to look at what books are going to be released. I do enjoy looking at goodreads what is released this week and adding but I won't rush out to buy them just because they are new. 5. Biggest Disappointment Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. To be honest I can't say I am ever disappointed by a book. You either like it or you don't, but I have heard such good things about her books and I do have a couple of others I owe so I am hoping this was a one off. Queen of the Mersey by Maureen Lee. I am a fan of this author and have read many of the books but this one just didn't do it for me. 6. Biggest Suprise I wasn't too suprised of a book I have read this year to be really good or vice versa. 7. Favourite new author I have read a few new to me authors with whom I have loved the books. Albeit only one read which include John Steinbeck, Michael morpurgo, Anne Bronte and Milly Johnson. I will be seeking more novels by these authors. 8. Newest Fictional Crush I dont think I have one... 9. Favourite character There would be too many to name. I loved every character in the Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen. I loved the characters in The Letters from Lighthouse Cottage. 10. Book that made me cry. This would definitely have to be War Horse. I do not cry too often with books. Even if they are about the most heart wrenching subjects known to man kind. But this got me a little. 11. Books that made you happy I would definitely say Shopahlic Ties The Knot because I have loved following Becky's adventures and this had been my favourite of the series so far. I would also say My Favourite Husband because it was hilarious. 12. Favourite book to film adaptation this year. I have not seen any books to films adaptations this year. 13. Favourite review written. I do not write reviews. 14. Most Beautiful Book. I did like the cover of The yorkshire Pudding Club by Milly Johnson. 15. What books to read by the end of the year. I do want to read a couple more classics. I also want to read at least one Katie Fford book. As well as continue with the Cousins War/Tudor Court series by Philippa Gregory.
