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.

  1. Supernatural

    As much as spoiler tags help I'm just too nosy for my own good. It's all too easy to highlight the spoilers! *Must resist* *Must resist*!
  2. Supernatural

    I want to post in this thread but I have to be very very careful. I've only just started to get into Supernatural (only on episode 2 of the second season) and I don't want to know any spoilers! But I love love love this show!
  3. Adverts you like/dislike?

    Yeah, the flake advert doesn't look all that appealing I have to admit. I heard someone say it reminded them of tripe! It's music I love.
  4. Gilmore Girls

    I was so obsessed with this show that I couldn't wait for the English versions of the dvd to come out. I've got Seasons 1 to 3 in English but the rest are Dutch or German, I can't remember. Luckily it's just the packaging that's in the foreign language and not the actual programmes!
  5. I've had to stop reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. I just couldn't get into it. I'm maybe not in the right frame of mind so I might pick it up again at some point. Now I'm reading Sign of the Cross by Chris Kuzneski. And it's really really good!
  6. Adverts you like/dislike?

    At the moment, I'm loving the new Cadbury's Flake advert. Not so much the advert but the music is so beautiful.
  7. Don't take this the wrong way but that makes me feel a bit better. I seem to be surrounded by happy couples at the moment and it really doesn't help. I'm struggling.

  8. Hi Paige, I'm sorry you're going through a tough time right now. :friends0: I'm going through the same thing so I think I know something of how you feel. It's really tough isn't it? :friends0:

  9. Gilmore Girls

    I just want to add my say! I love Gilmore Girls too! I only got into it thanks to the reruns on E4 - think it was mid season 2. I was hooked straight away and bought the boxsets cos I couldn't wait to see them as E4 showed them! Brilliant feel good show. I'm going to have to have a rewatch soon!
  10. I finished The Timer Game by Susan Arnout Smith, which I really enjoyed and later today I plan to start reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire.
  11. More book buying for me today. 5 in total. Confessions of an ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire I Remember You by Harriet Evans I, Alex Cross by James Patterson The Chosen One by Sam Bourne Sign of the Cross by Chris Kuzneski. I love having book vouchers!
  12. Thanks for the birthday wishes! Hope you had a great weekend :)

  13. I'm back

    Thanks for the tip! I'll look into that! I love that first sentence!
  14. What are you watching now?

    It is, isn't it? I love animals. I'd do anything to help them. I'm glad it's not all sad - there is hope there. I just hope they get a lot of money.
  15. What are you watching now?

    I'm watching BBC2's Wild Night In. Raising money for endangered animals all around the world. I've donated. I wish I could give more because seeing the animals they are featuring is breaking my heart.
