      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.

  1. I love Misery, a really great book. So much suspense with so little protagonists and limited setting. How did you like it? I thought the first half was boring and I almost gave up and dnf-ed it, but then it got really good and suspenseful.
  2. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Since I had quite a long Christmas vacation, I've already watched a few films this year. Two Night Stand (meh, nothing special) Catch and release (sad, lovely, Silent Bob was good) Interstellar (oh boy, I hated that one, so freaking boring and plain weird) The Martian (really liked that one, funny, interesting, suspenseful)
  3. What Are You Watching Now? - 2019

    I'm re-watching Friends and finished Grimm. Hubby and I have also started a japanese drama, but I can't remember the title at the moment.
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    'Tis the season to watch the Harry Potter movies again, started yesterday with the first
  5. How many books have you read this year?

    49 so far, one book left to reach my Goodreads goal for the year. Though I've changed the original goal from 70 to 50 midway through the year. Too many slumps...
  6. Your Book Activity - November 2018

    I have this on my tbr, and I already read the first 100 pages or so a few years ago. I remember that I really liked it, but I don't remember why I stopped reading. And now I'm intimidated by it's size (and of the following books in the series)
  7. LGBT literature

    Oh yes, they're a lot of fun. I think The upside... is my favourite. I can also highly recommend The rest of us just live here by Patrick Ness and Every Day by David Levithan
  8. What's Up In November 2018

    To you too

    We've started The good fight
  11. LGBT literature

    I'm participating in a yearlong tbr challenge on Goodreads, where each month has a different theme. This month we read books with lgbt characters. So far I've read: Simon vs the homosapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli The upside of unrequited by Becky Albertalli The rest of us just live here by Patrick Ness Every Day by David Levithan and I'm currently reading: Leah on the off beat by Becky Albertalli
  12. What's Up In November 2018

    That's just what we're doing this week
  13. Your Book Activity - January 2018

    I'm curently reading Second chance summer by Morgan Matson after I've finished a rather disappointing A thousand pieces of you by Claudia Gray.
  14. Your Book Activity - January 2018

    I'm currently reading the newest book by Kerstin Gier "Das Wolkenschloss" and I'm loving it. Someone might know the author from the trilogy around "Ruby red".
