      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. It's been a while lovely lady, and as I am off on holiday this week I thought I'd pop in and wish you a Happy Birthday for Wednesday. Have a great day. X

  2. Your first job

    My first job was part time on a Saturday or holidays working in a health food shop when I was 15. There was only me and the owner who worked there, and she was brilliant. It taught me a lot and by the time I was 17 she left me in charge when she wanted time off or was going away on holiday. I loved it!
  3. Butterbeer always sounds delish! Every time a character in a book I'm reading has a coffee, especially something like a latte or mocca, I have to have coffee of some description too. I even try different types as they always sound so good. My latest is the addition of a sugar free caramel shot after reading about it in a book, I didn't even know you could get sugar free shots!
  4. Turned Out Nice Again . . .

    Sun, rain, hail, wind and freezing cold out there. A mix of all of them so far!
  5. What's for Dinner?
