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.

  2. What do you stubbornly refuse to read, and why?

    i refuse to read Austen, i never have been that interested in reading her books, i dont like period dramas, it doesn't mean to say she isn't a great author, i will probably read them when am a little older cos am 30 years young at the moment and enjoy something more modern!!! i am ignorant but i love it lol

  7. 20 Books Everyone Should Read!

    most books on here are classics or very popular choices, having only read a handfull of books in my life i tend to not go for the big titles... the one everyone has read and get something more exciting and unheard of which gives me the simple pleasure of telling people about the book because they haven't heard of it, things like to kill a mockingbird and the stand everyone has heard of these, maybe some books that aint so popular but are still amazing to be posted here!!!!
  8. Book buys: Internet or bookshop?

    i do like going into a shop because i don't like the security online and i heard of these vouchers people keep saying on here but i don't know how to get my hands on them @green shoes: where can i buy the paysafecard vouchers and which online shops can i use them in?
  9. Book buys: Internet or bookshop?

    you see in the past i have had major issues with my credit card and someone has obtained my information one way or another, i can't be so sure it was online but i never use it apart from in stores now.... the paysafecard is something i had heard of and would be a great thing for me to do, how do i get this voucher?

  14. Anybody know of any good comedy books, i really need some laughter in my life?
  15. How do I choose a book ?

    hello, what i do when choosing a book is firstly decide favourite genre, so i like comedy and therefore i look for a comedy book!!! now the comedy are quite easy to find because they normally have bright colours and funny text, i look around the bookshop till i find a comedy book that suits my needs and then i buy!!! always go with genre first and then read the intro to a book... most the times a good book will find you and not the other way round!!!
