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.

    Settling In
  1. The Last Film You Saw - 2016

    Ant Man. Loved every minute.
  2. Discworld series by Terry Pratchett

    I agree with you, Hayley. Octarine is already a thing, it doesn't need to be something else.
  3. The Big Bang Theory

    I think it's getting back to its old self this series. The last one was very tired but maybe they have new writers for this one. Amy and Sheldon were just brilliant last week.
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2015

    I am up to the last film of the MCU. Just Age of Ultron left. Watched Thor 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy last night.
  5. The last book you mourned finishing?

    The Shepherd's Crown. Not because it was a great book but because it was the last Discworld book. Pratchett has been such a major part of my life that reading the last one felt like an unavoidable goodbye. My eyes still fill when I think about it. And the last page of the book is still crinkly from my tears.
  6. The Last Kingdom

    Wow. I just watched the last one and it was ..... wow. That was a great batlle scene. Just brilliant! Isuelt....... and Leofric.
  7. Marvel Universe

    I heard that was out! That's next on the list when I have the money. You seen it? NO SPOILERS!
  8. Marvel Universe

    I agree! Mark Ruffalo was way better. I've got two left for Phase One. My favourite so far has been Thor. But my favourite character is definitely Agent Carter. I adore that woman!
  9. Marvel Universe

    I just bought Phase One and Two on DVD and have watched the first three, not including The Hulk cos I can't stand Ed Norton. Good way to spend a day off work!
  10. The Last Kingdom

    Nice? Is it not a bit too violent to be nice?
  11. What Are You Watching Now? - 2015

    The Great British Pottery Throwdown. Love this programme!
  12. Doctor Who -series nine

    In my mind, there's no difference. There's been so many versions of Clara that anyone of them is Clara. And I can't stand any of them. Can't wait until Moffatt is gone. Then I can go back to watching one of my favourite shows.
  13. Doctor Who -series nine

    I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.... They've nearly killed her so many times that I wouldn't bet on her not coming back. She is Moffat's favourite Mary Sue. And remember: Moffatt lies.
  14. Stephen King

    IMO, the quality went down when he stopped drinking. Which is a damn shame as he had to stop or die.
  15. Strictly Come Dancing

    You're right. I don't know if it was nerves on his first night or what. He may be better this week. And they all do it live so... they can't get it right every time.
