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. How many books have you read this year?

    I have got up to 120+ it has made it so much easier having a list and writing down all the books as I read them.
  2. Your Book Activity - November 2017

    I have started on my Christmas books held over from last year. The first one I read was The Cat of Yule Cottage by Lili Hayward - don't let the book cover fool you into thinking this is a Christmas story it isn't I could have read this anytime of the year. Oh well it is read now and was a nice book.
  3. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    I watched that film last week Virginia, it was so good. Watched the last episode of George Gently. OMG was so good.
  4. I read all three of these books sometimes I found it hard going but I thoroughly enjoyed them all. A TV series wow cannot wait for that
  5. What's for Dinner?

    We had a hearty stew last night with dumplings. Stewing steak, lots of vegetables It was so lovely I don't know why I don't do more of them and it tastes so much better the day after you make it.
  6. Strictly Come Dancing

    As we were saying at home if he was the favourite to win why did people not vote for him. I so loved Ruth and Antons dance, I know lots wont agree with me and she did trip him up at the end, but I think it was in keeping with the dance and the way the crowd reacted at the end of it just shows you they went along with the fun element of it.
  7. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I have just watched Snow white and the Huntsman again did like this film and will watch the second film The Huntsman winter war this weekend
  8. Your Book Activity - November 2017

    The Corpse in the Cabana - Shea Macleod Destination Thailand - Katy Collins
  9. Strictly Come Dancing

    I bet that upset and annoyed quite a few people on Sunday. Mind you I didn't think the dance was that good. I will let everybody catch up so incase you have not watched it yet will not put who left on here.
  10. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    Three weeks worth of Supergirl, Flash, DC Legends and Arrow to catch up with.
  11. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    Wow I did miss it. Thanks for this comment I will download it when I get home been waiting for this last episode to be shown.
  12. Strictly Come Dancing

    I so love watching Aston, Alexandra and Debbie dancing, i always say if it is a good piece of music then the dance seems to be a good one and they get voted for. Don't think Molly deserved to be in the dance off but it brings it home to the good ones that no one is safe so watch out.
