      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. Read-a-thon 2019

    I haven't been around lately, because I've really busy and also I've been trying to do NaNoWriMo this month and failing badly!
  2. Read-a-thon 2019

    I will have just come back from my holiday, so i will be able to take part! Hopefully I'll remember this time
  3. Read-a-thon 2019

    I've missed the read-a-thon again! I have been reading, but it was my mum's birthday yesterday, so I took her out for lunch on Sunday (most restaurants here are shut on Monday's) and then I have been trying to do NaNo Wri Mo too. I will try the next time to participate.
  4. Read-a-thon 2019

    Well it turned out to be a very disappointing read Sorry I wet AWOL last month. I did take part in the last read-a-thon, but I think I forgot to post my progress When is the next read-a-thon weekend? Have I missed it?
  5. Read-a-thon 2019

    I've finished the last 170ish pages I had left of 'The Crow Trap'. Now I'm about to start reading 'The Finisher' by David Baldacci. Some friends of mine gave me the trilogy, because they know I like fantasy/sci-fi type books. I have no idea what this is about!
  6. Read-a-thon 2019

    Yes, of course! I'm planning to try and finish 'The Crow Trap' by Ann Cleaves, a book I've been reading for a buddy read with my friend. She finished it about a week ago, so I'd better hurry up! Other than that, I don't know what else I will read. I have been given a fantasy series to read, by a friend, so I might make a start on that. I'm also taking part in a daily writing challenge during this month, so It looks like this weekend is going to be very busy! Have a great reading weekend everyone and good luck with the challenge!
  7. Ohh this sounds interesting! I will look this up too, thanks!
  8. Hi! I've just noticed this and selected comments! I don't know why it's doing this Thanks for letting me know again
  9. Has the novel been adapted into a film with Morgan Freeman? If it's the same one, then this was a brilliant film. So I will be adding this to my TBR. Thanks for the suggestion

  11. Well I'm not much of a crime reader, but since doing buddy reads with my friend this has opened me up to the world of crime novels! I haven't got that far into 'The Crow Trap' yet, but I think it's going to be good.
  12. Hello! Just a quick reading update. I've finished 'It' by Stephen King It took me 3 weeks to complete this huge book, but I enjoyed more this time, than the last time. It's not perfect (I will go into that more when I write a review), but really enjoyable. Now onto a buddy read that my friend has been waiting to do. I'm about to read 'The Crow Trap' by Ann Cleeves. It's the first in the 'Vera' series, Has anyone read it?
  13. I got 'The Girl In Between' free too, not even knowing that it features a disabled character. I'd be interesting in hearing what your TBR list, if you end up doing the disability read-a-thon!
  14. Phew! I'm glad that's fixed. Thanks!
