      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…

    Merry Christmas everyone !

    Also saying Hi back ! How are things ?

  6. Read-a-thon 2018

    Thanks Gaia And a big thank you for doing these read-a-thons throughout the year !
  7. Read-a-thon 2018

    I`m happy to read-a-thon whenever`s good for everyone else, too.
  8. Good Luck with the Book Purge ! I `donated` around 25 books to a neighbour this year ( lots more to look through... )
  9. Read-a-thon 2018

    Thank you ! I did manage more reading than I thought ; I seem to have read the 5 books in Charlotte Macloed`s Grub-and-Stakers series, over 4 days. It`s a fun series, though not as good as her Peter Shandy or Sarah Kelling & Max Bittersohn series. Taking place in a small town in Canada, it`s enjoyably silly ( though, I did have a bit of trouble with a couple of the characters - one of them speaks in a Scotch dialect and another using Regency vocabulary - it was sometimes a bit awkward to read ). I might re-read the first Peter Shandy book this month ; a Xmas themed book called Rest You Merry.
  10. Read-a-thon 2018

    I have yet another stoopid migraine now so won`t be reading as much as I`d like; I did finish off EE Holmes` Heart of the Rebellion last night, which was excellent, and also read a Charlotte MacLeod mystery - The Grub-and-Stakers Move a Mountain ( also v. good ). i`m hopefully reading a bit of the next Grub-and-Stakers book tonight .
  11. Read-a-thon 2018

    Count me in, too.
  12. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Aw, hope you enjoy them. And yay for hardbacks !
  13. Brian's Book Log - Ongoing

    Lovely book pics. Are you going to try the Wallander series ? I loved the Krister Henrikson ones.
  14. Your Book Activity - November 2018

    I read that years ago ! No idea about the scandal.
  15. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Hurray ! Amazon are doing another Kindle Unlimited 3-month thingy, so I`ll subscribe to that in a few days. Looking forward to the Wicked Witches of the Midwest books and EE Holmes latest ( which isn`t available yet, but should be in December, hopefully ).
