      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…

International Competition [Closed]

Recommended Posts

For our little relaunch, I've been able to arrange some competitions through some publishers - which has meant restricting it to the UK.

 

The easiest way for me to do an International competition is through The Book Depository - if you live in a country which they deliver to you can take part. (Not the UK, as most comps on here are for the UK)

 

However, it's only for existing members as of today. If you win, you'll be able to choose any paperback, up to £7.99, which seems to be the usual paperback price. Send me a PM if you want to check with me if your choice would be possible.

 

To enter - simply respond to this thread, telling me one of your favourite books so far this year. 

 

Closing date midnight 30th August (GMT)

It's difficult to pick just one, but I'm going to go with Graeme Simsion - The Rosie Project. It was thoroughly enjoyable, well written and I could really identify with the main character (a lot of his thinking is similar to my own).

Hmm, it have to be The Dirt by the Motley Crue, what an amazing and disturbing read for me.

One of many favorites was The Martian by Andy Weir.

 

Very difficult to choose, as there were many excellent reads!

Congrats Pontalba - can you send me your address, and choice of book, and I'll let you know if there are any problems. 

 

Oh Boy!  Thanks so much Michelle!! Have sent particulars via P.M. to you, just now.

Sorry for not responding yesterday, I didn't see it.  :blush2:

Thanks very much, y'all!  :D

 

FYI, I've chosen I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes.....I've been curious about it for a while, and husband agrees, so there will be two readers over here. :giggle2:
