      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…

Haha :giggle2:. I mainly picked some of my favourites that fit in the various places. Michael however just picked books off the shelf that had the right size, so half of the throne are books I loved and the other half are books he randomly took off the shelf :giggle2:.

Hello all! Sorry for the delay in posting here, I'm on a weekend away in Kerry at the moment!

 

I'm going to move all the photos into a post at the start of the thread so it's easier to see and compare the photos. If everyone who entered could send me a pm with the entry of their choice to win, (can't choose your own, sorry! :lol:) that would be great. When I have all the votes, I'll announce the first and second place winners.

 

Good luck!

Four of the five votes are in and.....

 

The winner is......

 

:balloons: CHALIEPUD! :party:

 

Chalie is however on holidays for the week, and I need her vote before I can award second place because there could be a draw for second place, and I don't want to just award it to the current second place person as that would be unfair to Chalie's vote.

 

SO, second place winner, you'll have to wait a few days, and Chalie's gonna have to wait a few days to see this!

 

Well done to everyone who entered!
