      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…

Hi! My name is Amira and I love books a whole lot. I recently started a blog so I could spill my thoughts about the books I read in the form of reviews.

 

I only started recently, but I try write at least an article a day. c:

But I'm a little lost on what kind of book-related posts to write besides reviews (which I enjoy a great deal), upcoming releases and 'to be read' posts. What kind of book-related things would you guys like to read about on a book blog? Also, should I add a rating system? I've already figured one out but I personally don't know if people actually find this helpful.

Anyway, I'm always open for a chat!

Hi Amira. :welcome2:

I have to say, I rarely read book blog websites anymore. I have an RSS feed set up to the Book Club Forum review blog (which is linked to this forum) but apart from that I can't remember the last time I looked at one, including my own which has been neglected for at least a couple of years now. Personally, I prefer to review here on the forum, and read reviews here, as there's a much easier way to discuss with people rather than rely on comments being posted on the blog.

 

I know that blogs are still popular, and I've noticed that authors I follow on Twitter will often post links to book blogs, so the only think I can suggest is having a look at popular book blogs on the web and see what other types of post they make.

 

On the forum here, lots of members have their own book blog where they share their thoughts on the books they've been reading (see Book Blogs - Discuss your reading!), so feel free to set up your own thread here and share your thoughts on books here. :)
