      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…

I love Corinne and find her so soothing .. plus there's a sort of 1970s vibe to her music which is always welcome to me. This is something new from her and there'll be a new album in May which I'll definitely get. I loved her two other albums :)

Been listening to Ellington at Night by Nancy Harms today - thanks to Peacefield for recommending it! It reminds me of Blossom Dearie, which can only be a good thing ;)

 

Yay!! I'm so sorry I missed this post before!  I love Nancy's voice :D

 

On the opposite end of the musical spectrum, I'm listening to the only Snoop Dog song in my collection, Signs:giggle:

:D. I have a few Snoop- did you hear about the petition to get him to narrate BBC's Planet Earth and BBC agreed? I want him to read me bedtime stories! I love his voice.

 

Right now:

 

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman and Beyonce's Irreplaceable lol. The only pop song I own, but it's a memory, so :P
