      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…     

Books for 2018 ...

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year when we start to hear about all the new books coming out next year, so here's a few round-ups:


The Guardian Best Fiction for 2018

The Observer Non-Fiction to look out for in 2018

The Irish Times Books to look out for in 2018

The Seattle Times Books to look forward to in 2018

The Sydney Morning Herald A selection of the big books on the shelves next year


There are an awful lot of authors I've read and enjoyed on these lists, and with new debut authors being published all the time, I think 2018 might be a very good book year!

Ooooooh! Thanks for this (though Steve probably wouldn't agree! :D) I'll have a good look through a bit later with a nice cuppa. I'm not sure if they are on these lists but I have already pre-ordered two for the end of January; Still Me by Jojo Moyes and The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah, these will make my TBR teeter on the brink of 200, its highest ever...I did swear it wouldn't go any higher...............................................:blush:
