      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…

What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

I watched half each of two different episodes of Killing Eve over the last few weeks and that's been about it.  I have been thinking about getting Netflix, there seems to be interesting stuff on there.

 

I recently finished Killing Eve - amazing, the two lead actresses were so good in it! I watched it all on iPlayer in a few days (good for me, I struggle binge-watching).

 

As for Netflix I'm watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix, which is really good. Netflix has a lot of good stuff but there's a lot of rubbish too to sift through. Wanting to watch the Adventures of Sabrina soon-ish. 

 

The only other thing I'm watching religiously and keeping up with is The Apprentice! Haha. I used to be massively into series, but it's fallen away somewhat over the past few years...

I like The Apprentice too! But this year especially they just seem a bunch of half wits.

I've started to watch Peep Show again. I keep finding myself going back to old shows, especially comedies at the moment.

I don't even know who I can see as winning this year, not a clear winner to me. and Omg so true!  Did you see last week's? Those urban gardens they did were awful! Haha. What other shows do you watch? :P

I'm still watching Vanity Fair, there's only one episode left. 

 

Has anyone watched Capital? I've watched the first episode, and I'm intrigued! I know it's based on a novel which is on my wishlist... I wonder if bobblybear has watched it, as she read the book?

I've done both Frankie.

Lanchester's book is better than the film, but the film is well worth it too.

Only Fools and Horses. I always watch classic comedies around this time of year.

 

I watch classic comedies all the time :giggle2: Dad's Army, Grace and Favour, You Rang M'lord, Ballykissangel and The Darling Buds of May are ones I've been watching lately.

Sorry, I've only just seen this post now. :o

 

No, I haven't seen it....I didn't even know there was a show based on the book (which I loved)! I will have to see if I can find it on BBC iPlayer, though I suspect I may have left it too late. :wibbly:
