      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.

Books read : 52                 TBR  : no idea !!             New Books Bought : 19                       Total Cost : £ 09.50


And welcome to another year of Readingness ! :D


The first week of January, I had to go to Bridgnorth Hospital for a hearing test ( It`s okay-ish :) ) and the Hospital Cafe had 6 or 7 huge bookcases filled with books - all @ 50p - to raise money. :o


I may have bought some books...:giggle2:

First off, I wish you a very happy year of reading in 2018 :readingtwo::D!! I look forward to be following your (b)log :)!


Secondly, wow, you have read 52 books this year so far (in these 23 days of January) :o!! I am stunned :D. Were those Witch books by Amanda M. Lee any good? Some of the titles sound creative :). Are they mysteries with some fantasy elements mixed in?


(EDIT: Ah I just saw you posted about them in the Cozy Mysteries thread. Mystery solved :D!)


Great picture of the books you bought, 50p is really cheap! I own 3 Tom Holt books (Little People; Nothing But Blue Skies; Valhalla), have you read any of his? I haven't yet, I don't know if they'll be good but they sounded good (well, I got Little People for free). I hope you enjoy all of the books you bought :D!

Thank you, thank you ! :D


Once I`ve caught up a bit more, I`ll do a proper, big ` books I liked on Kindle Unlimited`. :)


I ended up forgoing TV and newspapers ( I now have three massive piles of papers :hide: ) for quite a few weeks and just focused on reading on Kindle. Towards the end, I was cramming in 3 books a day ( or the equivalent in novellas/short stories : 10 of those Amanda M Lee books were shorts, taking around 45-60 mins to read each ). I`d really recommend the Amanda M Lee`s Wicked Witches of the Midwest books ( though not really the first in the series ; I think she was still finding her feet as an author, and the characters don`t really `pop` like they do in the later books). They`re cosy mysteries with a bit of fantasy, though there are also 4 books in the series which are proper urban fantasies ( which I didn`t get round to reading, but will get to when I take out Kindle Unlimited for a month, at the end of this year or beginning of this year - I considered paying for a month when my 3-month trial ended, but with such a newspaper backlog already.... plus, this way my favourite authors will have written more books, and I`ll get to read those too ).


While the Witch books are really funny, they also have realistic elements. Bay - the main character - was bullied at school because she was different ( she can see ghosts ) and there are some great scenes where Great Aunt Tillie uses magic to deal with people who previously bullied her family. :)


I`ve read a couple of Tom Holt books ; The Portable Door, I think it was called ? I also got a couple of his books in the Save the Kitties shop, and they turned out to be signed, which I was quite excited about. :D

Wow, you've got a lot of newspapers to catch up on then (and TV too). Short stories and novellas don't take as much time to read, that's true :). I'll definitely have a look at the Witched Witches of the Midwest series, I have put the first two on my wishlist (and you're in my books recommended to me in 2017 post!).
