      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…

Your Book Activity - November 2018

Recommended Posts

Today I finished 'The Virgin's Lover' by Philippa Gregory and I really enjoyed it.  I love the double crossing and scheming that goes on in Philippa Gregory's historical novels! It brings historical textbooks to life.

 

Now I'm going to read 'The House of Cold Hill' by Peter James. My friend lent me this book, because she knows that I liked watching 'The Haunting of Hill House' and this looks similar.

Any fans of W.Somerset Maugham here?

 

 

The only book I've read of his (a very long time ago) is The Moon and Sixpence, loosely based on the artist Paul Gaugin. I can remember very much enjoying it at the time and have always meant to read more of his books.

I'm reading Around the World With Aunty Mame by Patrick Dennis. Am enjoying his sense of humour and the antics of the eccentric Aunty Mame. A very funny book.

It’s actually the next Maugham book on my list. In a while, I will definitely share my views on it.

It’s magical, opening something new by your favourite author, isn’t it?

It is! And what's great about this place, is being introduced to new authors you would never have discovered otherwise.
