      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…

This is an interesting idea, I might get involved with this. :)

In fact, I've just got a free UK Kindle of this book, if anyone who might be interested in it.

 

Hope you enjoy The Disability Read-a-thon. :) There are quite a few of interesting categories, I hope to dip in during October.

I got 'The Girl In Between' free too, not even knowing that it features a disabled character. I'd be interesting in hearing what your TBR list, if you end up doing the disability read-a-thon!

Hello! Just a quick reading update. I've finished 'It' by Stephen King :yahoo: It took me 3 weeks to complete this huge book, but I enjoyed more this time, than the last time. It's not perfect (I will go into that more when I write a review), but really enjoyable.

 

Now onto a buddy read that my friend has been waiting to do. I'm about to read 'The Crow Trap' by Ann Cleeves. It's the first in the 'Vera' series, Has anyone read it?

Well done on finishing IT!! I look forward to reading your review :).

 

I've not heard of The Crow Trap but I did read the novella Too Good to Be True by the same author, which I liked. I hope you enjoy your buddy read :).

 Well I'm not much of a crime reader, but since doing buddy reads with my friend this has opened me up to the world of crime novels! I haven't got that far into 'The Crow Trap' yet, but I think it's going to be good.

Spoiler

Although, I seem to read a lot of crime novel,s with women in them who have just come out of a bad relationship, with a controlling partner. Why is that a clique with crime novels?!
