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.

A book to accompany...

Hi everyone, I’ve not used a forum before so apologies if I’m doing it wrong.

I’m going away to Canada soon, specifically the Vancouver/Vancouver Island area and I’m looking for a book to go along with the surroundings.

I’m thinking something set in the woods, a bit of adventure about it. 

I’m not the biggest of readers but I do like the coming of age books. Catcher in the Rye my favourite. Loved Huck Finn too and if I were going on holiday to the Mississippi then this would be the perfect fit... so I’m looking for the equivalent in Canada... if that makes sense?! Although it doesn’t have to be Canada, just similar environment. I’ve seen a book called Hatchet by Gary Paulsen which seemed about right but it didn’t seem to be available on Kindle - which is a must! If anyone can suggest something I’d be very grateful. Thanks, Matt

Hi Matt, welcome to the forum. I can't think of too many books which would fit but maybe something like The 39 Steps by John Buchan. It's not set in Canada but if my memory hasn't betrayed me there are Scottish woodlands involved.
