      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…     

Recommendations based on various authors, please

My husband has only recently got into reading, and his choices so far are fairly narrow.


I'd like to find a new author, but along the same lines as those he's already read and enjoyed.


He's read:


Jeff Abbott

Geoffrey Archer (no, not that one!)

Harlan Coben

Robert Crais

Michael Crichton

Tess Gerritsen


I bought him a Kathy Reichs to try, but apparently it's a 'later' one, and also not a good one to start with as it's 'different' from her usual style.


So any recommendations along those lines would be great (and also whether I need a certain book to start).


Thanks in advance. :D

I am an avid reader, but now I have become a reviewer with a publishing company and they let me pick a free book to review. I chose The Lazy Crew by Jon KuCala and this is a very exciting book. Also, The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch. Also, Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series, and Vince Flynn with his Mitch Rabb series and excellent writers.
