      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…

My favourite tea brand here in Germany recently released two amazing new flavours - blueberry muffin and caramelised apple pie, and they literally smell and taste exactly like those. Right now, I'm enjoying a cup of apple pie tea, and loving it =)

The apple pie one sounds lovely.

I bought my dad salted caramel tea for his birthday and they are really tasty.

Elderflower pressé

 

 

Ooh, I wonder what that is! *googles*  Aha! Hm, I wonder if it's good. :smile2:    Years ago we had this elderflower mix into which you poured hot water. I loved it! :wub: But it was a shortlived joy. They either stopped making the mix or they stopped stokking it. Both are stupid ideas. 

 

 

Edit: Found the thing!  Ooooh :wub:

I don't think I've ever seen anything like that here, frankie, and I've only ever drunk cold elderflower drinks, either a plain cordial or the pressé which is a sparkling, slightly sweet drink, but it actually has a floral flavour and scent rather than most soft drinks which just taste of sugar to me.  I don't drink soft, sweet drinks very often, and just treat myself once in a while to a bottle of this elderflower drink, or a Fentiman's Curiosity Cola or their Dandelion and Burdock (which most people think tastes like cough syrup, but I love it!). :smile:

I just made up a bottle of iced tea with sugar free raspberry syrup. Soooo good and refreshingly cool for spring!  (I had to turn on the air conditioner because my apt was 25c when I woke up this morning!)

Green Tea with lemon - I would prefer a gin and tonic but I cant have it so green tea it is.:(

Apple Cider Vinegar (mixed in water). It's supposed to help with hayfever. We shall see. :ph34r:

An ice cold Fanta fruit twist zero. I'm not a big fan of fizzy drinks (I'm a water glugger), but I occasionally have a small glass of this when the mood takes me.
