      Summer Supporter Giveaway   08/31/2020

      Going on a Summer Holiday (Sort Of...)     The summer giveaway for Patreon supporters is finally here and this time we're doing something a little bit different. I want supporters to tell me where you would go on holiday, if you could go anywhere. The winner will receive a bookish prize based on their answer!   Terms and conditions are as usual. Patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the giveaway and selected at random. As we're a little late this year the draw will be held on the second weekend of September. If you aren't currently a supporter but want to be involved in the giveaway you can sign up to support us here:   https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

Books read : 52                 TBR  : no idea !!             New Books Bought : 19                       Total Cost : £ 09.50


And welcome to another year of Readingness ! :D


The first week of January, I had to go to Bridgnorth Hospital for a hearing test ( It`s okay-ish :) ) and the Hospital Cafe had 6 or 7 huge bookcases filled with books - all @ 50p - to raise money. :o


I may have bought some books...:giggle2:

First off, I wish you a very happy year of reading in 2018 :readingtwo::D!! I look forward to be following your (b)log :)!


Secondly, wow, you have read 52 books this year so far (in these 23 days of January) :o!! I am stunned :D. Were those Witch books by Amanda M. Lee any good? Some of the titles sound creative :). Are they mysteries with some fantasy elements mixed in?


(EDIT: Ah I just saw you posted about them in the Cozy Mysteries thread. Mystery solved :D!)


Great picture of the books you bought, 50p is really cheap! I own 3 Tom Holt books (Little People; Nothing But Blue Skies; Valhalla), have you read any of his? I haven't yet, I don't know if they'll be good but they sounded good (well, I got Little People for free). I hope you enjoy all of the books you bought :D!

Thank you, thank you ! :D


Once I`ve caught up a bit more, I`ll do a proper, big ` books I liked on Kindle Unlimited`. :)


I ended up forgoing TV and newspapers ( I now have three massive piles of papers :hide: ) for quite a few weeks and just focused on reading on Kindle. Towards the end, I was cramming in 3 books a day ( or the equivalent in novellas/short stories : 10 of those Amanda M Lee books were shorts, taking around 45-60 mins to read each ). I`d really recommend the Amanda M Lee`s Wicked Witches of the Midwest books ( though not really the first in the series ; I think she was still finding her feet as an author, and the characters don`t really `pop` like they do in the later books). They`re cosy mysteries with a bit of fantasy, though there are also 4 books in the series which are proper urban fantasies ( which I didn`t get round to reading, but will get to when I take out Kindle Unlimited for a month, at the end of this year or beginning of this year - I considered paying for a month when my 3-month trial ended, but with such a newspaper backlog already.... plus, this way my favourite authors will have written more books, and I`ll get to read those too ).


While the Witch books are really funny, they also have realistic elements. Bay - the main character - was bullied at school because she was different ( she can see ghosts ) and there are some great scenes where Great Aunt Tillie uses magic to deal with people who previously bullied her family. :)


I`ve read a couple of Tom Holt books ; The Portable Door, I think it was called ? I also got a couple of his books in the Save the Kitties shop, and they turned out to be signed, which I was quite excited about. :D

Wow, you've got a lot of newspapers to catch up on then (and TV too). Short stories and novellas don't take as much time to read, that's true :). I'll definitely have a look at the Witched Witches of the Midwest series, I have put the first two on my wishlist (and you're in my books recommended to me in 2017 post!).
