Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Last week was kinda sad, book wise, but this week was awesome!

Gothic! Ten Original Dark Tales edited by Deborah Noyes (To be used in my new Short Story Snippets Meme)
The Body of Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci (Read The SHE and wanted more of this author)
I Was A Teenage Fairy by Francesca Lia Block (Total impluse buy - but I love postmodern fairtales)
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (This looks sooo good. So many bloggers have been raving about it - I just couldn't resist)
Princess Academy by Shannon Hale (Another impulse buy - A Newbery Honor Book)
Love is Hell by Melissa Marr, Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier, Gabrielle Zevin and Laurie Faria Stolarz (Another one for Short Story Snippets - love these authors!)

  1. The Naughty List sounds so good! I really want to read The Summoning too. I hope you enjoy all your books! Impulse buys are fun but bad for the wallet. XD

  2. Really great books this week, enjoy!

  3. You got some REALLY great books this week! Have fun with all those!

  4. I didn't realise the next 39 Clues was out! Thanks for the heads up!

  5. The Dark Tower series is excellent. It's being made into graphic novels now, too. The first three in the graphic novel series are out. I just finished the first one last night--took me awhile to get through it, but it was worth it. Happy reading!!

  6. I have and need to read The Naughty List. The Uglies series and Among the Hidden series are really great! I loved them both. I've been wanting to read East, The Body of Christopher Creed, Love is Hell, and especially The Summoning. BookMooch is a lifesaver, isn't it? lol. Hope you enjoy all of those great books. :D



Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
