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 - August 2nd

In my Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Another great batch of books this week - woo hoo!
Anyone invent that time machine yet? You know, so we can give ourselves a few extra days each week just to read books? No? Oh well...maybe next time :)

From BookMooch:
  • A Season of Gifts by Richard Peck -- this isn't actually due out until the fall but someone had an ARC to mooch - woo hoo! I love Peck's books and this is his third featuring Grandma Dowdel.
  • Harry Potter Should have Died from Mugglenet.com - saw this at the bookstore and thought it would be an interesting read. I think it's funny when fans argue with an author about how a book was 'suppose' to end.
  • 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson -- been wanting to read this one for a while. The 1st in a series.
  • Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix -- a youth dystopia story that looks really interesting
  • Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern -- read about this on someone's blog :) and it looked good.
  • Ghost Huntress Book 1: The Awakening by Marley Gibson -- I've seen a few reviews for this and it looked good. Should get it read this week with a review up.
  • Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough -- ARC copy that MacCullough's publicist sent to me. I've already read it and loved it! Review to follow today or tomorrow.
  • Turning to One Another by Margaret Wheatley -- nonfiction book about communication.
  • What to Read When by Pam Allyn -- nonfiction book about what books you should read to your children at what ages. I know the author's sister in law and it came highly recommended.
  • The Reader by Berhnard Schlink -- I already read this one actually :) But I had put it aside to buy at work and forgot about it - finally took it home with me this week.
  • Fearless Girls, Wise Women & Beloved Sisters by Kathleen Ragan -- a collection of fairy tales and folktales from around the world featuring women as heroines.
  • General Winston's Daughter by Sharon Shinn - another YA fantasy by my favorite author.

I bought more books this week that I usually do - oh well :)
Receiving Once a Witch in the mail was a very nice surprise.
So much reading to do - woo hoo!!


  1. The first Ghost Huntress book is really good. I can't wait for the next one!

  2. I have Once a Witch and I really need to read it soon. It looks fantastic.

  3. You got heaps of books this week, Once a Witch sounds really good. Hope you enjoy reading the rest of your books.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
