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!

Flashback Friday Review: Remember Me by Christopher Pike

Flashback Friday is a feature were I'll review a book that I read as a teen, reread now years later :)

Title: Remember Me
Author: Christopher Pike
Publication Date: 1989
Originally Read: circa 1993

SHE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT SHE WAS DEAD.
When Shari Cooper awoke at home after being at her girlfriend's birthday party, her family acted like she wasn't there. They didn't hear a thing she said. They wouldn't even look at her. Then the call came from the hospital. Her father and brother paled. Her mother started to cry. Shari didn't know what was wrong. Not until she followed them to the hospital. There she found herself lying on a cold slab in the morgue. The police said that it was suicide.
Shari knew she had been murdered. Making a vow to herself to find her killer, Shari embarks on the strangest of all criminal investigations: one in which she spies on her friends, and even enters their dreams -- where she comes face-to-face with a nightmare from beyond the grave. The Shadow -- a thing more horrible than death itself -- is the key to Shari's death, and the only thing that can stop her murderer from murdering again.

Totally love this book! I loved it when I was teen and I still love it now :) 
No respectable reading flashback list for me would be complete without a slew of Christopher Pike books. I read every book of his I could get my hands on. Like so many of my teen books - I have no idea where my originals are now but I am slowly working up my collection again :)

Remember Me is esentially a ghost story - told by the ghost. Shari dies and although she doesn't know quite what has happened at first, she quickly learns the ins and outs of no longer being among the living.

This book was great for me the second time around because, although I remembered who the good and bad guys where I had forgotten the twist at the end.

Pike as a way with story telling that I find extreamly enjoyable. If you have never read anything by him - do it now!

I suspect there will be quite a few of his books appearing in my Flashbacks :)

Happy Reading!
