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!

Clear Away the Clutter Challenge Wrap-Up

The wonderful Kate from The Neverending Shelf hosted this challenge and sadly it has come to an end. I managed to clear my shelves of  5 books! May not seem like a lot, but I have to say, they are books that would probably still be sitting there if I hadn't participated in this challenge. I tried to pick books I know I had been putting off reading for whatever reason.

The books I read:

Demon Chick by Marilyn Kaye 
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin 
The Devouring by Simon Holt 
Merdian by Amber Kizer 
Switch by Carol Snow

I have decided to keep Elsewhere because I really loved it! The others will be part of a yet to be determined massive blogoversary giveaway in July - so stay tuned!

This challenge was really fun for me because it forced me to set aside specific books to read in a specific time - something I never do. Thanks Kate!

Did any of your participate? How do you feel about challenges aimed at helping us clear of shelves?


  1. Glad you enjoyed the challenge. And you did really well. It is always hard to get rid of books. But you did really well. Congrats.

  2. Congratulations on completing this challenge! I didn't manage to complete it, but did manage to clear out some books that would still be sitting there without Kate's help. Hope she hosts this challenge again in the future, as I enjoyed it!


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
