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!

Short Story Review: The New World by Patrick Ness

Prequel to the Chaos Walking series, The New World is a 24 page short story about Viola before she landed on New World. I read it after finishing book 2 but I think it would also fit well between books 1 and 2. Very sad but insightful as well.

I love Viola as a character so it was a treat getting a little more of her back story.  For fans of the series, The New World is a little something extra that is well worth the read. A free download that I highly recommend. In only 24 pages I was still left amazed by Patrick Ness' writing and imagination.

5 / 5 Stars

  1. I just downloaded that for my nook. I'm reading The Knife of Never Letting Go and struggling with it. But I will not quit! ;)

  2. Just finished the trilogy a few days ago. I effing LOVED it. Now I'm dying to read this one. Too bad I don't have an e-reader. I just wish this is available in print.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
