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 14, 2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Vlog in which I get better at not saying 'Um' but fail at being distracted by...everything...

Awesomeness mentioned!
Book links are to Goodreads

*Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
*Pretty Little Liars: Flawless by Sara Shepard
WHY? A very awesome teen saw me eyeing this series at Borders and she practically insisted that I buy them. How wonderful is that? Plus, I love the re-release of book 2 with the show pic - hope they do the entire series with new covers.

*The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate
WHY? I've been wanting to read Lauren Kate for a while. This one looks a little mysterious and maybe even tragic...and the cover is so soft! hehe

*The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
WHY? Already read (thank you NetGalley) and really needed my own copy.

*The Charmed Return (Faerie Path #6) by Frewin Jones -- and obviously when I said book 4 in the vlog...I meant book 6 :)
WHY? Love this series and all 6 hardcovers look so pretty next to each other on my shelf :) If you haven't heard of these books and like faerie stories, you should really check them out.

*Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
WHY? Already read (that you NetGalley) and really enjoyed it. (My review)

*Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident The Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin
WHY? Love this series and I love books adapted to graphic novel form - book 1 was excellent. Eoin is one of my favorite authors.

*Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
WHY? Finally gave into the peer pressure - I just couldn't ignore all the rave reviews any longer.

*Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
WHY? Heard that it's creepy and dark and maybe not for everyone - so it should be perfect for me :)

This one's from July - haven't signed up for August but maybe I will in September.
*666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce
WHY? Debut (adult) novel for Pierce - sounds like a good witch story.

*The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
WHY? Debut author that everyone is buzzing about. The story seems really interesting and I'm curious to see if I'll love it as much as everyone else has.

A big big thank you to Miss Lauren from Ravishing Reads for the RAK -- and to Penelope from The Reading Fever for help with a shipping mishap.

Another big big thank you to Briana from The Book Pixie for the trade

So, I think that's enough for me ;) What's in your mailbox?

  3. Looks like you have some good books. I'm interested in mara dyer sounds creepy,

    have a good weekend or whats left of it. :)

  4. Your vlogs are always fun :)

    I read the first book in the Faerie Path series and I remember it being very cute xD I didn't know that Artemis Fowl was a graphic novel but then again, I'm not surprised--it is an awesome series. And Ruby Red! I actually haven't cared too much about all the hype since I already had the book...in Spanish, lol. And Mara Dyer! That is a GREAT book--Michelle's writing is excellent. :)

  5. I got The Near Witch too! But I borrowed it. Haven't started reading it yet though because my roomate convinced me it was scary...

  6. I enjoyed Rage and Hunger. Great IMM this week. Happy reading!

    Here’s what was in my mailbox last week!
