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 - October 16, 2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Vlog in which I'm pretty boring...except for when I say "Sweetspring" instead of "Springsweet" -- but I have FABULOUS books to show you!

Awesome Books Mentioned: 
Links are to Goodreads

For Review:
Silence (Hush, Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick (Audio Book)

Big thank you to Simon and Schuster Audio

Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon -- WHY? I have the ARC with the word 'The' across the cover girl's head - I wanted a finished copy after the word was removed from the title :)

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly -- WHY? This is the paperback version which I like a lot more then the hardcover (which I also own...trade anyone?)

Ruling Passion (Hearts at Stake, Blood Feud, Out For Blood) by Alyxandra Harvey -- WHY? Even though I own these 3 books individually, I love this series and I love Alyxandra's writing so I just couldn't pass this one up!

Ghost Hunt 2: More Chilling Tales of the Unknown by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson with Cameron Dokey -- WHY? The second book in The Ghost Hunter's non-fiction series - tales based on true life events. I love ghosts and I love the Ghost Hunters! Had to have this book.

Ghost Trackers by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson with Tim Waggoner -- WHY? A new fiction series by The Ghost Hunters - again - love these guys! hehe

From Maria V Snyder's Book signing:
Outside In (Insider #2)
Poison Study
Storm Glass

Thank you so much Maria!

From Nikki at Wicked Awesome Books - SHE IS AWESOME!!
Daughters of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - Signed!
And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky - Nikki's ARC with all her little post it flags still in it :)
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood -- ARC (Feb 2012) - OMG!
The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell -- ARC (April 2012) - OMG! OMG! (and so so sorry Saundra for saying "Sweetspring" in my vlog- big oops!)

Thank you so much Nikki!!

That's what I got! So excited to get these all read!
So, what's in your mailbox?


  1. It sounds like a great collection. :) I also have Ghost Hunt 2 and Ghost Trackers in my tbr pile and I've heard good things about The Springsweet.


  2. What a good group of books! Carrier and Daughter of Smoke and Bone are both on their way to me right now. I'm so excited!

    Here's IMM: Goldilox and the Three Weres IMM

  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is getting good reviews...(totally jealous over here).

    That is a lot of reading to do!

  4. I LOVE Ghost Hunters!! I think I've read the ones they have out... Not sure about Ghost Hunt #2.. but they've got a new one out, which turns out to be a compilation of their previous ones I think? (Maybe I'm wrong..) Anyway, LOVE that show. Can't get enough of it! :P

  5. I LOVE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE. It's probably one of my favorite books this year and perhaps one of the best books I've *ever* read. :D

    Aww, that was really sweet of Nikki to do; I'm not surprised she did that though xD

    Happy reading, Emily! <3

  6. Fab set! I really liked Carrier of the Mark. And I love, love, loved Revolution.

  7. I am so jealous of springsweet! I'm making a trek and 'borrowing' it from you now! I have a question about your audio books...do you purchase or do you review them?
    thx for sharing your awesome haul!


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
