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 - January 21, 2012

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

No IMM last week because...wow, I can't remember why...and no vlog this week because I'm lazy! Ha!

Got tons of great books though!

Bought - all from my local Indie bookstore - love that place!
Phoenix (Beautiful Dead #4) by Eden Maguire
Why? I loved the first 3 books and as this is the last I really want to know how it all ends

By These Ten Bones by Clare B. Dunkle
Why? I really enjoyed Dunkle's The House Of Dead Maids and wanted to check out more of her writing

Away (The Line #2) by Teri Hall
Why? The Line was a book I wished I hadn't read early (I was on a blog tour). As soon as I finished it, knowing it would be more then a year before book 2 was out was killer! I cannot wait to get started on this one!

Death Sentence (Escape From Furnace #3) by Alexander Gordon Smith
Why? One of the best horror / dsytopian / thriller series I have ever read. I'm hoping Gordon keeps the suspense going.

Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Why? 2012 Debut Author and I've heard a lot of good things so far

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Why? I have a hard copy of book 2...and the audio of book 3...and it was on sale :)

A Million Suns (Across The Universe #2) by Beth Revis
Why? Because OMG I loved Across The Universe! I started reading this waiting on line to pay for it today - so far, it's awesome!

Out of Oz (The Wicked Years #4) by Gregory Maguire
Why? I have, but haven't read book 3, but I love this series and I'm pretty sure this is the last installment

Won from dreamonus.com
Altar of Bones by Philip Carter
Why? The type of book I could pass around to my book loving family members. Also, I don't read nearly as many adult mystery / thrillers as I would like

For Review
Vamplayers by Rusy Fischer ARC
Why? Sounds interesting and as much as might say I'm done with vampire stories...I really do love them!

Why? I've already read this but didn't own a copy. Loved it!

Corsets and Clockwork: 14 Steampunk Romances edited by Trisha Telep
Why? While I'm aware of the issues surrounding Trisha, I still wanted to give this one a try since there are a bunch of great authors in this book who I love! I wouldn't have bought the book at this time but I felt ok swapping for it.

Until The End (Final Friends 1-3) by Christopher Pike
Why? Because it's Christopher freaken Pike - in omnibus form! Yes I've read (and own) the 3 Final Friends books...but...it's Christopher Pike - you can never have to many!

"Bought" from Kristi at The Story Siren (proceeds are being donated)
The Vampire Diaries Stephan's Diaries Vol 5 The Asylum by L.J. Smith
Why? Because I like books with ridiculously long titles - jk! I read the original Vampire Diaries way back when they were first released. I liked the first 2 Stephan's Diaries and would like to continue with this series 'written' by Smith

Tighter by Adele Griffin
Why? I've enjoyed everything by Griffin I have read in the past and this one as been on my wishlist for a while

Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves
Why? Because wow! Reeves sure knows how to write outside of the box. I loved loved loved Bleeding Violet and Slice of Cherry takes place in the same f**ked up world. Can't wait to get started!

So, what's in your mailbox?

  4. I also got A Million Suns this week! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did! :)

    Happy Reading!

    And I just love omnibus editions, so until the End seems AWESOME!

  8. Slice of Cherry was my favorite book last year, because Reeves rocks and can do her own thing unapologetically. I hope you love it too!

  9. Nice haul! Can't believe that there's a sequel to The Line already, so guess I need to get reading! Enjoy all of your new books!


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
