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 28, 2012

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Instead of not posting an IMM if I don't have the chance to film a vlog, I think I'll make vlogging the exception instead of the norm :)

I'm really making up for not buying a lot of books last month ;)

Bought from Books A Million
Angel Fire (Angel #2) by L.A. Weatherly
Why? I really loved book 1, Angel Burn and I'm curious to see how this story plays out. Gotta say though - this book is huge at 600+ pages!

Bitten (Dangerous Girls #1-2) by R.L. Stine
Why? I love R.L. Stine and I'm pretty sure I haven't read these already

Maximum Ride Manga Vol 5 by James Patterson
Why? I love manga and these series has really grown on me. Vols 1-4 were really good!

Soul Screamers Vol 1: My Soul To Lose #.5, My Soul To Take #1, My Soul to Save #2 by Rachel Vincent
Why? I didn't realise until I got this one home that it included the prequel, My Soul To lose - first time in print! I already have copies of books 1 and 2 but I love omnibus editions :)

The Secret of Ka by Christopher Pike
Why? I read this but didn't own it. The paperback cover, which I bought, is so much different from the hardcover but I still love it. Christopher Pike forever!

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Why I've been hearing so many great things about this book for so long! It's Brodi's debut and if you don't follow her blog, you really need to because she is hilarious! Can't wait to read this one

For Review
Overbite (Insatiable #2) by Meg Cabot
Why? I'm almost done with Insatiable and while I'm not loving it I don't want give up on Meg just yet! A great deal smaller then book 1, I'm hoping I like book 2 just a little bit more

OMG this just came in the mail!

For Review
Perception (Clarity #2) by Kim Harrington ARC
Why? Loved loved loved book 1! Thank you so much Scholastic! This one is getting read asap :)

So, what's in your mailbox?


  1. Nice haul! I've heard awesome things about Everneath too... I'm currently waiting for it to finish processing at my library. :) And I have the first two Soul Screamers books on my shelf but haven't gotten around to reading them yet. I should look around and see if I can find the prequel.

    Happy reading! :)
    From A to Z

  2. You've got quite a bit of dark paranormal YA in your mailbox this week!


  3. Awesome haul! Some many great sounding titles (I'll be curious to see what you think of Everneath). =)

    Happy reading.

  4. Wait... WHAT?! R.L. Stine.. I did not know he had books like this out. Where the heck have I been. I used to read his Fear Street series when I was little, and then my son read the Goosebumps books. I have to read the Dangerous Girls. I'm so excited.

    And Everneath... sigh... soooo good.

  5. Hi Emily! I received Angelina's Secret yesterday! Thanks so much! I need to start an "In My Mailbox" on my blog.

  6. Great set! I loved that cover for Angelfire. I can't wait to read Everneath.
