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!

Book Roundup (17) - April 21, 2013

Merriam-Webster defines 'roundup' as a gathering in of scattered persons or things (source)

Replace 'persons or things' with 'BOOKS!' and you'll have what happens in my house every week as I try to keep control of my hoard :)

This is actually a couple of weeks worth. I went so long without buying that I went a little nuts this month - hehe :)

Links are to Goodreads!

Let me know what you guys got! I love seeing everyone's new beauties :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First off! I'm so excited to be participating in World Book Night again!!!

  1. I love Handmaid's Tale! I've read it half a dozen times in the last ten years! I thought I chose that book for WBN but was given Language of Flowers, which I thought was my second choice but I probably switched them on accident...It is also an incredible book though.

  2. Lovely haul! I"m beyond curious about The Resurrectionist! That looks wicked awesome. I think this might be the first time I've seen Pulse but the cover is really gorgeous. I hope you enjoy them!
