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 (20) - BEA BOOKS!

I'm so glad I put together these lists before I started organizing my book collection :)

BEA was wonderful and exhausting and I have lots of quick and no frills posts about my experience ready for you guys this week.


What I really love talking about are THE BOOKS!

I was good this year - at least I think I was. I really tried not to take books I knew weren't for me. Even so, a few made it home that after some consideration I decided I wasn't going to keep.

Anything marked with a * at the end have since been added to my donation pile for my local teen librarian.
I apologize if something is pictured I forgot to list...brain full...no worky so good anymore...
