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!

Beat The Backlist 2017 Reading Challenge

Beat The Backlist 2017 Reading Challenge is hosted by Novel Knight and is focused on getting some of those older titles off your TBR lists.

New books are very *shinny thing* *shinny thing* BUT once the newness wares off they can sometimes be pushed to the sidelines in favor of more *shinny things!*

Seriously, can't publishers STOP putting out books for like a year or so so we can all catch up?

(seriously kidding cause new books are life!)


The details:
  • No set levels or number of books - you set your own goals / pace (love!)
  • Books must be non 2017 releases - so basically, nothing coming out this year but ANY book that was released previously counts. 
  • Post it up on social media! We can all ra-ra-ra each other on all year!
  • Use the #BeatTheBacklist hashtag and include @BeatTheBacklist and @Novel_Knight if possible :)
If you think this is the challenge for you, head on over to Novel Knight to sign up!

  1. That's a pretty good list! Quite a few are books that I want to get to sometime too. I've read The Ugliest series and love it! Maybe one day I'll get around to reading the extras, the fourth book. Happy Reading!


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
