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 - July 26th

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

My first mailbox post! Woo hoo!
Got some Mooch books, a borrowed book and couldn't resist buying some this week:

From BookMooch:
  • Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Lavine -- I have wanted to read this book for a while now
  • Silver On A Tree by Susan Cooper -- I think I have all the Dark is Rising books now
  • Dragonflight by Anne Mccaffrey -- my first Mccaffrey book to read
  • Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire - if you haven't read anything by Maguire - do it now!
  • The Ghost Belonged to Me by Richard Peck -- one of my favorite youth authors
  • Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley -- already read this one - my review is right below this post
  • Memories of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin -- came across this one in Lost in a Book's Mailbox last week and it sounded so good I got myself one :) A few chapters in and I'm loving it so far
  • Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow -- I can thank The Book Explorer for my purchase of this one :)
  • Hawkes Harbor by S.E. Hinton -- total impulse buy as I was just about to walk out of the book store. I'll let you know how it is as soon as I read it.
