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!

News, Thanks and Musings

Taking some time to post some updates about me / and or my blog as well as to send some big thank yous out to some wonderful people

Wow, I can't believe it's only been a couple of weeks since I started up this blog. I knew from the start that I was going to have loads of fun. I mean: books + people who love books + talking about books + more books! Win, win, win situation on all fronts :)
What I didn't expect however was the wonderful response from so many other book bloggers out there. I have learned so, so much and have been feeling very welcomed into this extraordinary community.
I've been gushing about my blogging experiences (writing my own blog, following other blogs, making connections with authors of wonderful books) and more then once I have gotten the response - 'so, you can do this for money or something?'. What? I say. Um - no, I do this because I love books! 'Oh, is that all'....some people just don't get it :) But some people do! And I'm here now to share some of the book love I have received over the past couple of weeks :)

Here it goes -- great big thanks being send out to:
Can you feel the love? I sure can :)

So, my first book love genre is YA fantasy, sci-fi, some fiction and after some thought I have decided to tailor this blog to reflect that. My first couple of Book Reviews however where adult novels - because that is what I read at the time. I do read mostly YA novels but over the year there are still a bunch of new and old adult books that make their way into my read pile.
I was thinking of creating a second blog - one for reviews of adult novels I have read and I'm wondering what you think. Does anyone else host more then one blog? Is it worth it? Would it be ok to pepper my YA blog with a few adult reviews and/or comments and giveaways?

I'm not at all sure what book I'll be giving away yet but I would love to host a giveaway in late August or early September. I was thinking of waiting until I had at least 20 followers (I have 5 right now - thank you!!) but I don't necessarily want to fluff up my follower total with people only joining to earn an extra point in a giveaway - does that make sense?
So! I'm telling you (5) :) -- if you know of fellow bloggers or people who like to follow blogs who YOU think might enjoy reading mine - please let them know and you will have my utmost appreciation :)
I'm thinking that even if I don't get 20 followers soon - I'll give away a book cause it would be fun.

Ok - that's all I have in me right now. Check back soon for my review of Once A Witch.
As always - happy reading to all!
