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 - September 6, 2009

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

This week was pretty good. I bought more books then I should have (what else is new :) but I think I did pretty well considering how many new releases came out this week!

From BookMooch:
  • Into the Land of the Unicorns by Bruce Coville -- Unicorns have always fasinated me and I realized I didn't have any Unicorn books (the horror!). This is Book One of the youth series, The Unicorn Chronicles
  • The Shape-Changer's Wife by Sharon Shinn -- my favorite author by far. Another one I haven't read to add to my collection!
Bought secondhand
  • Silver is for Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz -- 3rd in the Blue is for Nightmares series. I'm collecting these as I can find them and plan on reading them once I have them all :)
Bought new
  • Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins -- Did you think I could resist? Reading it now and LOVING IT!
  • Among the Barons, Among the Brave, Among the Enemy, Among the Free by Margaret Peterson Haddix -- 4th-7th books in the Shadow Children sequence. I now have all of this series and can't wait to finish. Great youth dystopian story. I think I'll do a review of the entire series once I'm done
  • Unbound by Kim Harrison, Melissa Marr, Jeaniene Frost, Vicki Pettersson and Jocelynn Drake -- I picked this up in the horror section because of these words "...plus New York Times bestselling YA author Melissa Marr with her first adult supernatural thriller..." Can we say awesome?
  • Masquerade by Melissa De La Cruz -- second in the Blue Bloods series. Couldn't wait to find this one used after reading the first
Gifts (from my wonderful partner!)
  • Firebirds: An Anthology of Original Fantasy and Science Fiction edited by Sharyn November -- another anthology series with some authors I am unfamiliar with.
  • 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs -- Newest book in my favorite, favorite mystery series. I love Reichs and would recommend her to anyone who loves a good forensic suspense adventure.
So, that's my haul - what's in your mailbox?

(no Amazon links this time...getting this done a little later then usual!)
(btw - do you guys like the links or would you rather have a more detailed synopsis?)
