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!

Cover Love - The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

One of my most anticipated 2010 books is Carrie Ryan's The Dead-Tossed Waves, the sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth - which I loved!

I've seen a few covers floating around and wanted to know what you guys think. Random House shows this one for the hardcover:

I like it ok but it's not my favorite. There is just something I'm not quite jiving with...

Then there is this cover which Random House has as the "Unabridged Audiobook Download"

I like this one better. It's more inline with the hardcover image from The Forest of Hands and Teeth.

And then there is this one:

I have no idea where this one came form. It was the first one I saw and as of today the only place I have found it is on LibraryThing. This one is my favorite. Not sure why but I really like the simplicity of it.

The Dead-Tossed Waves will be released in March 2010 and I cannot wait!
So, which cover do you guys like best?


  1. Hah, since I'm drooling in anticipation for the release of Dead Tossed Waves, they could have a picture of a kitten on a raft and I'd still be thrilled LOL

    But seriously, I think I also like the third cover (stark & simple) best of all. Seems more fitting to the overall 'feel'. (Although, to be honest, I think none of three covers really and truly nails it. Maybe they need to come up with a couple more prototypes).

  2. I too am really looking forward to this release. I really hope that it is going to be as good as I hope it is. Out of the covers, I think I would have to say the first one is my favorite. I love the look of it.

  3. I like the second one because it matches the cover for the first one I liked better. The third one also matches a cover for the first one I found. It has a weirdish read flower thing on it. Ok that was really good descriptive writing there! If you go to my blog you'll find it on the front page down a bit.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
