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

So, I haven't done one of these posts in a while (Ok - so I have only actually done 1 :)
BUT! It's time for some more:

*My current contest ends December 31st - enter to win 2 copies of The Naughty List by Suzanne Young here! One lucky winner will also win some sweet swag provided by Suzanne herself - it arrived last week:

*If you have never heard of Kristen and her awesome blog Bookworming in the 21st Century you have got to check it out! Kristen is a wonderful person and this month, in honor of her birthday she is holding a Birthday Bash Mega Contest- with 25 winners! I absolutely love Kristen's blog and I know you will too :) I'm giving away a copy of Tithe by Holly Black for Day 12- check it out!

*A big thanks to Suzanne for sending the above mentioned swag! I can't wait for you guys to read her book :)

*This is my first holiday season blogging and I just couldn't resist participating in in these two great Secret Santas. I loved Secret Santa when I was a kid!

I already received my package from this one :) I incorrectly stated where they came from in an IMM post a few weeks ago -sorry! My Book Bloggers Holiday Swap gifts came from Jennifer at Crazy For Books. What did she send me? Two awesome books from my wishlist!

Beastly and Prom Nights from Hell
Thank you so much Jennifer!

Haven't received my Secret Santa one yet but there is still time - hey - not like I would complain if it came after the holidays :)

*December has been a pretty hectic month for me and my blog as suffered :(
I'm sorry I haven't been posting as much as I would like to. I have a ton of great reviews in the works! I also haven't been keeping up on my memes as much as I would like. Booo!!!
So, how do you guys make time to blog? Do you schedule it into your daily routine? Whenever you have time? Only on certain days? I would love to know!

*So, like I have said, I have a bunch of stuff planned for my blog. I'm thinking once the holidays are done with I'll have (a little) more time :)
One thing I'm hoping to get up and running soon are series review postings. I love book series and I want to highlight them - not sure what I'll call these posts yet so stay tuned!

*Last but not least! I'm planning on another contest for the new year - books yet to be determined. All I know for sure is that there will be more then one book and more then one winner :)
