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!

So, what's in your mailbox?


  1. Wow, you've got lots of reading to do! :D I got Trial By Fire, this week, too---really enjoyed the first one so I'm excited to get to this one. Can't wait to start Hourglass, either!

  2. I love your IMMs! They're always so....so joyful! xD


    (*coughs* Sorry about that. I got kind of excited ;D)

    Anyways, happy reading Em!

  3. I am really looking forward to reading your Hourglass review. I hope it lives up to its hype.

  4. Wow, look at all those pretty books! I'm with Sandy in her OMG HOURGLASS WANT, but I'd like to include Family in there too because it sounds really interesting.

    Good luck with all those Netgalley books. I know sometimes I go on a requesting spree and have no time to read everything. Happy reading!

  5. Fantastic books this week! So jealous that you have Hourglass - really looking forward to that one.
    Happy reading.

  6. So, I have this possibly unhealthy fascination with Charles Manson and his Family (I've read Helter Skelter 4 times, and I've watched a ridiculous amount of documentaries about him; I'm also going to read Joan Didion's The White Album only because she met members of the Manson Family and I want to read about it). Needless to say, I am now super-excited to read Family.

  7. :D We'll be reading some of the same stuff huh? How exciting!!

    Ah this RAK business is very tempting I have to admit...

  8. Great Books! Looks like we both are way over our heads with Netgalley. I have been trying to catch up on those too, so my next month will probably be very similar to yours :)

  9. Hi! New follower! I can't wait to read The Girl who was on Fire! I love that series! Great mailbox! Enjoy your reads!


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
