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 - August 6, 2011

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Vlog in which we all could go dancing in the glowing light of the shinny book :)

Links are to Goodreads

From Paperbackswap:
*Morpheus Road by D.J. MacHale
Why? Um...I can't actually remember but it's been on my wishlist for a while now!

*7 Souls by Barnabas Miller and Jordan Orlando
Why? Another one from my wishlist - ghost / horror / thriller story - yum!

*Shantorian (Trackers #2) by Patrick Carman
Why? PATRICK CARMAN IS AWESOME! Seriously, he could write a book about what he had for breakfast and I would buy it :)

*The Crazy School (Madeline Dare #2) by Corniela Read
Why? It's book 2 of a series I really want to read...now to find book 1 :)

*Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble
Why? Already read and wanted my own copy

*Blood Red Road by Moria Young
Why? Started reading it and really enjoyed the story. Now I can finish it :)

*Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Why? Read an ARC but wanted a finished copy. This edition has a new cover and an excerpt from book 2!

For Review:
*ARC of Everblue by Brenda Pandos
Why? For a blog tour hosted by Eleni of La Femme Readers - my review will post in the next couple of weeks. And I love mer-people stories and Brenda is awesome!

Why? Not sure but thank you Random House :)
