Redd’s Reads originally existed on Tumblr until I found that format too constricting and switched to WordPress.

About Redd:

I’m a librarian, who worked at a bookbindery until recently, with an almost unhealthy obsession with books, particularly fantasy.  While at my previous job, I was fortunate to create a network with several publisher reps that I can request arcs from.  I also participate on NetGalley and Edelweiss, although I really prefer the feel of physical books, and was selected as a member of the AceRocStars group through Penguin a couple of years ago.

My favorite genres include fantasy, science fiction, and some thriller/horror, and I enjoy reading at all age levels.  I try to make my reviews both helpful and conversational (kinda like a written booktalk) while avoiding spoilers.

Contact information:

If you’d like to contact me about reviewing a specific book, feel free to email me at reddjena05@yahoo.com.  Or send me a DM on Twitter via @reddjena.



I started actively seeking out author signatures, but authors tend to have appearances mostly on the East and West coasts, so I’ve been contacting them electronically, designing bookplates, and sending out SASEs whenever possible.

As a member of NetGalley, I have earned the following badges for participation in events and submitting reviews.

And here are my wonderful badges for participating on Street Teams!
