Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great week.  Lots of excitement over here at my house.  My oldest daughter turned 11 on Friday.  She is hurtling headlong into those teenage years. It is actually sort of terrifying, but also exciting.  We got her a cell phone, which may turn out to be the biggest mistake I ever made.  She is texting obsessed already! But it is so much fun to watch her growing up.

Also, I am super excited to report I became an aunt for the fourth time this week! My sister-in-law had a baby boy on Tuesday.  He is so adorable and delicious that I am totally obsessed with him already. I just ADORE being an aunt, especially since my kids are already elementary aged.  All the fun and perks of having a baby around, none of the sleepless nights!  It is like being a grandparent.  So that is keeping me busy.

So onto bloggy stuff.  As you  may have noticed, our posts have picked up over the last few weeks.  With Sammy and Melanie’s help, we are now running two posts a day instead of just one.  So yeah!  That is really exciting for me and a big milestone.  And actually, we are now keeping so busy I may be throwing in a third post some days just to keep us from having to schedule too far ahead.  I have had lots of great authors approach us about doing reviews and hosting blog visits so I am really excited for what’s to come.

Because the schedule is getting busier, I am going to try streamlining the schedule part of the Coming This Week posts just to make it a bit easier to see everything at a glance.  Let me know if you have thoughts about whether it is better, worse, or makes no difference.  And don’t forget, if you follow on Twitter or subscribe via email or feedreader (check out my right-hand sidebar), you will be notified whenever new posts are up so you can keep up with all our new reviews, interviews, guest posts, etc (just a note that Twitter and feeds show up almost immediately but emails come several hours to a day after a post goes live).

So here’s what we have planned for this week:


  • By His Rules by J.A. Rock
  • Orion Rising by S.A. Meade
  • Missing Butterfly and Tabloid Trouble by Megan Derr (rock star alert!)
  • Inherit the Sky by Ariel Tachna (Melanie)
  • What Binds Us by Larry Benjamin
  • On Thin Ice by Jessica Lee (Sammy)
  • Favorite March Books
  • Favorite March Covers
  • Promise in a Kiss by Piper Vaughn
  • Blacker Than Black by Rhi Etzweiler (Melanie)
  • Last of the Lesser Kings by T.L.K. Arkenberg (Sammy)
Hope you all have a great week. I have the kiddies home for spring break, so my week will likely involve lots of movies, malls, and play dates.  And getting ready for Passover!  Gotta get my bread in while I can.  Happy reading! Jay
