If you’re looking for the next great read, or you’ve heard of a book I’ve read and you want to know if you should read it too, you are the person I’m writing this blog for – so please, sign up to follow me using the links provided on this site.
A little bit about me: I have been writing on-line content (reviews and articles of all kinds) since about 1998. In 2013, I began specializing in writing book reviews. Since starting this blog, I receive ARCs from NetGalley, Edelweiss, and most recently from BookBrowse (where my reviews there are exclusive to that site, and available only to site members, unless they are featured reviews. Fear not, I write new reviews for all those books here as well). Aside from this blog, and the reviews on BookBrowse, I also sometimes post my reviews on my Times of Israel Blog (an English on-line newspaper originating in Israel).
Aside from my love of books and my passion for chocolate (I’m a gourmet, not an addict), I like to bake, make my own ice cream, and watch far too much television. I recently retired from my “day job” as a Resource Development writer for the non-profit sector.
I’m originally from Evanston, Illinois and moved to Israel at the tender age of 21. I started out living on a Kibbutz in the south, moved to a (then small) development town in the north, and I now live in Jerusalem. I am very happily married and have three wonderful children.
If you want to know how I got to be known as “The Chocolate Lady” you can read this post here.
NOTE TO AUTHORS: If you have a book you want me to read and review, please take a very careful look at my Goodreads profile as well as the books I’ve reviewed here. If your book looks like something I would read, you are welcome to send me a brief summary (including genre and age group of the target audience) and if I’m interested, I can accept ARCs in all formats (PDF, ePUB), but prefer MOBI files for my Kindle, and if you’re willing to ship to Israel, I’ll be happy to accept an uncorrected proof copy.
NOTE: The links to books on this site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the book, I will receive a very (Very, VERY) small commission, but at no extra cost to you.
