I’m particulalry excited about the Riva Pomerantz bestsellers like Green Fences and Breaking Point for only $5.  I just started following her serials in Mishpacha’s Family First and she’s fast become my favorite Jewish Fiction Writer.

Here’s an excerpt from Green Fences:

“I’ll tell you something, Batya. Everyone’s jealous. Just when you think people would be happy at your success, instead they get jealous and sour about it.” Ruth frowned.

Batya stifled an inner laugh. Does she even realize that I’m the number-one member of the Jealousy Club? And then, unexpectedly, another emotion bubbled up: anger.

Batya Sternheim has much to be grateful for—a devoted husband, healthy kids, a Torah home.  But she also has a best friend, Ruth.

Ruth is popular and elegant, married to a real estate baron. Next to Ruth’s glamorous world, Batya’s life loses its luster. Her discontent seeps into her home, and her marriage spirals dangerously downward. Her husband Ari is willing to take drastic measures to save his family, but that alone won’t be enough.

Things can’t stay the same; but how will they change?

Originally serialized in Mishpacha, Green Fences kept thousands of readers spellbound. Now, enjoy this riveting novel in its entirety, plus a whole new exciting story addition: Ruth’s private diary, an exclusive glimpse into her inner world.

The Best Chanukah Gifts for 2011

The Kosher Shopaholic Chanukah Gift Guide

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah begins this year the night of December 20th and ends December 28, 2011.  While it is a big tradition to give Chanukah ‘Gelt’ ie: money, for Chanukah, it is also a time of gift giving.  My first annual Gift Guide has something here for everyone – adults, children, teachers, colleagues, close friends and distant relatives.

  1. Fisher Price’s classic Little People Hanukkah Set ($47) plays holiday songs and allows children to set the table with latkes and menorahs for a play celebration.  It might be a bit pricey but I can assure you that the entertainment it gives your little ones is well worth it.
  2. Jewish eBooks is a eBook superstore with thousands of Jewish ebooks in English and Hebrew.  This is great for those who love to read on a Tablet.  You can get 50% off all Jewish eBooks during their Chanukah sale with books as low as $1.99!
  3. I am just wild about this ultra classy Bird Dessert Stand.  The only place that seems to carry it is West Elm (who happens to be owned by Williams Sonoma) and its surprisingly inexpensive at just $34.
  4. TheYaldah Year Book ($12.99) is quality reading entertainment for girls between 9 – 15 as it is written and published by the girls as well.
  5. KosherLine gourmet kosher gift baskets are an easy and classy way to send a beautiful, Kosher gift basket to friends and family out of town.
  6. Gift cards are a great option when you are stumped and just don’t know what to get.  This is a popular gift to give employees.
  7. Kosher Cooking Magazines are a hot new trend this year as well.  A year’s subscription to one of these magazines is a luxury and pleasure for most women.  Some to choose from are JoyofKosher, Bitayavon, Kosher Inspired.
  8. Children’s books & music:  There are a lot of quality Jewish children’s entertainment sprouting up this year. You can’t go wrong with Rebbetzin Tap, Shalom Sesame and MomaDoniLite Girl, which I reviewed here, is going to be hugely successful for young girls.
  9. You can never go wrong with a good bottle of wine as a gift.  Kosherwine.com boasts the largest online selection of Kosher wines and is a convenient and easy way to go about gift giving.  They have wines on sale this December starting as low as $5.99.

Wishing all my readers a freilichin, happy & healthy Chanukah.  Make sure you win some great free Chanukah gifts from all my contests this week as well!

Light Up Your Little Girl’s Chanukah with ‘A Lite Girl’: Review & Giveaway

Introducing ‘Yael’ A Kosher Character For Your Little Girl

LITE Girl is an all-new concept in entertainment for Jewish girls.  The LITE Girl brand is committed to producing unique Kosher character books and dolls that are designed to instill young girls with Jewish values of “L”ove, “I”nspire, “T”each, “E”ncourage.

Lite Girls characters, like Yael, gently transmit the principles of Ahavas Yisrael and Ahavas Hashem, encouraging our girls to grow and become the kind of women and mothers who make this world a better place.  Their expanding product line, developed for girls ages 4-11, is instantly lovable and collectible. Girls will convey the Lite Girl values in their homes, schools, camps, and more importantly, hearts.

Lite Girl nurtures inner beauty and creates self respect.  A Lite girl is a leader by example, a giver, and a very best friend.

The first of the Lite girl series is an introductory picture book and page-by-page read-along/sing-along audio CD, titled, ‘Yael’s Loving World’.  Yael’s Loving World is designed especially for girls aged 2-7 as a Jewish alternative to Barbie Dolls or Dora.  I was sent a review copy of this adorable book and since we’ve opened the book, my 3 1/2 year old daughter has fallen in love with Yael.  She takes the book to bed with her, puts a flower headband in her hair like Yael’s every morning and wears her sticker all day.  Its really wonderful for our precious little neshamas (souls) to have someone like Yael, a ‘LITE Girl’ to identify with and love.  The book introduces us to Yael’s sweet home where she is loved by her family, friends and Hashem.

FREE Shipping Code

The Starter Kit, ‘Yael’s Loving World’ comes with a Picture Book, Read-Along/Sing-Along Audio CD and Two 2×3 Stickers and would make a great Chanukkah gift for the little girl in your life.  You can purchase it now from the Be A Lite Girl Website for $16.99.  Use the Promotion Code: KS at checkout to save an additional $5.99 on shipping.
