I love book bloggers

I've been a terrible blogger. I'm sorry. Life has gotten in the way to the extent that my internet blackout has gone on much longer than I anticipated.

Well, here's the main reason why: I'm pregnant and we're having a little girl this July!! It's incredibly exciting and I can't wait to meet this little person growing inside me, but let's just say that the first few months were a little rough. I won't bore you with the details, but thankfully I'm seeing the light of day again. 

But that's not the reason for this post. I just felt I needed to give a shout-out to the avid, thoughtful and amazing book bloggers out there (who are thankfully much more diligent than I am at blogging).  I'm so grateful when anyone not only reads my book, but takes the time to post a review.  And I'm so touched that the reviews keep on coming so many months after my book's release.

To that end, I just received a lovely review from YA Book Nuts, a blog run by Lori and Melissa, two librarians from Nebraska who are avid YA fans. The review made my day. You can read it here, and here's an excerpt: 
What made the book so believable was that the characters had both strengths and flaws and the dynamics between the two characters and their families and friends were realistic. This book is Jordanna Fraiberg's debut novel and with writing this impressive, outstanding character development, and a completely original plot line... I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. 
Thank you so much!

I hope everyone's 2010 is off to a great start (is it too late to say that when it's almost March??! oh well, the sentiment stands.)

x Jordanna

Hey! We book bloggers love you too! :) By the way, do you have a new book coming out anytime soon? Obviously, with the pregnancy, writing is taking a backseat (maybe even another car totally, lol) but I loved In Your Room so much (as you know) that I want to read more from you!

By the way, congrats on the pregnancy!
