Bloggers Made of AWESOME: Kerri @ Turn The Page Reviews
Kerri- when did you begin blogging?
I started blogging in late February of 2013.
How did you come up with the name Turn the Page Reviews?
Actually it’s a funny story. I tried and tried for a few weeks to come up with a good one, but almost everything I liked was already taken. So my 12 yr old daughter suggested Turning the Page, which we changed to Turn the Page reviews. When I get really into a book, my hand has the page ready to turn constantly.
What are your thoughts on blogging today in an ever-changing book-ish world? Are blogs helping other readers connect with good books?
I am amazed everyday at the quality of reviews and posts that I read from my fellow bloggers. I definitely think blogs help people choose books- I know it helps me.
When you are not blogging (or reading!)- what do you like to do?
I just started running-yikes. I did a 5k last week in NYC. It was amazing.
Do you have any #literaryconfessions?
I am quick to put away a book if it is not working for me. This isn’t something I am proud of- I have gone back and read books that I have ended up loving.
Do you have a #literarycrush?
Sirius Black (and of course Mr. Darcy-wouldn’t it be great to find someone that was the two combined?)
What books are you looking forward to reading in 2013?
I am going to try to read some of the books that have been on my TBR- The Secret History, The End of The Affair, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.
Any books that you are looking forward to read in 2014?
I haven’t looked that far ahead- any suggestions?
In your opinion, what book has been the best book you have read (so far!) in 2013?
That’s a real hard one, since I feel there have been SO many amazing books out this year- but I did really love the first book I read for the She Reads Book Club- The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow.
You have a beach vacation planned. What are the 3 books that you must bring?
Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy- I love rereading while I am on vacations, so I can give some attention to the family also.
Are you an e-book or tree book lover? Or does it not matter?
I prefer a paper book, but am finding it necessary to read some on the e-reader.
You are a member of She Reads- an organization that helps women find great books. What is the experience like- helping authors get the word out about books and connecting women with great books?
It is such a great organization. They do such a wonderful job of highlighting women authors. I love their online Book Club selections.
In your opinion, what do you think is more important- a good opening line or an ending that leaves you wanting to discuss the book with everyone?
I think a good opening line, since I need to really be pulled in.
If you could go on a literary road trip- where would you go?
To Hogwarts and Narnia.
Real place? Then Paris- like Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
