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.
