Blogger of the Week: I Like Big Books!!

Welcome to Turning Pages!

And to "Blogger of the Week"! "Blogger of the Week" is a feature hosted here at Turning Pages, showcasing other book blogs. This feature was created to spread the word about book blogs, and to allow others to discover different bloggers and book reviewers! If you are a book blogger and would like to be featured here at Turning Pages, as a blogger of the week, click here!

Your name/Blog's name: Jen Pace. I Like Big Books.
Genre: All genres!
Blog Established: November 2012
Inspiration: I had too many book reviews on my main blog and decided I need a separate book blog!
Coffee or Tea: Well I don't drink tea very often but I HATE coffee so...

When you’re not reading or blogging, what are you doing? 

Working as a children's librarian, doing homework (I'm getting my master's in Library & Information Science), or traveling (my other passion!)

Where is your favorite place to read?

On the library's reading deck on my lunch break or in my bed before I go to sleep.

What do you use as a bookmark, if you don’t use one, how do you keep your place in a book? 

I always dog-eared the pages before I became a librarian... But then I felt guilty, so now I always use a bookmark!

What book do you find yourself recommending to people over and over again, why? 

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie because it is my favorite book! A quick read that will make you laugh and cry.

Do you always read an entire book from finish to end, even if you’re not enjoying it? 

No! I give it about three chapters. There are so many books I want to read; I don't have time to waste on a book that's not spectacular.

Your favorite quote from a book? 

"We accept the love we think we deserve" from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

What is the longest book you’ve read? How many pages does it have? 

Probably the first two books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, which are around 900 pages each (but so worth it!). 

What is the most recent book you’ve read, describe it in ten words! 

Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. The heartwarming and hilarious story of a mentally disturbed man.
