About Book Nation by Jen
If you read every day like me, or just want to pick up a good book when you have some vacation time, Book Nation by Jen is the place for you. I enjoy reading books by debut authors, hot, new women’s fiction novels right off the press, eyeopening memoirs, psychological thrillers, historical fiction where I am brought to another time and place, and non fiction where I can learn a thing or two. I only read and review books I have enjoyed; there is so much to choose from and I don’t want to lose time reading something that doesn’t spark my interest.
A lot of people ask me how I choose what to read. The cover and the summary must draw me in right away and then I do a bit of research. I look to see who published the book, go to the author’s website to learn more, and check it out on Goodreads. I also follow celebrity book promoters like Oprah, Reese, Jenna and SJP, news outlets like NY Times and NPR, various reader and author Facebook Groups, New in Books and publisher websites, along with attending publisher events to learn about upcoming books. I always like to hear what you are reading and am happy to recommend to you based on your interests.
In addition to appearing on Book Nation by Jen, my reviews are also published on booktrib.com.
