Spooky Little Girl Blog Tour - Stop #1

If you haven't been following along, I recieved a copy of Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro from a giveaway. After finishing it, I began passing it along to other bloggers on a blog tour of sorts. Stop #1 took the book to Minnesota to Lisa of Lisa's Yarns.

Here is what Lisa had to say about Spooky Little Girl...

I was long overdue for a light read - and Spooky Little Girl hit the spot. It was just what I needed. Do you ever feel pressured to read serious, high-brow literature? I do, but I put this pressure on myself. While I enjoy the challenges of reading a heavy novel, it's nice to switch things up and read something that is light.

Spooky Little Girl definitely made me think. This is a morbid line of thought, but the people in my life are all disjointed. There really isn't anything (like a husband) to tie all the pockets of people together. If something happened to me, would all of my friends find out? Granted, we live in the age of Facebook so I think news would spread. But what about my bloggity blog friends? If I stopped blogging, they wouldn't really know what happened to me. And maybe they wouldn't care. But I would want to know if one of my blog friends passed away!

I hope to read more ARCs in the future - it was so fun and so exciting and sort of exotic to read a book that wasn't available to the general public. That's right - I just used the word exotic when discussing reading!

Thanks Lisa! I also found it pretty exciting to be reading a book that wasn't out yet. Like, yeah I'm cool. ;) I have made lots of friends via the internet and always wondered, how would they know if I died? What if they died? Internet friending is wierd as in, we may know way more about a person than their family or real-life friends, but those people don't know about us.

Spooky Little Girl is now traveling to Kentucky to be read by another lucky reader. Stay tuned to hear what they have to say about this ARC, which is due to come out April 13th!

Do you ever wonder what people would think if you suddenly stopped blogging? Is your life disjointed like Lisa's?

Kentucky is reading! I've already heard from one bloggy friend who is jealous because she's a huge fan of Notaro.

I can't wait to finish SLG and pass it on. :)

I was just thinking about that - what if I didn't come into work, would ppl know where I was, would they try to find out? Same thing goes for blogging. I have followed a few blogs where the person has just stopped so it is kind of freaky.

I have TOTALLY thought of that before. My mom knows about/reads my blog and knows the sign-in since she's helped me with a lot of design issues so I'd hope she'd write a blog post letting my readers know I'd passed on. Hahaha.

Lisa's reading chair looks SO nice and comfy!! Jealous :)

That book sounds good, I'll have to check it out!

I'm so excited to read this book :) I love light reads, it's pretty much all the reading I do. The last thing I need at night is another challenge haha.
Um Lisa, if you stopped blogging I would send several e-mails and if no one responded I would definitely start freaking out and googling your name haha. I would care!
I think if I died my sister or fiance would probably write something on my blog- they know how important it is to me :)

PS. I want that reading chair!

It was so fun participating in this blog tour! I'm glad I'm not the only dork that thought it was uber exciting to read something that no one else could buy!

I think that reading nook, looks simply fabulous. What a cozy place to curl up with a cup of tea, a book, and a blanket to read.

I've thought about what would happen to my blog if something happened to me as well because no one in my family knows the logon and password (or even how to find it). I'm passing my info on to some of my most trusted blogger friends.
