Guest Post: If Characters Blogged (Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts)

Hi, guys! I have another guest post for you today for a Chapter by Chapter blog tour. This one is a tour stop for Replacement Crush, a new book by Lisa Brown Roberts. To check out the other stops on the tour, check out the tour schedule here. Also, stick around until the end of the post for a giveaway.

Vivian, the main character of Replacement Crush, is a book blogger, so I asked Lisa what kind of blogs she thought other fictional characters would run if they were bloggers. Here's her answer:

What a great question! This one really got me pondering. Here are a few I came up with:

Hermione Granger- Being the Best:
I think Hermione would blog about how to succeed. Study tips, arcane research websites no one else knows about, secrets to getting the perfect scores on the SATs. Also random rants about how to put up with the annoying boy in your life who's an idiot, who you might secretly like.

Sherlock Holmes - Observing the World
I imagine Sherlock's blog as sort of a Zen pastiche- lots of posts about noticing the details all around you that we usually ignore, along with cryptic advice about shaking off things (or people) that bother you. Possibly a few random rants wondering why he has to participate in commercial rituals like Christmas and Mother's Day.

Elizabeth Bennet - Dating Advice
I think the heroine of Pride and Prejudice would have a lot to say about making snap judgments about other people, ideas for what to do on your first date, and how to cleverly talk your way out of unwanted social obligations.

Thanks for having me on your blog; it was fun!


I also want to thank Lisa for stopping by the blog and providing such an awesome post. I know I'd love to read all three of those blogs. Let's be honest, if Hermione Granger ran a blog, I would read it religiously. Who doesn't want to discover new research websites?

The Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts
Publication Date:  September 6, 2016
Publisher:  Entangled TEEN

True love can’t be strategized.

After book blogger Vivian Galdi’s longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safe crushes, determined to protect her heart.

But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet new guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian’s zing meter into chaos. While designing software for the bookstore where Vivian works, Dallas wages a counter-mission.

Operation Replacement Crush is in full effect. And Dallas is determined to take her heart off the shelf.

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life's painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way.

Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, four-legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.
