Before I start today's post, there's something that has to be said.
Yesterday, the writing world suffered a tremendous loss when the amazingly talented and wonderful woman, L.K. (Lisa) Madigan, lost her fight to pancreatic cancer. I'd never had the pleasure of knowing her beyond blogs and Twitter, but I adored her both online and on the page. And she was friends with so many of my friends, I've felt this loss very deeply. My thoughts and prayers are with all suffering through this loss.
Part of me wondered if I should hold off today's TLS festivities. But Lisa was such a joyous, supportive person, I have a feeling she would want us to go on, to keep talking about happy things, about great books, to keep supporting friends with fun and laughter.
So that's what I'm going to do, but with a slightly heavy heart. And I find myself compelled to add that if you haven't had a chance to read FLASH BURNOUT or THE MERMAID'S MIRROR, I highly recommend you do. Lisa was kind enough to leave behind these stories for us to hold to, now that she's left us. Savor them--they're a tremendous literary legacy.
And...I think that's enough sadness for one day.
It's time to focus on something truly hilarious. This is not really a Bookanista post today, because we're continuing with The Liar Society Fangirls videos. But since TLS is an AWESOME book I highly recommend (you can read my review HERE) I'm counting it for the Bookanistas too.
You've seen Elana Johnson, me, and Beth Revis all go...a little crazy for THE LIAR SOCIETY. But NO ONE goes quite as crazy as Suzanne Young. You'll see what I mean...
I don't care how many times I watch that--it STILL makes me giggle.
And come back tomorrow when Kimberly Derting shows us why resistance is futile when it comes to this book. See you then!
