Watching Willow Watts Release!

Talli Roland's book WATCHING WILLOW WATTS comes out today and it looks adorable! I love the premise and I can't wait to read it.

Here's the summary of the book, which you can order on Amazon:

For Willow Watts, life has settled into a predictably dull routine: days behind the counter at her father's antique shop and nights watching TV, as the pension-aged residents of Britain's Ugliest Village bed down for yet another early night. But everything changes when a YouTube video of Willow's epically embarrassing Marilyn Monroe impersonation gets millions of hits after a viewer spots Marilyn's ghostly image in a frame.

Instantly, Willow's town is overrun with fans flocking to see the 'new Marilyn'. Egged on by the villagers -- whose shops and businesses are cashing in -- Willow embraces her new identity, dying her hair platinum and ramming herself full of cakes to achieve Marilyn's legendary curves.
But when a former flame returns seeking the old Willow, Willow must decide: can she risk her stardom and her village's newfound fortune on love, or is being Marilyn her ticket to happiness?

Sounds great, right? It reminds me of a fun girl movie like Bridget Jones or The Holiday.

Tallia is doing a web splash where we had to answer her question, "If I could be anyone, I'd be..."

I thought about this question a lot, and I think I'd choose Carrie Bradshaw. I know she's not real, but my gosh, her wardrobe is and I would love to wear some of it. And don't get me started on her shoes! I was a bit jealous of her life as a writer in NYC which allowed her to run all over the town meeting her friends for fabulous meals, which sounds amazin. Although if I was Carrie, I totally would have picked Aiden over Mr. Big!

What about you? Who would you be? You can check out the other blogger's answers at Tallia's blog!

I was jealous of the fact that a bit of tapping away at the laptop every night earned Carrie that awesome lifestyle :-)

I once sat through a week-long sex in the city marathon with an ex boyfriend. He was metrosexual, what can I say? And by the end I totally felt like I was living in their world . IT was creepy. lol.

Willow Watts sound adorable.

And omg YES to Sarah Pearson's comment, lol. How unbelievably unrealistic. Have you seen "Carrie Bradshaw Math"? It's amazing:

I wouldn't really want to be her, but I wouldn't mind her career.

Such a great choice! Carrie's fabulous! I miss watching that show.

Matthew MacNish said...

Is that the one Sarah Jessica Parker plays? I've never seen the show, but she sure is lovely. And stylish.

What a fun closet to have! And yes, I would totally have picked Aiden!

Talli Roland said...

Oh, I would love to be Carrie! I covet her fashion. Besides, she's a writer! A successful one! What's not to like?

Thanks so much for taking part!
