Blog Tour: The Trouble with Destiny

Today we have a special feature with Lauren Morrill, Author of The Trouble With Destiny. The Trouble with Destiny hit shelves on December 8, 2015, and having already read it, I can tell you that it is the perfect light read that shows you how important the people around you are.

About the Book:

It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey...

With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.

Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.

But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.


About the Author
Lauren Elizabeth Morrill is many things, including, but not limited to, a writer, an educator, a badass roller derby skater, a former band nerd, an aggressive driver, and a die-hard Mac person. She also watches a lot of TV, eats a lot of junk food, and drinks a lot of Coke. It's a wonder her brain and teeth haven't rotted out of her head.

Lauren is the author of Meant to Be, Being Sloane Jacobs, The Trouble With Destiny, and the forthcoming My Unscripted Life (October 2016), all from Random House. 

The Fun Stuff

I asked Lauren who the top 10 people you would want to be stranded on a boat with (people you know/celebrities). Liza is stranded on the boat with a combination of people who she likes and dislikes. Check out Lauren's list below!

1. Sarah Dessen, because she’d make you feel like it’s all going to be okay
2. Emery Lord, because you know she’d make you laugh
3. Libba Bray, because she’d tell the best stories
4. Mario Batali, because someone needs to keep us fed, and Mama likes pasta
5. Adele, because #squadgoals
6. Lauren Graham, so we could play Gilmore Girls pretend
7. Taylor Kitsch, so we could play Friday Night Lights pretend
8. Tina Fey, because more laughing
9. Mindy Kaling, because EVEN MORE LAUGHING
10. Amy Poehler, because YASSSS QUEEN 
  More fun stuff!

  1. Oh! I read this one last week. I felt a bit conflicted just because I'm a teacher, and there were a lot of things that I questioned from a teacher's POV, but I think I liked Morrill's writing enough to read the rest of her books. :)
