Hello fellow booze lovers! I mean, book lovers… right?
Welcome to our Boozie Book Blog, a place where we come together, while inebriated, to talk about our favorite books.
Our book club has been together for a while now. We get together about once every one (or two) months to talk about the book we chose read. Like normal book clubs. WHy am I explaining this? There is also a generous amount of alcohol involved. After attending BookCon 2016 in Chicago this year, we came up with the briliant idea to start ablog. What makes this blog unique you ask? We will not write any post without being drunk. Now, before I get into specifics, yes we are all well over the age of 21. We are young professionals who are avid readers but also enjoy an occasional (read: frequent) adult beverage.
So here’s the deal. We tend to read mostly fantasy/sci-fi fiction but occasionally dabble in contemporary fiction, poetry, biographies, and non-fiction. We guarantee that our blog posts are our inner inebriated thought streams. We’ll only edit to ensure that spoilers are hidden. All typos (already apparent in this post), grammatical errors, and otherwise crazy comments will be left in place. I for one have had 3 generously poured margaritas on the rocks prior to writing this post.
Instead of stars, our ratings will be in shots. 5/5 shots is the best. we also plan on comparing the book to a certain type of alcohol. For example, terrible novels would be compared to something like Steel Reserve 40s, while the best literature is closer to a well-aged scotch. We’ll also give you recommendations on what drinks wouldgo best whilst reading the book. (did I just say ‘whilst’?)
Here’s a little about me: My name is Sam. I enjoy long walkson the beach and world peace. That’s really not true, the beach is great until sand gets stuck everywhere and world peace is what people say when there’s nothing else in their brains. I have been an avid reader since I was a kid. Harry Potter (obviously), Red Rising by Pierce Brown, Codex Alera by Jim Butcher, the Ryiria Chronicles and Revelations by Michael J Sullivan, Pendragon by DJ MacHale, and Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan are some of my favorites. I watch a ton of sports, big football and soccer fan. Currently on my TV: POkemon. Yes I know, it’s old, but it’s my drunk show OK? DON’T JUDGE ME!
We’ll get into reviewing some books shortly, but I wanted to be sure that I got this post down while I”m still drunk. My bffs will introduce themselves as they start to post things as well. I know Virginia will be doing so shortly.
For now, we are your drunkenly yours,
