May 2016 Wrap Up

Instead of a From the Notebook video, you get a wrap up a few days early! Even early, May was a MUCH better reading month to me than April. I’ve gone from 10/40 in the PopSugar Reading Challenge to 15/40 AND I’m almost halfway there in my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books this year. Go me!

Weekly Wrap Up + What We Read 5/15/16

We are aware that this wrap up is late! Between Michaela’s car troubles and my senior week/graduation, this are the things that happen. Bear with us, friends, because once I graduate on Sunday there will be one less opportunity for disasters. Which will be replaced by my going back to work fulltime, but it’s okay. We’ll all be okay.






#imbibliomancy: Drunk Book Club with “Death Vigil” by Stjepan Sejic

Well, here it is. (Okay, this happened Sunday night but here the post is anyways.) Our last Imbibliomancy episode of college ever. Trust me, we’re going out with a bang. It’s Taylor’s pick, and it’s a graphic novel and … it might be the first time I get actually pissed on air since the Emily Carroll episode. It’s also REALLY good, and there’s a lot of good conversation and argument while trying to figure out how the hell you review a serial comic versus a graphic novel and a whole bunch of other stuff. Here we go!

If you missed this semester’s other two episodes:

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

#imbibliomancy: Drunk Book Club with Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Technically, this happened last night, but I couldn’t get to my computer until this moment to post the link. Don’t worry, this is just as fantastic as I remember.

If you don’t know, Imbibliomancy is a special series spin off from our main book club, Bibliomancy for Beginners. We still talk about books, we just do it while imbibing alcohol. We’ve done this throughout our senior year, doing one episode a month. For this semester, we’ve already done my pick: Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. This month, it was Michaela’s pick: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

This was one of those weird, weird episodes where we all liked the book but the discussion still got REALLY heated with debates. Obviously, that means that you totally need to watch it because it’s great.

If you want to read along with us, in April we’re doing Taylor’s pick: Death Vigil by Stjepan Sejic. It’s a graphic novel, so it’s going to be a different kind of discussion for us. I’ve already sneaked a peek at Taylor’s copy, and it’s gorgeous!
