#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


From the Notebook: What Happened to My TBR

So, you guys might remember that right before my break, Michaela and I made a Spring Break TBR. I honestly, totally believed that I was going to get that reading done while I was on my road trip. I didn’t. (Well, not mostly. You already know this if you’ve seen the most recent weekly wrap up.) This video is all about how that happened, and how it caused a revelation to me about my reading and why I should stop beating myself up about my inability to read my unread books.

Posts mentioned in the video that aren’t already linked above:

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!

Weekly Wrap Up + What We Read 3/27/16

I’M BACK! Okay, yes, I’ve been back for a few days but now I’m back IN THE VIDEOS. My blog might not have been nearly as impressive as Michaela’s this week–like, by a long shot–but I’m strong in the end of the week AND we finally taped our Imbibliomancy video! Even better, Michaela and I did a lot of reading and there is a great selection of interesting books for us to share with you!







#imbibliomancy: Drunk Book Club with “Queen of the Tearling” by Erika Johansen

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS AGAIN! You may have guessed, it’s Imbibliomancy time! If you don’t know, this is a spin off of our regular Bibliomancy for Beginners series except us 21 year old college students imbibe ourselves and try to discuss like intelligent people anyways.

Today, not only are we talking about the fabulous Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (it’s my pick), but also TAYLOR’S GIRLFRIEND is our guest-mancer for this episode! As per usual during my pick, I yell at Taylor quite a lot but also we have a really good discussion so watch for some fabulous laughter and bookish discussion!
