Welcome to the Totally Normal podcast where getting drunk and talking about books is totally normal.

For Boozy Book Club our September books were Gayle Forman’s Leave Me and Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

One was the adult debut of one of our favorite Young Adult authors, and one is the highly acclaimed fantasy novel that we are super anticipating coming to our TV screens and laptops on Starz next year.

Amy and Beth were joined by Hangout newbies: Courtney and Danelle. We had a great time trying to figure out why we just couldn’t relate to Gayle Forman’s protagonist Maribeth and why American Gods is totally and completely indelible.

We hope you enjoy this Boozy Book Club and join us for the month of October as we read Melina Marchetta’s newest Tell the Truth Shame the Devil and The Regulars by Georgia Clark.

We will see you Tuesday, Nov 1st at 10pm EST for another live Hangout.

This podcast is only 3.5 weeks late. Sorry about that.

In August for our Boozy Book Club we read one of our most favorite books EVER: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Most of us read it TWICE and stayed up all night to read it.

Check out our chat about The Hating Game plus Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole and join us for our NEWLY RESCHEDULED Book Club on Tuesday 9/27 at 10 pm EST.

Welcome to Boozy Book Club: MOVIE MONTH!

In this edition of Boozy Book Club we're talking about books and books to movies. If you really enjoy book to movie adaptations, then this is a really great episode for you to listen to.

In March we read The Light Between Oceans and Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, both of which are heading to the big screen this fall.

The Light Between Oceans stars Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Wiess, and Miss Peregrine's stars Eva Green and was directed by Tim Burton. Both of them look really incredible.

So this month, our book clubbers (Beth, Tiffany, Amy and Anne) discussed how movie adaptations affect our reading of the book. How casting choices affect character as well as delving into which characters we had sympathy for or not.

This hangout was recorded on April 4, which was a big day in TN world as the season premiere for Outlander was happening in NYC, so we had a bit of FOMO going on. In fact, Boozy Book Club will be taking a bit of a podcast/hangout hiatus while we spend the next few months having weekly Hangoutlander episodes to discuss the new season of our favorite show. So get ready for regular podcast updates.

Our first Hangoutlander episode will be Monday, April 11th at 10pm EST. Don’t miss it. RSVP here

And if you love Boozy Book Club, please come along with us this month as we read Fellside by MR Carey. It’s the newest thriller from the author or The Girl with All the Gifts, and while we won’t be doing a live discussion, we will be talking about it on the blog and in our group on Goodreads.

So enjoy our discussion about using lube as frizz ease, missing out on the Outlander premiere and oh yeah … books to movies.

Welcome to Boozy Book Club: ROMANCE MONTH!

This conversation was recorded on February 29th- that's right, it was LEAP DAY!

We talked about February Book Club Books: Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren and The Rouge Not Taken by Sarah MacLean

It was a small crew- just Bekah, Beth and Julie. But we had a great chat together. We stupidly thought we'd talk for just 30 min and get to bed early. WRONG. 

We ended up doing a fun FMK (Eff/Marry/Kill) with some of our favorite Christina Lauren characters; We talk about regency romance and how Sarah MacLean writes it differently than other authors we know. And we had a lot of great conversations about some of favorite romance books. 

Watch the Convo instead

Mark your calendars for our next Boozy Book Club on 3/28 at 10 pm ET where we'll be reading Books that will soon be MOVIES: The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (BEKAH SAYS THE WRONG NAME ON THE PODCAST. WE'VE SINCE FIRED HER*) and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

It's our first Boozy Book Club chat of 2016!!! This month we're talking about Passenger by Alexandra Bracken and Feverborn by Karen Marie Moning.

AND we discuss the *drama* surrounding some comments Karen Marie Moning made on Facebook, And if you can continue to be a fan of something, despite what an author may or may not do. And what if you hate some things about a character (ala Jericho Barrons) but... he's just so damn hot you make excuses for his behavior? What do YOU think?

Don't forget to join us on Feburary 29th, 2016 for our next LIVE Boozy Book Club hangout where we discuss our favorite ROMANTIC books: Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren and The Rouge Not Taken by Sarah MacLean

We find out awesome stuff like Tiff and Julie figured it out 10 pages in, and Anne and I have no skills; We FMK Tom, Scott and the doctor from The Girl on the Train; And discuss which one of the narrators is the worst (hint: It's Anna!).

Also we promise Tiffany that Barrons and Mac are the Jamie and Claire of the Urban Fantasy Genre, and she promises to read Fever finally.
