Watch as we gather together to discuss September’s That’s Normal Boozy Bookclub reads. Are you a member of our Bookclub? Do you wanna be? Join us over at Goodreads for discussion during the month and regular ‘ol fashioned book nerd fun.
If you weren’t able to join us LIVE when TN’s Boozy Bookclub first aired, below you can watch along and read the recap of our discussion on this month’s reads: Night Film by Marisha Pessl and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell along with tons of talk about what else: Outlander, eReaders, guys with long hair
1:04 Elise is stuck on her bunk bed and we learn why.
6:30 We figure out that we read our first “adult” book with Night Film. Surprise, it’s not YA! Beth talks about loving the way a book is bound and nerds out about the multimedia within the book.
8:00 Our first viewer question: eReader vs “real” book. A lot of us may or may not have read all or part of the Fever series on iPhone. Also, why no bundles of book and eReader download?!
10:30 Hey remember when Nikki couldn’t find Breaking Dawn in book stores for like 3 days back in 2008? That sucked.
14:50 Double the Jamie, double the fun! #JamiesEvilTwin
19:32 Bekah describes how she thinks the protagonist looks. Spoiler: old man in a cheap suit. Beth and Jamie think he’s Daniel Craig since the book seems to be Marisha’s version of Girl With A Dragon Tattoo. Cue weird dreams and Supernatural talk.
22:30 So when do the Winchester brothers show up?
30:05 TN gives it’s rating of Night Film and we give our best effort at pronouncing author, Marisha Pessl’s name. We fail
34:00 Beth is in swoon-y love with Fangirl and recommends it whole-heartedly.
37:05 Beth ranks her favorite Rainbow Rowell books from Attachments to Eleanor and Park and Fangirl
40:34 Cue our long tangent on men with long hair and how we can’t think of any hot guys with long hair. Twitter comes to the rescue needless to say. Don’t worry there’s more Outlander talk about men with plaited hair.
47:40 Don’t worry we’re still talking about long hair but now with FAN ART!
47:55 Quote of the night: “Outlander fans make Twilight fans look like saints and prudes.” – Bekah and Beth on Outlander FanArt.
50:36 We’ve read the preview copy of Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren THREE TIMES already! Bekah left some easter eggs in the copy for Jamie. Nikki thinks the cover of Beautiful Player is actually Henry Cavill and then proves it. Then we dissect the rest of the Beautiful cover men.
57:47 What are we reading next month?!?!?!
1:07:28 We hope someone brought some tacos to Elise who’s stranded on her bunkbed.

Our October Bookclub Reads
Just One Year – Gayle Forman
From Goodreads: The heartrending conclusion—from Willem’s POV—to the romantic duet of novels that began with Allyson’s story in Just One Day
After spending an amazing day and night together in Paris, Just One Year is Willem’s story, picking up where Just One Day ended. His story of their year of quiet longing and near misses is a perfect counterpoint to Allyson’s own as Willem undergoes a transformative journey, questioning his path, finding love, and ultimately, redefining himself.
Allegiant – Veronica Roth
From Goodreads: What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
Morning Glories – Nick Spencer – Join us for our very first GRAPHIC NOVEL at the TN Bookclub!
From Goodreads: Morning Glory Academy
One of the most prestigious prep schools in the country…But behind it’s hallowed doors something sinister and deadly lurks. When six brilliant but troubled new students arrive, they find themselves trapped and desperately seeking answers…and escape from a place where nothing is what it seems to be!
