Ep 35: Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach

Have you ever thought about what you want to happen to your body after you die? The two most common options are cremation and burial, but did you know there is a wide variety of options available? Do you know what it means by "donating your body to science"? Do you know what the most environmentally friendly options are? Mary Roach brilliantly explores the many avenues available for human cadavers, and while this book may seem morbid, we both found it quite fascinating and easily approachable. To accompany us, we poured a "stiff drink", AKA a dry Hendricks gin martini. We want to hear what you think!

Ep 34: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Hey! We are back in your feeds and it is with a BRILLIANT book filled with magic, a mysterious challenge, some romance, and not great parenting skills. We discuss what we loved, the characters that intrigued us most, and some divisive thoughts about the ending. But the most wonderful thing about this book was it made us think that just maybe, magic is real.

Ep 33: Educated by Tara Westover

I don't even know where to begin... how about a quote? “You can love someone and still choose to say goodbye to them... You can miss a person every day, and still be glad that they are no longer in your life.” Tara Westover grew up in Idaho with conspiracy-theory, survivalist, fundamentalist parents and no formal education. By the end of the book she has graduated from some of the most prestigious universities. She struggled with wanting to love her family but also wanting an education outside of junk yard where she grew up. Her story is filled with self-realization, determination, sadness, triumph, and growth. Spoilers, we both loved this book and HIGHLY recommend it. We mixed it up this week with a mocktail of sparkling water, lime juice, grapefruit juice and lavendar essential oil. Let us know what you think and send us all the book and cocktail recommendations!

Ep 32: One Day In December by Josie Silver

Do you believe in love at first sight? Laurie sure does. After falling madly in love with "bus boy", a human she gawked at through a bus window but never actually spoke to, Laurie became obsessed and ultimately made some unwise decisions that resulted in turmoil with her best friend. Get ready for a film-worthy rom com of a novel with the classic "will they/ won't they" character development. Grab a Scotch Ale if you're a Jack or maybe spice it up with rum punch if you're Sarah! Let us know what you thought of the book by emailing us, sharing with us on Instagram or Twitter, and leave us a voice message on the anchor.fm app! @dps_podcast drunkpoetssocietypodcast@gmail.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Ep 31: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

Dark and twisty. What else can we say? Well, actually we have a lot to say and discuss in this episode talking about the intriguing page-turner Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. If you are a fan of murder mysteries or true crime stories, this book is perfect. Well written, unreliable narrator, quick read, and totally worth it. Paired with "The Blue/ Camille's Tonic" which is a gin, seltzer and blue curacao cocktail, this chilling read explores a wide range of characters that are all damaged in their own way and those scars, both internal and external, manifest in a variety ways that create a story too engaging to put down.

Ep 30: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's (Philosopher's) Stone by J.K. Rowling

This book took us right back to our child with Pottermore quizzes and midnight releases and Hogwarts house pride! Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling was such a delight to chat about and compare our reactions from when we first read it to now as adults. Full of magic, friendship, and adventure, it is the perfect Autumn/ Winter read to cozy up with a cup of tea and fluffy blanket. As much as we enjoyed this one, we still had a few opinions about how some scenes played out in the book. Grab a butter beer (which we really just made a boozy milkshake) and enjoy this episode drunk poets!

Ep 29: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

The greatest terror novel ever written?! The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson truly gives you the creeps and sometimes you are not even sure why. It's unsettling in the best way possible, and even for those of you who aren't fans of jump scares or the horror genre in general, this spooky story is more of a psychological thriller and if I were you I would give it a shot! Mix up a gin gimlet and be delightfully haunted with this quick read. Maybe read it while there is still light outside! @dps_podcast drunkpoetssocietypodcast@gmail.com Please rate, review, subscribe, and leave us a voice message at anchor.fm/drunk-poets-society --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Ep 28: Dracula by Bram Stoker

We have had enough of sparkly vampires, it's time to talk about the most infamous vampire there is... he has inspired movies, television series, stage productions, and nightmares. This Spook-tober, we tackled the undead monster himself... DRACULA! Bram Stoker's classic novel Dracula is a must read, and now that you've read it, let's talk about it! We discuss the faulty science behind those blood transfusions, what the story would be like from Dracula's perspective, the type of YouTube channel we would like to see Dracula host, and who would win in a fight between the Cullens and Dracula's clan. It was a wickedly good time! So grab a shot of slivovitz and maybe grab some garlic to protect yourself. Happy haunts! @dps_podcast drunkpoetssocietypodcast@gmail.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

EFor the synopsis of this book, you can always revisit our Twilight episode. Why is Anastasia attracted to Christian Grey other than him being rich? How did she get through college in 2011 without an email address? What made these books so popular in the first place? Grab your breakfast Chardonnay and we can dive into all of these hard-hitting questions together.

Ep 26: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

We had a bloody good time on this one! The gloomy September day was very apropos to our discussion of Bella and the sullen Cullens who live in the seemingly always cloud-covered Forks, Washington. Pop open a bottle of champagne (or prosecco), add a splash of st germain and a few blueberries and let's cheers, because we have been reading and drinking together for a year now!
