I am, unfortunately, not drunk. But I went searching for fun tags to make up for my absence here (my presence was at Queer Science Blog) and found this via Coffee Cocktails And Books. This tag was originally co-created by chelseadolling reads and Pages And Pens
🍸 1. Wine Coolers: You’re 16 and you finally managed to sneak one of your mom’s Smirnoff Ices. What is one of your most guilty pleasure reads?
Ooh, I don’t… believe in guilty pleasures. If it gives you pleasure and it’s not morally wrong, then go for it!
I’d say there’s some trashy YA m/m romances that don’t get the level of respect I’d hope for. Comes to mind is The Love Interest and Perfect Ten. These get a bad rap due to the amount of straight girls looking to be turned on by gay men-yech. But it’s books like these that get a lot of people questioning their sexuality- so yay.
🍺 2. Beer: You’ve made it to college and are hosting your first kegger! Pick your favorite new adult or college aged book.
That doesn’t really sound like me, but ok. It’s a bit of a tie between An Absolutely Remarkable Thing and If We Were Villians. Remarkable Thing is set a little after college, April May quits her first job to become PR for alien sculptures, and If We Were Villains is set during a Shakespeare troupe’s senior year.
🍷3. Tequila: You partied too hard last night and drank a liiittle too much Jose Cuervo. What’s a book that you never want to see again (or, your least favorite book?)
I DNF’d 1984 for the amount of weight put on sex. I don’t usually mind sex scenes, but they were literally rebelling against Big Brother by having sex. What do asexuals do to rebel?
🍺4. Beer Bong: What’s a book that you read super fast?
I read If It Makes You Happy in two days, and now I’m in college #RIPspeedreading. Winnie is in a qpr- my fave- is trying to get her grandma’s diner into a cooking contest while having a difficult relationship with her, and was selected in the town’s pageant and has to go to public events with a cute boy. There’s a lot of rep in here; black girl magic, aroace ungirlfriend, polyamory, the works.
🍾5. SPRING BREAK!!!!: You’ve thrown your inhibitions to the wind and end up having a sexy night you’ll never forget. What is your favorite smutty read?
Literally why. Should I do a post about my experience as an ace reading smut?
🍸6. Screwdriver: What the most twisted (HEH) book you’ve ever read?
Ooh, I already mentioned If We Were Villains, so I’m gonna go with Bunny, which could also go with the college question. Let’s rank up the NA! Bunny is basically drugs and The Island Of Doctor Monroe set in an elite MFA program.
🥃7. Long Island Ice Tea: The melting pot of alcoholic beverages. What is one of your favorite diverse reads?
Have… Have you met me?
If it weren’t already taken, I’d go for If It Makes You Happy.
I opened Goodreads and it came up with My Sister, The Serial Killer, so let’s go with that. It’s set in Nigeria, about a slightly maniac sister that kills her boyfriends, claiming that they tried to hurt her, but never showing any bruises or other signs of abuse. And now she’s got her sights on the guy Korede likes.
🍹8. Sex on the Beach: A drink that’s great in theory, but wasn’t exactly all it was cracked up to be. What is a book that just didn’t live up to the hype?
I read Moriarty by Horowitz during the height of my Sherlocked phase (still love him, just need new content) I read another book by him that was good-ok but this- I had to DNF.
🍷 9. Wine: You’ve just gone through a rough break-up, so you park yourself in bed with your favorite bottle of wine, some ice-cream, and a bucket for your tears. Name a book that made you cry out all of your feels.
I don’t really cry, but I remember doing something like that during We Contain Multitudes. I read it superfast, more as an insult than praise because it’s told in dual POV and I had a hard time telling them apart. A better book with the feels is Everything Leads To You, THE ansty sapphic book.
🥂10. Strip Club! Your favorite naked hardback.
I don’t usually pay attention to anything naked but I recently found Olivia Defaces Books and she makes beautiful book defacing art.
What are some of your responses? What do you think of having a Drunk Book Tag?
