Drunk On Books

Welcome to Drunk On Books, a podcast for the drunken reader in you. Lolo, Valkyrie, and sometimes their guests will discuss a book over their favorite cocktails (or drinks they attempted to create and failed miserably, but we don’t believe in wasting liquor). So join us as we attempt to navigate the literary world under the influence of alcohol, but please don’t ask us to say our ABCs backwards. Please be forewarned that this podcast is NSFW and full of all types of shenanigans. There’s honestly no telling what might come out of our mouths.

Join us as we discuss “The Devourers” by Indra Das, a book where we end up with more questions than answers about these shapeshifters, but there’s one main conclusion: It’s a love triangle where they all eat each other, but not in the way that you expect. Valkyrie once again proves that she can’t go a single episode without singing and *MIC SCRATCH* what the hell did Lolo just say about “p****”?!  .


Our next book is Three Two One by J.A. Huss so put on your “what the fuck is this mess?” hats because it’s a wild ride...
