Would anyone do a drinking game by reading aloud and reviewing an overhyped book with friends?

You can go with alcoholic drinks or nonalcoholic drink, whatever is your preference.

I see a YouTuber I am subscribe to do that and he reads the first chapter then predicates the middle, then reads the last chapter while taking sips of wine when he messes up.

Either the book is overhyped and so popular that you have to see why or the book is so garbage and hated that you also have to see why, the point is that you and friends read it aloud and review it and even make predications drunk or with a tummy ache simply from drinking too much.

Would you play a game where you and your buddies drink every time a mistake is made when you read aloud, catch some bad writing, or whatever it is? The point though is to read it out loud, maybe take turns as you and your friends read, review it, and make predictions about what is likely to happen next.

NOTE: This is all in good fun and I am just curious if any of you would try it. Also, I do not condone heavy drinking and alcoholism, but if this is just a get together with friends that is NOT an every day thing, that’s fine. I also mentioned non-alcoholic drinks like soda, water, juice, tea, or etc too. Those are accepted as well.

Of course! Only problem is that reading isn’t such a social activity.

It can be…maybe.

Okay, I just watched the one about Fourth Wing and it was freaking hilarious. And of course it was sponsored by a wine company. Omg I’ve got to change the name of my character! I can’t possibly have a character named Zayden now. ヽ(゚Д゚)ノ

Ehehe I have a project where I’m choosing character names based on the map. I literally have a character named Shenzhen, like the city in China!

I had a Zoom bookclub during in lockdown with my sister and a few friends. We called it “Bookclub From Hell” (quite mean-spirited now when I look back) where we read popular cheesy romances we found on TikTok. We’d spend hours at a time reading together on camera and crying, blushing, getting drunk at terribly written sex scenes. It was fun.

If I was in there, it’d make it a truly hellish experience with my choice of books.

I wouldn’t choose this at my instigation, but it wouldn’t bother me to do it.

Okay, so I’d totally do this with my friends, but um, I guess without the alcohol part. I mean, I can stomach a beer or so, but I’m just not a wine typa girl, lol.

Gosh this reminds me of how I absolutely shrieked my lungs out when I read Holly Jackson’s ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’. I absolutely love that book, it’s actually my favourite book I’ve read this year. But yeah, it was fun discussing and trying to solve the mysteries with my friend and of course, our total shock when we found out who unalived Andie.

Oh, and I was such a sucker for the romance in the book. Slow burn but also didn’t drive the story, so it was like a sweet dessert for the readers, made us fart rainbows and stuff😄

Oh god! You guys had a blast!

The amount of funny facial expressions while trying to be a bit serious reading those things must’ve hurt your tummies from laughing too hard.

LOL! :rofl:

I would also try this, but I am not into alcoholic drinks so I would just do it while drinking juice or water until I have to seriously go pee. LOL!

I would get a real kick out of my friends doing that, since they actually drink alcohol and it would be fun as hell to watch.

LOL!
