November’s book pick for the Bad People podcast (available wherever you listen to podcasts) is The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See. This custom cocktail was easily one of our favorites; made with a tea cake, Pellegrino, spices, and whiskey. It was so delicious!

We’ve said so many times how great it is to get together for a fun unboxing, always anxious to see what the book is, and especially what the cocktail is. Each drink card comes with a list of ingredients (which are included in the box), how to make it, and then details about how the drink relates to the book based on its origin. Interesting, right?!

I have a few friends I think this box will be the perfect Christmas gift for. It’s such a fun, unique concept. Last year, my husband gifted me a subscription box that I’d had my eye on for awhile, and let me tell you, it is so fun to get gifts even after the holidays are over. There are so many good options out there, but Bad People Book Club is pretty perfect to send to just about any one, or even for yourself!

We were able to buddy read Erotic Stories of Punjabi Widows for the Bad People podcast (available wherever you listen to podcasts), and had such a great time reading and discussing the book with Abbey! This book is really a treat and packed full of so much (you’ll have to listen to the podcast to hear all of our thoughts), definitely recommend.

Having read the book before the box arrived, we were super excited to see how the cocktail would pair with the novel. It was a unique concoction, but a delightful one. It’s always so fun to bring the book to life through a dinner party, a cocktail pairing, book club… whatever suits you.

We’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Bad People community, reading the books they select, listening to Abbey and AJ’s discussion on each book through the podcast, and getting to try their custom cocktails. We’ve said before how much we love that this subscription doesn’t come with extra things to clutter our homes, but all the good stuff we will appreciate and talk about time and again. It’s an experience, and that’s everything.

Bad People Book Club | September 2018

Pairing drinks with books is something we’ve been doing for awhile now. Sometimes, we just don’t have the time or ability to throw a dinner party, but want a fun experience with a book, and this is a really great way to do it.

If a book doesn’t have an obvious drink of choice, it can prove challenging to decide what might pair best. You have to think of the season, food mentions, and other details from the book that might fit. Since most of the time, you aren’t trying to come up with all of that yourself, we fully support a Bad People Book Club subscription.

This subscription is a no-fuss type of goodie box that comes with a carefully selected book highlighting diverse, strong female authors and a custom cocktail to go with it. The box arrives with the book and cocktail ingredients (sans alcohol) along with a recipe card—and just like that, you’re ready for a good time! The card also has discussion points on it that pairs with their podcast on the book, which we really enjoy.

This particular box was enjoyed with good company, and a drink we all loved and made all night long! Getting an excuse to sit down, sip on something delicious, and talk about books is always a really good time. We really appreciate the partnership we’ve gotten to have with Bad People Book Club, and we encourage you to give it a try!

The day our Bad People Book Club box arrives cues a flurry of texts between us trying to figure out the soonest possible date that we can get together to open it. Books + cocktails? What's not to love. You guys know how much we love to pair drinks with books we love! This month we received Homefire and all the ingredients to mix up a very tasty drink.

We always have such a good time unboxing, reading about the book, and discovering the drink of choice and how it connects to the chosen novel. We thoroughly enjoy the taste testing part, too! We've said it before, and we'll say it again, our favorite part of literary dinner parties, or subscription boxes, or any of it, is the way they allow us to sit down together and connect over bookish conversation. Bonus points if we have a tasty food or drinks!

This box is especially great because it's simple; we aren't left with anything we won't use, and their book choices are completely on point with what we've been loving lately: diverse books with strong ladies! Even with the best of intentions, many boxes are filled with goodies that have little utilitarian purpose. While it's fun, it adds up if you do multiple months of a subscription. Enter, The Bad People Book Club, because we are fully on board for a fun cocktail every month as we crack open a great new book!
