Dove

I am the evil twin. I'm in a feud with Richie Tankersley Cusick, and I'm waging a war on over-used en-dashes and ellipsis. All of these things are related. I worship at the altar of the ISUZU TROOPER, BITCHES.
The Stranger by Caroline B. Cooney

Recap #40: The Stranger by Caroline B Cooney by on 29 August 2016

Dove recaps The Stranger by Caroline B Cooney, which turns out to be an unexpected joy. It is basically Twilight, except the Bella character is not an energy-sucking void, and the Edward character is cursed with an *actual curse*, rather than “tragically attractive and awfully good at everything he does”.

Recap #30: Help Wanted by Richie Tankersley Cusick by on 13 June 2016

Dove recaps Help Wanted by Richie Tankersley Cusick and has to resort to bullet points, as this book has a lot going on, most of which is silly, pointless, or offensive.

Haunting Christmas Tales by Various

Recap #27: Haunting Christmas Tales – Part One by on 21 December 2015

Dove recaps the first half of Haunting Christmas Tales by various authors. Don’t be misled by the summary, there is no framing story. Neither should the 13 series in Point Horror give you unrealistic expectations about the quality of these stories. They’re pretty average.

Defriended by Ruth Baron

Recap #22: Defriended by Ruth Baron by on 24 August 2015

Dove recaps Defriended by Ruth Baron, which was written by the one person on the planet who has never heard of catfishing, and actually expects us to believe that the dead use Facebook. In a series known for being a massive tease when it comes to the supernatural. Ruth Baron can just fuck off. I hate this book.

The Window by Carol Ellis

Recap #14: The Window by Carol Ellis by on 8 September 2014

Dove recaps The Window by Carol Ellis, which was awesome back in the 90s, because of the cool location, the big cast, and my low standards. Is it still awesome now, or is it as dull as being forced to sit in a cabin in the mountains alone every day thanks to a broken ankle?

Dove recaps the very best in the Arcadia series, #3: The Pool by T. S. Rue, where we have irresponsible lifeguards, slack work ethics, surprise returned-from-the-dead characters, and also MOTHERFUCKING PIRANHAS. Yes, you read that right. PIRANHAS. This book is the greatest.
