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”.
Dove recaps The Vampire’s Promise (Vampire Series: Book 3) by Caroline B. Cooney, where nobody trades humans for beauty or popularity, but there is a random donut-eating policewoman for no fucking reason at all.
Dove recaps Return of the Vampire (Vampire Series: Book 2) by Caroline B. Cooney, where Devnee trades humans not for popularity like Althea, but for beauty. It goes about as well as can be expected.
Mimi has kindly scanned in her covers, so we can see some alternative artwork. I’m going back and adding them in to the previous recaps, but I think it’s nice to see everything in one place.
Dove recaps The Stalker by Carol Ellis, which feels like a paint-by-numbers Point Horror. Bad things happen to a nice girl. Business as usual.
Hi guys, we have set up a facebook page for this site. Feel free to like us on there. Gosh, I sound needy, don’t I?
Friendship is not magic. That is all.
Dove recaps My Secret Admirer by Carol Ellis with is probably the tropiest of all the Point Horrors, but has a good lead character and a cool setting.
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.
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.
Dove recaps a Point Horror staple, The Cheerleader (Vampire Series: Book 1) by Caroline B. Cooney, where Althea trades humans for popularity, and it’s kind of awesome.

Would you like to recap for this site? We would love to hear your snark. Wing and I try to update as often as we can, but life does get in the way. If you would like to do a recap of a Point Horror for this site, let us know in the comments.
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.
Dove recaps The Mall by Richie Tankersley Cusick, which is literally the best and worst thing Cusick has ever written. This causes Dove to explode with rage. Several times.
Dove recaps April Fools by Richie Tankersley Cusick, wherein we meet the worst characters Cusick has ever dreamed up, Hildy and Frank. And then we pray for their deaths.
Dove recaps the garbled mess that is Teacher’s Pet by Richie Tankersley Cusick. It may suck, but at least it has a cat in it.
The Book Exchange Dove: So, we’ve been doing some housekeeping and found we have duplicate books. Ordinarily, I take my duplicate and/or unwanted books to charity shops. However, I can’t deal with going into a charity shop, lighting up with joy at the sight of Point Horrors, only to be crushed with the realisation that OMG! What happens next??? Read on… »
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.
