Where evil twins and friends come together to lovingly snark Point Horror and other teen genre fiction
 
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. CooneyPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #40: The Stranger by Caroline B Cooney (29 Aug 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".

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 VariousPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #27: Haunting Christmas Tales – Part One (21 Dec 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 BaronPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #22: Defriended by Ruth Baron (24 Aug 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 EllisPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #14: The Window by Carol Ellis (8 Sep 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?
