Wickedpedia by Chris Van EttenPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #63: Wickedpedia by Chris van Etten (Dove on 10 Apr 2017)
Dove recaps Wickedpedia by Chris van Etten, one of the new Point Horrors, that address the injustice of the lack of diversity of leads in PH: we need MOAR WHITE MALES. And that's probably the least shitty thing about this book. Brace yourself.

The Stranger by Caroline B. CooneyPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #40: The Stranger by Caroline B Cooney (Dove on 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".

Haunting Christmas Tales by VariousPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #27: Haunting Christmas Tales – Part One (Dove on 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.
