Wickedpedia by Chris Van Etten

Recap #63: Wickedpedia by Chris van Etten by on 10 April 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. 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

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.
