It was an interesting book with a good story line. What I didn’t like about the characters that sometimes they would behave like teenagers when some of the were already mid age. And main characters rants where too long and would get boring.

This book is about a group of women who all have been victimized by violent men & have watched others die in front of them. It uses the slasher film as a model for the stories of each woman and the tie that binds them to one another. It was a fun read but not terribly scary. I didn’t care for any of the characters and I felt that the different things like excerpts from articles and emails and such took away from the story instead of adding to it - they were distracting to me and broke up the story in a way I didn’t like.

Not my favorite Hendrix.

For Jeri (spoilers):
This was about a support group for girls who had survived a killer, when everyone else - sometimes their family- did not. The main character thinks it is their group leader Dr. who is killing everyone and tries to protect the remaining girls by kidnapping one. They end up at some terrible place belonging to one of the other final girls who has a gimp bf to kill people for money from murder fans. Grotesque. No one is a hero here, and the killer is actually the son of the Dr. and a girl.

i think more 3.5?

the huge homage to famous horror movie series was really cute but also bothered me a ton bc i wanted new and inventive final girl origin stories :/

Lynette’s was super upsetting but also my favorite of them!
