So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.
I’m dubious. I should read a passage:
It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
You have some explaining to do, Canada.
Vanessa Edgington thinks her sexy friend Molly is just joking around about the supernatural being known as the Slenderman… until she discovers the horrifying secret for herself.
to boldly go something or other, am i right

Anonymous sent: Have you heard of the evermore books? I think theres six of them and theyre not as bad as most of the stuff you read but they literally exploit every fantasy cliche.
(cont’d) The social outcast who lost her family, the enemy who is a huge bitch and wants her boyfriend and the misterious dark haired guy whos new at her school and sits next to her, its just glorious
i actually read the first one when it came out and i remember being pretty unfazed about it… as you said it’s not as bad as what i tend to read for this blog but it was pretty standard YA lit (which is never a good thing)
i had no idea there were more but according to my goodreads account i also read book #2? I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER BUYING IT
man it must have been a gr9 book

Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy’s next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she’s fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. And Mercy’s connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water…
is this gonna be another marked-style book because i’m not doing that again
i guess i could read it though
so it’s hotter than satan’s butthole and i’m sitting on the rooftop with cheap sangria and my regrets, blasting veggie tales songs because at some point my life went very wrong, and all of a sudden i’m thinking; hey, remember the tons of badlit you downloaded and never actually got around to reading because being a teacher is actually a terrible job that drains the life out of you?
well, here we go
Businessman Paul is on a beachside vacation to unwind and enjoy the sun, the sand and the surf - sometimes from below the waves. While scuba diving, he encounters a trio of cuttlefish that turn out to be much more than they seem: they’re shapeshifters, and they want Paul for their own! Warning: 18+ only! Contains partial shifting, hot gay sex, and a cuttlefish shifter gangbang!
sure why not
CW: racism, ableist language, slutshaming, body policing, i don’t even know anymore, this book is just lovely really.

AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE TO ADD CWs TO A REVIEW
