Sourpuss: A Dark Comedy | Merricat Mulwray

⭐️ This is like a straight-to-DVD movie I would NOT have rented at Blockbuster in 1997. It‘s touted as dark satire, & sure it IS a caricature of campus life, but it tries too hard to be outlandish. To me, for satire to be effective, it should be witty & intelligent. This is neither and the writing is very basic. Per my Kindle, “Mallory” appears over 1K times in 300 pages. Can I get a pronoun or varying sentence structure, please? 👇🏻

emilyhaldi Well, all things considered I thought you were fairly restrained in your review 😂😂 8mo

Cinfhen Ha!! Perfect analogy!! I was gobsmacked that this book actually found a publisher!! It was awful on so many levels!!! Thanks for enduring those wasted hours. 8mo
Cathythoughts Great review.... 👍🏻 loving the honesty 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 8mo
britt_brooke @riversong153 Thank you!! 🤗😆💕 8mo
britt_brooke @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen I‘ll add this: Merricat Mulwray is a pseudonym for the two sisters who wrote this piece of crap. I wouldn‘t put my real name on it either. 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen At least it was short! 😆 8mo
Cinfhen It wasn‘t short enough!!!! And that ending 😬😢🤪 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Totally over the top, stupid ending. 😬 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen @emilyhaldi OMG, I‘m dying. 😆 The author liked my review on IG. I didn‘t tag them outright because it was a negative review, but I did hashtag the name. I‘m just glad they didn‘t comment. 8mo
marie3blue Your photo is so cute though. It advertises the book if one neglects to read the review. 😄 8mo
britt_brooke @marie3blue Thank you! 💚 8mo
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious!!! 8mo
Megabooks Omg, you‘re cracking me up!! Avoid straight-to-DVD books!! 🤭❌❌ 8mo

Reading in the school pick up line. Suffering through this #ARC as quickly as possible. 100% #TeamCindy 🙅🏼‍♀️ This is .... not good.

4thhouseontheleft I love that La Croix Curate flavor! 8mo
britt_brooke @4thhouseontheleft It‘s my favorite! 💜 8mo

britt_brooke @emilyhaldi Worse 😩 8mo
vivastory It's a shame that the book is disappointing. But at least the author's name is badass. 😄 8mo
britt_brooke @vivastory It‘s a collaboration between two writers and is a made up name, but I do like it. The book has gotten slightly better, but is still pretty bad. 8mo
Cinfhen Ugh!!! This book made me so mad 🤮 8mo

I generally try NOT to pan a book or at least find something positive to highlight. In this case all I can say is WALK AWAY!!!DO NOT WASTE ONE MINUTE on this hot mess. There was a story in here, that could‘ve worked but the execution and writing was💩💩. Mallory is a college senior, a future USA Olympic hopeful; an injury leads to a setback,that leads to a romance, that leads to a scandal, that leads to some dark shit. NOTHING good here😬rotten🍋

BarbaraBB 😂😂 8mo
LeahBergen Well then ... 😆 8mo
Cinfhen I‘m not sure how this got published @BarbaraBB @LeahBergen ...honest!!!! 🤯🤯🤯 8mo

JennyM Where‘s the do not stack button??? 8mo
Cinfhen I‘d love to create a bunch of new Litsy stickers @JennyM 🤪 8mo
Cinfhen There wasn‘t one redeeming factor in here, not even the title. After a certain scene is described I felt icky & a little sick☹️This was not a nice book or even a cautionary tale ~ it was crap @Kalalalatja @tpixie 8mo
LauraBeth Well that‘ll be a hard pass then 😂 8mo
LibrarianRyan Bummer. 8mo
TrishB Thanks for reading so we don‘t have to 😘 8mo
Reviewsbylola I‘m running away as fast as I can. 🏃‍♀️ 8mo
britt_brooke 😆😆😆 8mo
Mdargusch Wow. How do you really feel? 🤣🙃😉 8mo
Mdargusch Did you actually finish it then? 8mo
Cinfhen I did finish it but there was a bit of skimming @Mdargusch 😬 8mo
Cinfhen I actually want at least one other person to read this book, so my opinions can be validated @LauraBeth @LibrarianRyan @TrishB @Reviewsbylola @britt_brooke It might have to be you!! 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen I‘ll read it. Still waiting to be approved on NetGalley, so we‘ll see if they give it me (I haven‘t reviewed many books on there yet). 8mo
LauraBeth I don‘t trust anyone named Merricat after reading 8mo
emilyhaldi LOLOL sorry you had to endure this 🤭 but I have to say its making me quite curious. Would LOVE to read a @britt_brooke review of this one 😉 8mo
britt_brooke @emilyhaldi 💁🏼‍♀️😆 8mo

Cinfhen Hahaha - it‘s unbelievably bad, right @britt_brooke !?!? My life is rather pathetic because I really am beyond excited to hear your thoughts!!! 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen 😆😚🤗 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen I‘m trying to rush through it just to be finished. 8mo
Cinfhen The ending is totally cringe worthy @britt_brooke wait till you get to the part that sort of explains the book‘s title 😝😩😳😬 8mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Oh god, I can only imagine .... 8mo

#ARC #NetGalley I was hooked when I saw the title. And then the blurb sounded too perfect to pass up.
“Sourpuss is a blistering satire of the depraved and entitled culture that pervades college campuses.”
