Happy Two Years!

Two years ago today we first went live with the Recaptains. At this point, we had been planning and plotting for weeks, writing our first recaps and working on the design and figuring out how, exactly, we wanted to do this thing. Because if we were to do this, to really do this, we wanted to do it right. And I think the fact that we’ve been around for two whole years kind of shows that we did at least something right.

Recaptains started out on Twitter with a conversation between Betty, Hannah, Judith, and Amber, and in two years it has quickly expanded to become an incredible force (in our opinion). We have Betty and Judith to thank for the original idea, Amber to thank for being awesome and coming up with the name, and Hannah for encouraging the craziness and offering to help out.

Shortly afterwards, we gained some new teammates! The ever-so-awesome Sana and Fahima joined the team, along with Ula and Sarah who are no longer recapping with us. These ladies, along with all of our amazing followers, visitors, and contributors, have been absolutely wonderful these past few years and have been absolute life-savers.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our little website in the past two years, especially those who have been with us since the beginning. We’re thrilled to have hit the two year mark, and we hope to continue fighting evil for many years to come!

Join the Crime-fighting Team

As you can imagine, saving the world is a lot of work, especially since we’re all in work, school or university. As of today, the four of us will be on the look out for some new superhero friends to join the team! Submissions will stay open as long as necessary, until we find the right people to become official superheroes with us.
If you think you have what it takes, just fill in the form below!

Have no fear! The Recaptains are here!

We – Amber, Betty, Hannah and Judith – solemnly swear to protect the world from literary amnesia and serial killers. We swear to protect our fellow human beings and to spread the love for books. We don’t believe in fear. We have faith that the world can be better, and will be better. How Did This Start?

Betty: “OMG, can you believe Skunk in the Trunk comes out on Tuesday?!?!”

Judith: “I know!!! I have been waiting an entire year for that book! WOOOOO!!!”

Amber: “Ahhhh! Junk in the Trunk was the bomb. I am so stoked for this final book of the series!

Hannah: “HOLD UP! You guys, I still need to read Punk in the Trunk. I only read the first book.”

Betty: “What happened at the end of Junk in the Trunk??”

Judith: “I was going to ask you the same thing. Hell, I can’t even remember that creepy guy’s name from Punk in the Trunk.”

Amber: “Don’t look at me.”

Hannah: “I think it’s time. Time to call in a RED ALERT. TIME TO ALERT THE RECAPTAINS!!!!!”

We did what any good citizens would do in the face of such a dire need. We took matters into our own hands and decided to save series everywhere. United to save series one book at a time, we became………………  THE RECAPTAINS!!!  RECAPTAINS ASSEMBLE!

As true superheroes know, you can never stop fighting crime. There’s always another bad guy to fight or another person in need of saving. Or, in our case, there’s another new series or book being published! The end isn’t near, but this sure is a beautiful beginning. It’s a dangerous mission, but we’ve got it covered. The plan you ask? We will review books as quickly as possible to prevent future RED ALERTS.

With The Recaptains, you’ll never again have to re-read a book before picking up the next one in a series. We’re saving series one book at a time!
