0 stars… not the book for me!
Nope… this was not what I was expecting. It was definitely not the book for me. It may be the book for you, but it definitely was not for me. I thought it was going to be some fan fiction with maybe some steamy scenes thrown in. However the whole book seemed to be all about shocking the reader by how disgusting it could be. I was excited for the fan fiction side and figured there would be some not common hook ups but it was unbelievably crass and disgusting in that sense. I really have nothing positive to say about this one. I find that sad… I thought there would be more humor and I did not find anything humorous.
Thank you netgalley for a copy in lieu of my honest review.

You’ve probably heard rumors about regions of the internet dedicated to fanfiction-vast, unmapped territories for fans so taken with their favorite books and movies (not to mention video games and cartoon cereal mascots) that they write their own continuing adventures. You’ve probably also heard the stories get real dirty and weird. Everything you’ve heard is true.
In 2013, humanitarians Amy Stephenson and Casey A. Childers took fanfiction from the internet to the stage with Shipwreck, a monthly erotic fanfiction competition. Shipwreck is simple:
Invite (bestselling, Hugo, Nebula, and Rita award-winning) writers to rework literature into low humor, erotic pastiche, and, like, LOTS of dick euphemisms
Perform said rewrites for a well-lubricated crowd
Here, in book form, you’ll find the most outrageous wrecks in Shipwreck’s three-year history, drawn kicking and moaning from twenty- three of history’s most cherished books and illustrated for your pleasure. LOOSE LIPS will destroy your favorites, shock everyone in your book club, broaden your perspective, and (hopefully) make you laugh until you pee a little.
