Alien Collective

Alien Collective - Gini Koch As always love Kitty - and kudos to the author for a complicated but well intertwined plot.
My only criticism is the author's overuse of two phrases.
The first - 'their sarcasm knob was turned/went all the way up to eleven/twenty' (or some variation of that statement). In the first half of the book it felt like this statement was made every second page. I don't need sarcasm pointed out/ nor should Kitty have to comment on it every single freaking time she comes across it.
Which leads me to the next overused phase that appeared on every alternate page in the first half of the book - 'you're my favourite' no you're my favourite'. This repetitive statement/game got old real fast and came across as childish.
