My 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge So Far…

Published September 28, 2016 by Shadow Girl

* 2016 READING CHALLENGE STATS * Participants 2,693,803 / Total Books Pledged 127,845,226 / Books Finished 28,625,135 / Avg. Books Pledged 47 / Challenges Completed [to date] 5,475 / Time Left 95 days / KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVERYONE!

I’ve completed the 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge, and have read about 128 of 125 books… so far – (that is just the Goodreads challenge, not Shadow Girl‘s personal goal… I am far from finished!)  Just try to stop me – It’s not even October yet!  
I may be 36 books ahead of [the GR] schedule, but do you realize just how many books on my 2016 Must Read list are not even published yet?! (not to mention my ‘don’t judge me’ list or my ‘guilty pleasure’ list – No. I have no shame).  
OMG, these authors are killing me! 
But, I wouldn’t want to go any other way.
Big, BIG, HUGE thanks to the minds behind the mayhem.
You guys are a large & very important part of my life, and I’m lucky enough to call many of you my friends. Thank you for the journeys so far, and I can’t wait to see where we’re going next!!      P, L & N   ~sg

BUCKET LIST by Dawn Cano

Published May 1, 2016 by Shadow Girl

This is a book of extreme horror.

Please do not purchase if you are easily shocked or offended.

BucketList

 5/5 Revenge Stars

⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

Let’s talk about this as the people we really are deep down inside,  not the everyday face we project to strangers and coworkers.  We are the readers, the writers, and the lovers of true horror – so, let’s not pretend that we don’t have a rough outline of what we would like to do in any number of different situations. We’ve watched enough CSI and Forensic Files to help us feel pretty confident about our chances of getting away with… things – even our host Bill Curtis would agree! 😉

What would you do if you found out that your spouse was cheating on you?

What if it wasn’t a ‘just’ a one night stand, but a three month affair?

What if you found out that your lying, cheating spouse had a three month affair with someone who infected them with HIV, and they’ve lovingly shared it with you?

Mike Hickman is pondering these exact thoughts in Dawn Cano’s new short BUCKET LIST.  Needless to say… Mike is pissed!  He is going to make sure that his wife Emilia dies a very slow, and very painful death. He thinks “she owed me”, well… she sure is gonna pay!  Like us, Mike has watched a fair amount of horror movies and read a metric fuck-ton of horror books – so he has some pretty nifty ideas in store for his loving wife.  He even pulls out a recent title from one of his favorite extreme horror authors to use as a guide… this is gonna be FUN!

Our Dawn has become one hell of an author!  Her work leans a little more towards the extreme horror side, but she is writing great books without compromising her stories for mere shock value.  Another thing that I appreciate while reading Dawn’s work… whether she’s hidden something in a little quote that only a select few will ‘get’ right away, christened her characters with noteworthy names, or just taken the direct route and specifically named other authors and/or books… she ‘pays tribute’ to the people that have influenced her, and helped get her to where she is today. I think that is awesome, and it gives me a warm fuzzy ❤

I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us!

VIOLENT DELIGHTS by Dawn Cano [and Lewis Duncan]

Published April 20, 2016 by Shadow Girl

John Reynolds wasn’t an angry person, and he wasn’t a violent person, but every man has his limit.

ViolentDelights

Your soulmate, your split-apart, your one and only. Your… everything.
The problem with true love? When they’re gone, you’ve got nothing.
When John’s wife Megan died at the hands of a madman, he lost the one and only reason he had to live.
John began a private journal as a way to battle his inner demons, and to remember Megan in his own way. My heart was breaking for him as I read about their lives together, and how much love they had between them. (Especially when he explained why they decided to not have kids! ::sob::)
I wanted to dive into this book and destroy the person that could destroy a love like that, so just imagine what is going through Jonn’s mind! He is determined to find the killer, and punish him for the destruction he’s caused.
