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

COUGARS, COOKIES AND CONSTRUCTION: THE THINGS I SEE UP HERE by Jack Chaser

Published February 1, 2016 by Shadow Girl

“No one looks up anymore. They’re always looking at their phones or their feet or the back of the person they are stalking.”   ~ Jack Chaser

“Lions and tigers and bears my ass!” ~ Jack Chaser

“There’s a whole different world you see from the rooftops that no one ever thinks about. You can see things no one realizes. Like people fighting trees. Or flying sex toys. Or cougars on the prowl. Baseball games and peanut butter cookies.” 

“Take a look inside. There’s a whole new world to see when you see the things I see up here.”     ~ Jack Chaser

 

Cougars, Cookies and Construction is written by one of my very favorite WP blogger buddies, Jack Chaser from The Things I See Up Here.

I’ve posted/reblogged some of Jack’s writing here before. His horror story SERIAL was featured during Coffin Hop 2013 – and I’ve been dying to read more ever since! (You can click HERE to read part one of SERIAL, then follow the links to read the additional segments, up to it’s horrifying conclusion!)

I married into a family of contractors, so Jack’s blog has been a constant source of entertainment for me and The Dark Defender. Now we have an entire book filled with seventeen years worth of on the job shenanigans! Read at your own risk – most of these stories could cause you to fall onto the floor laughing, or break a rib trying NOT to laugh in the middle of the night. But… amid the tales of dildo wars & bathroom emergencies are heartwarming insights into human nature – kindness, friendship, family, and A Legacy of Heroes.


Pick up your copy of Cougars, Cookies and Construction: The Things I See Up Heregrab a beer,  and  join us around the campfire… Jack Chaser has some stories to tell!

Cougars, Cookies and Construction: The Things I See Up Here by Jack Chaser

Published November 20, 2015 by Shadow Girl

SQUEE!!  Look what Shadow Girl finally got her paws on…

Hey !
Yes, you.
I bet you didn’t see me up here but you can bet I saw you.
No one looks up anymore. Always looking at their phones or their feet or the back of the person they are stalking.

There’s a whole different world you see from the rooftops that no one ever thinks about. You can see things no one realizes. Like people fighting trees. Or flying sex toys. Or cougars on the prowl. Baseball games and peanut butter cookies.

Take a look inside. There’s a whole new world to see when you see the things I see up here.

Cougars, Cookies and Construction is written by one of my very favorite WP blogger buddies, Jack Chaser from The Things I See Up Here.

I’ve posted some of his writing on BBBB before. His horror story SERIAL was featured here during Coffin Hop – and I’ve been dying to read more ever since! You can click HERE to read part one of SERIAL, then follow the links to read the additional segments, up to it’s horrifying conclusion!

The Things I See Up Here is a constant source of belly laughs for me and The Dark Defender, and I’ve reblogged some of my favorite posts many, many times! So, you can imagine my joy when he released Cougars, Cookies, and Construction! It includes new stories and shenanigans from the job, as well as a few of our old favorites… ‘Flying sex toys,  cougars on the prowl, baseball games and peanut butter cookies’.

Stay tuned, you know I’ll review it here when I’m done!!

 

Trying New Reviewing Formats, And Naming Them

Published November 19, 2015 by Shadow Girl

Reviewing short stories can be difficult.
It is hard to tell you about a story, and what I love about it, without posting non-intentional spoilers.
The Haiku Review is always fun, but I can’t always fit my thoughts, (and my obvious hilarity), into the required 5/7/5/ format.

Haiku Review for BECOMING... by Jacob Rayne

Haiku Review for BECOMING… by Jacob Rayne

We all know how much I adore my photo editing software, and how I try to incorporate it into my (longer) reviews. But… what about a picture in lieu of a written review altogether? (“What about a picture in lieu of a written review?”)  ::collective groan::
Let’s give it a shot!! (I already did – which is what brought on this seemingly random group of thoughts. (Watch for the review post for one of Bradley Poage’s Bedtime Tales of Horror. Gimmie five minutes!)
Do you want to help me think of a catchy tag (ie: Haiku Review)? Please post your thoughts & ideas in the comments 🙂
