Shadow Girl has read 158 of her 125 book goal in 2016 / 33 books ahead of schedule.

My last challenge update was on Septembember 28. At that time I was sitting at about 128 books read of my 125 book goal. Today I’m showing 158, but I have a few reviews that I need to catch up on. OH – on that note… If I post a review in 2017 on a book that I read in 2016 – I keep the correct dates Goodreads lists / challenges. Example? Sure! I just read SAN DIEGO HORROR PROFESSIONALS: HOLIDAY SPECIALSLAY BELLES, and HALFWAY HOUSE. If – for whatever reason – I don’t get reviews posted until after January 1st, my date read/finished will still reflect 2016.

Books that make you go… WTF!?

Published March 15, 2014 by Shadow Girl

From orgasms to official documents, with a little help from the internet – you can fake just about anything these days. Photo-Shopped covers of popular and classic books can be hilarious. I’ve had numerous posts dedicated to screwing with books, and have often wished that the parodies were real things.

If BREAKING BAD was a Little Golden children's book.

This time – the books posted are the real deal.

BBB’s Horror Lover Challenge – Part One

Published August 30, 2013 by Shadow Girl

I was hopping around the blogosphere this morning, trying to reconnect with everyone and get up to date with the latest news, reviews, and fun. I was on my new BLOGGER account, (http://shadowgrrl.blogspot.com/) even though I haven’t posted anything there yet. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with that one, but… it will be cool & awesome, so be sure to check it out some time!!
I stumbled upon a great bit on FreddyInSpace‘s blog, (http://www.freddyinspace.com/) that is what I’m sharing here, except -you know- with MY answers! If you haven’t been to FreddyInSpace, that is someone you should follow! FreddyInSpace is the brilliant mind behind some of your favorite internet memes – but never gets credited! All the Ben & Jerry Horror flavors were created by F.I.S. I’ve shared a few of them here – that’s how I learned about http://www.freddyinspace.com/ – through a comment left on one of my shares! I’m 99% sure that the Horror Happy Meals originated there, too.
Here is the Horror Lover Challenge.
