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 2016Must 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
I recently had a chat with Stephen Donald Huffin the comments of a review I posted for another one of his short stories, (check out SHIT on it’s Amazon page. and read my review HERE).
Stephen recommended a few titles that he thought I might enjoy based on my review of SHIT – he suggested Perverse(“a semi-biographical sketch”), Mr. Accident, Horrid Torrid, and, this book especially – The Dumping Game. I’m really happy that we finally connected, and that he told me about some of his favorites because picking my next read gets difficult when there are so many new (to me) titles to choose from.
Because he stated thatThe Dumping Gameis“a personal favorite and also semi-biographical”, it’s the one that I chose to download first. Now… the actual Dumping Game is on my “Things To Do Before I Die” bucket list >.<
What is The Dumping Game?
As its name implies, it begins with garbage and ends with garbage, but its ultimate goal is the destruction of human lives and the dismantlement of otherwise happy families.
We get to follow along as the game progresses from ‘a harmless prank to a journey into madness‘. Whenever I found myself starting to empathize with the ‘prankee’, my inner demon poked her little head out and laughed manically while making a mental list of potential victims! 3:)
Now I need to find out which parts of this story are ‘semi-biographical’! Care to chime in on this, Steve? We want details!
