I think this is now everything for the #Nightmare4Christmas swap and the #StuffedStockingSwap 😁 For #MakerSwap, I just need to finish one gift and wait for a book to arrive 🤞🏼

In honour of #Nightmare4Christmas, I‘m bringing back my #GiftSwapSurvey so everyone can get to know each other 💀👻 My answers are⤵️

♦️ Feel free to share your answers even if you aren‘t participating in the swap ♦️

teebe 💀 There‘s a lot but... The Exorcist (book&movie) and 🎥: Candyman, Return of the Living Dead, Prom Night II
💀 Supernatural, gothic, zombies.. anything. I also have a thing for post-apocalyptic and dystopian stories but those aren‘t always horror.
💀 As a kid, my bogeyman was Freddy Krueger.
💀 Ghosts/demons, creepy kids
💀 I‘ll read anything. I don‘t mind gore.
💀 I have a lot of t-shirts, figures and art/posters from horror movies.

I‘ve been MIA lately, thanks to school and job hunting, and I have a million book reviews to add (and hopefully good news to report) soon. But I‘m the meantime, @Eggs your #sockswap package headed out on Tuesday and should be at your doorstep in a day or two. In my hurry to get it to you, I forgot to take a picture of the package but it has definitely been sent. 😊

Another week, another #GiftSwapSurvey? I'm enjoying reading everyone's answers and I thought a lit-focused one would be nice 📚🎅🏼 My answers will be ⤵️

#SecretSantaGoesPostal #WinterSolsticeBookExchange #SSGPThisorThat #geekygraphicnovelswap #bookswap #bookmarkswap

teebe ⚡️Fantasy, YA, horror, magical realism, history, memoirs, graphic novels/comics, post apocalyptic and dystopian stories. I once told a friend that our fave type of books can be described as "and then shit got weird." But I'll read just about anything.
⚡️Maggie Stiefvater. Not my all time fave but I admire her writing style the most. She can blend whimsy and practicality beautifully, and she has such a clever way of phrasing things.
(edited) 5y
teebe ⚡️Love triangles, books where romance is the only story, anything by Cassandra Clare, Lena Dunham or Amy Schumer
⚡️More scifi and mystery
⚡️New Moon. She spends almost the whole book pining for a dude and doing literally nothing
⚡️Tagged at random: @Clwojick @scripturient @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Robothugs
Clwojick Thanks for the tag! I was just thinking I might make another one of these surveys today! I've heard a lot of Littens are loving them. 💕 5y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the tag - I‘m at work but I‘ll start on this one as I can! 💙💜 5y

I should have included it as a question for the #GiftSwapSurvey but I didn't think of it until now. So just to put it out there for anyone who may have me for #SecretSantaGoesPostal #geekygraphicnovelswap #bookmarkswap or the #LitsyAroundTheWorld exchange, I totally don't mind receiving secondhand items (books or otherwise) or receiving handmade items. 👍🏼

Bookzombie Did you draw that?! 5y
Bookzombie So talented!!! 💗 5y

There's so many swaps going on now, and I've written my interests so often I've no idea if I'm being consistent or helpful. So I devised a little something to make the stalking easier! Please share and tag someone! #GiftSwapSurvey 🎅🏼 My answers are ⤵️

EDIT: I know it's not a this or that but I'll tag it #SSGPThisOrThat in case anyone wants to use it.
