#CreepyChristmas @teebe

1️⃣ Epic Fantasy/Coming of Age.
2️⃣ None ........ 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣😂
3️⃣ Goosebumps ...... Readers Beware 😬🤪
4️⃣ Either or, Doesn‘t bother me.
5️⃣ Horror Book or Horror Movie?

As you can see I‘m not a fan of Horror 😂🤷🏼‍♂️
Thanks for the Tag @LoverOfLearning

LoverOfLearning I prefer the horror book for sure 4w
Twainy #6 - Book because they are more intimate & last longer. Movies are more social but it‘s difficult to find people who want to see them. 4w
teebe 😅 I cannot and will not choose between the two 4w
ulrichyumiodd Horror book! I don‘t usually watch horror movies - especially if they rely on scare jumps. 4w

#LitsyLearn @Alora

1a. I served in the British Army for 10 years.
1b. My current job is still military related.
1c. I hate pizza 😏😏😏

2. The Lord of The Rings. Just can‘t take to it!

3. Nope 🙁

4. Too cold, it‘s easy to warm yourself up, but trying to cool down is a pain in the ass!!

Kaylamburson I'm going to guess that you no longer have a military related job, so 1B is the lie. 4w
Alora Hello! Thank you for playing! 💙💙 Did you enjoy the LOTR movies, or neither?! I‘ve never read the books but I like the movies a lot. 4w
Alora I‘m going to guess the lie is that you like pizza?! 4w

DannyHattan 🤦🏻‍♂️😂 no @Kaylamburson I do. I put them in order. I need to make that clearer 🤷🏼‍♂️🤣 4w
DannyHattan @Alora I liked the movies, at the time they where the first large budget Epic Fantasy. I‘ve grown to dislike them too though 🤦🏻‍♂️ 4w
Kaylamburson I totally read the last one as the opposite and I was thinking no one hates pizza, so didn't pick it 🤣😂. Guessing is all part of the fun, lol 4w

Pickpick

💥 I received a copy of this book for a free and impartial review 💥

Loved it, the originality is great. A very refreshing Sci Fi book that caters to the purist and maverick. I‘d hate to spoil the story but the style is well suited to the story and the depth of characters and world building is also great. 👌🏻🙌🏻 A solid 4 ⭐️
