Last week was a pretty terrible week for content on my blog. And by pretty terrible, I mean I didn’t post anything. Between work, seeing my godkids off to school, and some pretty devastating personal news, I just didn’t feel like being present.
But I am back this week with another book tag! The Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag, actually. While I’m not sure who created this, I think it’s super fun and if you know who credit goes to, please let me know so I can give props to them.
The rules are pretty simple: pick 10 books from your bookshelf and flip to a random page. The first character you see on that page becomes a member of your team. Write down the names on individual slips of paper and at random, choose a character for each question!
1. The first person to die?
Monty (THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE). You know it’s not hard to imagine Monty not surviving the zombie apocalypse. I’m not sure my dude would want to live in meltdown with no dances, spirits, or, er, prancing to keep his mind company.
2. The person you trip to escape the zombies?
Willowdean aka Dumplin’ (DUMPLIN’). Sorry, girl. Nothing personal.
3. First person to turn into a zombie?
Genie Lo (THE EPIC CRUSH OF GENIE LO). Wow, talk about being screwed. I don’t think even turning into a zombie would make Genie less badass and ready to kick ass. Let’s just hope we get a huge head start.
4. The person who trips you to escape the zombies?
Dimple Shah (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI). I can actually see this happening and… I’m not even mad.
5. The idiot of the team?
Luna Lovegood (HARRY POTTER). I don’t think idiot is a good term. Luna would definitely be the dreamy one of the group, still talking about invisible creatures while the zombies are literally on our heels.
6. The brains of the team?
Prosper Redding (THE DREADFUL TALE OF PROSPER REDDING). Prosper is pretty good at thinking on his feet. While he’s not the smartest guy around, he’s dealt with demons… he’d know his way around a horde of zombies.
7. The teams medic?
Nikolai (SHADOW AND BONE). Nikolai has seen a lot of battles and wounds… I think we’d be in good hands with him.
8. The weapons expert?
Adam (THE RAVEN CYCLE). While Adam doesn’t seem to know that much about weapons, he is extremely smart and I don’t think it would take him long to figure out the ins and outs of it.
9. The Brawler?
Jane Sinner (NICE TRY, JANE SINNER). I can see Jane being the one not afraid of backing some zombies up.
10. The team captain?
Leah (SIMON VS). Leah would definitely be the level headed one to take charge and keep the team in line.
So, what do you think of my zombie apocalypse team? Think we’d survive or are we screwed?
