Thanks The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in the Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag! Their blog is very witty and amazing and I always read their posts. I’ve been more interesting in writing Christmas-related blog posts recently, but today I thought that I would just write something quick to post.
- Choose 5 books!
- Randomly set up your books in order.
- Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
- Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them!
- Cry at how screwed you are…
The books that I randomly grabbed off my shelf are Geekerella by Ashley Poston, Atonement by Ian McEwan, Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, On of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus, and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.
THE FIRST PERSON TO DIE: Sage (Geekerella) is the first one to die. Oh, no! I really liked Sage. She was only a side character in this book, so I guess it makes sense.
THE PERSON YOU TRIP TO ESCAPE THE ZOMBIES: Elle (Geekerella) is the person I am going to trip to escape the zombies. What a harsh thing to do! Her character is also great, and she’s been through enough already.
THE PERSON THAT TRIPS YOU TO GET AWAY FROM THE ZOMBIES: Briony (Atonement) is the person who’s going to trip me. That completely makes sense, she is an awful character and would totally do something like that.
THE FIRST PERSON TO TURN INTO A ZOMBIE: Cecilia (Atonement) will be the first to turn into a zombie. Tough luck, Cecilia! I didn’t really like any of the characters in Atonement.
THE TEAM IDIOT: Daisy (Turtles All the Way Down) is the team idiot. What a fluke, she is the type of character who would be the team idiot!
THE BRAINS OF THE GROUP: Holmsey aka Aza (Turtles All the Way Down) is the brains of the group. In the book, Aza is quite smart and gets consistently good grades.
THE TEAM MEDIC: Jake (One of Us is Lying) is the team medic. Hmm…Jake sucks, so I don’t see that happening!
THE WEAPONS EXPERT: Bronwyn (One of Us is Lying) is the weapons expert. I think Bronwyn could easily be the weapons expert! She’s depicted as the “brains”, so it would work.
THE BRAWLER: Baz (Carry On) is the brawler. He fights a little in Carry On! A vampire fighting zombies seems normal.
THE TEAM LEADER: Simon (Carry On) is the team leader. Well, he is the chosen one – he must be a good leader.
Feel free to have a go at the tag if you would like! Please do not feel obliged.
Do you think these characters would do well in a zombie apocalypse?
