The lovely Lissa (Rabid Reads) tagged me to do the zombie apocalypse tag. I wasn’t familiar with this tag, but I must say, this was so much fun. The idea of this tag is simply brilliant and leads to some funny scenarios.
- Choose five books (I used Goodreads randomize feature on my “read” list, only choosing books that I own)
- Randomly set your books in order
- Flip to a random page and write down the first two names you see
- Place the names in the categories below in the order when you wrote them down
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
- Insurgent by Veronica Roth
- A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
- Wendy Darling: Stars by Colleen Oakes
The first person to die in the apocalypse is: Josh Wasserstein.
This is a sad loss. I do like Josh and the relationship he ends up sharing with Isla, but he wasn’t my favorite from the series. Still, he would’ve been a comforting and humorous friend to have around in such tense situations.
The person you tackle to escape the zombies is: Meredith Chevalier.
No. Nope. I wouldn’t hurt Meredith like that. She’s such a sweet girl who always seems to get the short-end of the stick. Besides, she’s athletic and strong, so she would be an amazing attribute to the team. But if I had to, as this category demands, then I am very sorry.
The first person to be turned into a zombie is: Caleb Prior.
Bye, Caleb. You will not be missed by me. (I mean, he wasn’t the worst guy, but he committed some foolish acts that I can never forgive.)
The person that tackles me to escape the zombies is: Susan Black.
Susan wasn’t a prominent character in this series, so I don’t know much about her. However, I doubt she would (or would be able) to tackle me. But maybe she was upset that I pushed Caleb into a horde of zombies. *shrugs*
The team’s idiot is: Bran Stark.
Okay, so I know many people in the Game of Thrones community aren’t fond of Bran, but I actually like him. But he does cause many problems. Many, MANY serious problems. He may have powers that could be useful in the apocalypse, but his curiosity would probably get the better of him and lead to the deaths of others. Because, after all, he was responsible for … *sobs*
The brains of the team is: Robb Stark.
Robb has been known to make some rash decisions, but he is a fierce leader. He made decent choices throughout his life as king. They were risky decisions, yet he stuck beside them and rode bravely. He’s also open to suggestions, depending on the person. And he’s handsome. Not that it matters.
The team’s medic is: Hermione Granger.
This is an amazing scenario. Hermione in charge of anything is likely to lead to a solid solution. With her knowledge and strength, I would trust her with my life.
The weapons expert is: Professor Sprout.
I mean, I suppose this is possible. Professor Sprout’s speciality is obviously with plant-based magic and sorcery, but maybe she could use her plants as weapons. Some of those little creatures can be quite deadly, so this could work.
The team’s brawler is: Wendy Darling.
So I guess we’re all going to die. I love Wendy Darling, especially in this retelling. She shows more qualities of a stronger woman compared to her original coutnerpart. However, she still isn’t much of a fighter. But she is a smart gal, so perhaps she could learn?
The team’s leader is: Peter Pan.
Okay, we would definitely be dead. The Peter Pan in this novel is a much darker take on his original charcter. He’s hungry with bloodlust and mad with power. In fact, I’m pretty sure Peter would just try to kill us himself. He was probably the one who tackled Meredith and pushed Caleb into a horde of zombies.
This tag is too fun to take a select few, so consider all of you are tagged! I got such a laugh out of doing this tag, so I would love to see who else participates and what their results are. Be sure to leave any other thoughts, comments, or questions down below!
