Hey everybody! Today I will be doing a book tag that I was tagged in by Lia over at Lost in a Story. I’ve very excited to do this tag because I’ve seen it done multiple times before, but this was the first time I was tagged. I’m all about zombies so this will surely be fun!
- 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…
I just chose the most easily-accessible books on my shelves, and threw in a contemporary to make it a bit interesting.
- The Selection by Kiera Cass
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
- A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
First person to die:
Celeste from The Selection. I can actually see this happening, since she doesn’t know how to fight in a physical brawl. Plus, I doubt she’d give up her heels. She ain’t getting away from zombies in those.
The person you trip to escape the zombies:
America Singer from The Selection. I actually saw Celeste’s name again on this one, but since I can’t use a character twice, I chose America, since I saw her name next. Considering how much America annoyed me throughout this series, I actually wouldn’t mind doing this all that much.
The person that trips you to get away from the zombies:
Eleanor from Eleanor & Park. Okay, I could not see Eleanor doing this. If anything, she’d help me run away from the zombies if I was injured.
The team idiot:
Cal from Eleanor & Park. Well I didn’t like Cal all that much, and he didn’t exactly seem like the brightest tool in the shed, so I guess this works. Though, I don’t know how he made it on the team with Eleanor and not Park…
The brains of the group:
Arya Stark from A Game of Thrones. I like this one, it sort of fits. Though she’s more of a fighter than a thinker, she is a good strategists. I’d trust Arya to be the brains of the group.
The team medic:
Catelyn Stark from A Game of Thrones. Well she is a mother, and mothers always seem to be able to take care of people the best. And to have her and Arya in the same group together – mother and daughter – would be nice, even if Arya isn’t her mother’s favorite.
The weapons expert:
Thomas from The Maze Runner. He’s not exactly an expert with weapons. If it was running away from things, then maybe it’d be more suited for him. There could be a worse choice, though.
The team brawler:
Newt from The Maze Runner. Okay, I think this works better than the last one. Again, he’d probably be better if it was running away from something, but I bet Newt could hold his own in a fight.
The first to turn into a zombie:
Hagrid from Harry Potter. No! Not Hagrid! Oh god… how did my team survive Hagrid, a half giant, turning into a zombie? Newt must’ve used his brawling skills to save us all or something. But also, Hagrid is probably slow when running, so we could’ve just been running away from the zombies – Thomas and Newt in the front – and then Hagrid could’ve just gotten bitten by the zombies and we couldn’t save him in time. But still… Hagrid, seriously? I wish it could’ve been the next person on this list…
The team leader:
Dudley Dursley from Harry Potter. What? How the heck did Dudley become the leader of my group? If anything, he’d be the first to die! Celeste would last longer than him! I don’t care about anybody else, our group is doomed! (Unless, of course, Arya chooses him as the next person on her to-kill list).
So we started off pretty good with Celeste dying and me tripping America in order to save myself, and then Eleanor takes a turn for the worst and trips me… and then Cal becomes the team idiot, which does make some sense. Arya and Catelyn are basically the only two people keeping the group alive and in one piece, and Thomas and Newt keep everybody – except Hagrid, who they abandoned – safe from the zombies. And finally, the worst of the worst, my team leader is none other than Dudley Dursley. That’s quite the team! The only question I have is what role I play in this team? Does everybody have a role but me?
I don’t tag anybody to do this, but if you’d like to take part in the zombie action, please do! What do you think of my zombie apocalypse team? Will we survive? Who do you think will last the longest in my team of misfits? Let me know in the comments!
