Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag (Arachnid Edition)

Greetings, nonexistent readers!

I have been tagged by the lovely aceshadowdragonĀ to do this tag, so check out her blog too. It’s about books and stuff. šŸ˜‰

Ze Rules

  • 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 areā€¦


Some Books:

  1. Lawless by Jeffrey Salane
  2. Keeper of the Lost Cities Lodestar by Shannon Messenger
  3. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  5. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


The First Person to Die

M fromĀ Lawless.

Nope. I don’t see this. M is too slippery to die.


The Person You Trip to Get Away From ze Zombies

Cal fromĀ Lawless.

Yep, I’d probably trip him to get away. I’d trip quite a number of people to get away.


The Person That Trips YOU to Get Away From ze Zombies

Keefe fromĀ Lodestar.

Keefe would never trip anyone! To think so is an insult. He would probably go and stand in front of the zombies to buy everyone else a couple extra seconds.


The First Person to Turn into a Zombie

Mr. Forkle fromĀ Lodestar.

This is probably not true, but I don’t particularly care either way.


The Idiot of ze Team

Nikolai from Ruin and Rising.

This is a lie if I’ve ever heard one. Nikolai is the most cunning and calculating character in the book and if anything, he’d be the leader of the team.


The Brains of the Team

David fromĀ Ruin and Rising.

This is actually the most accurate one thus far. It’s scarily accurate.

David is so smart, he could make anything. He’s totally the brains of the team, but he’d probably get eaten first as well because he has many brains and he is also generally unathletic.

P.S. Haha. Puns. šŸ™‚


The Medic

Caeser Flickerman fromĀ The Hunger Games.

Hmm. When I was readingĀ The Hunger Games, Ceaser Flickerman never came across as a medic to me…

If he’s the best medic on our team, we’re probably screwed, although I suppose laughter is the best medicine.


The Weapons Expert

Peeta fromĀ The Hunger Games.

Meh. He’s okay I suppose. I’d leave the weapons stuff to Katniss, but she was not chosen for this tag.


The Brawler

Cal fromĀ Red Queen.

First, this is a different Cal from the other Cal fromĀ Lawless. How interesting that two Cal’s were chosen for this tag.

Second, I’m not entirely sure what “The Brawler” would entitle. I think it’s someone who picks a fight and is good at it, so we’ll just answer this question using that definition.

So according to that definition, I think this is semi-right. Cal would be good in a fight, great perhaps, depending on the opponent, but I don’t think he’d be the one to pick the fight.


Ze Leader

Mare fromĀ Red Queen.

She’d be a decent leader, but not the best. As I’ve said before, I think Nikolai would be a much better fit for this role.


And Because I Can…

If I could assign the roles on my zombie-defeating team instead of fate, here’s how it would be:

First to die: Keefe (But he’s one of my favorite characters of all books ever and this is so sad, but he’d probably still sacrifice himself.)

Person you’d trip: Mr. Forkle (I’m not particularly attached to him.)

Person that trips you: Cal from Lawless

First to turn into a zombie: Caeser Flickerman

Idiot: Mare

The one with brains: David

Medic: M (I don’t think she has any medical experience though. I’d pick Yrene Towers from Tower of Dawn.)

Weapons expert: Cal from Red Queen

Brawler: Peeta (This doesn’t really match. I’d pick Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass or Mal from Siege and Storm if I could.)

Leader: Nikolai


I’m Tagging…

Plot Monster

Mr and Mrs NW

and whoever else wants to do it.


In the household of my parental units, spices are commonly used. Or should I say, almost in everything— on rice, salads, soups, pizza, hotdogs, staining fingernails, smelling up clothes, my breath, my parent’s breath and the stinky shoes of my cousin’s. The relatively not so spicy manager of a certain inn that my parents own, actually complained about my cousin’s stank he oh-so awfully spewed across the halls. Not many people like it, the smell of spices radiating from a random spicy person.

Along with the smell of sulfur, smoke, vanilla, and Arachnid’s hair in some cases, I love the wondrous scent of spices. Each time my parental units cook, my stomach grumbles like a humpback whale um…uh… groaning (Please tell me a better word for this. I don’t research whales). Eating them (spices in food not humpback whales) is better, since it adds a bit of a flavor that cannot be found in the food that was spiced.

An example would be scrambled eggs: I literally put a whole bottle of black pepper on those otherwise tasteless blobs! They are called scrambled for a reason, so I think they should taste scrambled.

Sadly, everything has a dark side, especially spices.

Everyday, for the meal of nighttime, my female parental unit puts these “seeds” within the dishes. They add a scent, but once I bite them I get a taste so bitter, so ughh, so much like a bad aftertaste of something, that I have to gag. Sometimes I don’t chew my parental unit’s cooking and just swallow so I don’t accidentally bite on a seed, releasing the monster within.

When I was a mini human of small portions, I used to throw out the seeds from my food, resulting in more time organizing the food rather than eating it. If it’s really filled to the brim with large seeds (the ones that ensure plants growing in ze stomach) I will not hesitate to put the troops in order.

In soups, seeds are the worst. Once I eat all the beautiful soupy parts of the soup, little black seeds are left on the bottom. Of course, since I don’t like disorder (of food) I will throw out the seeds, but I have to do it secretly so my parental units don’t catch me.

I have to be like a ninja.

One moment, I’m here, the other moment, I’m not.

(Was that a good ending?)
