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…

and whoever else wants to do it.

Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag (Spinette Edition)

I’m what you call the Reader That Judges a Book by its Back Cover. Usuall, I don’t really have time to read books but when I do, I love to read them. So here is a book tag! We were tagged by the reptile who is good at cards, otherwise known as aceshadowdragon.

RULES:

1.Choose five books.

2. Randomly set up your books in order.

3. Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you can see.

4.Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them.

5.And…cry at how screwed you are? (I’d rather dream about the bottoms of their feet!)

 

My favorite books that occupy my bookshelf:

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

One Punch Man, Volume 1 by Yusuke Murata

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

Replica by Lauren Oliver (both Lyra and Gemma)

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

 

The First One to Die?

Mickey Mouse, The Da Vinci Code. He is small and insignificant, a tiny detail of Langdon’s watch.

The person you trip to get away from the zombies?

Lyra, Replica. She’s an avid reader, but otherwise has no other redeeming qualities that could wash out her whole “I don’t really do much…” thing. So seeing her as useless, I will do what is appropriate and kick her out of our otherwise capable group of characters. Also her appearance is rather foul (I judge people on looks—it shows how neat or sloppy one is, their living conditions, the amount of money they have, but this is an argument for another time) and a bother to imagine.

The person who trips YOU to get away from the zombies?

Maven, King’s Cage. He is a demented meanie, so he would probably trip all of our zombie survival group. To be more precise, he would do that cliche plan in the movies where one person moves in as bait, and use me as the bait and once the zombie is safely SUCKING ON MY BRAINS, Maven will pass by whistling, using all of my flaws against me to clear his name.

The first person to become a zombie?

Cath, Fangirl. She’s not actually that wimpy, it’s just that I think she would be really nervous in her situation. Most probably, the anxiety will infect her brain before the zombie does, turning her into sweaty fan-fiction writing putty. For a couple of days she will live off a diet of granola bars, which I may remark is pretty impressive, but honestly not as impressive as what the rest of the group will have in store. I imagine her zombie-fication like this: In the middle of the night a zombie will find her snoozing on her computer, playing Kanye West in an attempt to relive her stress, and then eat her!

The idiot of the team?

Levi, Fangirl. Such a power couple aren’t they? The OTP for the zombies! As both of them will die first. He will make up jokes, eat too many survival granola bars, and oddly recite Cath’s fanfiction from memory in blurbs. Even if he is great with Cath, he will annoy the rest of the group to death. Most likely his bad choices will get him to be a zombie with his girlfriend one day.

The brains of the team?

Langdon, The Da Vinci Code. He is a Harvard professor! His various knowledge of symbols, religion, the Renaissance, and conspiracy theories will totally help us in the pursuit of chasing off zombies. Beside his off-the-edge smarts, he has a very well trained eye and can keep lookout for any zombies coming our way. Just don’t get him side tracked with topic of Christianity and he will be a great advisor to our group.

The team’s medic?

72, Replica. Otherwise known as Caelum, this boy will make the best medic. He has seen the nurses do their job at the Haven Institute. Fate picked him for this position is because it had no one else to put here. Good thing I found this little blurb to justify the answer: “He traced the long curve of her earlobe, and then moved a finger down her neck, pressing lightly as though to feel her pulse beating up through his hand. And everywhere he touched, she imagined she was healed. She imagined the disease simply vanishing, evaporating, like water under the sun.” He will heal Lyra, whom I tripped earlier.

The weapons expert?

Evangeline, King’s Cage. Her dresses are deadly. In our zombie survival group she will make us super cool metal dresses to stab the zombies with! We will be like Big Hero 6 except we will be much more stylish, fabulous, and deadly. Doubled with her ability to fling shrapnel, nothing will stop her from being a weapon expert. Hopefully, her rude attitude will not get us into trouble.

The brawler?

Crablante, One Punch Man. He’s big, strong, and has a temper to fit the part! I imagine him crushing zombies out of colossal rage. Also, since he has no brains, he will be a great choice for offense.

The team leader?

Saitama, One Punch Man. This should need no explanation. He can just destroy the armies of zombies with a single punch!

I tag all people who feel like doing this.
