I’m Back and I Brought Zombies // Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

Did you miss me?ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shout out to everyone who follows me on Twitter because I was extra annoying on there the past couple of weeks.

I’m so glad to be back before the end of July! We received a new modem a couple of days ago (it has ADSL and NBN capabilities).ย Despite our ISP and Telstra insisting it wouldn’t work until we had our optic fiber installed we hashtag YOLO’d it and tried it out AND IT WORKED. Fingers crossedย it’ll stay working until a tech comes out to install our NBN and HOPEFULLY that goes smoothly. The hiatus post seems kind of redundant now because I was only gone just over a week, butย whatever. It felt a lot longer. I can’t wait to get back into reading your posts!

I figured the mostย fittingย return post for me would be a BOOK TAG.


Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

I was tagged to do theย Zombie Apocalypse Book Tagย by Casey @ย adoptabookaus,ย Monique @ That Wild Soulย and Britt @ Geronimo Reads. Make sure to check out their original posts because they’re hilarious and followย their blogs because they’re rad โ™ฅ !!

The Zombie Apocaylyse Book Tag was created by Nathan Hale and you can view the original video here.

The 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 areโ€ฆ

Because I’m lazy I’m going to be using my 5 most recent reads and just randomly choosing the 2 characters I think of first.

The Books:

Cinder by Marissa Meyerย A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwabย Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
You by Caroline Kepnesย Night Film

The Apocalypse:

THE FIRST PERSON TO DIE || CINDER
– Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Well, we’re off to an incredibly depressing start. I feel like Cinder would have beenย such a helpful addition to the team too with her mechanic skills.

THE PERSON YOU TRIP TO ESCAPE THE ZOMBIES || KAI
– Cinder by Marissa Meyer

It’s not that I disliked Kai, but you know …. It’s the Zombie Apocalypse you gotta do what you gotta do.

THE PERSON THAT TRIPS YOU TO GET AWAY FROM THE ZOMBIES || LILA
– A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

The accuracy of this though. Lila is my babe, but she is a survivor so I can definitely see her doing this to make her escape.

It’s okay, Lila,

THE TEAM IDIOT || RHY
– A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I’m honestly laughing so hard. Rhy’s definitely not stupid, but I could certainly see him getting us into some questionable situations.

THE BRAINS OF THE GROUP || KAROU
– Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I can get on board with this. Karou would definitely have a creative way of seeing things which I’m all about. Either way I’m just glad Karou is on the team becauseย her necklace would be extremely helpful.

THE TEAM MEDIC || ZUZANA
– Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Zuzana is hilarious and laughter is the best form of medicine, right? Right? Okay, so we might not be that well prepared for physical injuries but Zuzana would definitely help keep everyone in good spirits.

THE WEAPONS EXPERT || JOE
–ย You by Caroline Kepnes

This is potentially more terrifying than the zombies. I mean Joe is probably the best suited. He certainly wouldn’t feel any guilt or hesitate to use said weapons, but I’d be constantly worried about whether he’d make me the target instead of the zombies.

THE TEAM’S BRAWLER || BECK
–ย You by Caroline Kepnes

Whilst I appreciate Beck’s unlikable-ness and that she wasn’t the typical “damsel in distress” that we normally see in crime thrillers, she’s not someone I’d want defending me.

Having Beck AND Joe in charge of defense?

THE FIRST TO TURN INTO A ZOMBIE || NORA
– Night Film by Marisha Pessl

NOOOOOOOO. I REFUSE TO LET THIS HAPPEN. I love Nora so much. DAMN YOU, ZOMBIES. WHYYYYYY.

AND FINALLY, THE TEAM LEADER || CORDOVA
Night Film by Marisha Pessl

WAIT! PLOT TWIST ENDING.

WAS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE EVEN REAL?

OR ARE WE ACTUALLY JUST ON THE SET OF SOME TWISTED NEW CORDOVA FILM?

IS THISย OUR CORDOVA STORY?

Tagging:

If you’ve already done this or don’t want to do it then it’s chill!!!

Would you survive a Zombie Apocalypse?

I know I definitely wouldn’t!ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

I hope you’re all having a fantastic day xx

  1. Welcome back Lauren โค and yay for having an internet connection again (I will confess to having no clue what any of that means but I got the gist of it, and that's that you have internet again) ๐Ÿ˜€
    I really love this tag, and you're responces to it as well!
    I can't believe Cinder is the first person to get killed, it's definitely a shame because she would be one of the people I'd want on my team for the zombie apocalypse! And I can definitely see Lila tripping you to get away from the zombies, that is so accurate for her character and everything. I can also definitely see Karou as the brains of the group and Zuzana as the medic, I reckon if she put her mind to it she's be pretty good at patching up physical injuries.
    Personally I already know I won't survive long in the zombie apocalypse, but one of my friends actually has a game plan in case it ever happens so I guess if I stick with her you never know! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks so much, Beth!!! Haha, that’s the main thing that needs to be understood so it’s alright ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Losing Cinder is definitely one of the worst things to happen. She would be so useful to have around. Karou and Zuzana would be super great to have around too!! And haha yes, Lila’s survivors would definitely kick in and she would be tripping whoever got in her way – that’s what I love about her though.

      Haha! I wouldn’t survive either. It’s awesome that your friend has a plan. I’m one of these people who actually think a zombie-type disease could be a potential reality so maybe I should start planning something too ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. That’s all right โค
        A mechanic in the zombie apocalypse would definitely be helpful, and Cinder in general is someone I'd want on my team too. I like to think I'd be like Lila, tripping people and doing whatever to survive but it's more likely I'd be the first person to be tripped in the path of the zombies! ๐Ÿ˜€
        She talked us through it. I started a discussion about whether we'd survive the zombie apocalypse and my friend busted out this ten step plan which ended with her starting a fort in a Scottish castle armed to the teeth!

  2. Welcome back! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Awesome tag by the way! even though I haven’t read a few of these books yet, I can already picture this team in my head and it is hilarious. And creepy and scary of course ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Welcome back, Lauren!
    No, I have no faith in my survival skills so I will definitely be one of the first ones to die ;'(
    I actually haven’t read any of the books you talked about, but should get to ADSOM soon soon! Despite not knowing the characters you talked about, this was still pretty funny. lol

  4. Yaaay you’re back! โค Of course we missed you. So glad you bought zombies with you – I LOVE this tag. Thanks so much for tagging me. ๐Ÿ˜€ I would definitely be the first person dead/hiding under the sofa for all of eternity in this situation. x

  5. Rhy as the team idiot had me laughing ridiculously hard. I can just imagine it. And Lila tripping as she attempts her grand escape? That’s pretty accurate in my opinion, but would probably be followed by a mass slaughter on Lila’s side. This is a hilarious tag and definitely the perfect return.

    1. Aw, thank you!! I was making myself laugh so I’m glad others did as well If you’d like to do it then consider yourself tagged!!

  6. Haha I love this! Welcome back Lauren (and the zombies) ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read any of the books in this post, but still enjoyed reading it. Definitely need to read Cinder soon!

      1. I love seasons 1 and 2. Seasons 3 and 4 are okay but I just really missed Tony, Maxxie and Chris while I was watching those, and then the ending of season 4 was kind of terrible. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I watched the first episode of season 5 a few days ago but kind of hated it, so I think I need a break. ๐Ÿ˜… I’ll finish 5, 6 and 7 someday. ๐Ÿ˜€
