Thanks to Kirsty @ kirstyreadsblog for the tag! I haven’t seen this one before, and I’m excited to be a part of it!
Although, fun-fact about me: I am horribly terrified of zombies. Yeah. So if the zombie apocalypse ever does come,
and for some reason we’re actually interacting in person and not online please be a pal and just put me out of my misery from the get go, okay? Okay. Back to reality.
The rules are:
- Choose 5 books
- Randomly set your books in order
- Flip to a random page and record the first two names you come across
- Put the names in the categories listed below, in the order you saw them
As for the random books
picked off my shelf rummaged for in a box (still in the midst of moving, ugh):
The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (I’m so scared for my babies), The Wesleyan Anthology of Science Fiction (I’m hoping for short story characters), The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen, and A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (which I am currently reading).
THE FIRST PERSON TO DIE IN THE APOCALYPSE:
Luke from The Sea of Monsters (CAN I GET A ROUND OF APPLAUSE PLEASE)
THE PERSON YOU TACKLE TO ESCAPE THE ZOMBIES:
Annabeth (I would never do that to Annabeth, how dare you)
THE FIRST PERSON TO BE TURNED INTO A ZOMBIE:
Kreacher from Harry Potter (not sure how I feel about this)
THE PERSON THAT TACKLES ME TO ESCAPE THE ZOMBIE:
Snape from Harry Potter (it would honestly be an honour)
THE TEAM’S IDIOT:
Sally from Nancy Kress’ “Out of All Them Bright Stars” (poor Sally)
THE BRAINS OF THE TEAM:
The Master Mathemetician from H.G. Wells’ “The Star” (this makes total sense!)
THE TEAM’S MEDIC:
Conner from The False Prince (why couldn’t he have been the one who died first?)
THE WEAPON’S EXPERT:
Tobias from The False Prince (okay, not bad)
THE TEAM’S BRAWLER:
Athos from A Darker Shade of Magic (I FLIPPED FURTHER THAN I’VE READ I HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE????)
THE TEAM’S LEADER:
Kell from A Darker Shade of Magic (I’m not far into the book but I feel like I am 100% on board for that)
This was so fun! I wasn’t expecting to get into it as much as I did
but other than the threat of zombies, it’s like making a badass cross-fandom squad – awesome. Also, all the books I mentioned have at least three stars from me, so check them out if you’re interested!
Following Kirsty’s lead, I’ll tag some new followers:

As always, if you weren’t tagged but would like to partake anyway, go for it! And if I did tag you and you don’t want to do it, that’s fine too! Do what makes you happy (and safe from zombies). Happy Thursday!
