I found this book tag over on The Uncharted Word, and it looked so ridiculously fun. Azia’s team was hilarious to read about (check it out here!!), and I just knew I had to form my own YA Zombie Apocalypse survival team to see what beloved characters would help me survive the apocalypse…or help us epically get eaten? Let’s just see what kind of mess I got us into:
- 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…
- The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
- Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell
- Cress by Marissa Meyer
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Aldieh
The First Person to Die: Maya from The Star-Touched Queen
AH, NO. I did love Maya in The Star-Touched Queen, and I’m really sad to see she would die first. She totally kicked major butt in the second half of the book, and truthfully I saw her sticking around a lot longer being the first one offed. Although…she did have some really gullible moments (I’m looking at you, tree), so I maybe it might make a touch more sense?
The Person You Trip to Escape the Zombies: Amar from The Star-Touched Queen
OH, NO. NOT BABY AMAR. He was so cute and dreamy. He gave the best quotes. I would trip the good quote person. Who doesn’t need lovely quotes in the middle of the apocalypse? Okay, not my best question. And I mean, he is kind of magical. I feel like you would need that when zombies are chasing after you. Oh, ugh. The team is going down fast.
The Person That Trips You to Get Away From the Zombies: Matthias from Crooked
…okay, yeah, I could see that. He would totally trip me…but I would love everything Fjerdan second of it.
The Team Idiot: Nina from Crooked Kingdom
Okay, if she’s the biggest idiot on our team, then we are in very good shape. Nina is epic – and definitely very smart…although if you did put a bunch of sweets in front of her, it might get a bit tricky. 😉
The Brains of the Group: Aurora from Once Upon a Dream (or really, Sleeping Beauty)
Oh dear gosh. We’re all dead. There’s no hope. Do zombies like pepper? Because I might as well make myself tasty for them as they devour me.
The Team Medic: Phillip from Once Upon a Dream (or really, Sleeping Beauty)
…maybe if he had the three fairies helping him. 😄 He would look so dreamy playing Doctor, though. Oh, sigh. But we’ll still all be dead.
The Weapons Expert: Thorne from Cress
Okay, this is good and bad. Thorne can handle a ship and a gun, so yay! But…anything else…I would be a bit scared to give Throne any heavy arms because who knows what would happen? If he saw a mirror while handling a weapon, we’ll all be doomed. But I mean, he’s Thorne. I wuv him forever. ❤
The Team Brawler: Cress from Cress
AHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH. OMG. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA. OMG, NO. Cress can kick some major butt elsewhere but as our brawler? AHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHA.I still love you, Cress, though.
The First to Turn Into a Zombie: Khalid from The Rose & the Dagger
Well, seeing as he never sleeps…I can see this happening period.
The Team Leader: Shahrzad from The Rose & the Dagger
YES, YES, YES. We might be saved a little bit. Shahrzad’s got us. My faith in my team is restored…until I remember we have Aurora as our brains and Cress as our brawler. But SHAHRZAD.
Omigosh, this tag is soooo much fun. I’m not going to tag anyone, since I wasn’t tagged myself but I seriously recommend doing it. I didn’t know I could make myself laugh so hard. 😄 Also, I found it sort of epic I managed to get all the ships together by total accident? My team is so coupled up…which would be so awkward in real life 😄 I would be the person over there going…well, I have my book boyfriend here; he’s invisible but you know, look, there’s a rock!
What do you think? Let’s discuss this in the comments below!
