Book Tag Tuesday | The Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

I was tagged a little while ago by the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night to do this insanely fun book tag! Thanks so much, Beth, this one’s going to be fun. Who doesn’t like to imagine how things would play out during a zombie apocalypse?? If you haven’t already, please check out Beth’s wonderful blog and bookish posts!

Also, thank you Jill at Rant and Rave About Books for creating this cool tag and image!


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 are…

My Books


The First Person to Die:

Prince Kai

from Cress | Marissa Meyer

Well…..I know this sounds bad, buuuut I don’t think we’re really at a loss here. Kai’s fairly good with diplomacy, but you can’t negotiate with zombies and I don’t think he possesses any form of combative skills. So, it’s all good. Sorry Kai. We’ll keep you in our memories.

The Person You Trip to Escape the Zombies:

Dr. Erland

from Cress | Marissa Meyer

This kind of works out because I’ve always felt like I wanted to trip him anyways. He’s not a villain, but man, does he get on my nerves. His medical skills, however, would have really come in handy. Chances of survival are looking a little dimmer, guys.

The Person That Trips You to Get Away From the Zombies:


from Breaking Dawn | Stephanie Meyer

I knew I never liked you, Bella. I know Bella’s not malicious, but I somehow believe she would do this. Especially if Edward were waiting for her. Hell, she’d probably drop kick me to get to him.

The Team Idiot:

Charlie (Bella’s Dad)

from Breaking Dawn | Stephanie Meyer

Yeah. Yeah, this makes sense. No question. I mean, he’s not dumb. But, he’s definitely not the sharpest tool in the shed. Obtuse. Obtuse is what he is.

The Brains of the Group:


from City of Bones | Cassandra Clare


The Team Medic:


from City of Bones  | Cassandra Clare

I can’t remember if Isabelle showed any skills in medicine, but since she’s a trained Shadowhunter and she knows how to use healing runes, I’m thinking we’re in good shape! Things are looking up!

The Weapons Expert:

Jan Van Eck

from Crooked Kingdom | Leigh Bardugo

Out of all the characters I could have stumbled across, I choose Van Eck. Fate is laughing at me right now. This guy knows a thing or two about economy and strategic planning. But weapons??

I give up. This group is done for.

The Team Brawler:


from Crooked Kingdom | Leigh Bardugo

Halle-freaking-lujah. Out of the darkness comes a shining bright light. Though I would have preferred Kaz (because he fights dirty – the zombies would have never know what would have hit them), Matthias would have been my second choice. He’s the biggest, the strongest, and probably the most reliable.

The First to Turn Into a Zombie:


from Lady Midnight | Cassandra Clare


Not the baby. NO. How could we have done so terribly as a group that we couldn’t protect the youngest of us?? Well, looking back at the group so far, our chances of keeping a child alive are slim to none. The only thing we got going for us are Matthias and Isabelle, which ain’t too bad, all things considered.

The Team Leader: 


from Lady Midnight | Cassandra Clare

YES! We might actually have a chance of surviving. Emma might be a little rash, and she can be a little dense sometimes, but there’s no denying she’s skilled in both melee combat and battle strategy. She’s a trained Shadowhunter, she’s smarticles, AND she’s got attitude. It’s gonna be alright.

All Things Considered…

My group is a little on the shabby side but it’s got a few good things going for it, namely the two adept Shadowhunters (Clary’s not adept just yet in the City of Bones) and the battle-bred warrior that is Matthias. It’s a rough road ahead and we’ll probably lose about half the group, but I think we’ll make it to some safe haven where we will stay for some time before the Governor or Negan (please no) come to take us out.

Am I being too optimistic? Are we doomed? Or might we actually stand a chance?? What do you guys think? 

My Tagees:

  1. Ooh this tag is so much fun! But KAI?? Nooooo he can’t die πŸ˜₯ and also Izzy in the tv show has amazing medical skills as I remember, but I’m not sure how she is in the books. Thanks for the tag! (I might do it right away because it sounds like a lot of fun and I haven’t posted today yet)
    And yes I think you’re doomed, let’s hope there won’t be a zombie apocalypse πŸ˜›

    1. It was really fund to do! And I know. Poor Kai πŸ˜₯ I’m pretty sure Izzy’s adept in a lot of things so she’s hella useful to have in the group haha. And yay! Can’t wait to read your answers πŸ˜€
      Darn, I thought I had a chance LOL. But no, I think we’re kinda doomed too haha. Maybe I’ll just have to go solo, ’cause this group is gonna kill me haha.


      1. I don’t think I’d be better off alone πŸ˜… Maybe we should team up and build a castle of books so no zombies can come in πŸ˜›

  2. OMG, this was hilarious. This tag is so much fun! I might have to do it! I loved how some of them fit but some of them were sooooo off. XD For Van Eck, why couldn’t you have had Wylan instead? XD That would have been perfect. Fantastic post, and it had me actually lol-ing. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! And yes! Please do, I love reading everyone’s answers for this tag πŸ˜€ And right?! I was REALLY hoping I would get Wylan (or even Jesper) but nope. Luck was not on my side that day LOL. Glad you enjoyed it! πŸ˜€ Thanks for taking the time to read it!<3

      1. OOPS. I am the worst at replying to these. I do this thing called commenting and running…apparently running away for seven days. Sorry! But yes, at least you had Emma and Matthias! They kind of saved your team? XD

      2. Don’t worry! As you can see, I am even worse than you LOL. I forget to answer my comments, but mostly because I can’t all the comments in my queue haha. And yes! I do believe they did. At least I think so. Hopefully they won’t butt heads. They seem both seem to be really stubborn haha


  3. I loved reading your answers for this tag Azia, it is an incredibly fun one and it’s kind of interesting seeing how different people’s teams either end up succeeding or failing based on where the character fall.
    Oh it’s a shame Kai dies first but I guess in the grand scheme of things his skills as a negotiator aren’t really needed during the zombie apocalypse. At least you ended up with Matthias as your team brawler, and I haven’t read Lady Midnight but I’m guessing Emma is a good pick for the team leader?
    Seems like you and your team would have a better chance of surviving than me and my team would, my choices just went from bad to worse! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks, Beth! Thanks for tagging me in this one. It’s really fun haha
      And isn’t it? But he wouldn’t really be helpful I think. Maybe he would have helped to keep the peace in the group?? Matthias and Izzy have attitudes. I can see them butting heads LOL. And Emma is great! Very skilled warrioress. It’s her stubbornness that might get us in trouble though XD

      1. That’s all right, you managed to get around to it quite quickly as well which is great! You must be on top of your tags at the moment. πŸ™‚
        You gotta get rid of the characters who wouldn’t be helpful, saves room for the people who could end up saving your life! Maybe you could just throw them both to the zombies then if they butt heads too much. πŸ™‚
        For the most part sounds like a good leader, certainly better than the leader I had for mine. :/

      2. LOL, that I am not haha. I just really wanted to do this one so I bumped it up the LONG list haha XD I’ve got quite af ew more to post I think.
        But I can’t live without Matthias! He’s our number 1 defense mechanism XD LOL. But you’re right, if they cause more problems than solve them, we feed them to the wolves. Or the zombies. Whichever shows up first haha
        I’m not familiar with your leader! I’ll have to read This Savage Song to see what Sloan’s like πŸ˜€ He doesn’t seem very promising haha

      3. OK that makes me feel a little better about the ones that I still have in my queue then! πŸ˜€
        Matthias would be a good defense mechanism I agree, but maybe if they do cause more problems throwing them to the wolves would be better (if it was the zombies they could become infected and that would work against you) πŸ˜€
        Trust me once you read This Savage Song you’ll understand how hopelessly screwed I am with Sloan as my team leader! πŸ™‚

      4. There are so many things I have to catch up on. I’m worried I won’t get to some of them until AFTER I graduate lol.
        Oooh, you’re right, forgot about that. I’ll have to be careful then haha
        LOL, hope to read This Savage Song soon. I need to know who these characters are πŸ˜€

  4. This is such a hilariously fantastic tag! I really enjoyed reading your answers.
    All things considered your team probably has a slight chance of survival, but hey atleast you got to meet fictional characters! You will fight and die an honourable death beside them!
    Thanks so much for tagging me. I think I will have a lot of fun doing this one. πŸ™‚

    1. I think our chances of survival are slim but at least they’re there LOL. Yes! I’d love to meet all of them πŸ˜€ Except Bella. I could do without that meet and greet haha.
      And no worries! I hope you enjoy doing this one as much as I did πŸ˜€

  5. I love this tag so much! It never fails to make me crack up laughing. I really enjoyed reading your answers for this, Azia. And while I haven’t read Cress I have read the others.
    Bella being the one who trips you and the Edward comment. Now that you mention it I could so see her tripping me too. Either that or trying to trip one of us and falling. She is a bit clumsy! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    But Jan Van Eck and poor Tavvy(😒) aside, I think your team would do pretty good because of Emma, Matthias, and Isabelle. They could whip the rest of them into shape! 😊
    Thanks so much for the tag! This is one I had planned on doing soon and might need to move up my list now. 😁

    1. Thanks Melissa! πŸ˜€ ❀ And I really hope you get to Cress soon. It's my favorite one in the series so far. I still need to read Winter, Stars Above, and Fairest!
      I can totally see Bella tripping herself while trying to trip me LOL.
      My heart hurt for Tavvy. Not the baby, nooooooo!! I'd be okay with Jan Van Eck dying though LOL. And yup! So glad to have those 3 in my group πŸ˜€ We might actually stand a chance haha
      No worries! Hope you enjoy doing it πŸ˜€ I'll be looking forward to reading your answers!

  6. This was so fun to read!! I think having Izzy in your team is awesome, but Clary wouldn’t be of much help (unless she starts creating new runes πŸ˜› )
    Thank you so much for tagging me! I actually already did this a few months (?) ago, but I’ll definitely repeat the experience in the future (I just need to read more books so that I can have different characters haha)

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Oh yeah! I completely forgot Clary could do that lol. Buuut, I still think she’d be mostly useless until she learns how to fight properly LOL.
      No worries! And I’ll keep an eye out for it if/when you do post! πŸ˜€

  7. Hahahaha I love this, Azia! I did this tag a while back but thanks so much for tagging me! πŸ’› love that Charlie came out as he group idiot. πŸ˜‚ so relevant. At least you have Emma ‘Badass’ Carstairs to balance your team out! Good luck out there! πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜± x

    1. Thanks Sammie! And I love it too haha. It fits so perfectly. And I know right?? I’m glad that worked out for me at least. I freaking love Emma. Thanks, girl! πŸ˜‰ ❀


    1. Maaaaybe haha. My money’s mostly on Emma and Isabella for keeping us alive. They got street smarts lol
      And aren’t they? I really had fun with this one, and I love reading about other people’s teams. There are some really interesting teams out there haha XD
