I don’t think I’ve mentioned this but I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead. I saw this tag and thought that the timing was perfect since Season 8 (and the 100th episode) premiered last night. I completed two of my midterms thus far with confidence so I’m going to do a fun tag. Shout out to Bionic Book Worm who has already done this tag.

Here are the rules:

  • Choose 5 random books from your shelf
  • Randomly set your books
  • Flip to a random name and record the first two names that you see
  • Put the names in the categories listed below in the order that you saw them

The five books I picked are: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, and American Gods by Neil Gaiman

The First Person to Die in the Apocalypse – Goddammit, I got Hermione. Of all of the people you don’t want to die, Hermione is one of them.


The Person You Tackle to Escape the Zombies – I got Viktor Krum and I don’t think I would feel bad about sacrificing him to the zombies.


The First Person to get Turned into a Zombie – Fortunately, I ended up picking the Foxfaced girl from The Hunger Games

The Person who Tackles me to Escape the Zombies – I got Haymitch and, with his personality in the first book, that wouldn’t surprise me.

The Team’s Idiot – For this one, the name that came up was Laura Moon from American Gods. I’m certainly not a fan of hers so I’ll accept it. Also, (spoiler but not really) she’s undead for most of the book so she’s allowed to do stupid things.


The Brains of the Team – I got the main character, Shadow Moon. I would definitely trust him to hold a group together. He’s adaptable and logical.


The Teams Medic – Wesley from The Princess Bride is the medic. I would trust the guy who developed an immunity to poison.

The Weapons Expert – Hell yeah! We’ve got Inigo Montoya on our team!


The Team’s Brawler – I ended up with Sherlock Holmes and he’s a boxer so I’m fine with him punching the zombies in the face.


The Team’s Leader – I am trusting this team to Dr. John Watson and that sounds good to me.

I’d love to hear from my fellow Walking Dead fans about what they got for this tag or tell me what you thought of the Season 8 premier if you’re caught up.
