Top Ten Tuesday #47: Build your Squad! Zombie Apocalypse Edition

top ten tuesday

Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!

This week’s (October 22nd, 2019) topic: Books I’d Give Different Titles To.  We decided to go another way with this week again because it’s Halloween month and do: Build your Squad! Zombie Apocalypse Edition

I’m going to stick with all book people on this list.  If I wasn’t then we’d have a lot of Buffy’s crew showing up. I overthought this list and got really mad when I couldn’t remember any healer characters for the life of me LOL

RasmiraWarriorofthewildArtist unknown

Rasmira from Warrior of the Wild 
She doesn’t have any magic powers but she’s been trained for years to survive the harshest conditions.  Considering what she eventually defeats, I think she would be a smart person to get on my team.

Artist Saracia

Eelyn from Sky in the Deep
Another powerful warrior that doesn’t have any magic skills but is highly trained in battle.  Her skills with an axe might just let me keep my head for a few more days.


Artist Stephanie Brown

Inej from Six of Crows
Inej is the spy of the group in Six of Crows, she is so quiet that she is known as “The Wraith.”  I kind of think a person like this would make sense to have to go scope out what is up ahead without alerting a massive zombie attack.


Artist Nicole Deal

Zofia from Gilded Wolves 
Not really someone who will be great on the field, but I’m going to need someone who has a brain and can invent things.  I think Zofia is the perfect option for this one.


Artist Amira Aqila

Cinder from Lunar Chronicles
She’s a good fighter, but I’d want her tech/mechanic skills and her crazy Lunar powers (won’t go into those due to spoilers).

I just realized that I did an all-girl squad but these ladies are going to keep me alive!

Mia Corvere from Nevernight
I just have to go with my girl here. She’s the badest b*tch out there so you know she’ll be there to kick some butt.

Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows
Kaz is such a conniving and resourceful person that I feel I would need someone like that on my squad.

Baz from Carry On
I was thinking that I needed a magician but didn’t want to go for the usual Harry Potter characters so I decided to go with Baz. I love him so much and who wouldn’t want a vampire magician on their team?

Katniss Everdeen from Hunger Games
This is the survival Queen just give her a bow and arrow. You know the zombies are going to be shaking in their boots.

Amren from A Court of Mist and Fury
This is a bad b*tch. Those zombies better run cause she’s coming for them.

  1. This is an awesome TTT! I think my zombie squad would probably look like the cast of Nevernight?! Haha I mean, assassins would be pretty bad ass at killing all the zombies, right?! 😂 I totally forgot about Amren but she’d be an amazing addition to the squad! Great choices 😍

  2. Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE this twist for this week?! Oh my gosh, you both chose a lot of really kick-ass characters. Eelyn is such a yes! I haven’t read The Gilded Wolves yet, but I should be soon and I can’t wait to meet Zofia.

    Yes, yes, yes to Mia! She was one of the first ones I thought of when I saw this (although … I almost think I’d rather have Tric maybe?).
