Top Ten Tuesday: Build Your Zombie Killing Squad!

It has been a while since I participated in Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s (October 22nd, 2019) topic: Books I’d Give Different Titles To but when I saw the twist  TBR and BEYOND put on it, I decided I had to take it on!

The only rule I’ve opposed upon myself is that I’m not allowed to include anyone from The Walking Dead. And that has nothing to do with how pissed off I am with it at the moment. Just seems pointless.


Six of Crows – The Dregs (no not all of them)

Ok Let’s Get the Tony Stark moment out of the way early

And you know…


Now that, that is out of the way…

1) Kaz- Of Course

He’s got that damn kane (wait. is it cane or kane? look it is 530 in the morning and I haven’t slept and the moving and a break, please because neither look right and the books are already packed)… and all the knives and the picking of locks… and I don’t think the leg thing is gonna be an issue, really.

Kaz fucking Brekker! Just read one hell of a good scene in Crooked Kingdom today and I couldn’t wait to draw it. I had to draw it today! Kaz just reached a new level of wow! (ps: I’m not done reading the book yet so please, don’t put spoilers in the...

2) Inej

I think this is kinda a given- the knife work? The acrobatic/tumbler training? The ability to get anywhere, move anywhere, do anything without being seen or heard. Yes. Please Thank you.

3) Nina

She doesn’t even have to go near a horde to start smashing skulls open and tearing out brains. Nuff said

4) Venators Series- Verida (Dracula’s Daughter)

Is there any precedence for a zombie biting a vampire? I’m not sure there is but if anyone could handle it? It is Dracula’s daughter. So I say, bring her on.

5) There Will Come A Darkness- Specifically Jude

But really- anyone with the Grace of Heart

Enhanced agility, sight, hearing, senses… I mean what else could you ask for when dealing with zombies???

Here’s a preorder I’m pissed I missed out on…

6) The Girl With All The Gifts- Melanie

The thing is I can’t tell you why. If you read the book you know. If you haven’t read the book? Just trust me.

The Girl With All the Gifts (The Girl With All the Gifts, #1)

8) The Written- Farden

The Mage with the intrinsic magic tattooed on his back- one of the Written with a temper – oh and wait for it…

9) The Written- Farfallen

The wise and sage dragon… I want them both. We need transportation and I can’t think of better transportation than a dragon that doesn’t just fly and spit fire but can strategize, philosophize emote. Hell yes!

10) My Mom

No seriously. She has watched every episode of the Walking Dead more times than I’ve watched the Golden Girls, Clue and listened to the audible of Six of Crows combined. I’m not sure what that says about my mom but it is what it is. And I wouldn’t want to go on any zombie apocolypse without her…

Just know she’d monopolize Farfallen because of her disability.


Ok I don’t know about you but I think that is one kick-ass zombie slaying team right there and as long as they can all work together- ok, that might be their weak point. I think we have a shot of surviving the new world order.

What do you think? Who would you have on your squad of ass kicking zombie fighters? What do you think of my choices?

  2. Ok. First TBR and Beyond deserves the love on the twist on today’s TTT- please go show her all the love.

    Second– YAYY!!!! I am glad you love my squad!!!! I really did like them as a team- other than personality wise- they could end up killing each other.. I almost ended up putting someone from Deadly Class but then thought that would really muck up the personalities worse LOL. So yeah other than that I think this suad is pretty unstoppable! Thank you!!!!!


  3. THIS WAS SUCH A NEAT TWIST, WASN’T IT?! I haven’t read Melanie and Mirielle’s yet, but I saw the email come in this morning and thought that was such a neat idea!

    I KNEW YOU’D PICK KAZ. Doesn’t even require living in your brain for that one. xD I’m sooo excited to meet him soon! Counting down. 😀

    Awwww and it’s so sweet to add Mom to your zombie team. ❤ Any zombie would be crazy to mess with her. 😉

    1. Well I mean no matter what I think I’d love to see a zombie just try. Hahahahaha. I cant wait too! Get on it! Yeah. Melanie. That is a mind bend. Dont ever read but you absolutely must have to read bc no one should ever read the book that you must definitely read is the girl with all the gifts.

      I kept taking screen shots and sending them to mom when all the authors were talking about her lol. Shes cooler than I am
