Lit Lists – My Ultimate Zombie Apocalypse Survival Team

Hello! It’s time for another Lit Lists I think, and for today I decided to list my ultimate Book Character Zombie Apocalypse Survival Team. And then I think I’m going to tag some other victims to do this list with me. As a scientist, precisely an immunologist, I think I could be pretty handy in any zombie apocalypse, what with my experience in developing vaccines and stuff. I would be pretty valuable in a post-apocalyptic world. So who would I want around me to protect me and ensure I survive long enough to develop a human-race-saving vaccine against the undead? 1. Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

People can have all sorts of Graces, from cooking, to dancing, and in Katsa’s case, killing. Katsa spends her early life being the king’s goon and beating/killing people for him. And then one day she decides that it probably isn’t the life she wants, and well who is going to stop a Graceling graced with killing? You? No? I didn’t think so. I absolutely love this book. Mainly for Katsa. Katsa is awesome. A little overly aggressive, but we all have our flaws. Po (the love interest) and Bitterblue (a little girl in …
