*Zombies* Are YOU Ready?!

WELCOME!

For this amazing Spooktastic event I am here to talk Zombie!! Lets face it this is a craze that is taking everything by storm: books, movies, shows and everything inbetween.  There was so many ways that I could have gone about this post because the myth and vision of zombie's is much older than modern media makes it out to be.  Heck we have even twisted some of the original views.  The question is: Are YOU ready?!

Best Case Scenarios...

Case #1
Warm Bodies- 'R' & Julie 

R on Make A Gif

Lets face it, we are not all going to to be lucky enough to have 'R' on our side. We are going to have to fight the hordes and fight for our lives. In this book gone movie the main characters Julie and 'R' form a kind of team. This is honestly to Julie's benefit to start and if you read or watch the movie you will find it ends up being a good thing for 'R' as well. However, what are the chances of this happening?


Case #2
LMFAO- Dancing Zombies

Okay so some of you may disagree with me using this but I honestly view this a a zombie music video.  I mean are zombies not a being with a one track  mind driven by a basic need?  I know they are not eating your brains out but once you are "one of them," you are driven to dance.  Now not all of us are going to have the dance skills to remain undetected, most of us will fall.  Is being stuck dancing 24/7 really that much of a better fate than having our brains eaten?

Worst Case Scenarios 

Case #1
World War Z- Just NOT good

Lets face it this is about as much notice as any of us is going to get.  I mean can you picture the government saying "Okay you all need to prepare because people have started uncontrollably eating other people."  NO!! They are going to try and figure it out and control it until we are all on our own and a part of the very small percentage of people still living.  GOOD LUCK GUYS!

Case #2

The Walking Dead- Waking up to a Dead world

How the heck do you deal with waking up to the dead?  We all know Rick did it but who of you out there honestly believes you would have woken up alive or even been able to take two steps outside before being eaten.  The vast majority of us would fall to the horde.  I am not saying that we suck but 1 person vs. 10,000+ zombies...  Lets just say the odds are not in our favour and you better be a super quick thinker.  Not to mention the fact that you were asleep would put you at a serious disadvantage because you would be clueless!! Once again: GOOD LUCK GUYS!!


The Hope (aka The Rules)!

Do not fear guys because there is hope, if you are willing to follow the RULES.  Like everything survival is possible but you have to figure out how to play the game.  Zombieland has some of my person favourite rules and they are so common knowledge we can all play by them.  From what I can remember there is roughly 20+ rules that you can follow that increases your chances of survival.  The below clip was not the most rule packed clip but it was most definitely the most blog friendly one.


With that being said and knowing that I have given you the best and worst case scenarios, I am going to give you some good zombie books to read while you figure out just what you are going to do to survive.  Only part of the synopsis is posted so click the name to see it all and add it to your Goodreads.




Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead—or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie? 
........












Maddy Swift is just a normal girl—a high school junior surviving class with her best friend and hoping the yummy new kid, Stamp, will ask her out. When he finally does, her whole life changes.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real….
...







.....
As a Huntress, her purpose is clear—to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She’s worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing’s going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade. When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce’s troubles are just beginning.

In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.
