Follow Friday/ Book Blogger Hop (15)

Follow Friday, as always, is hosted by Parajunkee!

This week's question is:

Q. What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)

(Sorry, for this epic ramble. This is more what I'm going to do if there is a zombie apocalypse rather than how I am preparing)

Haha, well I don't know about the Mel Gibson thing, but I've thought about what I would do in a zombie apocalypse many times (being a bit of a zombie fiction freak). I love this question.

It all depends on where I am at the time. I would like to think that I would have enough time to get back to my house, with my family. Once we are all there, I would make sure that we have a nice selection of weapons to fight off the zombies with (these could be, cricket bats, poles, hammers, mallets, swords lol). I'm hoping that at this point we are not completely overrun, and have time to gather up what supplies we need (these being, water....lots of it, non-perishable foods, the weapons, phones and communicators with chargers (if there is still electricity), first aid kit, blankets and clothing, a ladder, tools, hygiene supplies, important documents and books duh). I would then gather my family (this includes my cats of course) up into the attic with the supplies and somehow destroy or block the stairs. I would also make sure that our house is covered in blood and guts to block the smell of us living from the zombies. 

We would hide out there in the attic for as long as we could, and wait for the apocalypse to calm down. Then we would carefully send out scouts (which would probably be me) using the ladder, to check the coast. If it is clear, cover the car in blood and guts (again, for the smell). I would then carefully, bit-by-bit carrying down whats left of the supplies and food, and if there's any left in the house, to the car. We would then using maps, plan what would be the safest places to go (most likely out in the countryside), as well as meeting points, if we were to get lost. While going we would try and pick up more supplies, petrol and join up with any other groups of people who have made it, and then make our way into a safe-zone in the country, and try and hook up with any remaining military units. 

Wow, what do you know? Turns out I do have a detailed plan!

This week's question is:

Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!

It was probably my review of Between Shades of Grey here!
There isn't really any special reason, other than it was a really amazing and important book that I loved.


  1. Dropping by to say Hi *waves*
    Following you :D

    Here's our Zombie/Mel Gibson Answer

  2. Wow, I am so unprepared for the zombies! I need to get with it. I so want to read Between the Shades of Grey!

    Here is my Follow Friday Post.

  3. Ha! You seem to ba about as prepared as me, perhaps we would end up being part of the same surviors group...because I will most definitely be surviving as well...but I would be cautious about the blood and some cases I'm sure that might attract more zombies than fend them off! :)
    P.S. I don't know why blogger won't let me post as keeps selecting anonymous...but this is Andra from Unabridged Andra

  4. Wow, you are much more prepared for a zombie apocalypse than I! Adding Between the Shades of Grey to my TBR list :)

  5. Hi there, new follower here! Love your blog! :)

    Love your answer very well thought out!

  6. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  7. I recognise some of those zombie apocalypse plans...a bit of The Walking Dead, a little 28 Days've definitely done your research!

    New follower, BTW! Hi!
