TOP 5 BOOKS I WOULD TAKE WITH ME DURING A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
You should know by now that I am currently obsessed with this book. If not, then this post proves it. I'm not entirely sure how helpful this would be during a zombie apocalypse, but hey, at least it might offer some encouragement and brief happiness.
What to do when the zombies invade? Pretend I'm Harry Potter, grab a broomstick, and try to make it fly me away to a tropical, impenetrable island. Maybe figure out how to produce fire from a wooden stick while I'm at it. Of course, the book itself is pretty gripping, so maybe it'd be something to distract me during the lonely nights.
Before everyone freaks out (what? A Stephenie Meyer book? You serious?), I'd like to add that I've enjoyed all of her books.
Actually, no, I take that back; I strongly disliked Breaking Dawn. The movie was so much better.
Still, Stephenie Meyer isn't famous for just the Twilight Saga. I thought The Host (soon to be a movie, by the way) was much better, the characters way better developed, and the plot far more interesting. Plus, it has to do with aliens taking over the world. Do I see a relation here with the zombies?
4. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
A book for encouragements and snarky comebacks, in case I need them for the zombies. Also, a book for some fast-paced action. A book for a brief escape to a world without zombies and mummies (as Jace helpfully pointed out). And if things get bad, I could just pretend that the Shadowhunters would swoop in and save me (and then bring me to an Institute, where they would tell me that I'm actually a Shadowhunter myself. How cool would that be?*)
It's a book on survival--even if it's fiction and has absolutely nothing to do with zombies--so it's pretty self-explanatory. Despite its lack of zombies and apocalyptic action (and the fact that it isn't an apocalyptic book at all), it might still be useful to me. I mean, if I happen to get stuck in the wilderness...
So that's it! The five books I would take with me if zombies were to come and decide to rule the world. What's on your list?

Oh. And I finished my pre-God.
* Upon second thought, being a Shadowhunter would not be all that cool. Aside from the fighting skills and seraph blades and steles and marks, I suspect it would be unappealing. Killing demons, and maybe dying at a young age? I think I'll pass right now...
