Hop and Follow

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

My favorite post from last week was my review about Unwind by Neal Shusterman. I love it because of how much I loved the book and because I discovered Shusterman as a writer. He's wonderful at dystopias.

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.)

Luckily I have three students who are obsessed with zombies. They have done several journal entries and written several how to manuals about zombies. First - if no real gun is available - I am to get a water gun and fill it with gasoline and get a set of matches... Next I am to get as much water as I can so I can store it (Wouldn't want the zombies to hear the pipes). I also have a map of my house to identify all possible ways out including through windows. And because my house is big, my students have decided that my house is to be a safe house, so when the
comes, they are all going to show up. They are also insisting that I buy a lot of camo and camo paint. So if this ever happens, because of my students, I'll be safe.


  1. You're lucky to have such a resource on zombies! ;) Stopping in to say hello for the Friday blog hops. I'm a new follower. Have a lovely Friday!!

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

  3. Awesome! What would we do without those students. I love it! Tell them thanks for the advice.

  4. Sounds like you are well safe, no zombie will get to you. Loving the camo paint and matches idea. :D

    Hopped over from the blog hop, new follower. :D

  5. Wow! So regular guns kill zombies? I learn something new everyday.

  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!
