Sidekick Showcase [39] - Living Dead

Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my page. Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in the week's topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their's throughout the week as well

September Themes:
September 7th - Spitfire
September 14th - SIDEKICK OF CHOICE (It's my Birthday!!)
September 21st - Love Interest's BFF
September 28th - Mischievous

This week is Living Dead

My choice is M
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

M picture Created by Jaclyn Canada based on the movie character

So sorry I'm behind on commenting and stopping by, this picture took a lot longer to make than expected. I'm crossing my eyes I'm so tired right now LOL. It's not easy making a picture of a zombie!

M is R's best friend in Warm Bodies. A zombie of very few words in the beginning, he's mainly there for comic relief. Then, low-and-behold he starts a revolution! I love this guy. Every character in this story is pretty wonderful. In the movie as well, they went above and beyond and made him even better comic relief was some of the best one-liners.

I will post the topics for September later on Sunday updating this post, my sidekicks page on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter so everyone will know :D


“My friend "M" says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off.”

Just...ate," M says, frowning at me a little. "Two days...ago."
I grab my stomach again. "Feel empty. Feel...dead."
He nods. "Marr...iage.”

We sit against the tiles of the bathroom wall with our legs sprawled out in front of us, passing the brain back and forth, taking small, leisurely bites and enjoying brief flashes of human experience.

  1. I haven't read Warm Bodies yet, but I love your picture, and the quotes are good, too.

    I can well imagine it took you a lot of time to make that picture of M, you're a true artist, Jaclyn!

    Have a spectacular Saturday. *hugs*

  2. You did a GREAT job on the zombie picture!! I think it's amazing! I like the sound of M too. I like that he brings comic relief - which I think would be important in a book of zombies! LOL

    You can probably guess that I haven't read Warm Bodies yet as zombies aren't my thing - but I WILL read it and World War Z at some point. :)

    How was the first week of school? I hope you have a fantastic weekend, Jaclyn!!

  3. Thank you so much, Lexxie! I hope you are having a great weekend! *hugs* to you :D

  4. I know I probably wouldn't have read any zombie novels if it wasn't on my paranormal challenge, but I'm so thrilled that I picked this one because it was fantastic! Thank you so much for the kind words :D The first week of school was great. Zane loves his teacher and has classes with his best friend this year. I think it's going to be a great year! How are you guys doing with school?

  5. That zombie picture rocks! *loves*

  6. OMG, yes. M was so freaking awesome. Great picture too. I liked him better in the book than the movie though.

  7. I have been debating reading this and need to check out

  8. The picture came out awesome! I still haven't figured out if this is something I'd like to read or not, just because I'm not a big zombie fan and don't think I ever will be, lol.

  9. I've been meaning to read this for so long! M sounds awesome!

  10. Something about when he puts his arm around R and says, "B*tches" in the movie just cracks me up so much. I'm glad you love M too. He's such a small character overall, but I really enjoyed him. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  11. It's a really good read and surprised me so much since I hadn't experience zombies before. It has romance and humor so I realy enjoyed it. Thank you so much for stopping by :D

  12. I completely understand! I just happened to read it for the paranormal challenge never having read zombies before and I fell in love with it. I hope you do give it a shot one day. Maybe try watching the movie first to get a taste. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  13. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it! I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. Thank you so much for stopping by :D
