TOP TEN TUESDAY
October 13, 2015
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Top Ten Author Duos You’d LOVE To See Write A Book Together
I’ll admit that this isn’t the first time I’ve thought about this… With anthologies coming out like MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME and SUMMER DAYS & SUMMER NIGHTS (expected sometime in 2016!), I’ve often wished for a collaboration of some of those authors within the same anthology. And when I go to events like the Fierce Reads tour where some of my favorite authors are all in the same place, I start to imagine what it’d be like if these authors got together and wrote together. Who are my dream teams? Check ’em out!
- Marissa Meyer and Leigh Bardugo: They don’t have super similar writing styles but I would be lying if I said I hadn’t wondered what would happen if two of my favorite authors got together to work on one book! I’d love to see how their styles blend, mesh, and stand apart from each other all in one novel.
- Gayle Forman and Rainbow Rowell: I consider these two ladies some of the masters of the more serious contemporary books and I would absolutely love to see a story from the both of them. Dual POVs from two main characters? That would be amazing.
- Maggie Stiefvater and Laini Taylor: CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE.
- Sarah J. Maas and Robin LaFevers: Gorgeous world building, excellent character development, a fantastic feel, and layering plots. Yes, please!
- Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson: Oh, the fantasy worlds these two could create.
- Stephanie Perkins and Kasie West: Smoosh all of the adorable into one book. I’d have a book hangover for daysssss.
- Erica O’Rourke and Karen Akins: How fun and fantastic would these two be together? I can picture some amazing sci-fi worlds with some sassy and strong YA heroines.
- Liz Czukas and Lauren Morrill: More of all of the adorable!
- Robin Benway and Leila Howland: I think these two authors could be great together! I totally get the same sort of vibe from EMMY & OLIVER and NANTUCKET BLUE.
- Ernest Cline, Aime Kaufman, and Jay Kristoff: So this is three authors BUT Aime & Jay wrote a book together already… so can that count as one and we add Ernest Cline in? Oh boy. We’d all be wrecked.
