Top Ten Tuesday

Five author duo’s I would love to see write a book together

Do you ever see two authors and think ‘if they write a book together, it would probably be super awesome’? Well, I personally don’t have that, but I decided to look at some of my favourite authors and see if some of them could get paired off to write a book together. I’ve decided to put these together based on the books that they’ve written. Top Ten Tuesday is organised by the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish and has a different subject every week.

  1. Ransom Riggs and Tahereh Mafi – Didn’t see that coming did you? Well, obviously you did. Two years ago, it was announced that these two authors had gotten married. I was kinda surprised, but also very happy because I’d read books of both of them and enjoyed them a lot. So yeah I guess that after getting married, they could make a book together. Maybe the characters from Shatter Me could meet up with the Miss Peregrine characters? That would be cool!
  2. Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo – Both created amazing worlds with even amazinger (that’s a word now, deal with it) characters. Maybe they could join forces and create the most amazing world with the best characters ever. It would definitely be a fantasy; with fairies perhaps, or people with magical powers. Or both. 😉
  3. Rick Riordan and Joanne Harris – If Rick hadn’t released a book about Norse gods already, I would have had them working together on a Norse mythology series. Maybe Joanne can help him out during the other books in the Magnus Chase series? That would be awesome. Or they can just pick a new mythology to write about!
  4. Kendare Blake and James Dawson – They both write spooky books, and maybe they can pick a (‘real’) ghost story and write a book about that, or a series. That would be super cool, more scary stories from two really good authors!
  5. John Green and Jesse Andrews – Going on the fact that they’ve both written good books about cancer – okay maybe that is a bit weirdly phrased, but you get what I mean, right – they can write a book together. It would probably be super funny, super awkward but also – perhaps – sad as hell. Yes, take all my money and write a book together, please!

And I’m going to fill up the rest of this post with books of multiple authors that I still need to read.
