It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the broke and the bookish! To participate, head over to the broke and the bookish, see what the week’s topic is, create your list, and post in the linky on their page. This week’s top ten is Top Ten Author Duos You Would Love to See Team Up and Write a Book Together.
Before beginning this list, I would just like to state for the record that I have no clue if these authors know each other, each other’s work, or (dis)like each other(‘s work). This list was created for amusement purposes only, based on authors whose styles I think would work well together.
1. Tamora Pierce and Maggie Stiefvater – I’d love to see them write a YA fantasy book together.
2. John Scalzi and David Weber – something in space, of course!
3. Jay Kristoff and Steven Erikson – ALL OF THE FEELS. Seriously, all of them. Both of these authors just break my heart with their writing.
4. Garth Nix and Neil Gaiman – dark fantasy yes please.
5. Roald Dahl and Edward Gorey – creepy illustrated ‘children’s lit’. Too bad they are both no longer with us. 😦
6. Patricia C. Wrede and Vivian Vande Velde – dragons and enchanted forests and determined heroines.
7. Tamora Pierce and Gail Carson Levine – I would love to read retold fairy tales by these two. Honestly, any combination between these two, Patricia C. Wrede, and Vivian Vande Velde would probably be awesome.
8. Barb Hendee and Patricia Briggs – ‘darker’ vampires/werewolves mixed with ‘lighter’ vampires/werewolves.
9. Rainbow Rowell and Natasha Farrant – touching, family-centric YA coming-of age stories. Although I’d be curious to see if they went epistolary like in Farrant’s After Iris or not.
10. Anne Bishop and Sherrilyn Kenyon – fantasy romances with dark twists/themes.
Wow, I actually got to ten! Yay me. Who would you like to see team up for a book or series?
