Happy Tuesday! This week's theme for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Author Duos I'd Love To See Write A Book Together. This is sure to be an interesting one. I'm pairing authors together that are currently living, except for my bonus choice. My list is in alphabetical order by last name of the first author of the pairing, and I'm including a photo of a book from each that has inspired the team up. Here we go!
Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins - You could expect lots of unreliable narrators and mind-bending twists!
Stephen King and John Ajvide Lindqvist - I'm already having nightmares about their potential work together...
Marissa Meyer and Anne Ursu - I can imagine a great fairy tale retelling that puts a whole new spin on a familiar story.
Rainbow Rowell and Adi Alsaid - Sounds like a winning Contemporary YA combination to me.
Darren Shan and Jonathan Maberry - This could be a great shiver inducing author pair up.
Maggie Stiefvater and Laini Taylor - I'm kind of disappointed that this hasn't already happened.
Sabaa Tahir and Eleanor Herman - These two skilled storytellers would put the epic in epic fantasy.
Rob Thurman and Stephen Blackmoore - I would read any urban fantasy they would care to write in a heart beat.
Scott Westerfeld and Gail Carriger - Even though these two have written different types of steampunk set in different eras, I would love to see what kind of steampunk they could come up with if they put their heads together!
Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson - Both of these authors have since passed away (RIP Henning Mankell, October 5th, 2015), but I would have loved to have seen them collaborate. KurtWallander and Anne-Britt Hoglund, and Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist - I have no idea how that would have worked, but still I would have paid to have seen it.
What do you think of my list this week? Would you want to read any of these pair ups? What authors do you want to see work together?
