Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Books You’d Mash Together which asks us to pick two books you think would make an epic story if combined (submitted by Rissi @ Finding Wonderland). I had a difficult time narrowing it down to just ten, so I've included a few bonus. Here we go, in no particular order:
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch & Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo - I'd love to see the casts come together, but I'm dying to see what kind of stuff Locke and Kaz could get up to!
Storm Front by Jim Butcher & Hounded by Kevin Hearne - I need Harry and Karen to meet up with Atticus and Granuaile. That combination would totally make my day!
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin & Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence - This would be insanely brutal, but seriously Joffrey could learn a thing or two from Jorg.
The Diviners by Libba Bray & In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters - Even though it's the Roaring '20s vs. WWI, this would still make a brilliantly creepy crossover.
These Vicious Masks by Kelly Zekas and Tarun Shanker & The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman - Yes, these stories are set 70 years apart, but this would be such a cool crossover - demon hunters and people with superpowers, how about it!
Jackaby by William Ritter & The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey - I need the citizens of the New England towns of New Fiddleham and New Jerusalem to meet up. Pretty please?
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson & Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - I just want Parzival and Art3mis to meet up with Hiro and Y.T, is that too much to ask?
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater & The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black - Basically, I just want any excuse for these two authors to co-write something and this seems like it could be a really cool mashup.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Supernatural - Since both series have tie-in books, this counts for me. I don't know about you, but I'd love to see the Scoobies(!) meet Team Free Will! I mean, we've already kind of had it since several Buffy actors have appeared on Supernatural.
Back to the Future & Doctor Who - Don't you just have the feeling that Marty and Rory would be good friends?
Columbo & Sherlock - Just one more thing, I have no clue how this could work out but the two detectives could make a good team. I would totally watch that combination!
