Top Ten Tuesday: Dynamic Duos

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme is author duos we would love to see write a book together. 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
These are my top 2 favorite authors. I have no idea what kind of book I would like them to come up with, but I am sure that if they do it will be phenomenal! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________



Kelley Armstrong is one of my all-time favorite authors. She writes amazing characters, and her stories are always phenomenal. Kiersten White's Paranormalcy series reminds me a lot of Kelley Armstrong's work, plus she is downright hilarious. I think this combination would churn out something wonderful! 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Jennifer Lynn Barnes and Stacey Kade are both really good at weaving in suspense and mysteries into their plot lines. I think they could come up with something amazing, a mixture between the Project Paper Doll and The Naturals. 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Both of these authors completely blew me away, and in both cases it was completely unexpected. I think that Tera Lynn Childs and Kimberly Derting could write an amazing mystery series together, with a heavy dose of sass tossed in. 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

This required a bit of thought. I knew that I wanted to use Maria Dahvana Headley for one of these, but then came the task of deciding who she should be paired up with. A couple of names came to mind, but then I happened to glance at my shelf and see a copy of Shiver, and it just clicked. These two authors have such distinct writing styles, I would absolutely love to see what they would come up with as a team.

Both of these authors have written some of my favorite books of the past few years. I think their writing styles would merge really well together, and I would like to see Alexandra branch out into a more sci-fi style, more like Kaufman's These Broken Stars.

This one was an absolute no-brainer! These two ladies always go hand in hand together in my head. I am really surprised that a collaboration hasn't happened yet!

Tamora Pierce was another no brainer for this list, though who she should be paired up with was a little harder to decide on. I feel like Yelena and Alanna could have been really good friends if they met, and I'd be really interested to see what kind of world these two ladies would invent for us.

    2. I like this mashup too! I couldn't decide who to pick to pair with Maggie. Originally I had put Maggie with Leigh Bardugo, but I already had Leigh paired with Holly

    3. I think Maggie and Leigh would be a pretty great mashup too, though!

  8. Hi! I'm not sure how much of this I even read because your blog is so pretty! I love how it's all set up and the colors. :) I don't know Susan Phillips, but I know Jennifer Crusie, so she must be good!

    1. Aww, thank you! If you like Jennifer Crusie, you definitely should check out SEP! Her books are a little more emotional than Crusie's, but they are seriously amazing! I recommend starting with Lady Be Good, What I Did For Love or It Had to Be You :)

    1. I almost hated making this list because it made me want things that probably won't happen :p But still, we can hope!

  12. Great list! There are a few authors up there I haven't read so it makes imagining the combos a bit harder. But for the pairs I've read both of, you just created a set of awesome new books. I wouldn't even need to see what a book would be about to buy them.
