Ten Authors That Should Collab ASAP



Hello my bookish and writerly friends!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is the Top Ten Author Duos I’d Love To See Write A Book Together. There are a lot of authors who I’d love to see work together. This is my list of authors who I think would do it well:

1. Leigh Bardugo and Sarah Ash

shadow-and-bone_hi-res-677x1024     lordofsnowandshadows

Russian inspired world. An exploration of dark elements that most authors steer clear of. Maybe a cursed dragon or two. And plot lines steaming with intrigue. Basically, this duo would write the darkest most intense story of the year.

2. Sabaa Tahir and Tamora Pierce

Strong, kick-ass female leads. Intricate and surefooted world building. Dreamy/complex male characters that don’t overshadow the female lead. Intricate storytelling with an overall moral. This duo would pretty much blow every YA reader’s mind while teaching them a lesson in fighting for what they believe in.

3. Tahereh Mafi and Renee Ahdieh

Unravel Me #2      The Wrath and the Dawn

Beautiful prose. Damaged boys that we still root for. Heartbreaking story lines. Essentially this duo would write the love story to end all love stories.

4. Marie Lu & Victoria Aveyard

Legend        red_queen_book_cover_a_p

Futuristic. Faced paced. Teeming with betrayal at every turn. An excess of love triangles (squares?). If this duo ever teamed up, I think we could expect a dystopia unlike any we’ve ever seen before.

5. Christopher Paolini and Robin McKinley

Eragon_book_cover     The Blue Sword Cover

Classic writing style. Intricate and immersive world building. Type-A heroes. This duo would deliver a classic fairy tale, one that I think would be in the ranks of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

6. Scott Westerfeld and Naomi Novik

Leviathan Cover     hismajestysdragon

Alternative look at history. Amazing lead characters you instantly root for. Dragons and machines. This duo could have it all in a steampunk re-imagining of any war of their choosing. We could be guaranteed that their work would be filled with action and just the tinniest hint of romance.

7. Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth

What if Katniss and Tris were like BFFs? That sounds a lot like fanfic, I know, but imagine if this duo brought together their vision of a messed up dystopia, and then brought together two female leads instead of just the one? IDK, but I’m just saying, I think it might be pretty cool.

8. Robin La Fevers and Jennifer Fallon

GraveMercy_final_hres     wolfblade

So much political intrigue that we might need a family tree to keep things straight. Complex and incredible characterization. Fantastic world building. Heartbreak. I don’t know if I’d actually want to see this duo write something, they might rip my heart to shreds before I could get to the end.

9. James Dashner and A.G. Riddle

The_Maze_Runner_cover     the atlantis gene

Set in a futuristic sci-fi dystopia. Just the right amount of romance that wont overshadow the major plot line. Real, relatable male leads that you’ll happily root for. Heart pounding action. Mind blowing conspiracy theories. Essentially, this duo would write an intense dystopian thriller that would keep you on the edge of your seat.

10. Cassandra Clare and J.K. Rowling

I feel like these two could bring together a whole new world of “magic” wielders. But what I’m really looking for is a brand new “school of magic”. I think this duo could pull it off beautifully, thereby launching us into a whole new age of magic users. The bromance would probably still be strong, something both authors are good at, and the backstories would still be tragic.

And that is my list of Top Ten Author Duos I’d Love To See Write A Book Together!

  1. Your choices are absolutely fantastic! These authors would all work so, so well together and their books would be mind-blowing. I especially like the pairings of Suzanne Collins & Veronica Roth (can you just imagine how fierce their heroine would be?!) and Marie Lu & Victoria Aveyard (I feel like they would come up with something really original and fantastic). Thanks for sharing and, as always, great choices! ❤

    1. Thank you Zoe! I can totally see the Lu Aveyard duo actually happening one day bc they both went to USC and I feel like it’s possible that they may be like “hey lets do a book together”. Honestly it would be a dream! 😍

      And I would die for a super fierce heroine, I feel like we don’t get enough of them in Ya. Like there are quite a few but I love the super intense/fearless but totally relatable heroines that it’s almost like I want every book I read to have at least one girl like that, she doesn’t even have to be the lead, there just has to be one. Lol!

  2. Veronica Roth and Suzanne Collins seems to be a pairing on most people’s wishlists today! (I actually haven’t read Divergent or The Hunger Games yet…). J.K. Rowling and Cassie Clare would be the ultimate duo! Imagine if Will Herondale was at Hogwarts. Sign me up! ❤

    1. Will at Hogwarts! Omg! So many levels of yes. Idk about you, but I’d take Will over what’s his face, umm his name is drawing a blank, the guy that Robert Patinson played.

      And I think the queens of dystopia are being paired up because everyone is drooling over the potential fierceness of the heroine they’d undoubtably create together, lol! I know I sure would die to see that duo pair up. Ahh, if only there were a book genie to grant all my unrealistic wishes. Lol.

  3. I think that Hunger Games and Divergent are too similar to have the writers do something together. They wouldn’t really be able to assist each other in the areas that they lack in because their styles are so similar.
