Top Ten Tuesday- Authors I Wish Would Collaborate

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (October 13th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Author Duos I'd Love To See Write A Book Together

You guys, this is So fun, I could match up authors all day!

1.  Laurie Halse Anderson & Nina LaCour- Both of these authors write books that break my heart... and they're both experts at the beautiful writing.  I couldn't even image what work of art they would come up with together!

2.  Jesse Andrews & Stephen Chbosky- Both write books about odd boys... and both are originally from Pittsburgh!!  That's just a match made in heaven!

3.  Matthew Quick & John Green- If Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and Looking for Alaska had a baby, that baby would be an epic sobfest that would probably make me want to punch myself... but also I know I would love every painful minute of it.

4.  Huntley Fitzpatrick & Sarah Ockler- Their styles are similar and the Contemporary world might explode if this actually happened because it would be so perfect.

5.  Meredith Zeitlin & Louise Rozett- Something about Kelsey from Freshman Year and Rose from Confessions of an Angry Girl remind me of each other.

6.  Michelle Hodkin & Nova Ren Suma- Both of these ladies write really interesting mind-twisting books with that touch of supernatural.  Plus, with the way Michelle Hodkin writes books I can't put down and Nova Ren Suma writes SO beautifully, how could this collab. not be good?

7.  Jandy Nelson & A.S. King- Both write so beautifully, both write stuff that feels so fresh and new.  This would be a dream.

8.  Stephanie Perkins & Sarah Dessen- This might be my favorite pair on this list... it would be like the Contemporary Queen and the Contemporary Princess joining forces.

9.  Courtney Summers & Lauren Oliver- My favorite author from forever ever ago and my newest favorite author... let's make this happen!!

10.  Jennifer Brown & Jay Asher- I just think both of these authors write about tough subjects and that their writing would compliment one another's.

J.K. Rowling & Suzanne Collins- Just because I know the book world would go into a total craze if the minds behind The Hunger Games and Harry Potter got together.

I love this topic!!  It's so fun to pair my favorite authors together... I wish these would happen!!
Who were your dream pairings?

  1. Nice list of authors!! I almost chose a few of the authors you picked on your list for my TTT post this week. Here's a link to my TTT for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/10/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-author-duos.html

  2. I'm so impressed that you actually came up with ten. I haven't read the majority of the authors you listed (yet), but Huntley Fitzpatrick and Sarah Ockler are two that I am dying to read. I'm actually starting a buddy read for The Summer of Chasing Mermaids in the next couple of days. :D

  3. I haven't read any Jandy Nelson or A.S. King yet, but I'd be very interested to see what the two of them would write together. Great list!

  4. I paired the author of Speak with someone this week too. I shall have to read the one you paired it with! Happy readings :)

  5. It's interesting you paired Jandy with Amy (King), Michelle. In my mind, Jandy Nelson and Gayle Forman should co-write. Overall you have some awesome authors on your list and I'd be curious to see their cowriting too! Thanks for sharing.

  6. JK Rowling and Suzanne Collins would write a great book! I liked your choice of Jay Asher and Jennifer Brown too, I liked both Thirteen Reasons Why and Hate List, so I'm sure I'd like a book that they wrote together!
