Top Ten Tuesday: Author Duos I Want To See Together
October 13, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Author Duos You’d LOVE To See Write A Book Together. This was a fun one to think about, and I can’t wait to see what other bloggers have come up with!
Renee Rosen and Sara Gruen
I’ve seen Renee and Sara appear together at a book event, and I have discovered that they are writing partners. I think both of them are extremely detail oriented, and it would be interesting to see what they could write together.
Chris Bohjalian and Jamie Ford
I have learned new facts from reading both of these authors, and I feel like they have similar styles in terms of their ability to teach through great character voices. I think together they could create an outstanding novel.
Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins
Both of these women are queens at suspense novels with unreliable female narrators. I can only imagine what their dark imaginations could come up with when combined.
Neal Shusterman and Suzanne Collins
Two of my favorite dystopian authors! I’d be curious what other worlds their combined creativity could develop.
Jojo Moyes and Jennifer Niven
Moyes and Niven wrote my favorite reads of 2015 so far, and I can’t even imagine the mind-blowing talent they would have combined. I bet I may never recover from a read like that!
Meg Wolitzer and Garth Stein
I’ve only read one book by Wolitzer, her YA debut Belzhar. Similar to Stein, she takes what could be a common storyline and gives it a special, somewhat supernatural twist. I’d be curious to see what they two of them could produce together.
Liza Palmer and Katherine Center
I loved all the quotes that I put in my quote notebook from both of these authors, and I would love to see them develop a contemporary novel together. I imagine it would be entertaining, funny, and touching all at the same time.
Billie Letts and Fannie Flagg
I always love a good novel set in the South, whether contemporary or historical fiction. These two ladies are two of my favorite Southern writers so why not have them write together.
Mary Kubica and James Klise
These authors are excellent at writing mystery novels, and I like to think about what twists and turns they could plot as a team.
Suanne Laqueur and Hanya Yanagihara
Both of these women are amazingly beautiful writers that tap into the dark depths of despair that people can fall into. A joint effort between the two could continue to bring so much awareness to mental health issues while sharing an amazing story.
What two authors would you like to see write a book together?
