{TTT} Colossal Collaborations

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 with 5 comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds.  =) We're game.

This week's topic is the Top Ten Author Duos You'd LOVE To See Write A Book Together:

Jen's Picks:

I think that these two authors could write the most fun, realistic best friends story evar! Maybe a last summer before college kind of story.

These ladies would write the most chilling, haunting, beautiful retelling of just about any story, but I think I'd like to see them take on Hansel and Gretel together, obviously with a dual point-of-view.

Duh, any book that Carson and Pearson wrote together would be a fantasy featuring a fierce heroine, but how awesome would it be if they wrote something during the time of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table?

Any book that these two collaborated on would be the most darling, most swoony book ever. In a perfect world, they'd tackle a story about two best friends who fall for the same guy, one without even realizing it -- like anonymously, via email or something -- and told from each girl's perspective.

These two authors can do no wrong when writing solo, so imagine what would happen if they combined forces! At first, I'm inclined to think that they'd write a pretty amazing faerie story together, but they've both done that on their own, so I'd like them to take on something even more mythical and fantastical...unicorns. And not just your run-of-the-mill unicorns...these would be able to communicate telepathically with their riders. =)

Here are some other author combos I'd like to see one day:

  • Veronica Rossi & Marie Lu - futuristic fantasy
  • Laini Taylor & Libba Bray - a good versus evil-type story with lots of POVs
  • Huntley Fitzpatrick & Sarah Dessen - a coming of age story with good friendships and plenty of swoon with multiple perspectives
  • Katja Millay & Colleen Hoover - a book that breaks my heart but puts it back together by the end...maybe with a hate-to-love romance, too ;0)
  • Paula Weston & Susan Ee - I don't care what they write about as long as there is plenty of banter
  • Claire Legrand & Heather Dixon - these two should write something together that's reminiscent of Labyrinth

Which authors would you love to see collaborate on a novel? Be sure to share a link to your TTT post so we can visit!


  1. Stephanie Perkins and Jenny Han would be adorable together!! So would Huntley Fitzpatrick and Sarah Dessen. Pretty much any of my fave Contemp authors paired up would make me freak out. I also agree about Maggie and Holly Black. That book would be really creative! Great list :)

  2. Awesome list! Oh man, Holly Black and Maggie Stiefvater would be amazing together! I have just read my second Morgan Matson book and I adored it. I don't think I have read Emery Lord yet, but I am sure Morgan Matson can make magic with anyone. Here is my top ten list: http://bookbinges.blogspot.it/2015/10/top-ten-tuesday-authors-i-am-dying-to.html

  3. Ohh a Lord/Watson sounds pretty awesome!

  4. I would definitely read a book by Rae Carson and Mary E. Pearson! It would be guaranteed to be epic!! Also, a Fitzpatrick and Dessen pairing would be wonderful to see!

  5. so stephanie perkins and jenny han yes yes yes. Maggie and Holly yes yes yes. great list,.
