The Broke and the Bookish hosts Top Ten Tuesday every week and the theme for today is top authors that you’d love to see write a book together. This topic required a lot of thinking for me, but I really liked it!
1. Rainbow Rowell and John Green
You have to admit, this would be one heck of a team! They both have unique styles of writing and have the ability to write insanely memorable characters.
2. Stephanie Perkins and Huntley Fitzpatrick
Reason number one is obviously that they are both redheads. But seriously, both of these authors have created some of the best book boyfriends in all of the YA world. Jase Garrett and Cricket Bell are actually a lot of like in the sense that they both live next door to the MC and they are both insanely sweet guys. I think they could write one killer novel together.
3. Emery Lord and Morgan Matson
Both of these girls have written gorgeous YA novels about road trips, summer, and love. They both write nerdy sweet boyfriends who you really don’t get to see a lot of.
4. Katie McGarry and Miranda Kenneally
I can’t think of any other two authors that write YA romance books with sports involved the way that Katie and Miranda do. I also love how sex positive they are plus all the characters are always likable.
5. Sarah J. Maas and Veronica Roth
I will confess: I haven’t read all of Sarah J. Maas’s books yet, but I do love what I’ve read from her so far. I also know that she’s EXTREMELY popular due to the awesome fantasy that she writes. Even though Veronica Roth writes Dystopian and not really the same kind of fantasy, I still wanted to pair them up because I think they would make a good team and the reads would go crazy for it.
6. Jandy Nelson and Melina Marchetta
This is definitely the most far fetched one so far considering the fact that Melina Marchetta is Australian and Jandy is an American author. However, I simply couldn’t deny how similar their writing style is. I absolutely love how Jandy handled the subject of grief in The Sky is Everywhere and Marchetta did the same beautiful job with On the Jellicoe Road. Yes, this may never happen, but this is my dream list, not a predictable one!
7. Robin Benway and Gayle Forman
This may seem like a weird combo, but I chose them because they both wrote beautiful novels that feature music. Robin also proved that she could tackle serious subjects the way that Gayle has with her latest novel Emmy and Oliver.
8. Sarah Dessen and Courtney C. Stevens
This is another one that might seem strange to some of you but I swear I have some reasoning behind it. You may not be too familiar with Courtney C. Stevens since she’s only released one novel so far with her second one coming out in November. On the other side, Sarah has 16 books out. However, one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books is Just Listen which tackles the subject of sexual assault in such a heartbreaking and real way, which is what Courtney managed to do with her debut book Faking Normal. If you haven’t read either of these titles, you totally should!
9. J. Lynn and Tammara Webber
These are two brilliant New Adult authors. J. Lynn’s Cam from Wait For You and Tammara’s Lucas from Easy are both a lot alike if you think about it and I love them both!
10. Jen Frederick and Cora Carmack
Okay I know the image for Jen is a little different but I couldn’t find a real picture of her anywhere so I decided to just use the Goodreads image. Anyway, I picked these two since they both write amazing New Adult football books. I know that Jen’s is a lot more recent and only one in the series is out, but I was definitely impressed in the way that I was with Cora Carmack’s Rusk University books.
