Top Ten (okay, Eight) Author Duos I'd LOVE To See Write A Book Together

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

This is such a weird thing to think about for me. Because you never really know what you'll get, I suppose. Especially because most of the books I've read with multiple authors recently are textbooks.

1. Y. S. Lee and Sarah Biggs Waller: They showed very different sides of London (and slightly different time periods), and I'd love to see what they would create if they combined forces.

2. Maria Dahvanna Headley and Marie Rutkoski: They've both got beautiful writing styles. Though I think it would probably be better if they wrote two different points of view?

3. Michael Scott and Sarah Rees Brennan: *shrugs* This didn't really seem intuitive at first glance, but I think they favour different aspects of my sense of humour, and I think it would be fun.

4. Kenneth Oppel and Kat Falls: I think this is because I enjoyed Airborn and Dark Life in the same way?

5. Eoin Colfer and Cristin Terrill: I thought of this one mostly because time travel shenanigans, but the more I consider it, the more I want it.

6. Marissa Meyer and Leigh Bardugo: They're already a similar kind of storyteller, I think? And I quite enjoy that kind of storyteller.

7. Erin Bow and Sarah Beth Durst: Probably just because they've both written fantasy-quest novels that I've really liked.

8. Marie Lu and Jennifer Lynn Barnes: Because I think they'd write a pretty amazing post-apocalyptic and/or cyberpunk heist novel. Is that a shallow reason?


  1. I haven't read anything by Rutkoski, but this is the second list today that I have seen her paired up with someone I love. I am definitely going to have to check her out!!

    1. If she sounds like something you'd like, I would recommend you try The Winner's Curse. I haven't loved her other work, but TWC is excellent.
