Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Author Duos i want to see

This weeks meme over at Brokeandbookish.com is a bit of a hard one to come up with ten, mostly because in most cases i am really happy with the books as they are. Even if i don't love the book, i still respect the authors work and decision to write it as the book as been written.

Also while thinking about this i noticed that i have not really read that many author Duos book to begin with. I mean i read "Dash and Lily's book of dares" by Rachel Cohn and David Leviathan and i recently read "These Broken Stars" (review if you are interested)  by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

And that is it. I think i have two other books that i have not yet read that two people wrote together (actually the same people mentioned just now!), but clearly i don't really have much to draw back on for this topic. Still i tried my best and just thought about which authors i think would either benefit from each other for one reason or another, or because their writing style is in a way fitting. :)

The first one was actually very easy because i do think about that one pretty often, but the rest? Not that easy, surprisingly. So here are my 10 author Duos i wish to see, in no particular order:




1. Stephen King and J. K. Rowling
 

This would be... fantastic.

The King and Queen of fantastic stories writing a book together? Yes, please.
Also since Rowling is now writing crime and mystery as well, this would be a nice fit, they could write the ultimate mystery together!



2. Nalini Singh and Janet Evanovich
 


Those two, i think would write a pretty fantastic adult romance.


I mean Singh has the fantastic ideas of the overall story, and Evanovich for the comic relive. And they both write good strong female characters. 
And since Singh actually manages to have her character be able to decide between guys, the book might actually end in a decision! And since both of them seem to love series, this might actually be something that will keep me entertained for a while and many books to come.



3. Brandon Sanderson and Sarah J. Maas
 

Once again a mixture of fantastic world building (Sanderson) and the female characters (Maas -at least with Celaena).


I just think that this would work. Those two could make it work and write a good fantasy story and would be interesting to read. I would buy it and try it out!



4. Erin Morgenstern and Patrick Rothfuss
 

Because well... realistic magical world building and fantastic stories that are magical.Did i mention magical stuff, coming together with those two?

And really, just think about this! And then picture it, and tell me i am wrong!




5. R. C. Lewis and Marissa Meyer


 

Now this one is one that i think is a good match because they currently have a similar series. And by that i mean a fairytale retelling series that has robots and mostly strong female leads that are not the typical fairytale girls!

And since they do write about similar topics and seem to have a similar idea about the retellings, and i enjoy Meyers writing but think she is lacking the world building and explanation, and i loved Lewis' world building and explanations (i mean i loved her complete book bust trying to put together what one of those authors is missing, so go with it!) i think those two could work together and produce a good book.
I would want to read it at least.



6. Stephanie Perkins and Jenny Han
 


This is similar to the one right above this.
I think those two could work well together simply because they write about similar topics and in a way just write similarly.

I personally did not love the stuff i read by either of them. But they were okay. I think that if both of them would put together their best attributes and story parts a book together by those two? Would be a really nice romance contemporary YA book. I know some of you can picture it!


7. Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo




Because both write fantastically. And both write fantasy.(see what i did there?)



 And pretty kick-ass females. Do i need to say more? If you can't see it you can't understand me!



8. Diane Setterfield and Vanessa Diffenbaugh


 

I loved both authors and their stories. They were so unique and special and just wonderful all around. The characters where fantastically thought out and... it just worked. 

And since i loved both of their work separately i thought why not? I would love to see beautifully fantastic writing combined together. Plus the unique way of story telling those two have separately combined and coming together? I can't even imagine what would come out of that!



9. J. K. Rowling and Erin Morgenstern


 

Once again one of those: why the heck not? duos for me. For one Rowling might write a bit of magic back into her books, or not. 

Who cares? I just think those two could work well together, with the detailed and nicely descriptive but not boring writing style of those two. I can just see it. 


10. Robin Hobb and George R. R. Martin


 


Because epic fantasy overload. 

And those two would most likely write the biggest book series ever. 
With about a hundred books, or the real never ending story, because honestly those two just continue writing books in the same world (not judging! I kind of enjoy that kind of thing! Just saying!) and make the books itself epic lengths. I mean picture it! It would be epic. And huge. Epic-ily huge!



What about you guys?
Have you have similar author duo dreams that i have?
See any duo on here that you just can't picture?
Let me know, i would love to hear what you think about it!


Write more later...

  5. Low the Stephanie Perkins and Jenny Han duo. I also think Stephen King and J.K. Rowling would produce a pretty interesting yet fantastic novel.

  9. YES! To this entire list, and especially to pairing Erin Morgenstern with Patrick Rothfuss and also J.K. Rowling. These all need to become actual "book-shaped" books. Also...thanks for stopping over at my blog and I am now going to follow you on everything because I think we should be bloggy friends seeing that we both love similar books and authors. :-)
