Top Ten Author Duos You’d LOVE To See Write A Book Together
I have never given this any thought before writing this post, but now that I have I can’t help fantasizing about all these amazing authors combining forces.
- Kristen Cashore (Graceling) and Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass). Combine both authors penchant for dynamic characters and witty dialogue with their backgrounds in fantasy and you would have a powerful action packed fantasy and character driven novel.
- Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson) and Tamora Pierce (The Song of the Lioness). These are my favourite childhood authors and while both writing style and plot focus are very different I feel like the similarities that appealed them to me, such as the believability of their characters, would make a joint book someone else’s childhood favourite. Fantasy warriors backed by mythology? Yes please.
- Michelle Hodkin (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer) and Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Boys). In which Maggie Steifvater’s ambiguity is enhanced by Michelle Hodkin’s eerie writing and they kill us with confusion and slow building suspense.
- Pierce Brown (Red Rising) and Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game). Their love of science fiction and it’s complexities mixed with their kick-ass unbeatable protagonists would make a combined novel a force to be reckoned with.
- Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen) and Alexandra Bracken (The Darkest Minds). These authors enraptured me with their world building and their exploration of supernatural abilities. I can only imagine how Alexandra Bracken’s diverse characters coupled with Victoria Aveyard’s subtle and manipulative plot lines would cause my head to spin.
- Sarah J Mass ( Throne of Glass) and Tamora Pierce ( The Song of the Lioness). Both authors love writing fiction novels with supernatural powers always involved and have similar female leads (i.e.. I love them both!)
- Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider) and Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson). Loved both of these books and read them both in my childhood! Alex a spy and Percy a demi-god, I mean just take a second to imagine the possibilities if they wrote a book together!
- Marie Lu (Legend) and Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me). Both great dystopian authors, interesting plots and earth shattering plot twists (Warren) Never saw it coming!
- Kathryn Stockett (The Help) and Margaret Laurence (A Bird in the House). These authors both write from the same time period and it would be interesting to see how they would mesh with Margaret Laurence’s style of writing (short stories) to Kathryn Stockett who uses different POV’s to tell her story.
- Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens) and David Levithan (Two Boys Kissing). Both authors have a very profound but light tone to their writing. Juggling serious themes and sweet dialogue is a feat that these authors have no trouble with.
