Top Ten Tuesday (Author Duos You'd Love Together)



Well, I'm back! And obsessively reading my recently delivered copy of Carry On. Soo..suffice to say I'm a bit distracted this round. However! I do have some pairing to throw out. It might not add up to ten but I'll put down as much as my brain will allow!

1) John Green and Rainbow Rowell

I can't imagine what epic-ness could be created if Green and Rowell joined forces. The heartache, the coming-of-ageness! They pretty much completely own this generation's Contemporary Young Adult voice. (Even if Rowell's Eleanor and Park is set in the eighties, lol). They could do great, great things. And then there would be a movie. And it would be great as well. lol.

2) J.K. Rowling and C.S. Lewis

I know, I know. One of these authors is dead. But, I love Narnia and as it was on the approved list (like the Christian 'Harry Potter) growing up so I instinctively link these two together in my messy, somewhat scattered line of thinking. (And Redwall by Brian Jacques, lol). All the magic, all the meaningful tales!

3) Cornelia Funke and Neil Gailman

Speaking of magic! I kind of like the idea of Coraline meeting The Inkheart Trilogy. I think both authors are incredibly talented and both possess a unique, creative mind.. There are 'similar' works, of course. Can't throw a pebble in literature without getting a similar or 'if you like this...' but I don't think these two have equivalents. They create very unique stories and characters.

4) Sue Monk Kidd and Anita Diamant

Female empowerment? Historical context? Both have worked in separate ends of historical fiction but both write characters and stories closely tied to their own heritage or personal, emotional history. I think they have a great deal in common, it'd be really cool to see what they would come up with.

5) Meg Cabot and Ann Brashares

I remember reading both of these authors when I was a teenager. I haven't read Brashares in a long while but I still remember The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Put these two ladies together and I strongly believe that they could work some magic.

And I'm leaving it off as five this week. Only because I'm reading Carry On and finishing up a post for later this week. I did a little bit of reading while I was sick and I have some organizing and writing to do! :)

If you participated this week, link me below! I'm curious to see what others have thought up for this topic.
