Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Author Duos You'd LOVE To See Write A Book Together

*in no particular order

1. VICTORIA LAURIE & JULIET BLACKWELL--this would be so awesome! I love both of their mystery series! Even having one where all 4 of their main characters interact in a crossover to meet all crossovers would be incredible! Plus they're all paranormal mysteries, so it would be one helluva read!

2. DARYNDA JONES & NICOLE PEELER--this one would be awesome! Both of these authors write hilarious characters. A book with them both writing together would have me splitting sides!! Or peeing my pants! LOL!

3. SARA RAASCH & MORGAN RHODES--two epic fantasy series from fantasy authors! Together I am sure they would write a killer fantasy!!

4. CARA LYNN SHULTZ & DAWN METCALF--this is not the perfect pairing, as Cara's books are more paranormal kick-assery, where Dawn's are urban fantasy YA kick-assery. They have some shared traits and differences, but I think a combo of them would be epic!

5. NALINI SINGH & JEANIENE FROST--authors who write incredible awesome heroines and unbelievably hot heroes? Yeah, these two need together, yeah yeah yeah! ;)

6. LEIGH BARDUGO & HOLLY BLACK--okay, kinda cheating here, as at the signing with Leigh two weeks ago, she said she'd LOVE to write a book with Holly. And I could totally see that! I've only read a few of Holly's books, but together I think they could really write a masterpiece!

7. MARIA V. SNYDER & MARY E. PEARSON--ironically picked two fantasy authors who use a middle initial! Imagine how long that would look on the covers! LOL! But anyways, I love their fantasy series and I think together they would create a masterpiece!

8. BREE DESPAIN, JOSEPHINE ANGELINI, & MEG CABOT--okay, more cheating...I choose these three because I loved what they did with Greek mythology! I think together they'd totally change history!!

9. KENDARE BLAKE & DAWN KURTAGICH--these two could write one horrifying story!! And I would sooooo read it! And likely be scared senseless!!

10. SUSAN DENNARD & SARAH J. MAAS--these two are already besties, so I think they really need to write a book together. Once again, it will be nothing short of epic!


  1. Love the tease. This top ten looks like it was hard to create. You did a great job though.

    My Teaser

  2. sounds like she might have some growing up to do.

    Interesting author combos, too.

  3. That was a funny teaser. A new author for me to check out too!

    Here's my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/10/13/teaser-tuesdays-132-space-cowboys-indians/

  4. I didn't even think of Susan Dennard and Sarah J. Maas... you're so right!! Already being besties, these two would be a fantastic writing duo!! <3

  5. I'd love to see Susan and Sarah publish a book together! I haven't too many of the other authors, but they seem like they could write great books together!

  9. Sounds like an amusing teaser! Here's mine!

    I've read very few of those pairings though! My TTT

  10. Your tease is really cute, and that's a great top ten! I totally agree with Josephine Angelini and Meg Cabot. Unfortunately I haven't read the other author yet. Darynda Jones and Nicole Peeler, that would be awesome too! Great list! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  11. I would perorder a Kendare Blake and Dawn Kurtagich mashup right this second if it happened! Though, I would be too scared to actually read it whenever it came in :p

    My TTT

  17. Cute tease. This sounds like a fun read.

  18. I would so read a book by MARIA V. SNYDER & MARY E. PEARSON great list.

  19. I've read several of these authors, but none of the pairs!! Falling Kingdoms is pretty high on my TBR!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  20. Great list! It's interesting that I've read a lot of the authors you've mentioned, but none of them were paired together, lol. I have new authors to look into now, though, so thanks!

    My TTT

  21. I should check some of this authors.
    Thanks for sharing ;)

  22. Haha, what a very nice teaser!
    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog earlier :)

  23. So many great duos! And such similar covers for their individual works. I can definitely picture some of these authors writing together.

  24. OMG SJM AND SUSAN DENNARD IN ONE BOOK! I would die. Although I think they do write something free online, but an actual book would be epic! I'd also be all for Bardugo and Black!

  25. One of THOSE kind of peeps! Fun.
