Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Team-Ups I Dream About

This week's prompt was a little difficult. I hadn't spend too much time thinking about author team-ups before this prompt, but now that I made this list, I'm really thinking these books would be great, so get on it authors! 
Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish

1. Elizabeth Wein and Cat Winters
I would love to see these two work together on a historical fiction novel! Wein's emotional storylines with Winters paranormal elements would be really interesting.

2. Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen
Both are so sassy and witty, I don't know if the world could handle a team up by these two!

3.  Jandy Nelson and Sarah Dessen 
Nelson and Dessen are both Queens of Contemporary in my book, and the two of them together would make for so much family drama and feels.

4. John Corey Whaley and David Levithan
I love the way these two write male teenagers, and I think the two of them together would be a beautiful, and perhaps terrifying thing. Reading from the male teenage prescriptive is always a little jarring for me, but when it's done right, it's a great experience,

5. Maureen Johnson and Libba Bray 
Johnson's humor with Bray's talent for the weird and supernatural would be a lot of fun!

6.  Dorthy Parker and Edna St. Vincent Millay 
Both of these women are amazing poets, sassy as all get out, and feminists. Anything they wrote together would be Earth shattering.

7. Gris Grimly and Charles Dickens 
I would love to see Grimly illustrate Dickens' novels! I think they would be a great match.

8. Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling 
!!!!!!!!

9. Marie Rutkoski and Sarah J. Maas 
Both these ladies write kick-ass female characters and great fantasy world. I would love to see Rutkoski's political fantasy world collide with Maas' characters.

10. Marcus Sedgwick and Neil Gaiman 
Match made in heaven.

Who's your dream author team-up?

  1. I love your idea of Sedgwick/Gaiman. I was trying to think of someone to pair with Gaiman and couldn't come up with a good partner.

  4. Great list, Mallory! I haven't read any Wein or Winters yet, but judging by your love for them I imagine they'd make a great team, and I think a Gaiman and Sedgwick partnership would have some interesting results! :)

  11. You did take your time with your list! Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen would be an interesting writing duo. I'm not familiar with John Corey Whaley, but I met David Levithan early this fall at TTBF and I think anyone anything like him paired together as writing partners would be exactly as you said, beautiful but terrifying. He's so stinking funny!

    1. Yes! I always have to chuckle at Levithan's novel. If you like his novels, I highly recommend John Corey Whaley!
