Top Ten Author Duos I'd LOVE to See Write a Book Together
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
This is tricky topic, one I've never really sat around and thought about. I wrote and rewrote and and came up with these five pairings (which include ten author names, so I'm counting it :)
What amazing author duos are on your list?
1) Mindee Arnett and Ernest Cline
Take Ernest Cline's obsession with the 80s and gamer culture and Mindee Arnett's adventurous episodic writing style and you could have a story that would make a perfect TV show. Now hold that thought in your head, and imagine that it doesn't get cancelled after the first season leaving huge fans every absolutely heartbroken :) Browncoat forever.
2) Elizabeth Wein and Ruta Sepetys
Both these amazing ladies know how to write historical fiction that leave you sobbing. Truly ugly crying. It's not pretty. But it's beautiful and full of humanity. If they wrote together, I'm pretty sure they could conquer the world.
3) Gail Carriger and Maggie Stiefvater
I love them both, so this is just pure selfishness, but imagine Gail Carriger's steampunk flare with Stiefvater's eloquence with words and genius at character development. It's kind of beautiful, isn't it? It's alright. Admit it. Beautiful.
4) Gina Damico and Chris McCoy
They understand laugh out loud funny and snappy, witty dialogue. Maybe a book where they take turns writing chapters? I'd be first in line.
5) Erin Morgenstern and Rainbow Rowell
Maybe a seemingly odd pairing, but Rainbow is so good at writing emotion, and Morgenstern is so good at writing atmosphere, that put together they could write a compelling, whimsical fantasy that is both stirring and exciting.
