Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books You’d Mash Together.” I love this topic so much. There are so many books where I would love it if the characters could meet or if certain characters could end up in a different world. Here are five mash ups I wouldn’t mind seeing and reading about. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
*Please note that I’m currently on hiatus and won’t be responding to comments until I come back this Sunday*
1. Zoraida Córdova’s Labyrinth Lost and Lily Anderson’s Undead Girl Gang – I can’t be the only one who’s imagined these Latina witches hanging out together. Not only could Mila and the Mortiz sisters talk magic and spells, they could bond over that time they both brought someone back from the dead.
2. Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows and Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince – One thing I really liked about The Cruel Prince is how ruthless Jude has to be in order to survive the fairy world and it got me thinking, there are not a lot of people who could do the things she did. Then it hit me, what if Kaz and company found themselves in this same world. Could they be ruthless and cunning enough to outwit fairies? My brain says yes and it would be a whole lot of fun to read.
3. Susan Dennard’s Truthwitch and Robin LaFever’s Grave Mercy – It is my firm belief that Truthwitch‘s Safi and Iseult would make a perfect fit in Grave Mercy‘s nunnery for assassins. Think of all the bad guys that could be expelled with their magical powers.
4. Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Maurene Goo’s I Believe in a Thing Called Love – I truly believe in my heart of hearts that if Lara Jean and Desi really existed, they would be really good friends. I see so much of my younger self in these two characters and experienced so much second-hand embarrassment while reading their stories. I have no doubt these two would end up getting themselves into really hilarious and awkward situations and I’d smile my way through the whole thing.
5. Alison Goodman’s The Dark Days Club and Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas’s These Vicious Masks – I love all the powers those in These Vicious Masks have, but I think I would like it even more if it was combined with the demons that feast on people in The Dark Days Club. Plus, can you imagine the brooding standoffs between Sebastian and Lord Carlston? I can already see Helen and Evelyn rolling their eyes.
Would you like to see any of these mash-ups as well? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.
