We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since last January Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Books You’d Mash Together, so you pick two books you think would make an epic story when combined. Pretty cool idea, but also quite hard haha. Let’s see what I came up with for today’s topic.
1. My Lady Jane X Stalking Jack the Ripper
I absolutely loved My Lady Jane (and highly enjoyed My Plain Jane) and think it would be really fun to see what the Lady Janies would be able to do with Jack the Ripper. Stalking Jack the Ripper had a really interesting premise but I was a bit disappointed with the execution. I would love a little fantastical element, some good plot twists and some humor like in My Lady Jane in Stalking Jack the Ripper.
2. ACOTAR X The Hunger Games
Now this would be interesting! Can you imagine the Hunger Games but with Fae warriors? This would be so amazing, I can just see this as a way King Hybern would prevent an uprising under the Fae. And maybe these Hunger Games have teams so we can keep our Inner Circle together. Obviously we’d also get a big revolution in the end, that might make ACOWAR a better conclusion to the original trilogy 😉
3. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before X Fangirl
Basically I just want to read about Lara Jean during her university years haha. These are my favorite contemporary trilogy and standalone so mashing these together would be amazing. I think Lara Jean and Cath would possibly be friends if they met, although it will be a challenge to get them to attend something and talk to each other. But if you can make that happen, I think this could be a great series. I would love it so much and throw all my money at it haha.
4. The School for Good & Evil X The Isle of The Lost
I loved the School for Good and Evil but I think it would be really fun to see the descendants from all the epic heroes and villains like in the Isle of the Lost attend to this school. Just seeing them all interact and have them attend classes to get ready for their fairytale sounds like a book I would read for sure! I would hardly need a plot haha, I would just want to read about their days at the school.
5. Six of Crows X Darker Shades of Magic
These are two of my favorite series bút I do think we can make something epic of this. Can you imagine if Kell was able to transport our favorite heist crew to other worlds? Where they could steal all kinds of cool things. And participate in the tournament from A Gathering of Shadows? And where Kaz could trade stuff on the pirate ship from A Conjuring of Light? I think that would be pretty epic!
This was so hard to do! So I decided to keep it to 5 mash ups, because that’s 10 books so basically a top ten 😉 What do you think of these combinations? And which books would you mash together? Let me know in the comments!
