Top Ten Tuesday – Books You’d Mash Together

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

Another Top Ten Tuesday! This time, the prompt is super interesting, but I’m only going to do five pairs, so ten books total. I’m lazy and I doubt I can come up with 20 books! I actually really struggled to get this put together because there were multiple books I wanted to pair with each other and I wanted to do ten unique books/pairings.

But, here we go!

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoThe Heart's Invisible Furies

Will I ever shut up about these two books? Nope. Never.

But, both of these would be mashed up great. Sure, they take place at slightly different periods and are in different countries, but they’re both hella queer. I’d love to see Evelyn and Cyril interact because, despite being alive around the same times, they have different feelings about their sexualities.

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood, #1)

My next pairing are two books that both deal with the fae and the insane/scary world that they live in. However, I had two very different reactions to them. The Cruel Prince, I loved and adored. The Hazel Wood, not so much.

But, I think that a mash-up could bring out the strengths they each have. Such as, I’d love to see Cardan and Jude interact with Alice. Especially Jude. Because Jude has no tolerance for idiots, which Alice really was. Maybe Alice would grow as a character.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)It

Maybe this is a weird one? Whatever. I don’t care.

Basically, both of them deal with horror (different types) and the characters in each are roughly the same age. But, imagine Harry Potter fighting Pennywise? That’d be brilliant. I’d love to witness that.

A Tale of Two CitiesThe Book Thief

Funny enough, I’ve reviewed neither of these officially on the blog, but I love both of these books. They’re just… ugh. I think what I want most from a mash-up is Death narrating Sydney Carton’s story from that perspective. Because, I love A Tale of Two Cities, but I really love Sydney and I want more of him always.

Brave StoryThe Poppy War

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK TO MY REVIEW OF BRAVE STORY! I will die of embarrassment because I wrote it in 2012 and, well, it’s not a work of art in the least.

Anyways, I think I’d love this most because they’re both Asian inspired stories that are in a fantastic world. I wish I remembered Brave Story more (because it was six years ago that I read it) but I think that they would work well together.

Talk to me!

What books would you mash together? Do you agree with any of mine?
