[Top Ten Tuesday] Mashing Together Books to Make A More Epic Story

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is currently being run by That Artsy Reader Girl. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. This week I am talking about the books  I'd mash together to make an even more epic story than they already are. This was hard but so much fun!


Veronica Mars by Rob Thomas & Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston

For anyone who doesn't know about Veronica Mars, she is a teen private eye who is hired to help people with different mysteries of their lives. Beaglemania is about a woman who runs a no-kill shelter where the dead body of an employee is found. I feel like Veronica would be great at this mystery! Also, she has a dog named Backup so I know she'd melt surrounded by pups.

Animorphs by K.A. Applegate & Virals by Kathy Reichs 

This one is pretty self explanatory!! Both are about kids who turn into different animals! I think the kids in both of the stories could help each other and relate to each other. Virals is more focused on a scientific reason why the kids are turning into canines, where the Aimorphs story is more of a sci-fi/fantasy type story but it would still be really cool.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss & King Arthur  by Roger Lancelyn Green

Both of these are set in medieval times and I think it would be cool for Arthur and his knights to chill with Kvothe and his gang. This is more of a thing I think would be really cool without much of an explanation.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green & The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Although  I love TFIOS, like most of John Green's books they are more character driven (my favorite kind of stories) but I think it would be cool to see Hazel and Augustus have to solve a mystery. They are both so smart.

 The Cavendish Home For Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand & Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz 

I love Ari & Dante so much, I think it would be so cool to see them solve a mystery or go through something spooky. I love their friendship and growing relationship and I think it would be fun to see them grow while basically going on a Scooby-Doo mystery.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell & Ready Player One by Ernest Cline 

I wasn't a huge fan of Ready Player One last time I read it, but I think it would definitely improve if Cath from Fangirl could go into the Simon Snow verse and experience a VR version of it! That would be so much fun.

Heist Society by Ally Carter & A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro 

I think it would be really cool to have Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes have to catch the Heist Society characters in some sort of act, but once Watson and Holmes realize that the Heist Society kids are doing the right thing for whatever reason they work together to bring down the actual big baddie. I want this so badly.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab & The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

How cool would it be if some of the Vicious characters lived in Panem? Maybe they've accidentally given themselves powers, so no one else has them or knows. It would bring such an advantage and make everything so much more interesting than it already is.

Orange by Ichigo Takano & Looking For Alaska by John Green

Both in Orange and Alaska the characters are trying to find answers about their friends possibly dying by suicide. In Orange, the characters find out that Kakeru left a note, and in Alaska the characters aren't sure if Alaska actually had an accident or died by suicide by driving her car into something. I think both sets of characters could really help each other with their grief and it would be really heartwarming and helpful for both of them.

Paper Towns by John Green & Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn 

What if before Margo went missing she framed Quentin for murder? That would be intense and super interesting. Not really sure where the story would go but that sounds like a addicting storyline!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Vicious and The Hunger Games would be a real interesting pair now that I think about it. Great choices!

  2. Okay, I'm really awful and haven't read *both* sides of any of these to give much of an opinion, but they seem awesome to me, and mainly I just wanted to shriek wildly about the fact that YOU MENTIONED ANIMORPHS!!!!

    I legit grew up on those books and their spinoffs and I literally can't help but make really weird noises and flail a little whenever anyone mentions them 😂😂

    1. Animorphs was a series my fiancé LOVED as a kid! I read a few of them as a kid but he was all about them!! So I feel like I know a lot about them through him :D

  3. Hazel and Augustus solving a mystery would be interesting! My TTT

    1. Right?! I love their intelligence, I feel like they could totally be a great mystery team. :D I'll check out yours now!

  4. I agree with ChrissiReads. I'd love to see Hazel and Augustus solve a mystery.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Right?! They would be an amazing mystery duo! And I'll check out yours now :D

  5. I think what I love most about your list is that I've read one book from almost all of your pairings, which makes it easier for me to imagine the twists your adding with your mashups! And a lot of them do sound super fun.

    Have a great week. - Katie

  6. You make me want to go read some of these books that I haven't read before! I haven't read either one (yet) but your Fangirl/Ready Player One mashup sounds interesting.

    1. Right?! It would be so cool to go into your favorite books and experience them VR style! And thank you! :)

  7. Love this list and you've explained your reasoning for each one really well. I'd definitely read some of these.

    1. Thank you so much!! And right?! I wish they could exist!!!
