Today in top 5 Tuesday, like the past two weeks, Shanah @bionicbookwor wants us to give you our top 5 authors with their names beginning with the letters K to O. That can be a first name or last name.
I tweaked the challenge and decided to choose teams and pitch them agains each other!
Each team has romance or woman’s fiction authors as well as YA author. They all share the same first letter in their first name (or name if I can’t find one). From two to three, max four authors. I have read them all! I will also try to imagine the kind of story these authors could write!
By the end of the post, you comment with your winning team!
Let’s the battle begin!
Letter K: I pair Kate Stewart with Kristen Ashley and Karen Mc Manus!
Of course, it would be a mystery with one Alpha leader expressing himself through grunts. Very protective of the female character. But Kate would add unexpected depth to his character like a hidden fragility or a love for knitting…something to make the male character unique! Of course, chances are high that he would be either a biker, an actor, a jock a ….
Letter L: Pitching Leylah Attar, Laura Thalassa with Leigh Bardugo.
And the world would explode! So it would be a fantasy NA or adult. An epic story with grand gesture. Let’s have a broody and mysterious hero, a whole crew of misfits and add to this a clumsy heroine with a knack to fall into weird situation. She would be wise but funny.
Letter M: pairing Mia Sheridan and Margaret Rogerson.
Aaah a paranormal or fantasty story with a main male character either shy, either suffering from a handicap but good to his core. The heroine would be stumbling into the story and falling into a devious plot without meaning to! Kind of a collateral damage but she would rise to the occasion and find unexpected skills to survive and defend those she loves.
Letter N: Let’s associate Nalini Singh with Jennifer Niven.
What would a bipolar or psychotic angel be like? He’d need a strong female character and their story would begin as a friendship or necessary association to evolve into an unexpected love story.
Letter O: Michelle Obama with Lauren Oliver.
I bet on a fiction that would feel like a non fiction by its realisme, a dystopian!. The heroine would be from a poor family but really smart and determined to leave her mark on the world. She’d meet the male character in an apocalyptic world in need of change. They would soon be a formidable duet, able to set this destroyed world back on track.
So what do you think of my teams? Who would you vote for?
Thanks for reading!
Definitely Team L!
Team K, Team K!! You know I have to vote for Kristen Ashley!
Killing me! I’ll have to say L
Hehe L is also my favorite but shhhhh
I’m all for Team L! 😉 Great post, Sophie! 😀
I love Leigh Bardugo and Margaret Rogerson! Great picks 😀
Team L!! Bardugo all the way!! <3
I love how you’re doing this! I love Karen McManus. I haven’t read too many books by any of the other authors. Maybe two?
Thank you! And Karen is great!
I love this idea, love! Team L sounds AMAZING & I hope you’re saved in these difficult times, I send you all my love ❤️✨❤️✨
Thank you Sofii! And team L is also my favorite but shhhhh
This one’s tough. I kinda like Team M because A Sorcery of thorns looks so badass, but Lauren Oliver and Michelle Obama seem like a kickass team. And McManus has me thinking Team K a little bit… but I’ll go with Team M!!
I know it’s hard to choose Greg!
Good twist think I only know Obama though.
Well that’s already a great start!
This is such a fun idea! Team O all the way!
Hahaha thank you!
Team M! Because… Archer
I knew it Talia!!!
Oooh, I say Team M!
Great choice Mandie!
