Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Artsy reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week we are looking at books we'd mash together. This should be fun, and there will be some awesome combinations out there I imagine. I had fun with this one, but had to make some hard choices too! Here's my take.
I almost feel sorry for Middle earth here. I mean don't get me wrong, M-E can be a rough place, but Westeros? That's a whole other animal.
Can you imagine Murderbot in the Wayfarers universe?
How about the rats of NIMH running around Narnia?
I'm gonna go with Murderbot again- this time in the Star Wars universe.
Katniss and Tris? What about Four? Love triangle!! Would Kat be Dauntless?
How about the X-Men and Suicide Squad? Would Logan and Harley get along?
If they can survive Piloria then Jurassic Park should be a breeze. Right?
I mean they could just join Clone Club at this point?
I don't even know how this would work- it'd probably be a mess.
Could these be mashed together? Might be a trip.
I skipped this one as I had no idea what to do with it but I like some of your choices. X-Men and Suicide Squad would be a lot of fun and Kat would be Dauntless! She and Four would work well together. I haven't read Murderbot yet but I can imagine it working well in a lot of places.ReplyDelete
It was a tough one. I like the idea of X-Men and SS! Logan and Harley would be a riot! And yes I think Tris and Four might get along swimmingly.Delete
First one would be fun! More magical version of Game of Thrones. Katniss and Tris would make a killer team! :)ReplyDelete
I like Katniss and Tris!!Delete
OOoh nice!! Hunger Games and Divergent would definitely be interesting and I've only read the latter! Same with The Extinction and Jurassic Park! Really want to read the former there! Great mashups!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Thanks! I would love to see a Divergent Games...Delete
oooh, so many cool mash-ups! Xmen and Suicide Squad was inspired. They might all kill each other, but it'd be a good movie/book lolReplyDelete
Right? They MIGHT all kill each other, but I just want to see Harley & Logan kick ass...Delete
I did a terrible job with this week's topic (so I skipped it), but you did awesome! NIMH in Narnia sounds really cool, and I like the idea of the Divergent crew participating in the Hunger Games. Well done!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I wanted to fit NIMH in there somewhere! And yes I want to see the Divergent Games- I even like that title!Delete
Middle Earth and Westeros would be wonderful but terrifying. I can definitely see Saruman and Cersei working together. And Rivendell and High Garden would get along great. I'm not sure where the hobbits would fit in though... They seem far too innocent for anywhere in Westeros.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it though? Saruman and Cersei is SCARY. And yes the hobbits would be in trouble in Westeros!Delete
Fun mash up ideas! I don't know all of these books, so I can't really say how they would work but I'm intrigued.ReplyDelete
I slightly deviated from the topic and instead of a top ten, I ended up with one thing: Classics mashed with Space...so basically I failed this week's. But I do love your idea of mixing Tolkien with Martin!ReplyDelete
Ooh I need to come see yours. And wouldn't Tolkien and Martin be a trip?Delete
Great job and list! I didn't even do TTT this week because it required too much thinking lol. I like the Hunger Games/Divergent mash up. Would Katniss and Tris be friends or enemies? Girl drama?ReplyDelete
Thanks Jolene! This one did require some thinking although I went off the top of my head- and the results surprised me! And right? I'm not sure Kat and Tris would get along- at least at first?Delete
You have some great ones here. Hunger Games/Divergent would be great. Love Replica with Orphan Black as well.ReplyDelete
I've coined the term Divergent Games- I like it. And yes the Replica clones might fit right in w/ Clone Club?Delete
I miss the Clone Club so much. I need to read Murderbot. I even have the first one out from the library. Maybe this weekend.ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy! I miss Orphan Black too...Delete
Wow - this is kind of a hard topic but you came up with some really fun stuff. I love the idea of mashing two YA dystopias together!ReplyDelete
Jen Ryland Reviews
I do too- why did I never think of that before lol? Thanks Jen!Delete
FUN! But NO love triangles...please? lolReplyDelete
No prob! I hate 'em too...Delete
I would definitely feel sorry for Middle Earth if it were mashed with Game of Thrones!! Or maybe Middle Earth would make Westeros a little less brutal? Here is our Top Ten TuesdayReplyDelete
I would too. they have no idea...it's possible though!!Delete
Oh wow! You came up with a lot of options for this one. I managed 2. lolReplyDelete
Ha ha it was kinda tough...Delete
X-Men & Suicide Squad sounds like something I'd want to read! Great choices! :)ReplyDelete
I would totally read that!Delete
Oooo fun topic and I can totally see some of these mashing together seamlessly!ReplyDelete
You've put together some fun pairs! I haven't read many of these, but of course, I'm glad to spy Warcross and 'Narnia' on your list. Also in terms of the worlds (don't know about characters) or what I know of them, LOTR and Game of Thrones seem a good fit. :)ReplyDelete
Also Suicide Squad and the X-Men!? Now there'd be an interesting mash up!!
Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.
I had to mix Warcross w/ something. :) I thought LotR and GoT would be interesting too.Delete
And yes X-Men/ Suicide Squad- I'd love it!
The Tithe/Roadside Magic mashup intrigues me.ReplyDelete
I think it would be really fun??Delete
I'm sure Katniss would be Dauntless... I think most YA heroines would. I like the NIMH/Dawn Treader idea and the GoT/LoTR idea as well.ReplyDelete
I think so too. And yeah good point! I think NIMH and dawn Treader would be fun!Delete
lol fun choice!ReplyDelete
I definitely think Katniss would be Dauntless. But what if Tris were brought into Panem...do you think she'd survive the games?ReplyDelete
Have a great week. - Katie
I do too. And that's a good question- I think she's have a shot but honestly- I like Kat's chances better!Delete
You really picked some great pairings. GoT and LOTR are definitely ones that would make for an interesting mash-up. Voyage of the Dawn Treader and the rats of NIMH sounds like it should already be a thing, haha! And Hunger Games and Divergent--now that would be interesting. Great list!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jordan! I want the Divergent Games now. And yes to NIMH in Narnia- we already have Reepicheep, would he get along w/ the rats? I kinda hope so :)Delete
Ooh. I'd love to see LOTR/GoT mash-up and Hunger Games/Divergent!ReplyDelete
I would too. Divergent Games sound SO fun...Delete
I was so close to picking Tolkien and Martin on my list. :)ReplyDelete
Fantastic picks this week! I would LOVE to read a book that combines Martin and Tolkien!ReplyDelete
Anything crossed with Jurassic Park would be a winner in my books. Dinosaurs make everything cooler, it is a fact!ReplyDelete

I haven't read Murderbot, but imagining a murderbot traveling around any universe is concerning lol. Re: Divergent and Hunger Games, don't you mean love hexagon? ;-) I mean, Katniss already had a love triangle going on, so that would get pretty interesting!ReplyDelete
GREG! I'm back here after what? Actually, let's not get into that. FAR TOO LONG!ReplyDelete
Love your choices for this week's topics!
Westeros is SO rough. YIKES. And I laughed about the Katniss and Tris and Four triangle. Kat probably would have been Dauntless... But I think she'd prefer to be in Amity now!
This is such a great list!!! I looooove the idea of GOT and LOTR together! That would be a crazy awesome combination. And putting The Voyage of the Dawn Treader with the Rats of NIMH was so clever! I'd totally read that book. Awesome post!ReplyDelete
A mashup of Tolkien and GRRM?! Yes, please!ReplyDelete
The NIHM rats in Narnia might liven that series up. I didn't like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe at all. 😝ReplyDelete
I love your take on this one! I kind of locked up and skipped it. I love the idea of combing Tolkien and GRRM and yes to Narnia/NIHM rats. That's brilliant!ReplyDelete
Interesting mashups, Greg!! The only one of these I've read is "The Lord of the Rings", but, from what I know of these plots, I think these mashups would be a BLAST!!ReplyDelete
The Martha Wells pairing with the Star Wars universe would probably be HILARIOUS! I mean, Murderbot, C3PO, and R2D2? TOO funny!! :) :)
Thanks for sharing!! <3 :)
Ahhh this is such a fun post - I love seeing unusual books pairing! Divergent and The Hunger Games would make a fun pairing for sure haha, I'd love to figure out Katniss' faction :)ReplyDelete
Wait, wait, wait! The Secret of Nimh is a book???? OMG *runs off to buy it to relive childhood properly*ReplyDelete
I think a lot of mash ups would end up being a mess, but doesn't make you want them any less.ReplyDelete
Haha yes westeros is a compelete different animal. Could you also imagine Smaug and Dani's dragons meeting? Because that would be interesting...ReplyDelete
Murderbot yay! I did a Murderbot mashup with Wells' Raksura series :DReplyDelete
