Like Frappuccino’s and books, everything comes better in twos. Tom and Jerry, Ben and Jerry (lot’s of Jerrys in these iconic duos), Sherlock and Watson, Watson and Crick (there’s a Watson theme now…) garlic bread and pizza, ice cream and flakes (I’m just hungry now) I could go on. So why not books? I’ve been tagged by the wonderful Beth at Reading Every Night to do this quite funny tag all about books that go together **cue Greece Music**
The Hate U Give and To Kill a Mockingbird
Similar themes, both with an important message and narrated in a YA coming of age style. Also they both centre around a court case so yeah a pretty good pairing in my humble opinion. Almost as good as butter and icing sugar…
Caravel and The Night Circus
Do you like mystical games? Do you enjoy scary circus’s and cryptic characters and never really knowing what’s going on? With a dramatic ending to top it all off, accompanied by a sinister back drop? These two would make great shelf buddies.
The Hunger Games and Divergent
Because if you’re a fan of strong female characters, tyrannical governments and rebellions that teeter on the edge of failure then give these both a read. A combo as good as chocolate and raspberry.
Children of Blood and Bone and Skulduggery Pleasant
Both full of funny, confident characters, mystical powers and a girl who has no idea how powerful she is. Lot’s of laughs and quips ensured if you read this duo, as great Nutella and cheese. And yes, that is a thing.
Children of Blood and Bone and Rebel of the Sands
On a similar vein to The Hunger Games, these are stuffed with rebellious teenagers, tyrannical dictatorships, powers no-one quite understands and a writing style that’ll knock your socks off. A great combo in my opinion, almost as good as chips and mayo!
