Wonderland. I’m so glad you made this space one of your Top Ten Tuesday stops.
Let’s take a look at today’s topic.

this being an idea I thought sounded epic (and fun), as I sit down to put this
post together, my bookish mind draws a blank. This is perhaps what I get for
not better thinking this through. Or jotting down notes – like what books did I
have in mind at the time? what books DO sound like epic mash-ups!?
my mind remains a blank canvas.
the spirit of today’s theme, today’s list is all over the place (aka it gets
the mix up treatment) wherein I talk about a few mashups I’ve yet to see happen,
a few that already have (and I hope these are epic) and general author/style
Jane Austen meets Kasie West | Though Kasie West has written many YA-lite
novels that mirror (in certain respects) Austen-esque themes, who else thinks
she’d write a dynamic contemporary Austen series!? Her style seems ideally
suited to these stories. Amazon | Goodreads
P+P+Z by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith meets Northanger Abbey by Jane
Austen | Though I did (much to my surprise) enjoy Pride and Prejudice and
Zombies, who here thinks it’s Catherine Morland who’d actually slay in this
Amazon | Goodreads ▪ Northanger Abbey on Amazon Video
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen meets Spies (Spies and Prejudice by Talia
Vance) | This mashup has already happened thanks to Talia’s Spies and
Prejudice. Because I mean really, who else things Lizzy Bennet would be a
rock star in the spy game!? I mean I love spy movies, and I love Pride and Prejudice, so basically this mash up is a must-read.
and Prejudice: Amazon | Goodreads
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas meets Steampunk! | Because, why
not? Don’t you think Edmund’s brooding hero would fit into the steampunk
era nicely? I like to think so. Amazon | Goodreads ▪ The Count of Monte Cristo on Amazon Video
Wait for Me by Caroline Leech meets Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte | This pair
is kind of weird (but that’s part of the charm of today’s topic, right?) since
I’ve read neither one of these books. However, as I put this list together, for
some reason seeing the Jane Eyre story told during the 1940s (which is
the timeframe for Wait for Me) sounds like the potential for a great
meets Unblemished by Sara Ella | Recently I began to read Hushed, a contemporary Little
Mermaid re-telling that strips away all of the magic. This is an idea I
like and in fact wouldn’t wish to see changed, but do wish Hushed had a better fairytale voice like Sara Ella’s Unblemished.
swirls the thoughts that any of Charles Dickens stories would rock the steampunk era. They already
have that kind of dark brooding vibe, so why not see them in the creative and
Gothic-esque world of steampunk? Who else thinks Bleak House would be cool as a steampunk story?
