Six For Sunday – A Bookish Mash Up

Good morning people! It’s a Sunday morning so that can only mean one thing, it’s time for another Six for Sunday using one of Steph’s wonderful prompts!

This week I’m putting a slight twist on the prompt (I think) rather than listing characters I’d love to see together in a relationship sense I’m listing characters I’d love to see show up in a book together!

Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of the remaining 2018 prompts here

Characters you’d love to see together


Hermione Granger and Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is probably my favourite detective of all time, I first read the Arthur Conan Doyle’s books as a teenager and I have to admit I do love watching Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock – and Hermione, I so identified her as an 11 year old! Thanks to the Philosopher’s Stone we all know that Hermione is a little bit of a logic queen so I would love to see what a modern day Sherlock would make of a grown up Hermione tagging along on a case – even without magic to really make him rethink everything!

DI McLean, PC Grant and DCI Nightingale

James Oswald and Ben Aaronovitch were the only authors from last week’s Dream Collaboration post where I would actually hope that the collaboration was a crossover novel rather than a brand new bit of literature. DI McLean deals with weird stuff up in Scotland all the time, so I would love for him to take a little trip down to London for a case and cross paths with PC Grant, DCI Nightingale and all the weird stuff they come across on a daily basis. Maybe even throw in The Faceless Man!

Lyra Belacqua and Sally Lockhart

Both of these are female characters I love created by Philip Pullman, I’d love to put a grown up Lyra and Sally together and if that means extra daemon cuteness I’m all for that!

DI Robyn Carter and Detective Lottie Parker

Two female detectives I discovered in 2017 and really enjoy reading about. I think it would be fantastic if a case happened to take Robyn over to Ireland and into Lottie’s town.

Jules Ember and Maddie Manchester

Following the end of Everless I can’t help but thing Jules could do with a little help on the survival front and Maddie could be just the person to help out!

Moriarty and…. Someone

Moriarty is the second of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters to appear on my list, Andrew Scott is incredible in Sherlock and I loved Anthony Horowitz’s novel Moriarty. I’d love to see a novel where Moriarty and some other fantastic bad guy team up and create chaos! I just can’t decide who should form the other half of the evil genius pairing!
