Doctor Who and Young Adult Book Pairings

I’m back again with another round of pairing young adult books and characters from media. This time I’m featuring the Doctors. New Who is my jam so that’s what I’m focusing on today.

See more book pairings here.

9th Doctor

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Rhen and Nine are dealing with a lot of grief and baggage. They feel like the world is on their shoulders.

10th Doctor

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Thomas and Ten share a sense of adventure, wit, & willingness to do anything for their loved ones. Plus Audrey Rose + Rose? They’d be great friends.

11th Doctor

Jackaby by William Ritter

The second I was introduced to Jackaby, I immediately saw the parallels with Eleven. They’re fast talking, wisecracking, & have a deep sense of justice.

12th Doctor

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Todd and Twelve will fight for what’s right but along the way, they’ve grown hardened by the wars and terrible things they’ve seen.

13th Doctor

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

I’m still on the fence about how I feel about Thirteen. The thing that stood out to me the most about Thirteen was her optimism. She and Anne share unfailingly optimism in the face of anything that life throws at them.

  1. Well thought out email! I haven’t read any of the books, but Stalking Jack The Ripper. They are on my list now! I absolutely adore Thomas and Audrey Rose! I haven’t ever watch Doctor Who. I probably really should!
