Top Five Wednesday: Authors I’d Like to Write Like

Many readers dream of one day publishing their own book. While I don’t practice creative writing myself too much these days, it’d be amazing to be able to dedicate my life to storytelling. The following authors would inspire me through their creative and beautiful stories and writing styles.

Rainbow Rowell (Fangirl. Eleanor & Park, Carry On, Attachments, and Landline) Besides her characters and writing style, I love the premises of all of Rainbow Rowell’s stories. I think they’re all just so creative and accurately depict how people feel, whether if they’re a girl who writes fan fiction or a boy who’s trying to navigate life in the wizarding world with his part-vampire roommate. AND I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT FOR HER GRAPHIC NOVEL WITH FAITH ERIN HICKS! IT’S ABOUT A PUMPKIN PATCH AND FOOD, GUYS!!!

Jenny Han (The Summer I Turned Pretty and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogies)- Jenny Han is just like Rainbow Rowell for me in the sense that I’m in love with all of the ideas she comes up with for her books!

Jandy Nelson (The Sky is Everywhere and I’ll Give You the Sun)- If there’s one thing that I remember from I’ll Give You Sun, it’s Jandy Nelson’s beautiful writing style. Hopefully 2018 will bering a new Jandy Nelson novel!

Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere)- Celeste Ng has a writing style that I just fall into, and I remember not wanting to let go of Little Fires Everywhere this summer.

Morgan Matson (Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, Second Chance Summer, Since You’ve Been Gone, and The Unexpected Everything) Like Celeste Ng and honestly all of the authors above, Morgan Matson has a writing style that I’m so obsessed with that I become shocked over how many pages I’ve flown through! Her books are also perfect summer contemporaries (aka the best kind of contemporary books) AND HAVE THE BEST COVERS! DOGS MAKES COVERS EVEN MORE MAGICAL!
