This month we are talking about the books we wish we'd written. I quickly discovered that this is a difficult topic for me--I have soooo many books I wish I'd written. Universes full of fan-dom. I'm not completely sure how to thin the list down to a manageable size. Every time I think I'm done, I find another book. So, I added books until I had to stop and go pick up my kids. LOL! Random but effective.
Because I can't rank the books on the list by their awesomeness (they are all on the list because they are fabulous) I let the file loader decide the order of presentation.
Drum roll please...
Because who doesn't love Ramona? Seriously--I don't need to say more. A classic.
Because I want to write something brave that makes a difference in the world.
Because I want to write outside of the box--the creativity in this novel is captivating.
Because I love seeing the world through the eyes of someone who is worth knowing better.
Because the world building is epic and exciting and beautiful.
Because I want to write a book that concretely captures something as elusive as imagination.
(In reference to the whole LUNAR CHRONICLES) Because I've never had so many different characters that I am attached to. Just when I think I couldn't possibly love another--I find the room.
Because I want to write a book that makes ordinary people extraordinary.
Because I want to write a book that teaches people to see with their hearts as much as they see with their eyes.
