Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly bookish feature hosted by
Today's Topic: Creative Writing 101
I am very excited about this Top-Ten Tuesday topic because it allows you to pick a book theme to teach to a class. My theme for this class would have to be creative writing. I love an author that can blow my mind and get me to question everything I just read. I love it when they can blow me away with their details in their setting and make me feel like I am standing right next to these characters. I like an author that can write a sentence that changes my perspective. I love it when writing is so beautiful it makes me want to remember that quote forever. Creative writing can look very different and I love writing with originality and beauty.
Here are some of books that I would definitely discuss in my creative writing class!
Brandon writes with such importance. You feel like you are reading something very important and so much bigger than yourself and the characters. I love his world building and I think he is in the king of blowing your mind. He is a genius.
"There is always another secret."
Renee did an amazing job creating this beautiful book. She is a debut author! She writes with such great intensity. I love all the details in this beautiful world.
"When she wound her fingers in his hair to draw her body against his, he stilled for breath, and she knew, as he knew, that they were lost. Lost forever. In this kiss. This kiss that would change everything."
This is one of my all-time favorite books. It is crafted so beautifully and her writing is amazing. It makes you laugh. It make you cry. It makes you want to go places and see new things. It changes your outlook about mental disorders. Just read it. It's amazing!!
"When we're in the act of wandering, we need to be present, not watching it through the lens."
"You are all the colors in one, at full brightness."
If you have read any of my TTT it probably has this book listed. Laini has such a whimsical writing style. She is amazing at world building and creating such creative and unique characters.
"Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic."
I loved the first two books in the series.They were fantastic, but this one was INCREDIBLE! It is amazing to see authors grow and start to expand their world and their characters. She became one of my favorites after reading this book. This story went from great to epic! I can't get enough of this world and the characters. I am so invested into this story.
"It would not take a monster to destroy a monster- but light, light to drive out the darkness."
This book has such a unique writing style. You are either going to love it or hate it. I LOVE it! The writing is so suspenseful, unique and lyrical.
Rainbow's writing is flawless. It is so perfectly simple and so impactful. I think her writing is so soulful and I just love it!
"I choose you over everyone."
The Enchanted is such a unique and poetically written story. It takes places in a prison that is also enchanted. It is amazing how an author can take something so sad and horrific and make it beautiful. I loved this one, especially the ending.
"Your worst dungeon might be the room with the most windows."
I could not talk about creative writing without mentioning this amazing book. If you want a book with powerful characters, impactful messages or you just want to cry your eyes out, this book is for you. It is my favorite book. I love it all. It is not a fast story. It is extremely slow and beautiful. The narrator of the book is death. I have never read any book with a more unique narrator.
"I have to say that although it broke my heart, I was, and still am, glad I was there."
This book has a very unique writing style. I was not sold on the writing style in the beginning of the book. But, it stole my heart and this book would not be the same without this lyrical writing. The connections that are created in this book are so amazing. Love It!
"His soul might be the sun. I've never met anyone who had the sun for a soul."
Who do you think has the most amazing writing?
It was hard to even narrow this down to a top ten.
I would love to hear who are your favorite creative writers!
