Hi readers! How are we all? I’m busy as always, especially as it’s now the run-up to Christmas, but I’m happy to say I’ve just finished Christmas shopping! It’s Christmas tree time this weekend and I’m so excited.

Onto today’s subject, there are so many authors I’d love to write like! I’m forever saying ‘I wish I could write like this author’ in my reviews, and I’m sure I’ll have no trouble finding 5 I love.

As I’m sure you’ll see throughout this post, I love poetic writing, and Nicola Yoon does such a good job of it. I adore her concepts for both The Sun is Also a Star and Everything, Everything.

Continuing with the poetry theme, I still marvel over Rupi Kaur’s beautiful, raw writing.

I really admire how Nina LaCour brought so much of her character into the story with Everything Leads To You, and I’m so impressed with her writing style.

Another poetic read, I’ll Give You the Sun includes some of the most beautiful quotes I’ve read in YA.

And finishing on another poetic one, if you love Jandy Nelson I’m sure you’d also adore Emery Lord’s work.

Thanks for reading! Which authors would you love to write like?


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

    1. Thanks for asking! I wish I had more time to elaborate in my posts, but mostly the way they use language. I adore the way Nina uses structure and paces her narrative, and I love the descriptive imagery of When We Collided. All of the authors I chose have a brilliant way with words and they manage to weave such beautiful poetic passages 🙂

  1. I defintiely agree with Nina Lacour. With my contemporary reads, I usually need a little bit of a funky, outlandish plot to keep me entertained but with her book, We Are Okay, she really made what could have been boring super intriguing and interesting. I’m definitely going to have to move Everything Leads to You up on my TBR. Wonderful post! 🙂
