I'm jealous -- of who?
I love his books. I love them so much that I can't get them out of my head once I'm immersed in his world.
I've been listening to the UGLIES series -- right now, I'm about a third of the way through SPECIALS. I swear, I haven't been able to get the books out of my mind all night. When I should be writing, I'm thinking about what will happen with Tally...and Zane...and David...
Funny, because I've read the books before and I KNOW what happens. LOL.
What I want to be thinking about are my own characters. My own world, and what happens next in the scene I'm working on.
You have to wonder. Why do certain books just hit that spot with you? While others, while good, don't stick with you for more than a day? These books just stick.
Like lightning in a bottle, I want to know his secret.
Take a bow, Scott Westerfeld. I'll be honest, I want to be you. :)
So, what authors really do it for you?
