Reading is like a gateway drug that leads some to the destructive lifestyle of writing. Almost every book I have ever read has impacted me and my writing in someway.
As a teacher though I have seen first hand that the ability for creative writing in children seems to be dwindling. The amount of times I have been given an awkward recount of a movie or a game. It’s kind of a worry.
This is a great list of books that can give that important spark of creativity. This is directed at teens, but in my opinion a good book, is a good book. Regardless of its target age.
Plus I always like getting recommendations of new books I should read.
