Man! I wish I wrote that!

I just started reading the Fire series by Chris D'Lacey. I'm almost through "The Fire Within" and am loving it! I can tell I'll buy the book series-- provided they don't take a weird turn like the "Pure Dead Magic" series.

I keep finding myself thinking "I wish I had thought of that!" "What a great idea!" "Can I use that idea without copying it fraudulently? (lol)"

Do you ever feel that way? For what books? And not just for books because you wish you were making the millions of dollars that say.... Stephanie Meyer is. But because it's a fantastic idea?

Fablehaven and Ranger's Apprentice are two that I can think of off the top of my head.

I was just feeling this way while I was reading Forest Born by Shannon Hale. Her rich language left me in awe.
