Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me. At first I wasn’t planning to do this week’s topic, one because nothing was initially coming to mind, and two because I try so hard to be content with what I have and where I am in life, but then I started to think on it some and decided to go for it and came up with 8. This week’s list is in no particular order.
If I could I would wish for…
1. An awesome space to store my books.
I mean, what book lover doesn’t want this?
2. The ability to read books a little faster.
I don’t want lightning speed reading ability… I think there’s something special about taking some time to savor what you read, but I wish I could maybe up my reading count a bit without necessarily devoting more time to read (not that I don’t want to read more, but life is busy!).
3. That I can write and publish books that will resonate with people.
It’s not a secret that I want a career as an author. I hope one day to share multiple stories, and I want them all to mean something to someone.
4. That I could stop losing bookmarks.
I have a serious problem with losing bookmarks. I would like for this to stop!
5. More books in the For Darkness Shows the Stars world.
Diana Peterfreund’s For Darkness Shows the Stars and Across a Star-Swept Sea features one of my favorite fictional worlds ever with its exploration of genetic engineering and its consequences, and I want more! With two books it just doesn’t feel complete! Maybe she could do a Little Women retelling next? There are so many possibilities!
6. To meet Marissa Meyer.
I am thinking this will surely happen one day, but I just want to ensure it! She’s one of my favorite authors and I want to get all the books signed by her and just tell her how much I love her characters!
7. To have the full experience at Universal Studios’ Harry Potter World… for free!
This is definitely a trip my husband and I want to take someday, but it’s not cheap, especially if you want to do it and Disney World in the same go! I would love to be able to take this trip without fear of the money spent.
8. To see a book I write get made into a movie.
I’m sure there are downsides to this, but it’s something I’ve always wanted and would love to see happen! I would try to write into my contract that I get to be a co-producer or something for any possible films.
What are your bookish wishes?
