I am really excited for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, because a magical book genie is going to grant me 10 bookish wishes.
Nah, just kidding. But at least I’ll get to rave about nonexistent stuff, right? *silently cries because wishes can never truly be fullfilled*
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish (and if you haven’t already guessed, it takes place on Tuesdays). They’ll give you a prompt (such as the Top Ten Contemporary Books You’ve Read), and then you post a list of those things with descriptions! You can use any format: vlog, bullet list, pictures… whatever you want! It’s a great way to see what other bloggers are reading and to connect with them. If you’d like to check out this week’s linkup, click here.
WISH #1: GIVE ME AN EVERLASTING SUPPLY OF MONEY TO BUY BOOKS WITH
I mean, duh. I’m gonna need all the money I can get to afford all the beautiful books that I collect. AND READ.
WISH #2: ALLOW ME TO NEVER HAVE TO PAY LIBRARY FEES
Gahhh, this gets me so hard sometimes, especially when I get huge stacks of library books (15+) and then forget to return them!
WISH #3: BESTOW UPON ME ALL THE COMIC BOOKS IN THE WORLD
My new love of graphic novels & comics is amazing, and I need all of them because I read them so quickly.
WISH #4: PROMISE TO ME THAT THE TV SHOW OF THRONE OF GLASS WILL BE EPIC
Oh god. Throne of Glass is such a beautiful and epic series, and I need the TV show to be all that and more. If it turns out like the City of Bones movie, I may kill myself.
WISH #5: BLESS ME WITH ALL THE ROOM I NEED ON MY BOOKSHELVES
I mean, giving me all the money I’ll ever need to buy books is pretty good. But what’s the point if I’m not gonna have any room on my shelves?
WISH #6: SUMMON FOR ME A MAGICAL APP THAT WILL DECIDE IF I SHOULD PICK UP A BOOK REQUESTED FOR REVIEW
I assume that once my blog starts getting more followers, I will attract more attention with authors and they will naturally come to me, begging for a review for their books. But I really will need some sort of app on my phone to assess the summary and content of the books beforehand, and then decide if I should put my reading and reviewing time into that book.
WISH #7: FLOOD INTO ME THE POWER TO GIVE UP BOOKS IF I DISLIKE THEM
Never again do I want to continue with a book or series if I dislike it (I’m looking at you, Kiera Cass). There’s just not enough time in this life to read sh**ty things.
WISH #8: GIVE ME THE HEALING POWER TO NEVER RUIN MY BOOKS AGAIN
The pages of my books need a little break from the constant spills and stains. I mean, it marks that I’ve read & (hopefully) loved the book, but still… It’s kind of gross.
WISH #9: RESURRECT WITHIN ME THE MEMORIES OF THE FIRST TIME I READ MY FAVORITE BOOKS
It’s so sad that I’ve forgotten what it was like to experience Harry Potter for the first time. If I cannot reread these books with a fresh slate, then I want to remember my feelings for them.
WISH #10: GRACE ME WITH ACTUAL ART SKILLS SO I MAY DRAW LOVING FANART
I need to stop being so jealous of all these talented people on Tumblr (ahem, Linneart) and just create my own freaking stuff.
OK, there you have it. Those are all the things I desire… no, I need from the almighty Book Genie. And there’ll be hell to pay if they don’t come tru
So tell me, what are some bookish things you desire from the genie? Remember, I’m the one getting everything. But maybe your ideas will spark another request from me.
