Top Ten Tuesday- Wishes From My Bookish Genie

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (October 20th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Wishes I'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

Usually you just get 3 wishes right??  How cool is the Book Genie for giving me 10??

  • Can you force J.K. Rowling to write more Harry Potter (and get rid of/rewrite that epilogue).  Maybe a Marauder's prequel???

  • Can I please meet Courtney Summers??  Please, please, please?  (oh, and also maybe not be embarrassing and awkward when I do it?  Yeah that might be asking too much.)

  • After meeting Gayle Forman and Maggie Stiefvater, I realized we need to be BFFs.  They are 2 of the coolest people EVER.

  • I would really like to read faster.  Because reading faster = more books per year read.

  • I need 1 book/year from: Jandy Nelson, Nina LaCour, Courtney Summers, and Lauren Strasnick.  The reason I say these people is that I LOVE their work, but they make me waittttt way too long.

  • I really don't want The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer to end with Winter.  I want more backstories, more fairy tales woven in, more EVERYTHING.

  • This might be my most selfish wish.  I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity and I want everyone to write what they are inspired to write... at the same time, I would really like it if Sarah Mlynowski, E. Lockhart, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Lauren Oliver would only write YA.  You see, they write a lot of MG and that makes me have to wait longer for the new YA stuff :(

  • I wish that my list from last week would come true.  Dream collaborations that I would die to read from people like: Huntley Fitzpatrick & Sarah Ockler, Michelle Hodkin & Nova Ren Suma, etc.

  • I would really like to be able to remember more about all the books I read.  I try to keep track of plots in a notebook, but there are all sorts of little details (and character's names) that escape me.

  • I want to be able to buy all the books and bookish things I like.  So many cool editions of books I want, so many book related items I'm pining for.

What did you ask your bookish genie for?

  1. Ah great wishes!!!! I would love to read faster. Then I could get through that never-ending TBR faster!! More book funds for sure. And YES to more Lunar Chronicles. I love that series so much. Great list!!

  2. I love your list! Definitely more Harry Potter and money to buy all bookish things :D

    My Top Ten

  3. Great wishes. I also wished for more Harry Potter. I like those items on your wishlist if you had more book funds too :)

  4. Great wishes. I also wished for more Harry Potter. I like those items on your wishlist if you had more book funds too :)

  5. Great wishes! I want more time and more money for bookish things too! Here's my TTT. Happy reading!

  6. Your number one was my number two! :) And I totally agree on The Lunar Chronicles. I'm reading Cress now, and I would love to have even more of those books to read!

  7. More book funds and more time to read would be the dream!

    My TTT.

  8. I don't know why I didn't ask for more book funds. That wasn't smart of me. Great list!

    My TTT

  9. That book print is so cute! I'm also still hoping that one day I'll wake up to an announcement of a Marauders prequel. That would be everything!

  10. Better Book Memory! I'd really like that one too. I try to take notes and jot down important details as I read but sometimes it's just hard to keep track XP

  11. I certainly need more book funds, I hadn't even considered that! I'd like better book memory of the books I read when I was younger, but because I have the brain of a goldfish I've started writing notes throughout novels I read so that I can look back on the notable occurrences and characters to save time re-reading when sequels come out :)

  12. Love your wishlist this week. I also wish that I had better book memory and more funds for books as well.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/10/top-ten-tuesday-10-wishes-id-ask-book.html

  13. I would definitely want to read faster! I also want to be friends with Maggie! It would literally be the coolest.

  14. Here, here to more book funds! I think we can all agree on that "wish" ;) I'd also love to be able to read faster. I used to be a speedy reader and now I'm so s l o w. Super fun TTT post!

  15. I wish that someone would magically write my reviews. I'll still dictate them, but I want the computer to, like, format and spellcheck and basically do the hard part of it. I'll just do the talking.
