10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Today’s topic: 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me (a new book from a certain author, a reading superpower, a library that is your absolutely #librarygoals, a character to come to life, to met a certain author etc. etc.) YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT.

A new book from a certain author:

  1. J.K. Rowling – I think we’d all like more books set in the wizarding world of Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Harry Potter
  2. Morgan Matson – contemporary is my jam and Morgan Matson is the queen of contemporary. I need a new book from her every month.

Reading superpower:

  1. To read quicker. I think it goes without saying, but I would definitely like to be able to read more books. There’s never enough time.
  2. To know instantly the inspiration behind certain scenes, characters, or settings. This might spoil some of the fun, but I found it quite interesting interacting with an author while reading her first book and finding out where she got her inspiration. Since it’s a superpower this power can be channeled meaning it doesn’t instantly happen, just when you want it to.

#librarygoals: It’s so hard to choose just 2 in this category, but I do so enjoy all libraries from clean and simplistic to Ivy League, dark wood, and ladders.

Characters to come to life:

  1. Sloane from Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – I relate to this character so much. Her style, presence and attitude make me believe we would easily be friends.
  2. The trio (Harry, Hermione, and Ron) from the Harry Potter series – Yes, they “came alive” in the movies, but seriously though can’t I be the 4th?!

Authors I would like to meet:

  1. Rainbow Rowell – I absolutely love all her books, she seems so nice, and I think we would have good conversation.
  2. Veronica Rossi – Maybe I could convince her to write more books, plus I used some quotes from the Under the Never Sky trilogy in my wedding vows (with her permission). It would have been lovely to have her attend my wedding.
