10 Wishes For The Book Genie

Today's topic for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is 10 wishes we'd like the Book Genie to grant us -- "You dream it and the Book Genie can do it!" Why, oh why, can't the Book Genie be real? Because I'd really like a couple wishes; I don't even need a full 10!

1. I wish that... J.K. Rowling would write more books set in the Harry Potter universe.

2. I wish for... every bookish product I've saved on Etsy and Pinterest to magically appear on my doorstep.

3. I wish for... a local public library that looks like this:

(New York Public Library)

4. I wish for... an advance copy of "Morningstar" by Pierce Brown (the last book in the Red Rising trilogy, due out in January.) Bonus points if it's delivered to my door by Pierce himself!

5. I wish for... more hours in the day to read! My TBR list is overwhelming, and the only way to make it less so is to read more!

6. I wish for... a home library like this:
7. I wish that... Paula McLain would come the library where I work to do a reading. (Not totally unrealistic; she lives in Ohio too!)

8. I wish for... new books from Deborah Harkness and Gillian Flynn.

9. I wish to... be an extra in the movie version of one of my favorite reads ("Ready Player One" or "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" would both be ok).

10. I wish for... a big ol' stack of old wooden library card catalog cabinets! (My birthday is coming up... hint hint!)


  1. I think #5 is one that every bookworm wants!
    My TTT:

    1. You're right -- I'm pretty sure something along those lines was on every TTT list I looked at!

    1. Apparently my wish sorta came true... Did you hear about the new play, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child"?

  3. I would love more Harry Potter books! And for more hours in the day I can devote to reading. It'd be fun to be an extra in a movie based on a book you loved. I should have put on my list that I'd like to have my name as a character in a book . . .

    1. Ooh, I like the idea of a book character named after me! What kind of character would you want to have your name? Mine would definitely have to be bookish and love dogs. Apparently there's a cozy mystery series about a librarian named Lindsey (close enough) who has a dog, which sounds a heck of a lot like me, and I keep meaning to check the books out!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
