I see it as a huge success that I actually get to post my Top Ten Tuesday post, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish seen as the internet was a real hassle yesterday. I love this week’s theme, because you can just be as creative as you like with it. There are no boundaries as to the “10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me“-topic. Everything is possible and nothing is off limits!!! How awesome is that?
First things first: I want to introduce you to my genie, Cyrus! Magic usually comes at a price, but I bet he wouldn’t screw me over with my wishes. He’s awesome and kind and good-looking (man, do I miss Once Upon a Time in Wonderland sometimes …). Now, I am already super psyched that I get more than 3 wishes. Let’s do this!
1. Having Enough Money to Get Any Book I Like
Wouldn’t that be awesome? No more worrying about how I best use the money I have. Facing the difficult decision as to what I buy and what has to wait is always cruel. Well, thanks to my genie I no longer have to think about that!
2. Never Ending Library
My perfect library would be like the TARDIS, from the outside it looks like a normal-sized room, but then you go in and it’s bigger on the inside. There’d be rows upon rows of bookshelves. *sigh* Book heaven!
3. No More Waiting for Release Dates
I want a book/sequel/entire series but it’s not out yet? Doesn’t matter, because it seems I can just have it now.
4. A Job That Is Fun, Yet Allows Me to Read/Blog As Much As I Like
Does something like that exist? One would think so, right? There has to be something out there! Is it too much to ask to have a job that I really, really like? I’ve had jobs that I could see myself doing in the future, but blogging suffered a little while doing them and I hated that. Blogging already is sort of like my fun part-time job and I don’t want to give up on it.
5. Super reading-speed
It’s not that I don’t appreciate books and want to take time for each one of them, but there are so many out there and I WANT TO READ THEM ALL. Obviously this takes time, so if I could just read faster, that would make it a lot easier to read everything I want to read.
6. Teleportation Powers to Get to Book Events
It could be a reading, signing, BookCon – whatever! I want to be there and flying takes such a long time and getting through customs and stuff is annoying … you know what I mean, right?
7. Getting to Spend Some Time On Set With the Shadowhunters Cast
I LOVE the Shadowhunter universe Cassandra Clare has created and I am so terribly impatient for the show to come out next January. If you’ve followed the cast on social media just a little bit, you should know that they had a blast on set. I know that they’ve already wrapped and that shooting is over, but I hope there’ll be a second season and I want to be there and just hang out with everyone.
8. Meeting ALL My Favourite Authors
I can’t even name them all, but the list goes something like this: Tahereh Mafi, Cassandra Clare, Ransom Riggs, Victoria Aveyard, Andy Weir, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Stephanie Perkins, …
9. Being Able to Read Myself Into a Story/a Character Out of a Story
Have you read Inkheart? That’s pretty much Mo’s and Meggie’s super power and yes, that doesn’t always work out in their favour. However, I’d still like to be able to do that. I could go and spend a day in Wonderland and then, if for some reason I’d need a date for a masquerade ball, I’d read Tamlin or Lucien from ACOTAR out of the book to accompany me. Or I could go and raid the closet of a character I particularly like to get myself some new clothes. That would really open up an infinite amount of possibilities.
10. Books For Everyone
Last but not least, I don’t want to use up all the wishes just for myself. No one should go without the possibility of reading and the great sensation of escapism that comes with it in their lives. I say: BOOKS FOR EVERYONE!
Okay, now I am mostly super sad that I can’t have any of my wishes, but hey, one can still dream. What did you wish for TTT? Share a link to your post in the comments!!
