Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
I feel like choosing 10 wishes for a genie is cheating the system since most genies only give out 3 wishes. Perhaps the book genie gives out more than 3? And I’m hoping there aren’t any rule, or a few, uh, provisos, a, a couple of quid pro quos…
Here are my Top Ten wishes I’d want the book genie to grant me:
For my first wish… I wish for the gift of words so that I can write/finish any of my works in progress.
For my second wish… I wish for a copy of Why Not Me?
For my third wish… I wish that I could have brunch with Mindy Kaling and she would sign my copy of Why Not Me? because we are such good friends.
For my fourth wish… I wish to find a hidden gem of a book that speaks to me so profoundly like Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married did when I picked it up at age 20.
For my fifth wish… I wish for some lovely built in bookshelves in my living room.
For my sixth wish… I wish that I could visit Narnia… but not during the 100 years of winter. Preferably during the Golden Age when Edmund is a grown up. 😉
For my seventh wish… I wish I could have a big swoony romantic scene straight out of the most romantic book I could ever imagine.
For my eight wish… I wish that every time I found a quote I loved in a book it would automatically be filed in a separate quote book so whenever I needed a good quote I could easily refer to that book.
For my ninth wish… I wish to finish Jane Eyre before I die.
For my tenth wish… I wish that the friendships I’ve made because of books last a lifetime.
