Top Ten Tuesday #36

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which features a variety of bookish top ten lists!

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

1.
I wish that ALL the Sarah J. Maas books would be out. Right now. That's right, I want Throne of Glass #5 & #6 and I want all of the ACOTAR sequels, in my hands.  After that all I need is like...a month vacation...to read, and subsequently drown in feels...and then reread ALL of the books all over again.

2. I wish for Brandon Sanderson to finish writing The Stormlight Archives before I die.  Those books are ALL beasts and he's only starting on book #3 as we speak. It's giving me serious anxiety guys so needless to say, I'd rest easy knowing that the series would be his primary focus so I'd know that I'd get to read all of the books before I die O.O

3.
I wish for an unlimited gift card to the bookstore of my choice. Ok, ok - if it's not unlimited, then I want a ridiculous amount on there...like a million dollars.  That should at least make a dent in my wishlist/tbr shelf.

4. I wish for the library/bookcase of my dreams to store all of these new books and my favorite books in style. Something along the lines of:

5. I wish that all my bookish friends could magically  have my favorite and most recommended books appear on their shelves.  But I guess this this wish could tie into wish #3

6. I wish that the book genie would grant me a TARDIS or a Time-Turner so that I could have more time to read all the books...as well as time to work on my own story.

7.  I wish that J.K.Rowling would write more books in the Harry Potter Universe. As much as I'd love to know more about Harry and Co. I'd be over the moon if she did a series on the Marauders!

8. And while we're on the topic of good ol' J.K.,  I NEED that Harry Potter Encyclopaedia that she promised us waaaay back. O.O

9. I wish that I had the ability to read super fast and still absorb things fully.  This, coupled with my #6 wish would be my best hope at making it through my tbr shelf in this lifetime.

10. I wish that I had the power to know if I'll like a book just by looking at it. It would save SO much time and it would also eliminate the draw of reading a book solely based on it's pretty cover (and avoiding those with ugly covers).

  1. Great list, Micheline! 2 made me giggle (I'm sure you won't die before he finishes that series :P) and 3 would be such a dangerous one. I'd literally have no room left in my house for anything else, it'd just be books. And it would be awesome. 5 and 10 are great ones, too - 10 especially would come in very useful, wouldn't it? :)

    1. Thanks Jess! And I hope you're right LOL Well, we could always build a book-house and just LIVE INSIDE OF ALL OF THE BOOKS :D #5 would just make my bookish heart VERY happy and yeah #10 would save a buttload of time ;)

    1. WooHoo! Thanks Andrea XD Seriously though, unlimited gift cards for books and then a TARDIS/Time Turner would literally solve ALL of our bookish problems!! ♥

  3. I love all those fun, cozy libraries. They make my book-loving heart happy :) And, yes, I'd love it if Rowling would write more books for kids. They don't have to be in the Harry Potter world (although that would be awesome), just something fun and imaginative.

    Happy TTT!

  4. A lot of money on giftcards to use in bookstores, YES PLEASE. I also need more books around the Harry Potter world. The Marauders would be an awesome beginning and I'd love to see more of Dumbledore and Minerva.

    1. OMG YES. More on Dumbledore and Minerva would be pure gold!!! Man, basically ANYTHING new from JKR from the HP World would be THE BEST THING EVER. And of course, gift cards: we ALL need tons of those :D

  5. OH MY GOOOOD!!!!! I DIDN'T KNOW THAT YOU WERE A BRANDON SANDERSON FAN!!!!! ISN'T THAT THE ABSOLUTE BEST THING I'VE READ ALL DAY?!?! His Stormlight Archives is seriously the legitimate of the legitimate epic books out there. I love both Way of Kings and Words of Radiance to bits, even if Shallan annoyed me a little at first (I didn't liker her stealing from her mentor who I adored hahahahaha). I REALLY HOPE HE GETS TO FINISH THEM SOON BEFORE I DIE OR BEFORE HE DIES. It's such a work of art, that series.

    1. YAAAS! A fellow Stormlight Archives fangirl!!!!! *high fives Faye* Isn't that series THE BEST THING?! I know that Mistborn seems to be more popular and as much as I adore that series, Stormlight Archives just took everything to a whole other level! Yeah, I know what you mean about Shallan - I HATED that she was going to steal from her EPIC mentor (who I adored too!) but I'm glad that things worked out :D A-GREED. SUCH a work of art ♥

  6. I really wish I thought to ask for a limitless gift card. I got a little silly with my wishes and probably wasted a few. Great list of wishes!

    1. Silly wishes are fun too! But yeah, a limitless gift card would solve a lot of issues and concerns...then we'd just need time to read through all of our goodies LOL!

    1. Thank you lady^^ ♥ Yeah...the bookcases are simply too dreamy. I think about them all the time XD

      Delete
  8. OMG those bookcases! And I'd love a million dollars to spend on books!

    Your Stormlight wish is kind of morbid but I hope it comes true lol That's one thing I (hopefully) don't have to worry about because I'm so

    1. oops, my comment got cut off!

      I mean to say I'm so much younger than Sanderson lol

      Delete
    2. LOL well, I'm only like 4 years younger than Sanderson and with the size those books are, I find myself worrying that either he won't finish them before he dies OR that something happens on my end and I don't get to read them to completion. I just have TOO MUCH LOVE for that series and the fact that only 2 books are out gives me anxiety o.O

  9. Yes Yes Yes Yes! To all of those :D. I love the library pics you put up. That's a dream for sure to have amazing and stylish bookshelves! Imagining having the ability to know whether you'd like a book just by looking at it would be so time-saving and also helpful in catching books you may have missed all-together.

  10. Ahh yes, a time turner would be useful, wouldn't it? And I like that one about reading really fast - I always feel sad when I think of all the books I still want to read and the fact that I'll never be able to do that.
    And yes, whenever I think about winning the lottery or something my first two thoughts are: 1) travel the world; 2) buy all the books.
    Great list! :)

  11. I wish for so many of the items on your list! All of SJM's future books, for sure, along with some kind of Marauders series. And we so, so NEED a Time-Turner or a TARDIS to give us more reading time- there are just not enough hours in the day!

  12. I so agree on the shelf thing - that would be my #1 wish: to have enough SPACE for my books. Putting them in a corner and on the floor just makes me feel terrible!!
