Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Wishes I'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
To take part, just pick your top ten, and add the link here.

I Wish for....

1. An endless book buying budget. Books are pricey and I want them all. Asking for endless book money doesn't seem as bad as just asking for free books forever.

2. A time bubble (To stop time while reading) so I could have all the time in the world to read all the books I want to read. So many books, so little time.

3.  A Beauty and the Beast size library for all the books I can ever want. I mean, who wouldn't want one?

4. The ability to meet and have lunch with any character from any book any time I want. There are so many characters I would like to meet, some because they are my favorites, some because I want to slap them. Oh, and the authors of those books. Have lunch with Sarah J. Maas and Cealena for example.

5. A list of every book I've ever read in my entire life. When I was a kid, and a pre-teen, the internet was barely a thing. I don't remember all the Nancy Drew and Boxcar Children books I read in grade school.

6. To never get writers block or lose inspiration/motivation. Writing is another passion of mine, but I have hit a wall about a year ago, and I am really stuck.

7. For all my books to magically be the same height. (When will publishers learn we like our book shelves to be uniform?)

8. For there to NEVER be a movie cover for books. I don't like seeing the actor's face on my book. It takes away the imagination of first time readers who may have not yet seen the movie/show. (one of the greatest things about Harry Potter, there was never and never will be a movie cover for those glorious books)

9. To remember details of all the books I've read better. Sometimes, if I didn't enjoy the book as much or I kind of rushed reading it, I don't remember details very well.

10. To always get to go to Book events. Book signings of my favorite authors, BookCon, BEA. The works.


  1. Fantastic list, Marie! :-) I agree with so many of your wishes!

  2. YES to the Beauty and the Beast size library!! That is the #1 reason why it is one of y favorite movies. I also hate movie cover books. Ugh. I don't want or need them! Here is my top ten:

  3. All of these are perfect! And #4 definitely!!!!!

    My TTT

  4. YES!!!! I had a whole post abut #8 lol so I totally agree. #1 for sure. I would love to not worry about $$and just buy whatever books I wanted! Great wishes!

  5. yesssss I love your wishes lol. My entire post is about wanting my own library room My TTT

  6. Great list! Especially # 2 & #8. Who doesn't want the B&tB library? And I agree that I hate movie covers. Or even worse, when they put a movie sticker on the cover. Or actually print the sticker onto an otherwise normal cover. Ick.

    My TTT

    1. #3. I meant #3. Not that # 2 isn't awesome, but I was referring to #3, lol

  7. This is a great list. An endless supply of time would be awesome. My TBR pile is huge and I could use more time to read all the books!! Here is my top ten list:

  8. This is such a fabulous list!! I want that list of all the books I have ever read too- it would be VERY handy, and such a nice bit of nostalgia! And my goodness, #8 would be absolutely fabulous! I hate that, because no matter how hard you try, the actor's face is ALWAYS in the back of your head- even if you have read the book BEFORE the actor was even cast, it doesn't matter!
