TTT: My Wish Is Your Command, Book Genie!

If you had an all-powerful genie at your disposal, what would you ask the magical being to do?  What if your genie specialized in granting bookish wishes?  What requests would you be throwing at him/her?  It's always fun to imagine these types of scenarios, isn't it?  Well, that's exactly what the fine ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish are asking us to do this week.  I love fun Top Ten Tuesday topics like this—I can't wait to see what's on everyone's lists today!  If you want to join in the fun, click on over to The Broke and the Bookish for all the details.

Without further ado, I give you:


My Top Ten Bookish Wishes 
(If You Can Dream It, the Book Genie Can Do It!)

1.  I wish for the Book Genie to build me a big, but cozy library to house my overflowing book collection.  I'm not asking for much, really, just something simple like this:


Or this:


Heck, I'd even "settle" for this because, you know, I'm just so very accommodating like that:



2.  I wish for the Book Genie to bring my favorite authors back to life so they can write more books.  This means you, L.A. Meyer, Maeve Binchy, L.M. Montgomery ...

3.  I wish for the Book Genie to write beautiful, scintillating reviews of all the books I've read this year that are still sitting on my desk waiting for me to post about them.  I think I have 30 more to do in order to be caught up.  The Book Genie should be able to handle that, no problem!

4.  I wish for the Book Genie to shake down all those slow-to-publish (slower than I'd like, anyway) authors that I love so much.  Yes, I'm talking to you, Tana French, Maureen Johnson, Veronica Rossi, Joanne Harris, Sherri L. Smith, etc.

5.  I wish for the Book Genie to put a bug in Patrick Ness' ear about the need for another awesome YA series from him.  I'm still mourning the ending of The Chaos Walking books.

6.  Because of all this reading material the Book Genie is going to magic into the world, I'm going to need him to take care of my messy house, piles of laundry, and kid-chauffering duties so that I have more time to read.  So, I wish for that, too.  

7.  Since my big, brand-new library will probably not be completely filled with the books I already own, I wish for a bookstore gift card that never runs out of money.  Ever.

8.  I'm super impatient when it comes to waiting for books to come out, so I think I'll wish for all those I've been waiting for to appear right now.  

9.  While you're at it, Book Genie, I'd love an all-expenses paid trip to New York City for BEA 2016.  I've never been and it looks soooo amazing.  Wish granted, right?

10.  Taking a cue from Disney's Aladdin, Book Genie, I'll show you my thanks for fulfilling my bookish longings by wishing for your freedom.  You're welcome.

11.  On second thought, I wish to have all classic literature downloaded directly into my brain so that I can talk intelligently about, say, Moby Dick, without actually having to slog through it! 

How about you?  What would you wish for?  I'm eager to see what're on your Book Genie list.  Please leave me a comment and I'll gladly return the favor.

Happy TTT to you!
