Top Ten Tuesday ǀ Book Genie, Please Grant these Wishes
signal, phone number or Pidgeon carrier that a book genie can be found at, I
should dearly like to know. There has to be some way to communicate with
whomever might be in charge of granting #bookishgoals. Right!? I mean, we book
nerds do find ourselves randomly wishing things about our favorite and
occasionally overzealous pursuit of that. The challenge is finding the proper
channel to contact that Book Genie at. Until I discover just what that is, I’ll
settle for the following list, addressing these wishes to the proper contact
and hope through the power of social media, they might see it…
is a commonality here, my list is a mish mash of topics. Let’s get started.
a certain author, a reading superpower, a library that is your absolutely
#librarygoals, a character to come to life, to meet a certain author etc. etc.)
YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT.
Need I say more? Lofty, maybe, but nonetheless… (Personal) #LibraryGoals
Technically, this isn’t a proper book genie
request since these Funko characters aren’t exclusive to book nerds, but we
sure seem to like them, right!? Anyway, I bought my first character over the weekend (I couldn’t help it) and realized
I really want to see a Felicity Smoak
Funko. Fortunately, one is on the way, but dude,
where is SHE!?
Someday I’d love to meet some of the amazing authors who have penned the stories that I fangirl, swoon, laugh, and even occasionally cry over. I never go anywhere (bookish things) so meeting them outside of social media hasn’t happened. Yet. Who have you met and gotten signed books from?
Jenny B. Jones. She does have new stuff out there, but we went so long without lovely reads by her I’m a bit selfish in screaming “more!” *wink* Also, Kiera Cass. I know this doesn’t make sense since she has lots of new stuff out and coming but I’m most interested in know how she does when it comes time to step outside America Singer’s world. This is why I’m so curious about her rerelease with Harper of The Siren come January.
To read at the speed which Barry Allen walks. That seems a reasonable aspiration. I used to read quite speedily.
That past superpower seems to have eluded me. Why I do not know.
I want to see some of my favorite books made for the small screen. Why? Because I’m not fussy. So long as the writer’s don’t do anything recklessly stupid (which they are currently do a lot of in my favorite TV fandoms, does anyone else agree!?), I love adaptations, even if they are a stretch. For example I’d like to see Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage books make it to TV. If the
right writers and producers got a hold of the material, this could be a lovely
TV series (or series of films). Or Kiera Cass’ Selection series. I know, it’s been done and failed, but I can still dream.
I adored The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and even grew to love Emma Approved (quite a lot). Since then, I’ve watched an episode here and there of some of the other web series that have popped up in addition to reading about the plot “twists” and honestly, they are not my idea of amazing. I’d love to see more web series of the same caliber as LBD and ‘Emma.’ What would you like to see adapted as a web series?
