Top Ten Tuesday is held at The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, book bloggers are given a theme to roll with and compile a list accordingly. Today, we all get to be super imaginative and create a limitless wish list. What if us book lovers could get whatever we want...What if a certain Book Genie gave us ten wishes?
Top Ten Wishes I'd Ask the Book Genie to Grant Me
Annette Curtis Klause releases a new novel.
I LOVE Annette Curtis Klause. This lady has written paranormal YA classics like Blood and Chocolate and The Silver Kiss. Three of her four books were published in the 90s, and the last one (Freaks: Alive on the Inside) was published in 2006. Her writing is really beautiful and her stories are different from what has become the typical paranormal YA. I NEEDZ MOAR.
The new Sailor Moon art book gets released.
A couple of years ago I read this exciting news post from Kodansha Comics saying that we would be getting a new Sailor Moon artbook - including in the US. I was really excited because I think Naoko Takeuchi's art is really pretty. So... where is it?
Long lost novel by Charlotte Bronte discovered.
It's no secret that Charlotte Bronte is my spirit animal, but like Annette Curtis Klause, we only have four novels. (Unless you include the chapter of Emma she wrote - which was completed by Another Lady - her little collection of poetry, and her juvenilia.) If someone somehow discovered a long lost, unpublished manuscript you know I'm going to read it!
Meet J.K. Rowling.
Because I think all of us what to meet the Literary Queen in person. Not only has this woman shaped my childhood and helped me get into reading, but now that I'm older I look up to her both as a writer and a human being. Meeting her would be an honor.
Meet the Bronte sisters. All three of them.
Yeah, the fact that they're dead is problematic, but hopefully the Book Genie has an ethical way of making this happen. These women were brave to say what they felt they needed to say in such a sexually repressed time period, and furthermore, they're just geniuses in the storytelling department. I'd love to have dinner with them all and thank them, and I'd let them know that things got a hell of a lot better.
The Host sequel.
Because really, what has Stephenie Meyer been doing lately for the book world?
Not much. At least nothing that she's revealed. (Since drafting this post she has released a new book called Life and Death for Twilight's anniversary.) And honestly I'd be perfectly happy if The Host was a standalone - I really don't think it needs a sequel. But, Meyer told us it would be a trilogy, and now I'm so curious, especially since I regard The Host as one of my favorite books of all time.
A cover of Shades of Earth that matches Across the Universe and A Million Suns.
The fuck was this logic anyway?
The ability to read faster.
Because that would make it a lot easier to read ALL the BOOKS!
