Hi everyone! Fall has sure been fun and busy this year. I’m sorry I have been somewhat scattered and hard to get a hold of in the blogging world. Sometimes, life just speeds forward and I don’t think about much besides pumpkin cookies, football games, and being with family 🙂
Today I’m back with another great top 10 list as a part of Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is 10 wishes you would ask to a book genie. I love this topic! I broke mine down into a few sub topics: authors I wish I could meet, books I wish I could live inside or visit, and wishes about books in general. Enjoy!
Authors I wish I could meet:
JK Rowling // I just love Harry Potter and would love to hear about the process of writing it. Did she know the ending would be so fantastic? I have been to the Elephant Cafe in Scotland which is awesome.
Jane Austen // Okay, I realize this cannot actually happen. But I would love to have met the woman behind the classic novels.
William Wordsworth // This is my nerdy English self wishing for a meeting with this author. I wrote my master’s thesis on Wordsworth and would just love to hear more from the Lake District bard and how nature shaped his career.
Books I wish I could live inside or visit:
Hogwarts in Harry Potter // This series has to top the list. I would love to wander the halls, take classes, visit Hogsmeade, play quidditch, drink butter bear, and apparate!
Avonlea in Anne of Green Gables // I am rereading Anne of Green Gables now and it has reignited my desire to visit the beautiful Canadian countryside when this novel takes place. One day I hope to visit in the fall.
The Night Circus // I reviewed this fantastic novel here. You have to read the novel to truly appreciate the mystery, intrigue, beauty, and magic of the Night Circus. How I would love to experience it for myself!
The Shire and Rivendell in The Lord of the Rings // No one creates worlds quite like Tolkien (except perhaps Lewis. I would also move to visit Narnia!). The hobbits and the elves live in beautiful and classic settings. What a magical place to visit.
Wishes about books:
Have a library with a bay window in my home // A room with bookshelves on every wall, a big comfy armchair, and a beautiful bay window with fluffy pillows.
Own a bookstore // I would love to own a little hole-in-the-wall bookstore. Oh, the You’ve Got Mail possibilities 🙂
Receive one free book a week for the rest of my life // Let’s face it, I want to buy more books than I should. How about a free book every week for ever. That would be incredible!
What wishes are you asking the book genie for?
