10 Wishes I'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me
YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT.
The Last Book
I'm sure as a reader many of you have experienced this right along with me. That moment when you realize there is more to a series, and yet the author was only signed for the books that they released. Meaning that book that would round everything out or at least finish that wicked cliff hanger... Well it's most likely not coming.
Exibit A (the first time I experienced it):
Book #3... Well it may come one day if I wish really hard.
A Spin Off
Finishing a series can sometimes be hard. I personally often leave the last book for far longer than I should because I just don't want it to end. Then when it is done, when I finally suck it up and read that last book I know I need more. These final books really rocked but left a hole in my heart that wanted more.
I love mermaids (and mythology) but despite the fact that they have picked up popularity, there still is not enough for my liking. However, here are a few of my favs!
Something mermaid books also have in common... They have GORGEOUS covers!!!
A Different Tale
I am loving all of the new takes of old tales. What I would really love to see more of is telling of the "villains" tale. I recently read Never Never, the tale of Captain James Hook. I loved it. Things are always so different when you read them from from who the bad guy is supportively. Sometimes "bad" is all in the eye of the beholder. I want to see more from the other side.
Some authors are just completely unforgettable. However, when finishing a book by them you just automatically need more. It doesn't matter if they have written one book or multiple, these authors have me wishing they would release something new.
I know that I am NOT the only book nerd that twitches when this happens. You buy a book, you LOVE the cover, and then book two comes out and the cover is completely different! Sure you may like the new ones but the set never matches :( or at least not all in hardcover...
I also Wish....
Books that fit just right. I have this issue when putting books away that I want everything to be just so. Well, when books come in so many different sizes this makes my life difficult. I would like a standard hard cover size please.
More author events closer to me. I'm not picky at all, I will drive the two hours to Toronto to go to these large events. I am talking these events that have almost every author I could want to meet at them. Indie events, largely published authors, all of them! I get envious when I read about all of these awesome events that are way too far away for me to ever get to.
The ability to spend time in my favorite worlds. Who doesn't want to jump into a book at times and actually experience the world, become friends with the character you have or just have the chance to be a part of something amazing.
An unlimited book budget. This is most likely against the rules (kind of like wishing for more wishes), but so many books that I need and yet money is an obstacle. So maybe more realistically I wish that the new books I NEED would just poof themselves into my house.
If you had a book Genie what would you wish for?
