Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me


Hellllo readers, time for another Top Ten Tuesday’s post and I can tell today’s is going to be utterly difficult. Ten Wishes you would want your genie to grant you? More BOOKISH WISHES PLEASE! Gah, there are so many things I want, it’s going to be a toughie to knock it down to ten but I’ll give it a go, you know me.

Power over the reading slump:

The first would have to be, to have the power to always know what book to read if I’m stuck in a reading slump. Honestly this would just be – perfect.

Portable Library please

I would like a portable library – kinda like a Tardis but smaller. So I could crawl into a trunk and it would actually be a full sized library that I could potentially carry with me ie on holiday or moving house, and it is never full. That would need to be a must.

Meet Amber from The Chocolate Run

This one may seem a little odd but many of you know how much I adore Amber from the book The Chocolate Run. If we could go and stuff our faces with chocolate and wine I would be a very happy lady.


Mr Boddington’s classics collection from Anthropologie

I saw these stunning covers on a lifestyle bloggers youtube video I think and was like – I NEED. Much to my luck they’re all sold out. Sorry wha! I would like them all, stacked up in my portable library!

More Super-powers

Okay, so this is a bit different but I’d love the ability to sniff out books; not in a physical way but to enter book stores and feel the books – so if there’s a sneaky Bukowski hidden away with a stunning cover, or a first edition Austen hidden behind a Jeremy Clarkson autobiography (you never know) I would love to have the ability to feel the books. If that makes sense!

Allllll the moneys

An unlimited book budget – so  all the books would be mineeeeee


A bookmark that can never be lost

Pretty self-explanatory based on everything I’ve written on my ability to keep bookmarks. Or maybe a spell that I can open to the page I was last on. Hmmmm – Accio-pageturneroverer?’


You know when you’re reading and you’re on the bus and someone is having an argument with their mum/aunt/dog and you’re like no, stop it, I would like to be able to just block them out and create a bubble around my reading lovliness.


Less bookish more blogish, but I wish a genie could just post on my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads because I am just rubbish at remembering. That would be nice.


Finally, I would like to have rowdy drunken curry with J,K Rowling, Bukowski, Shakespeare, Dorothy Koomson, Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer and Stella Newman please.

These would be so wonderful if they came true although never will *sobs* What would add to my list?

    I would add the superpower to be able to read in double quick time (so as to get through more books) and, sorry second wish here, that as I was reading all my thoughts about the book would randomly go to a word document so when I’d finished I could just open it up and organise all my meanderings into a terrific review…heaven 🙂

    • littlebookblog says:

      Yesssss, that would definitely be a great one. Luckily I’m a fast reader but I’m still not going to get through everything 😦
      OMGG that would be amazing: I often read a book and then think how on earth am I going to get all of that down! 🙂

    I’ve heard the post it notes were actually originally create to be bookmarks. That would solve this one – A bookmark that can never be lost.

    • littlebookblog says:

      Oh wow, that makes a lot of sense actually. I’ve just bought a load of post-it notes shaped liked speech bubbles in the hope of being more organised so I might have to give that a try!

    The Classics from Anthropologie are GORGEOUS! I’ve never seen them before this post. *goes out, spends all the money, cries because they’re sold out EVERYWHERE.* Nice wishes, by the way 🙂

      It’s so so so unfair they are utterly beautiful and we can’t get them.
      Might have to go and scour ebay later in the hope of a miracle 😦

      Glad you liked the wishes they were so fun to come up with!
