Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Book Wishes
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten book wishes…
1 – For there to be a book/novel series version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
There are comics and a couple of novels, but it would be cool to have original novels like there are movies for each character and novels were the Avengers meet up. Or it doesn’t have to be Marvel, just a good superhero series–Steelheart is the closest I’ve read so far.
2 – For J.K. Rowling to write more Potter books
She said she was writing an encyclopedia, which turned out to be Pottermore, but I want to read more books set in the Wizarding World–about Harry, or other characters, sequels or prequels. Or if she doesn’t want to write more Potter books, then at least another fantasy book.
3 – For Hogwarts to be a real place
This one doesn’t need an explanation.
4 – To meet Stephen King
King is my favourite writer, so it would be wicked to ask him questions about his writing process.
5 – For Jurassic Park to be a real place
A working Jurassic Park–not the one with escaped dinosaurs and screaming. But after two failed parks, this probably wouldn’t happen–even if dinosaurs could be brought back.
6 – To have a home library
Or a house that is a library–shelves of books lining every room.
7 – For Lee Child to write a stand-alone thriller or for Suzanne Collins to write more YA books
I couldn’t decide between these two. I’m a big fan of the Jack Reacher books but it would be cool to see what else Child could write. Suzanne Collins hasn’t written a YA book since Mockingjay, so it would be interesting to see what other book or series she comes up with.
8 – For Skulduggery Pleasant to be adapted into a movie
A movie has been in development for a long time, but Landy said the script was terrible and nothing seems to be moving forward. The Skulduggery books would make epic movies and it’d be cool to see how they created Skulduggery himself.
9 – To visit Middle Earth
Like #3, this one doesn’t need much explanation.
10 – To own a signed copy of a Potter book
They’re rare and expensive to buy, and Rowling doesn’t do much signing any more.
(Cheat) 11 – A book deal
I’ve wanted to be published since I understood what publishing was, and got one step closer with signing with a literary agent earlier this year. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a few steps closer soon.
