Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a different theme that can be applied to whatever genre of books you like to read. This week’s theme is awesome! If there was a book genie, what would I wish for!?
I have so many book wishes and it has been beyond fun to get to explore this!
1. More Sam Jellicoe
This is really high on my wish list! Suzanne Enoch created this amazing character and wrote quite a few books featuring this awesome character and just when things were heating up….no more books! I desparately need more Sam and Rick! Please!
2. Lillian and Marcus
One of my very favourite books is by Lisa Kleypas. I adored It Happened One Autumn and the characters of Lillian and Marcus have a special place in my heart. I would love to have another book featuring the two. I know that they have settled into martial bliss, but knowing the character of Lillian, there are a thousand adventures still to write about.
3. Judith McNaught
It has been over ten years since she published a book. There was one in the works that was never released. It would be so wonderful if that final book could be published! She is just so talented and I would use a genie wish to get one more book from her!
I have been invested in the Crossfire series since it started and it has been painful. While I like the books, I have found the wait inbetween books to be almost cruel. When the books first came out it was intended to be a trilogy. The backlash on Amazon was extreme when it was revealed that it was a five parter. Since then it has been over a year between publications. The final book has yet to get a publication date! While I like Sylvia Day’s work, I find it hard to believe that an author keeps fans waiting so long.
I get the majority of the books I read as ARC (Advanced Reader Copies) from the website Netgalley. While I get approved for most of the books I request, I still get turned down. My wish for a book genie would be to get on a pre-approved list! Then I could just click and read whatever catches my fancy! Ultimate goal!
6. Blog Goal
Since I started my blog, I have some die hard readers who comment, read and like on a regular basis. I love and appreciate the support. I also have some authors who constantly support me and send new authors my way. My book genie wish for the blog is that it will continue to grow and new readers will find my reviews and they will be helpful pairing people with great books!
7. Midnight Sun
What? You are likely saying. Back when Twilight was big, the author Stephanie Meyer wrote the original book from Edward’s perspective. Someone leaked the first few chapters on the internet and the author abandoned the project. While this is not a new concept (EL James did it with Grey), I actually found the few chapters of Midnight Sun to be so interesting and actually better from Edward’s point of view than Bella’s. While I don’t read YA Fiction very often, it would be a book I would make an exception for!
Another book genie wish I have is to read more sports contemporary romance. I love baseball, football, hockey and more. Most of the contemporary sports books I have read are great! I want to add more to my reading list this fall!
9. New series
I really like Georgia Cates, Raine Miller, and Meredith Wild. They have all finished series in the past year. I want the book Genie to grant me a wish of having them write more amazing series for me to fall in love with.
Romance genre is one of the most popular and profitable forms of literature out there. I wish that there would be more movies and tv shows based on some of the truly great books! All the money spent on stupid comedies and bad slasher pics could be spent on bringing some truly great books to life!
