TTT: Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is a book blogging feature where every week there is a different ‘top ten’ list of books to make.
This week’s TTT post has so many kinds of possibilities, and, well, mine are all across the board here… (it gets a little crazy)
#1 – A Passenger ARC and all the awesome swag that comes with it
I love Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Mind’s trilogy and the Passenger cover is gorgeous and it sounds great and just…. Give it to me. Please. Also, the stuff that comes with the ARC is legit amazing. A notebook and a passport holder and a map and a LUGGAGE TAG?? *grabby hands* (if you haven’t seen all the stuff click here for a pic)
#2 – Bookstagram goals
I love bookstagram and I try really hard at it but I just want my pictures to be really good. I think I’m getting better though!
#3 – A full (hardcover) set of the Alcatraz Vs the Evil Librarians reprints!
A year ago I thought I would never get the fifth Alcatraz book. But then Branderson said he’d written the fifth book and released the prologue in one of his emails and then Tor bought the rights to the whole series and now they’re reprinting the whole series with awesome new covers and INTERIOR ILLUSTRATIONS! I fangirl about this like every day, but those new books are going to leave me like $100 poorer… (but I get to see my queen Bastille Dartmoor and her dork in full page illustrations that are gorgeous ahhhh *heart eyes*)
#4 – A ticket to BEA
I always watch all the tweets and everything about BEA with such envy. Like, I wanna go where all the cool people are! But it’s expensive, and I’m also technically not old enough yet. Maybe not this year but next year? *crosses fingers*
#5 – A fourth Jack Blank Adventures book
So, in another installment of Tamara is in love with obscure middle grade series: the Jack Blank Adventures books. The trilogy had a great plot arc and the ending was great but I want MOAR. There are so many possibilities for in-universe books with different characters too… (*cough* Solomon Roka space pirate pls *cough*) Well, maybe someday. Right now Matt Myklusch at least has the Seaborne series, which is also really cool. Hopefully there’ll be official publication details soon.
#6 – Wall to wall bookshelves
I just want a house, where every wall is a bookshelf. Just think about! It would be AMAZING.
#7 – A booknerd roommate
Next year, I will be going to college. And living in dorms. Which will pretty much definitely mean I’ll have a roommate… can they at least be a fellow booknerd? Please?
#8 – Getting to go one of the Illuminae book tour stops
As you know, I am obsessed with Illuminae. And the authors are coming to the US! But the nearest tour stop in in Seattle, which is still 2000 miles away. Soo… not happening. 🙁
#9 – Another Heist Society book!
I don’t know if this will ever happen, Ally Carter hasn’t said either way, but Heist Soceity is my favorite series of hers and I really just want more Kat and Hale being awesome and stealing stuff and interacting with the rest of Kat’s family… I love them.
#8 – SJ Kincaid’s new book in my hands, like, now
SJ Kincaid, author of my fav the Insignia trilogy, is writing (has written?) a new standalone sci fi book!! I want it so much! Ahhhh!
