Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week has a pretty fun theme and it’s one that I’ve actually thought about a lot. So this will be an interesting mix of things.
1. Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando!
I’ve actually already been there but it was the same year it opened to the public and a lot has changed since then. They have separate Diagon Alley and built the Hogwarts Express, which is the only way into the park. Gringotts exists now and has a ride inside of it, not to mention all the cool stores they have added. It’s a definite must for all Potter fans.
2. Get a Harry Potter Tattoo!
Okay I promise this isn’t going to be a Harry Potter Bucket List. I really really want a Harry Potter themed tattoo and I’m going to try to make it happen this July in honor of my birthday, Harry’s birthday, and J.K.’s birthday. I’m hoping to get the page stars that are found in the US versions, but I’m still trying to decide if I want to combine it with anything else.
3. Own My Very Own Library!
This is every bookworm’s dream I think and I’m no different. With luck I’ll become rich and have one like Beast and Belle.
4. Work in a Book/Comic Store!
I almost put ‘have a bookish job’ but I already have that! (Checks that off list) Now if I could have TWO bookish jobs that would be awesome. I’ve actually had dreams of owning my own bookstore or comic book shop for a while now, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to make it happen. I hope I get the chance one day.
5. Own a First Edition of a Book I Actually Like!
So I own a first edition of The Great Gatsby and I loathe that book. Now before you exit out of this page and start plotting on how to steal it, the book is actually worthless. It’s an ex-library copy and it’s on it’s very last legs, and those thousand of dollars it was worth have flown out the window long ago. Now to get a first edition of a book I like, so that I can covet it.
6. Publish A Book!
So many of you know I’ve done NaNoWriMo twice and won both times, but what you guys don’t know is that I SUCK at editing/revising. My brain shuts off whenever I open the document and nothing gets done, so this is taking much longer than it should. I need second opinions on things but I’m too scared to let other people see it.
7. Meet One of My Favorite Authors!
I didn’t want to lie to you and put J.K. Rowling…this is NOT a Harry Potter list, so I made it a bit broader. I’d love to meet J.K. Rowling, Brandon Sanderson, Marissa Meyer, Julie Kagawa, Jodi Lamm or Rick Riordan.
8. Get a Sideshow Avengers Loki Figure
Okay so I am cheating with this one because it’s technically the Loki figure from the Avengers movie not the comic books…but the character is from a comic book and it IS my list so *sticks out tongue* I’ve wanted this for so long and never had the money, now that I have the money I can’t find it. *cries*
9. Own a Black Milk Swimsuit, Leggings, and Dress
If you haven’t heard of Black Milk, they are a clothing company that specializes in really amazing leggings. They are very expensive though and they are in Australia, so the shipping is going to kill me. They have a ton of great Harry Potter, Batman, Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings prints and I’m dying to have a closet full.
10. Own all of the Wishbone Books
Some of you know that I collect Wishbone books, which are based off of the old tv show. I have a ton but not nearly all of them and since they are out of print it’s hard to find places that may still have them.
