1. Meet J.K. Rowling
Ha. Ha ha.
2. Attend a book conference
YALLFest looks pretty darn amazing. And Rainbow Rowell attends a lot of these. I would LOVE to meet her!
3. Be an extra in a movie adaptation
I could be somebody walking in the background, or pretending to talk in a
restaurant while the real action happens. Then there's the chance
that I could meet the actors playing my favorite characters. Or maybe even meet the author. I just about died of envy when I heard about Margot Wood being an extra in the Simon movie.
4. Be followed on Twitter by one of my favorite authors
Then again, no matter how thrilled I'd be by this, a little part of me would panic every time I sent a tweet. "Oh god they're following me what did I say was that tweet spelled correctly I need to edit that WAIT I CAN'T EDIT TWEETS I'LL JUST DELETE IT AND START OVER."
5. Write a book blurb for a back cover
You know, those blurbs that only go to people like John Green and Stephen King? It would be awesome to write one of those. Especially since I'd probably write it for something I absolutely adore, so I'd get to help endorse the book and shove it into people's hands.
6. Work in a bookstore and/or library
Getting paid real money to be around books all day and recommend them to people??? This is basically a dream job.
7. Adapt a book for a movie, TV show, or Broadway musical
How. Cool. Would. This. Be.
8. Complete my TBR list so I can read books as they come out
Again . . . ha. Ha ha.
9. Stay up all night reading
This hasn't happened (yet), but I've come pretty close. I think I could do it if I had plenty of caffeine and the absolute perfect book at my disposal.
10. Read the whole Harry Potter series to my kids
Or read along to the audio. These are some of my favorite childhood memories, so I'd love to provide the same experience to my kids someday.

Bookish Bucket List
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
