Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Really Wish Existed

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme involves talking about bookish wish lists– things we want to see more of in books, from tropes and characters to settings and themes. The more I thought about this kind of list, the more I honed in on a different idea that’s been on my mind a lot recently.Β Back in December I made a TTT list ofΒ the Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me; however, the list contained only made-up titles of books that I really wished existed in real life. In the same vain, today I’ll be sharing the Top Ten Books I Really Wish ExistedΒ because I could desperately use some great advice at this point.

What books do you really wish existed? What do you think of the titles I’ve included on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. LOVE THIS, especially The Worrier’s Guide to Going Abroad! I could also use a guide on long-distance friendships, because I am terrible at maintaining friendships.


  2. At school today I joked that my memoir will be called Now Where Did I Put That Piece of Paper? so I fully appreciate your approach here. I’d also like something along the lines of Pointless Work Emails and How to Politely Ignore Them. Actually I could write that one.

  3. YES! I would add “How to Stay Home with Your Kids and Not Lose Your Mind” and “An Introvert’s Guide to Making Friends.” Also, “Nutritious Alternatives to Mac-and-Cheese” would be very helpful.

    Love this creative take on the topic!

  4. Omg I love this. Hysterical! Looking graceful while working out… I think we can all relate! But hey, I could write a book on hair braiding! When I was in college, half the girls on my dorm floor were going to a formal for the swim team, and I ended up braiding hair for like… ten girls! Too funny. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Ahhh please do write that book about hair braiding and pass it along! I’m the absolute worst at braiding hair, especially my own because I can’t see what I’m doing. πŸ™‚

  5. These are all so great and funny! I would like to read: ‘How to turn off your inner sarcasm’, a book about a person who doesn’t get into the Ivy League (all these YA characters do and WHY. Like, do any of them go to normal universities), any book about someone who isn’t super talented at one thing (Like sport or music or killing people) but instead is okayish at several things (like holding excellent conversations, being diplomatic, and remembering people’s birthdays). I also need ‘Top 50 things you don’t need to panic about’, ‘How to ignore your younger siblings fighting’ and ‘it’s really, really gonna be okay’. Thanks for this!

    1. OMG I would definitely read all of the books that you came up with!! Especially the one about someone being okayish at several things instead of really talented at just one thing as well as “it’s really, really gonna be okay”. Someone needs to write them all ASAP! πŸ™‚


  6. Hi, Holly!

    I just started following your blog and love it so far! This list was so fun. πŸ™‚ It made me laugh – particularly “How To Look Graceful While Working Out”! Boy do I need that book… but the cheesecake one and the one about highschool classmates and how to make time go slower and living on your own were pretty on point too. It would seem we struggle with many of the same things… πŸ˜‰
