                                                   Visit the Wishing Well

Using book titles or covers, visit the wishing well and make a wish to earn some Leprechaun Coins! Use at least 4 books in your wish.

Example of a wish:
With the Toss of a Coin I wish to enter the Carnival of Souls and Warm Bodies and give my Lover Eternal The Wicked Kiss so he can see through the Web of Lies and together we will save The Kingdom from being Frost Burned. Only then we can wish for the end of the Shadowfever and have our Lover Awakened.


Prizes:
- For each book read: 2 Leprechaun Coins.
- When the wish is all completed: An additional 3 Leprechaun Coins.

Once you have read your wish you may repeat the challenge for additional coins. Challenge must be completed before starting another round.

Nice wish. But I think you have to read the books in March.

I am planning on reading these ones in March :)

Are we not supposed to write out our wish first? Or do we have to read the books before we post our wish?

Ok - thanks for clarifying! I'll just leave it for now but next time I'll make sure I read the books before posting.

Reva - thanks to you too :)

1. Fahrenheit 451 ~ Finished 3/3
2. The Jungle Book ~ Finished 3/6
3. Why Not Me? ~ Finished 3/9
4. 11/22/63 ~ Finished 3/10

A week before 11/22/63 and the tragedy that day would bring, on a day that felt like it was Fahrenheit 451 and I was stuck in The Jungle Book, I stared into the well. I thought of all the wishes that had been made: all those that were broken and all those that had come true. And I couldn't help but wish for my true love's kiss, because if anyone's wishes were to become a reality... Why Not Me?

Once there, I will prove I have The Right Attitude to Rain in the hopes that they will give me a map and Notes from a Small Island. This fabled map and collection of notes is said to lead treasures of knowledge in the Temple of Secrets.

Rylie | 298 comments Wishing well, I wish for a Green Angel with a hearty disposition and powerful wings because I want to be flown to the highest point in the world. From there, I will be in a prime position to spot the Moon-Flash, if I pay close enough attention, which has been predicted to bring incredible fortune to anyone who catches a glimpse of it.
If it is too difficult to find me a green angel, you could also transport me to the legendary Paradise of the Blind, where it is said that they don't have to see the moon flash with their eyes, but they can feel it with their hearts. Because they all specialize in the Things Not Seen, and they can passively experience the moon flash instead of having to pay really really close attention to it, they live in incredible good fortune where no one gets sick, and Hunger doesn't plague them.
If I could only see the moon flash with my own eyes, or harness the powers of those living in the Paradise of the blind, then I could be the Luckiest Girl Alive and I could help myself and so many others in the world gain Everything, Everything we could possibly desire.
I know it's only a prophesy, but wishing well, I would like to quest after it anyway!

Books read: 7-7
LC: 17!

Daphne (daphnesm) | 937 comments Wish #2 - 23 Coins

I wish to go on an epic adventure with the infamous Rogue Male pirate, Lucky Jim. Here's to hoping for fair winds, smooth sailing, and no kraken attacks Beneath Still Waters. Once we dock, I'd like to treck through the jungles to The Great Zoo of China. Maybe we'll be able to ride a dragon!

After a full day of adventures, we will visit The Castle ruled, rather haphazardly if I'm being honest, by Prince of Fools. A great feast will be had - full of busty wenches and a banquet of Every Dead Thing the realm has to offer. It shall be Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal.

Unfortunately, I fear Lucky Jim is a bit too free with his hands on the wenches after a long night of feasting and drinking. We will have to flee in the dead of night, and seek Asylum in a musty barn. Hopefully the hangover and horrid sleeping arrangements will teach Lucky Jim a few lessons and he will learn The Importance of Being Earnest and lead a more respectable pirate tour guide life after our adventure.

1: Beneath Still Waters 3/7/16
2: Asylum 3/7/16
3: Lucky Jim 3/7/16
4: The Great Zoo of China 3/8/16
5: Prince of Fools 3/8/16
6: Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal 3/8/16
7: The Importance of Being Earnest 3/9/16
8: Rogue Male 3/10/16
9: Every Dead Thing 3/11/16
10: The Castle 3/11/16

Thank you! The whole thing started with your idea, for Luckiest Girl Alive. :) Then it all just flowed from there.

Samantha Harvey (missymaysreadingnook) | 795 comments Ok, let's give this a shot:
V for Vendetta (3/4/16)
The Outsiders (3/5/16)
Seduce Me at Sunrise (3/7/16)
Red Queen (3/7/16)

I wish to be one with The Outsiders, with an overflowing of love: L for the long nights walking on the beach, O for the overwhelming amount or tenderness that can't compare to the Red Queen's kindness, V for Vendetta that I wish to take on all those who broke my heart before, and E for the everlasting future outside of the norm. I wish that my outsider will Seduce Me at Sunrise, so I may treasure every morning with the love in his eyes.

The Poison Artist - 3/5
McSweeney's Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories - 3/1

Given my visual impairment, and the fact that because of it, I'll never use covers for this challenge, I honestly have no idea how covers could be used in something like this. I'm a bit curious myself...


message 35: by Sonia (last edited Mar 09, 2016 03:28AM) (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10180 comments I should have thought of a cover to use the example... Okay, so my creativity is a little low, let's see what I can manage.

I wish for a pair of glass slippers and a fabulous white dress to attend the Witch Ball. It is said that whoever gets the crown at the end of the ball, will have a Year of Wonders.

using book covers for glass slippers, white dress, crown, the wish will be like this:

I wish for a pair of The Glass Slipper Project by Dara Girard and a fabulous The One (The Selection, #3) by Kiera Cass to attend the Witch Ball. It is said that whoever gets the Project Princess (The Princess Diaries, #4.5) by Meg Cabot at the end of the ball, will have a Year of Wonders.


message 36: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10180 comments Basically is using the items on the cover to make for a word or expression.

I wish to hear The Last Lecture of the founder of the Dead Poets Society. He grew to be a wise man full of life and knowledge, withstanding The Crucible of his time, the Holocaust.
