Top 5 Wednesday: Fictional Items You’d Give as Gifts

imgresChristmas are coming! I don’t know about you, but I still have few gifts to buy… It’s fascinating how little time for anything I have this year. Anyway, there are few fantastic items I wish were real, so I could wrap them up and make someone extremely happy.

5. Babel fish

If you love to travel all over the Earth and beyond this fish is just what you need – an instant translation to and from any language.

Top 5 Wednesday – Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre

imgresIt is so hard to pick just one book from your favorite genre. And it’s hard to choose just 5 genres too apparently, but I guess these will have to do. Maybe these aren’t the perfect choices, but I love these books and I think they might make good starters :).

I’d start with the stories that technically have tv-shows already, but they are not good enough, but maybe I’ll skip these. Well, except one that most fans agree NEVER HAPPENED! And the movie too. But they’ll make a better one (I hope), so let’s move on and hope for the best. Oh, and I’m talking about the first place here 😉

river-godAncient Egypt
series by Wilbur Smith. I’d love to see a good adventure series Indiana Jones-like and that’s exactly what Smiths series is. Starting in ancient Egypt (which I can’t resist) and moving on to modern times, discovering some ancient mysteries. I love this series! And I’d love to watch some cool recreation of ancient Egypt.
