I'm constantly on the lookout for good reads.

Think of my favourite stories list as a list of stories with raw talent. Think of my favourite authors list as the Hall of Fame.

I think I'll be less active on my reads now. I have my aspirations that call for total dedication.

For those of you that do wonder...yes, I came from Quizilla. I have rather embarassing works, so I won't post the link. But for you smarties, all you have to do is change the url to my username. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, ignore me.

.:.FootballRespectTheSTREETS//.:.

I am finally updating this damn thing bc I need to recognize the freaking awesomeness of some spectacular authors.

Stories I feel deserve recognition amongst my favourited:

The ones with a ! are the most memorable--meaning they had unique elements that made me remember them to this day.

The ones with a * are (based upon memory!) my favourite of favourites or the most outstanding
