A list of my stories sorted by fandom and length. Fics without a listed pairing are gen, at most with background canon pairings. Last update: October 2019. Note: Older stories have links mostly to LJ, newer are also linked to DW.

Borrowed from pipilj: The BBC estimates that most people will only read 6 books out of the 100 listed below. Reblog this and bold the titles you’ve read.

So I’ve read 23 items on the list if I’m counting right? Not counting some others (Bible, Anna Karenina, The secret garden, a few more) which I haven’t finished, skimmed through for literature lessons or can’t for the life of me remember what they were about.
And 30(ish) books/authors that I’ve never heard of. I’d love to hear how they composed the list? Is it the list of a hundred most read books/series? If so, it’s weird to see some of the titles and authors omitted, such as the GOT books, The Book Thief, Stephen King, Jonas Jonasson (I absolutely hated The 100-year-old man but it is a pretty well known novel), Paulo Coehlo (The Alchemist at least is extremely popular here), something from Remarque (maybe he’s too German/central European?), Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Astrid Lindgren. From recent works, maybe Hunger Games, (ugh) Twilight or (UGH) 50 shades? Or how about Sophie’s choice?
