Categories I frequent:
2. Books (mostly LOTR)
3. Games (FFVII only)
4. Cartoons (Teen Titans only)
5. TV Shows (so far, mostly NCIS)
6. Movies (rarely)
I haven't read stuff in Comics, Misc, or Musicals/Plays.
After careful consideration, decided never to read crossovers.
Recommendations on ff.net:
Author: Nili - LOTR(Books) fanfics. Even though she's constantly MIA, her stories are worth the wait.
Author: Reaper Nanashi - Naruto(Anime) fanfics.
Story: Jail Break by sycoandcrazy.inc - Yu Yu Hakusho(Anime) fanfic. I loved reading this one. I like watching the dubbed version(one of the good dubbed versions of anime) of YYH and it was like I could actually hear the characters voices when I read the dialogue.
Some of my favorite books/authors on my bookshelf:
1. The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander. The first book series I owned, a gift from my dad, was a complete collection of The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander. I credit these books for helping me discover the world of fantasy and magic, but it was The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien that I read in middle school that made me fall completely in love with fantasy literature.
2. The Lord of the Rings Trilogyby J.R.R. Tolkien. A classic. Love, love, love.
3. The Protector of the Small Quartet by Tamora Pierce. Another childhood favorite that I find myself reading over and over through the years. Featuring a female heroine, teenage angst, swords, monsters, the fight against good and evil, and a little bit of romance.
4. The Collegium Chronicles by Mercedes Lackey.
