I will continue to add and update here as necessary. Obviously, I’ve got a long way to go! 🙂

*Please don’t be hurt if I don’t add your suggestion to the list. If I’ve already read it, or if I’ve already read something by that author and hated it, then I probably won’t add it. (FYI, I truly abhor Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult.)

**Obviously, not the actual subtitle. 🙂 Ok, screw the subtitles unless they’re actually necessary from here on out.
