with the books listed, I would second these for sure!! Some of my favorites. Also will add

Keri Arthur

Yasmine Galenorn

Kim Harrison

Kevin Hearne (a bit different style, more masculine is the best I can describe but still a fun series though not as touching and drag you in as the others)

50 shades - you either love it or hate it If you read Laurell K I think you may be able to get into this and see what I found as a beautiful story getting into deep issues

Stacia Kane- Unholy Ghosts. This is one I just recently found and really liked. Characters really drew me in.

ETA: Kelley Armstrong actually has three of my favorite series. The Otherworld just finished with book thirteen. She also has two YA trilogies that I love

Weeeellllll, there are novelisations of every or nearly every classic Doctor Who episode. It's kind of a border between fantasy and sci-fi. They're very short (under 150 pages) but there are a plethora of them. I'm pretty sad that novelisations of the new episodes don't exist. The books aren't exactly like the episodes, there are small differences and elaborations.

I think you might like Divergent by Veronica Roth

I read it after I read The Hunger Games trilogy because I was into the whole dystopian thing. But I really liked it, and I really loved the second book (Insurgent) as well. But for the record I had to get about halfway through the first book before I was really sucked in.

If you ever want to move out of lighter fantasy Steven Erikson's Malazan book of the fallen series is great.

If you want something more deep than many in your list I HIGHLY recommend anything by Brandon Sanderson wow his stuff has blown me away.

If you want something along the lines of your current list I would recommend Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. Lots of books and good pace. I gave up on The wheel of time as it never seemed to go anywhere. Which made me sad as he had written some good characters.

Then there is also the Game of Thrones series.

I agree with the Disk world series, esp if you like somewhat dry witty british humour. (I have read them all!)

Thanks everyone! I just spent about $80 on NookBooks. The first book in a ton of the series that were suggested. If I like the first, I'll read the series and then head to the next one - I am SO EXCITED! Thanks!

Elantris was very good. I preferred the Way of Kings but Elantris was VERY good too.
