Adventure stories! They can be fantasy, modern, sci-fi, all kinds! Give me some good world travel stories and I'm all over it! I also enjoy romance stories and even though I tend to play females I love playing gay men.

^ good books (Though the show is based off the books, not the other way around ^^;)

I'm a fan of the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire. They're dark though, DARK.

The Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson. It's really good, and the final book of the series came out this year (10 books in total, but there are some spinoff novels...everything you need to know is in the main series though).

The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, starting with Storm Front. He's a wizard detective...it's pretty awesome, I picked up the first book of the series and couldn't put it down until I finished reading it.

Or you could go with David Eddings' Elenium series, which deals more with the religious aspect of life then 'there are religions, now go kill this god' type storyline of the Belgariad.

EDIT: OCHA YOU'RE SET TO PRIVATE.

Yes! Books! I got Ocha onto Goodreads so I better link my account too: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2454320-stephanie I dunno if it's set to private or not. *shrug*

Hmm, I wasn't the biggest Wheel of Time fan so I'm not sure what to suggest after that. For fantasy series, Tanya Huff is a writer I adore: her Quarters Novels is a great series, although not quite as epic as Wheel of Time.

. . . I'unno, I've recently become a fan of 19th century literature so I'll just go ahead and point out Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I love how the two conflicting ideals and mindsets of the sisters represent the clash between the ideas of Romanticism and the Enlightenment; furthermore, I love how Jane Austen starts out almost more certain in which is better but then gets more ambiguous and ambivalent about the issue. Oh, also, gossiping and rumors and the ending that'll make you go "OH, HAPPY DAY!" are a plus.
