The Shadow Wars series was decently fun to read. Also:
Tales of the Otori series
Halo - any of them really
Isaac Asimov (he was a genius imo bcs he wrote his books in the 40s, about AI concept b4 computers existed)
For those who enjoy watching anime's: just look up Baka-Tsuki and check out the light novels (not manga's so no, they're not picture books, they're basically full or half sized novels)
Star Wars (Note- none listed here are directly from movies): Republic Commando series (5 books and amazingly written <3 Karen Traviss), any NJO series, the full FotJ series (probably my all time fave series [9 books]) and the following series of another 9 books. Regardless of being star wars or not, they're written very intensely intertwined and kept me begging for the next book to be released sooner. Classic Thrawn Trilogy as well.
