So, I don't really read a lot of fantasy or sci-fi books. But I would like to read a little bit more in the genre. Anyone have any recommendations?

As a hint of what I have sampled. I enjoyed much of A Song of Ice and Fire. I loved all of the Narnia books when I was young. I read all of Harry Potter. I read Dune a long time ago and enjoyed it.

I agreed to read Lord of the Rings for the sake of a boyfriend in college and it made me wish for death. Hard to say how much I hated those books. (Loved The Hobbit as a kid though.) And, yes, I love mythology. I just couldn't get into them.
