What kind of stories do you like?

Two novel series that I really enjoyed are Full Metal Panic and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Full Metal Panic does not have most of the comedy that was in the anime and manga, but other than that the anime followed the novels rather well, except for the stories that were added. If you saw the anime and enjoyed the the drama and action then you will probably like the novels.
Tokyopop published only 4 volumes (5 Japanese volumes) but they do have the content that was covered by the Full Metal Panic and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid anime series.

Haruhi is Haruhi.Smile
Sorry, but I just do not have any more time.

Read "Kafka on the Shore" or "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" Both by Haruki Murakami. It's something you'd just have to read as its hard to explain

Are you looking for light novels or just novels translated from the Japanese? That and an idea of what you like in a book would help me and others give you useful recommendations.
