I'm relatively new to reading Light Novels. I mainly read Wuxia Novels. I'm looking for any recommendations for Light Novels. They can be ones that have been adapted into an anime/manga or what ever. If you have a good Wuxia novel, suggest that too please. Thanks!

The Light Novels that I've read:

My Girlfriend is a Geek: Comedy, romance. Brilliant mockery of otaku culture. The more you know about otaku culture, the funnier it is.

Toradora: Romantic comedy. Similar to the anime, but with much more character depth and a much better ending.

Spice and Wolf: Fantasy, romance, drama: The anime hues pretty close to the books for the first couple volumes. But the books continue to flesh out an incredibly deep and interesting fantasy world, and the dialogue is top-notch.

Sword Art Online: Action, romance, fantasy/sci-fi. The anime is very similar, although they rearrange the story (the books have a lot of flash-backs and flash-forwards, where the anime tells everything chronologically). The books add a bit of depth to the characters, and explain a few inconsistencies better, but basically if you like you you'll like the other (or not).

Baka to Test: Sci-fi comedy with a bit of harem romance. Never seen the anime. The books start out very funny, especially if you like slapstick humor. The jokes get old by about the fourth volume. The series ends well, though.
