I just started reading LN's and I really enjoy them. I know they are becoming more popular in the West in recent years and many anime are adapted from LN. The only ones I have started reading are Danmachi, I will start No Game No Life too very soon as well. What are some good LN series to read?

Mushoku Tensei - my personal favorite out of all fantasy LN series. Hopefully sometimes in the future, it might get an anime adaptation soon. Seeing Overlord getting one, has definitely got my hope up for this.

You should definitely give it a try!

Toradora is my favorite LN series, hands down. I love the anime, and even so, the novels are so much better.

If you like SAO, the novels are solid and give a lot more character and world background. That being said, they aren't fundamentally different--you are very unlikely to like them if you didn't like the anime.

Spice and Wolf is a great character drama in a very interesting setting, and the LNs go way past where the anime leaves off.

The Baka to Test series starts and ends very well, but drags a bit in the middle--mostly because the humor gets a bit old after awhile.
