The Belgariad Series by David Eddings (5 books)
The Dragon Riders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey (Quite a few about 26 books)

Thriller-
Anything Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler and Lee Child the Jack Reacher series.

If you like your sci-fi then look at the following authors
Issac Asimov
Harry Harrison
Arthur C Clarke
Some good short and long reads

Anne McCaffrey also did other series than the dragons if you enjoy those, look for the crystal singer books and the shell people books (ship who sang & city who fought are the two that spring to mind but there are more)

Micheal Moorcock is a master of fantasy
Steven Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series are quite interesting but a bit of a heavy read
Tom Holt writes in a similar vein to Terry Pratchett
Another good read is the Barsoom chronicles by Edgar Rice Burroughs
