Nice light novels list, i have only really gotten more into LNs in the last year. The ones I am currently reading aswell is That time i got reincarnated as a slime (up to volume 7. waiting on volume 8), no game no life (volume 7), sword art online (volume 17), goblin slayer (own up to volume 7 but only read 1 and 2) and on volume 10 of konosuba. Saga of Tanya of the Evil and Re:Zero is on my list, as i really liked the anime. Rising of the shield hero would another great one to add as the anime covers from 1 - 6.

Been to long since I've been back here.

I've read some of the above, but not most of them.

I started Slayers, I've read most of My next life as a Villainess.

I'm currently reading I Refuse to Be Your Enemy! Volume 2 among others

I've been reading quite a variety of LNs as of late.

I Refuse to Be Your Enemy! is an Isekai at least the main character thinks she is. She has dreams and memories of a past life in Japan. Initially she just thought they were dreams. The author definitely stated it's an Isekai though.

I like the approach. This story somewhat of a mix genre but it's Shoujo. It has handsome men who are gentlemen all over in it. The main character is a girl.

A difference though is the main character is a sorcerer or becomes ones, which it hints at the first volume. By the end of it she does become one, bit of a spoiler but I think that's obvious.

The men play heroic roles too of course as warriors mainly.

Now how it isn't a normal Shoujo it's story about war and battles. There aren't many battles of course nor are they the focus. The story evolves more around the girl and her emotions and feeling toward the men. But yes a war is taking place and since the war is what is driving the plot it has a profound influence on events and how they effect her. Anyways I find the story to be interesting and looking forward to reading more of it.

Yep, I also started Slayers with nostalgia from having watched the anime. near to catch with what has been published weekly by J-novel.
I also started a shojo or similiar kind of. "I'll never put a feet back on this House" The plot is kind of 18th Century with Magic. where the people at age of twelve awake some "special skills" and the main Character can create any kind of seed. ... I wonder where the plot will drive to.

Also reach reach all j-novel published of " A wild last Boss appeared". This is a Video game based Isekai. with an EXTREMELY OVERPOWER main character ... (quite a trope for this kind of LN's) ... at first the plot catch my interest ...
The MC, know as "The great conqueror" get defeated ... and 200 year after those events ... Typical Otaku awakes as his PC ( Player Character) in the the MMRPG he was playing... summoned as a "Hero" to defeat the Devil King ...

... Also started "Arifureta, from common place..." 
so I didn't feel to follow the list order I has had published in my previous post. hehe

I see, I haven't started Arifureta. Not sure if I will, though I might, the anime was a little interesting.

I'm on volume 3 of A Wild Last Boss appeared. Some interesting sub plots have developed. I'm still unsure overall if I want to continue it though.

I like the Alchemist who Survived quite a lot until the 3rd volume. Now I'm losing interest. I'll try to read it though at least, after all I already bought the LN.

Can someone recommend me a light novel? I'm into science fiction, horror and isekai/fantasy.

Why not try Yojo Senki?

The anime covers some of it

Saga of Tanya the Evil

It’s Fantasy, SciFi and Isekai

So is Log Horizon so it’d be good one too.

The Sorcerer's Receptionist is good. It starts very fast paced. Like 6 years in 2 hours of reading. But it's better written than most LNs.
That graduation ball was interesting.

Jnovel club doesn't have the first full volume so I bought it for Kindle.

I’ve considered picking this one up but haven’t yet.

I just recently read ‘The Combat Baker and Automation Waitress’ volume 1. It was more interesting then I thought it’d be. That said I’m not sure if I’ll pick up volume 2 yet. It isn’t that volume 1 was bad. In fact I had hard time not wanting to read more. It’s just I like how the first volume concluded. I don’t think I want there to me more.
