This is usually TiggerBear's province, but she's offline right now. So, here's a link to her genre series primer thread http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Paranormal-
In addition to the series listed in TiggerBear's list, I recommend:
Stacia Kane's groundbreaking Downside Ghosts series, (Unholy Magic (Downside Ghosts Series #2) Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts Series #1) and the third book which will be release around July 27 entitled City of Ghosts;
Johnson's exuberant supernatural series set in the roaring twenties that starts with Moonshine;
Glass' new series set in Atlanta that starts with Shadow Blade; and,
That's all I can think of right now in the female protagonist category, Note, I enjoy several other series that feature male protagonists including Mike Carey's exorcist series and several more hard core fantasy series such as Melton's that starts with Blood Vice and the Joe Pitt series by Charlie Huston.
Please look at TiggerBear's list (on page five of the link I gave you above). It contains really classic UFs.

I'd add that there's really a lot of variety out there, so it might be helpful to know which elements you loves in Hamilton's and Harrison's work. Anita Blake is vampire-centric, Merry Gentry is fae. The Hollows is very magic heavy with some heavy vamp elements. Although looking at that, maybe you just like a little of everything.
Some additional suggestions are: Suzanne McLeod, Jeanne Stein, Kat Richardson, Rachel Caine, Vicki Pettersen. And let's not forget the guys: Jim Butcher, Mark Del Franco, Anton Strout. Lots and lots of variety out there for every palette. Enjoy!

Hey JayeWells. Thanks for replying ;p Anyways, you're right. I love Hamilton's series Anita Blake because they have it all. That's why I was a little confuse as to what book I should read since most are specifically down to either a werewolf, fey or vamps. But anyways, I'm open to anything that interests me You're also on my list
