I decided to post this to see what everyone else thought would be a great fantasy read besides the most popular of choices.

My reconmendation is "Wizard's First Rule" by Terry Goodkind. this book is the begining of "the Sowrd of Truth" series and in my opinion is better then harry potter.

I'd recommend Abarat by Clive Barker. It's pretty long, but it's filled with pictures and its awesome.

David Eddings. The Belgariad and the Mallorean series are both really good.

His series on the Elenium and the Tamuli are good too.

The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, its hilarious and has got good plots.

Also the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, they are long books but have great characterisation and imagery

I'd have to go with The Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind too. The books are amazing, I grew up with Harry Potter but I now that I'm older I think The Sword of Truth Series is at the top.

Eh, I had a hard time with "Wizard's First Rule", though I have to admit that the endless descriptions of all the character's meals inspired me to pack better snacks to take to work for a while. But in general I prefer my fantasy to have a bit less S&M in it. I was put off by that element of "Wizard's First Rule" so much that it overwhelmed my appreciation of some of the things I liked, and it has kept me from reading any of the rest of the series.

Recommending a single book rather than a series is difficult, since most modern fantasy is written as part of a series. In addition, there's the distinction between high fantasy and low fantasy. I slightly favor high fantasy, so I'll recommend "Magician" by Raymond Feist (if you read paperbacks, you'll find that they've split the book into two volumes for mass market) - there's no beating that for high fantasy.

If I could recommend a second book as a top low fantasy novel, I could do no better than George R.R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones".

'Sabriel', 'Lireal' and 'Abhorsen', by Garth Nix. My friend introduced me to them a while back, and now I'm hooked.

Also, "The Redemption of Althalus" by David Eddings.

Ok, well since someone already said both of my first and second choices, which were Twilight and Wicked Lovely, I guess I'll use my third favorite which is the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz. It's about vampires and it's really good!!!

The Night Watch series by Sergei Lukyanenko is really good. I think it's four books in total (I could be wrong), but I'm not quite done the third yet. Also, if you like The Night Watch, but you don't really want to continue, each book can hold it's own. That being said, the second and third books are still related to the first. So if I were you, I would start at The Night Watch (like a normal person).

All of my favs have already been said (Twilight, Eragon and The Alchemyst), but I would definitely recommend The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks. In fact all his books in the Shannara universe are brilliant!

I second the recommendation of "Magician" by Raymond E. Feist. He IS my favorite fantasy author. My favorite series by him is the Riftwar Legacy, because it centers around my favorite character, James/Jimmy.

You mean I can't say Harry Potter? Dang. Well then 'The Blue Sword' and it's prequel 'The Hero and the Crown' by Robin McKinley.

BUT DO NOT READ TWILIGHT. I read it and felt my I.Q drop. IT WILL MELT YOUR BRAIN.

Well, if the Harry Potter series didn't exist (God forbid!), my favorite book of all time would have to be Lilith by George MacDonald. It's a dark fantasy written in the 1800s, and it is the most beautiful book I have ever read in my life. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I'd also have to say The Chronicles of Narnia, The Prydain Chronicles, The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce, The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix and The Belgariad and The Mallorean by David Eddings. But Lilith for sure. It's dark, beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming, thought-provoking, basically a perfect novel, by one of the forefathers of the literary fantasy genre. MacDonald is my favorite author.

Well, this isn't my favorite series, but I think skulduggery pleasant by Derek landy is definitely worth checking out.

Please don't think of twilight when I say this but The Host. I decided to read this book because Stephanie Meyer also wrote this book, but it is nothing like Twilight. It is fantastic book that is a lot more mature than The Host (it is a young adult book) I'm not saying I don't like twilight, I love it. But this book kept me up all night making me read more! Keep note that the beginning is a little slow, but overall it is fantastic afterwards. :D

I read this book called "Grimmpow". Apparently, it's about a young boy who found the Philosopher's Stone on some Knight's dead body, and this stone allowed him to gain knowledge magically, and to be able to see what isn't normally seen by humans. Itms set in medival times, which made it a sort of weird read for me.

"Inkheart" is really good, It's a kind of book you read at once, "Sabriel" is also great, but both of this books are a bit complex which makes them even more interesting.
Although, both stories do get weird sometimes. Just for the record.

Read the Inheritance Cycle!! It's amazing!link. The last book is fantastic... I'm looking forward to possible sequels. If not, read "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn", from Tad Williams. It's hard at first, but then you can't take your eyes off of it!!

The Wings series by Aprilynne Pike if you like faeries.
