I would read the Shannara Chronicles or Harry Potter because they have some similarities to LOTR. I think Shannara is a great series and you can also watch it because it has two seasons of the tv series so far. I do not know if they are continuing the tv series but it was beautifully designed visually with the unique storyline. I suggest you watch the series because it is stunning and who doesn't like elves. If you do end up watching it please let me know what you thought of it.

The Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini is the closest I have ever read. I think you would enjoy it.

The Sword of Truth is a series with several books by Terry Goodkind and takes you on quite a journey. The Dark Elf Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore is also a page-turner and the first part of a much larger series, The Legend of Drizzt.

Anything by David Eddings really. I have just finished "The Belgariad" and "The Mallorean" (both sets of 5 books, one series immediately following the other). They are kind of similar to LOTR in that there is magic and different races and lots of walking lol. They have a certain quest they must complete and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. I don't describe them very well but I really do recommend them. They are very good. Great characters too. Lots to get invested in!
