I've been reading harry potter series over and over again. I admire JK rowling for her great imagination and creativity. Anyone has read books of similar genre? Please recommend and share some titles that you think is worth reading. =)

I search these books, too. I was read The Chronicles of Narnia, The Chronicles of SpiderWick, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Twilight and The Pirates of the Caribbean. Anyone of these books are so interesting and I like them. I want to read all of them again! If you aren't read these books, read it because the are similar like Harry Potter and I think that you will like it :)

Well there are some worthy suggestions on here. But there are some noticeable omissions. JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit is excellent, as is the follow up books, The Lord of the Rings. City of Ember is supposed to be fantastic, though I have not yet read it. The Eragon series is fantastic as well. And last but not least is Lemony Snickets "A Series of Unfortunate Events". All of these are wonderful books that fit in will with Rowling's Potter books.

- The Bartimaeus Trilogy : lot of funny twist in the plot but definitely much darker than HP. A must list for me. - Golden Compass : Philosophy mix with fantasy. Makes us question about God presence which makes me don;t like this book too much. Too atheist IMO - Reading Books of Abarat by Clive Barker right now. Exciting to read a fantasy book with many illustrations in it. So we can really2 imagine what it is like the life in Abarat.
