The list author says: "Like so many readers, I'm a keen enthusiast of both *The Hobbit* and of *The Lord of the Rings* trilogy. There are other books out there, many of which are much less well-known, which embrace similar ambiances and atmospheres. They're not all fantasy novels but they are likely the sort of books that Tolkien himself would have read (although some have been published since LOTRs.)
So if you're a Tolkien fan like me, give these a try. I have posted detailed reviews on most of these works if you'd like more information.
