So I read The hobbit and loved it. (hated the movies) Watched the Lord of the rings trilogy and they're my favorite movies of all time. (Haven't read the books yet but planning on buying them.) And please no song of fire and ice/game of thrones. I just don't like them.
And I also want to know if there's any really good pick your own path type fantasy books that aren't for kids. You know what I mean? I would prefer something that feels like fellowship of the ring. A small party or group of misfits going on a quest. It doesn't have to be big epic wars as long as there's good characters. Maybe even have a little bit of romance in there? Not cheesy crappy romance either. Like those freaking teen books. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Have there be wizards, worriers, different race of creatures and monsters. So are there any other awesome fantasy books that have the spirit of the hobbit book and the lord of the rings movies? Have it be character focused and not political stuff, you know? I prefer character over plot any day of the week. Maybe stuff that have a shadow of the colossus, dragons dogma, dragons age origins, D&D, feel to it.

I've never watched Lord of the Rings so not really sure what it's about. But i do know a good fantasy style book. I think the The Young Elites by Marie Lu fits ur description. I read the first book and I fell in love with it. It was so captivating. It's a series. The first two books are out and the third one is on its way. It's about this girl who has the power to cause illusions and involves other people with special talents. It's historical fiction. I'm not sure if its what ur looking for but u should give it a try.0

Well their is Dennis L McKeirnan, all of his is actually heavily influenced by the hobbit and lord of the rings. Though to be honest most fantasy novels are. If you want something less "bright" and considerablly darker you can try The black company by Glenn cook, though its not like lord of the rings (no elves or dwarves) it does have magic though to be honest the wizards are not so much mysterious and kind as they are deranged and terrifying (in one of them in order to keep a wizard contained they hammered into his heart a magic nail then buried him sealing it with more magic then had to have a lesser god (in the form of a tree) to grow ontop of the spot to keep the wizard from waking up and well killing them would be a blessing). Its actually quite good if your a fan of dark fantasy. But if you want pure lord of the rings style then Dennis L McKiernan is probably your best bet, his Iron tower trilogy even plays some homage to lord of the rings (in particular a very similar battle with a creature not unlike the balrog).0
