Halo: Legacy of Onyx, by Matt Forbeck - my 20th novel in Halo's expanded universe. Also Ive taken a break from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and read two short pieces out of an 80s era sci fi anthology called Burning Chrome, by William Gibson.

Peter Jackson's adaptation is my number two favorite film of all time, and I much prefer the films to the books. However, other stuff Tolkien did is well worth noting.
If you want a Tolkien book that takes forever to get through, try The Silmarillion.

I have a book series that might interest you. if you don't mind having enough reading material to last you a decade. The Shannara series books by Terry Brooks are really good if you like something similar to LOTR, but written in a more modern style. TB has written at least 20 books that are all part of the Shannara timeline, but I would suggest start with The Sword of Shannara, then read all of the books that follow chronologically. Oh, and stay far away from the live action tv adaptation called The Shannara Chronicles, that was released a couple of years ago. They butchered the storyline.

I am currently reading The Scions of Shannara, which is book #1 in the Heritage of Shannara series.

^ I recommend Robin Hobb's books.

Speaking of...
Reading Mad Ship by Robin Hobb. Fantastic, just like the first one. This trilogy is amazing and even better than the Farseer one.
