Margaret Kingsbury grew up in a house so crammed with books she couldn’t open a closet door without a book stack tumbling, and she’s brought that same decorative energy to her adult life. Margaret has an MA in English with a concentration in writing and has worked as a bookseller and adjunct English professor. She’s currently a freelance writer and editor, and in addition to Book Riot, her pieces have appeared in School Library Journal, BuzzFeed News, The Lily, Parents, StarTrek.com, and more. She particularly loves children’s books, fantasy, science fiction, horror, graphic novels, and any books with disabled characters. You can read more about her bookish and parenting shenanigans in Book Riot’s twice-weekly The Kids Are All Right newsletter.

For many fantasy readers, including myself, The Lord of the Rings was their first foray into the genre and where a love for fantasy reading began. I remember reading my father’s gold faux leather edition of The Hobbit, building Hobbit holes with blankets and chairs, and passing around each book in the trilogy to my sisters as we finished. We read them every winter. My mom named her pet rabbit as a teenager Gandalf, my dad organized LOTR tabletop campaigns, and I pretended I was the first hobbit wizard, Viola the Purple. No, I’m not kidding. 🙂

Because so many love the series, it’s a great way to find a new fantasy book to read. From mermaids to djinn to epic battles between good and evil, I have the perfect fantasy reading suggestion based on your Lord of the Rings preferences. All you need to do is take this Lord of the Rings quiz!
