Are you looking for similar books to Game of Thrones? First and foremost, if you haven’t finished the entire series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, you should. Then you can join everyone else in the world who bellyaches about how long it’s taking for the next book in the series, The Winds of Winter, to come out. If you’re all caught up on ASOIAF, however, you’re looking for alternatives, books like Game of Thrones.

This list includes several excellent recommendations by some of the best fantasy authors of all time, and chances are, you’ll find at least one or two books you like enough to delve into another epic fantasy series. And by all means, if you’re a GOT fan and you’ve got additional books that you feel must be on this list, add them. Vote up the books you think others with similar tastes will enjoy, and of course, vote down any books on this list that you think don’t necessarily belong.
