Harry Potter series: bestselling series in the world I think. Very entertaining, some plot holes, illogical/unlimited magic system that serves a bit as a deus ex machina, but characterization is great and the writing is great. You've probably read it though :-P

Lev Grossman: The Magicians trilogy. Really excellent writing, reminiscent of the literary skill of Kingkiller Chronicles' Patrick Rothfuss. It describes the sense of fantasy and wonder at magic really well.

George R R Martin: A Song of Ice and Fire series: great politics and intrigue. Very draggy in books 4 and 5, but overall a really excellent read. Not yet completed, and GRRM seems to be really slow in pushing out new books. You've probably heard of the TV series or watched it, even if you haven't read it (and you've probably read it..?).

Loved George R.R. Martin's books.

You guys are definitely pointing me to some very interesting reads, this will improve my usual reading now a days of zombie novels.

Thanks for the suggestions, and please keeps them coming if you have any more.

Agree about Cixin (tho more scifiish) and Kingkiller. Lukyanenko / night watch series also good.
