Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
As per OB's post (http://oblue.booklikes.com/post/1592167/reading-progress-update-i-ve-read-100): Josh Malerman - "Bird Box"

Also, it strikes me that both "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy would have a place here. Orcs, uruk-hai, trolls, goblins ...

And:
Susanna Clarke: The Ladies of Grace Adieu
Neil Gaiman: Smoke and Mirrors
Murder by Death
Got 'em! I thought about LOTR while I was building this list yesterday, and then promptly forgot about adding them in the time it took me to add the other titles. Hopeless, I am. :P
