Any good books that are similar to the topics.. Since I have read every book I have at least three times I need something new to read, any help will be much appreciated! :-)

Try Sherrilynn Kenyon, P C Cast, can't recommend them enough. I Am a big Charlainne Harris lover - even with her occasional bloopers - Sookie's dishwasher error???

Rick Riordan.....Percy Jackson series. Not quite as well written as the Harry Potter series but have the same sort of feel about them.

Alison Croggon - The Pellinor series is very good.

No vampires but plenty of magic. Very adventurous and a very good story running throughout the books. It is YA, but I didn't realise that when I read it, even though the heroine is 16.

I have loved all the books you mentioned, and here are some of the others I have enjoyed too as something to read to fill the HP void!
Ben Aaronovitch - Rivers of London, Moon Over Soho, Whispers Underground
Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games trilogy
Malorie Blackman - Noughts and Crosses trilogy
Neil Gaiman - The Graveyard Book, Stardust, Neverwhere, American Gods
Deborah Harkness - A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night
Cassandra Clare - just started Mortal Intruments - City of Bones, good so far.

Happy reading!

I loved the twilight series when i first read it but then i read Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead and twilight just doesnt hold a candle to it in my opinion.

Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, Gena Showalter's Lords Of The Underworld series, J R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I adore each and every one of these ladies books and these series will also lead you on to more. They are more of an adult theme (there is sex, nudity and swearing etc) so they are not YA books.

Try Jenny Sullivan's "Full Moon" and "Magic Apostrophe" series. They're good ~ I know, I wrote them!

Try 'Brian, His Granddad & the Cup of Ages'. Similar in style and content to Harry Potter. Full of wizards, magic and mystery.

The Name of The Wind and its follow up The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss are kinda Harry Potter mixed with epic fantasy. Both books are quite chunky tomes though and the third in the trilogy is yet to be published so if you get as hooked as I did be prepared for a long wait :)
