Dragon Flight and Dragon Quest, by Anne McCaffrey. They came out in 1968 and 1971.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I read Screwtape Letters in high school. So tied up with LOTR I overlooked these. Made sure my kids read these before Tolkien.

The Three Musketeers, and Count of Monte Christo by Victor Hugo
20,000 League Under the Sea, Mysterious Island, Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
Little Fuzzy and The Other Human Race by H. Beam Piper. My children loved these books.
