I was never big into reading high/epic fantasy books, but a friend lent me the two books available in this series. I absolutely love what I've read so far and was wondering what are some other book series or standalone books that are similar to this series and worth checking out.

There's a lot going on in Kingkiller, so... similar in what way?

To me, Lev Grossman's The Magicians had a similar feel to Kingkiller. Each story is fairly modular. Each involves, but is not entirely consumed by, a university setting. Each ultimately cares more about the protagonist than anything else in the story. But, The Magicians is closer to urban fantasy than epic fantasy.
FOR THE LUNDRAY!

I think Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy has a similar feel and pacing. I'm not a huge fan of either though.
