“I just finished Margaret Atwood’s A Handmaid’s Tale, and it blew me away! What’s another book like that?”
We get questions like this every day at CPL. And while no two books are going to give you exactly the same reading experience, we know of plenty that are pretty similar to that great book you just read. For example, here are four titles that got a lot of Checkout time last year, and four others you might like just as much.
- If you liked A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, try The Children of Men by P.D. James.
- If you liked Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, try The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson
- If you liked Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, try Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
- If you liked The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas, try American Street by Ibi Zoboi
