If you loved The Office: Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris.
"What looks at first glance like a sweet-tempered satire of workplace culture is revealed upon closer inspection to be a very serious novel about, well, America. It may even be, in its own modest way, a great American novel." - Los Angeles Times
If you loved Gossip Girl: The A-List by Zoey Dean.
“Beverly Hills: 90210 gets a fabulous face-lift for the Gossip Girl crowd in Zoey Dean's first sassy, sun-tanned installment of her Hollywood-centric The A-List.” – Barnes and Noble Review
If you loved Orange is the New Black: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

"The type of assured, rich first novel most writers can only dream of producing. The fantasy world has a new star." -Publishers Weekly
