We all have our favorite TV shows. The shows we cancel plans for when there’s a new episode, the shows we binge watch old seasons of on lazy Friday nights with a pint of ice cream. Unfortunately, all good things must end. If you find yourself mourning the finale of your favorite TV show or simply desperate for a fix in between seasons, check out the list below for books that you’re sure to love based on your taste in TV. While they’re no substitute for the real deal, they’re a close second.
You’re into: zombies, end-of-the-world, a little bit of gore, heroes who save the day
You’re looking for: something with a good cliff hanger and plenty of death and destruction
You should try: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion or World War Z by Max Brooks
You’re into: romance, feel-good vibes, cheesy love stories.
You’re looking for: something cliche that probably involves a handsome bachelor and lots of drama
You should try: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin or Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner.
You’re into: socially awkward guys, nerds, easy humor
You’re looking for: something to make you laugh and feel better about your own terribly awkward life
You should try: The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky or The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.

You’re looking for: something serious and grown up with a romantic side story
You should try: The Affair by Colette Freedman or Tell No Lies by Julie Compton.
You’re into: complicated relationships, hot sex, girlfriends who drink a lot of wine, medical drama
You’re looking for: either something about best friends getting involved with all the wrong (and eventually the right) men OR something about a tragic accident mixed with a love story that makes you cry
You should try: Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger or If I Stay by Gayle Forman.
You’re into: crime scenes, murder mysteries, suspense
You’re looking for: something with a plot that makes you think and keeps you on the edge of your seat
