If you love HBO shows as much as we do, then try out some of these books. 

If you like Game of Thrones, then try (after you’ve read the entire "A Song of Fire and Ice" series): 

The Iron King by Maurice Druon; The "Gentleman Bastard" series by Scott Lynch; and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Why these books? George R.R. Martin explains in his own words and provides even more suggestions on Not A Blog, his online journal.

If you like Girls, then try:

Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler - If you enjoy the spectacle of Hannah Horvath’s misadventures, you might also like Handler’s memoir of her drunken exploits before finding fame.  

The Group by Mary McCarthy - This book follows the lives of eight young women after their graduation from Vassar in the 30s. It’s like the Girls crew hopped in the DeLorean, gunned it to 88, and were transported to the Great Depression.  

I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosby - Like Girls, this collection of personal essays captures mid-20s life in New York with lots of wit. 

For more suggestions, try this post over on The Millions

If you like True Detective, then try:

The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler - A classic hard-boiled detective novel, Philip Marlowe is called to investigate a blackmail case and gets more than he bargained for. Like True Detective, this tale is filled with twists and quips. 

Galveston by Nic Pizzolatto - This suspense novel was penned by a True Detective creator and writer.

The King in Yellow by Robert Chambers - This collection of short stories (published in 1895) is frequently referenced in True Detective.

Can’t get enough of these horror shows? Put down the remote and pick up one of these books.

If you like American Horror Story: Coven, then read:

Deliverance from Evil by Frances Hill - This book takes you back to the place where it all began, Salem.

Voodoo Queen: The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau by Martha Ward - Delve into the world of the real Marie Laveau.

The Witches of Eastwick by John Updike - The story of three witches and their relationship with a mysterious man. It’s more satire than horror, but should still satisfy AHS: Coven fans. 

If you like Bates Motel then read (besides Psycho, of course): 

Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin - Like Psycho, this classic horror novel was successfully adapted for film. It has also been slated for an upcoming TV miniseries

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris - Ed Gein, a real-life serial killer, served as inspiration for Norman Bates and The Silence of the Lambs' pursued murderer, Buffalo Bill.

Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates - If you watch Bates Motel because you’re interested in what creates a serial killer, then this book is for you. Joyce Carol Oates deftly explores the topic with her psychotic protagonist. 

If you like The Walking Deadthen read (in addition to the graphic novels, obvs):

Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick - The story of a 17-year-old girl’s fight to survive after a disaster kills most people and causes others to either become zombies or gain strange powers.

The Serpent and the Rainbow by Wade Davis - Real zombies?!

Zone One by Colson Whitehead - Another take on the zombie apocalypse trope. This book follows a member of a civilian team sent to resettle Manhattan after a zombie plague.

Any titles you would add to these lists?
