I recently read a few books that made me think hmm fans of (insert pop culture movie/TV show) may also like this book. Since I couldn’t go back to insert one into the Horror Book Recs based on horror films post I decided it was time for book recs based on pop culture movies & TV shows.

Opinionate away in the comments, recommend, and toss out movies/shows you’d love a book rec for. I for one am still on the hunt for Empire Records–it’s my white whale! (But until I find it there’s book recs for the Empire Records characters.) And now I’m off to read the two book recs for Amélie that I found in movie-to-book recommendation engine since it’s one of my all time favorite movies.
