Alias Grace
is a great next-book choice, especially because it’s also being made into a tv show! It’s going to be a limited-run show on Netflix–check out the trailer here.

This book is based on a true story about Grace Marks, who was convicted of killing the man she worked for. In this retelling, Grace cannot recall the murder, and a doctor’s help is enlisted to find out what really happened.

Another book by Margaret Atwood you should check out is Oryx and Crake. Similar to The Handmaid’s Tale, this book is a dystopia, focusing on the world after scientific and ecological disasters. This book switches perspective, showing the reader the current state of the world as well as how it became that way. This is the first book of the MaddAddam trilogy, so if you like this book we can order you the other books in the series as well (they’re told from the perspective of other people in the world to give you more information about the world).

If you’re looking for something a bit different, you can try The Door, a book of Margaret Atwood’s poetry. These poems span a variety of different topics, including loss, love, and the life of the poet.
