We all know how hard it can be when our favorite TV shows go off the air. No matter how many seasons we got to watch, we still miss looking forward to new episodes every week. And when we discover that our favorite shows have been off the air for ten years, like we learned about The OC finale this week? The emotions start to get real. It's crazy how close characters and stories can continue to feel in our lives, even when they've been gone for a decade. Can you believe you haven't watched a new episode of Seth and Summer's adorable bickering since 2007? Yeah, neither can we.
Of course, we can always re-watch our favorite shows thanks to the magic of DVD, Netflix and Hulu. But sometimes you need a little something new, though still reminiscent, of your favorite stories and characters. And that's where books come in. There are tons of standalone novels and book series that can compare to the feels of our favorite off-the-air television shows, from comedies to dramas, mysteries to magical realism. We've chosen eleven of our most-missed and best loved shows and one perfect book with go with each. If anything, reading them will just make you want to binge watch your favorites all over again.
