Book versions of your favorite shows

Heroes

EPISODES LEFT: 0

NUMBER OF BOOKS: 1

WHY IT’S WORTH IT: Heroes fans who have already eaten up DC Comics’ hardcover collection based on the series can get their fix with Saving Charlie, Aury Wallington’s novel about Hiro’s time-traveling attempt to protect his season 1 love interest.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

EPISODES LEFT: 0

NUMBER OF BOOKS: 9

WHY IT’S WORTH IT: Sara Sidle fans can pretend the forensic investigator never parted ways with Grissom — she appears in all nine books. The novels, written by various authors, also deliver the same geeky and gruesome crime-scene details and tech-heavy investigations as the hit CBS series.

Monk

EPISODES LEFT: 5

NUMBER OF BOOKS: 5

WHY IT’S WORTH IT: Who wouldn’t like to imagine Monk‘s Tony Shalhoub returning to his Galaxy Quest roots? Mr. Monk in Outer Space, Lee Goldberg’s most recent novel based on the USA show, pits the eccentric PI against a sci-fi legend’s murderer.

Gossip Girl

EPISODES LEFT: 0

NUMBER OF BOOKS: 12

WHY IT’S WORTH IT: Cecily von Ziegesar’s best-sellers, which inspired the series, have all the guilty-pleasure appeal of the CW show — and delve into OMG-worthy plotlines not yet seen on TV, like Serena van der Woodsen’s booze-soaked European exploits.

Bones

EPISODES LEFT: 4

NUMBER OF BOOKS: 10

WHY IT’S WORTH IT: Though the similarities between Kathy Reichs’ novels and Fox’s Bones end with the protagonist’s name and forensic anthropology career, there’s certainly enough suspense and skeleton-related mysteries to satisfy the most devoted Dr. Temperance Brennan fans.
