I would follow up on Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale), who is undoubtedly the best novelist on your list. Try any of the next four books that she wrote because she was definitely in a purple patch.

Cat's Eye
The Robber Bride
Alias Grace
The Blind Assassin

If you enjoyed The Book Theif, then I think you'll enjoy Two Brothers by Ben Elton.

Thursdays in the Park - Hilary Boyd
Silver Bay - Jojo Moyes (very good)
You had me at Hello - Mhairi McFarlane
The Coast Road - Barbara Delinsky (very good)

Nicholas Sparkes books. Some can be sad, so tissues to the ready.

As you enjoyed Hunger Games you could try the original survival game novel 'Battle Royale' - Koushun Takami, or The Maze Runner trilogy - James Dashner, Gone series Michael Grant.

well, you could try other books by the authors who wrote the books you liked. for example, JoJo Moyes (Me Before You) has a number of other books out, all of which have good reviews.
