Assuming that you refer to contemporary authors, I recommend Tigerlily's Orchids by Ruth Rendell (although she died in 2915, I think she can be considered contemporary). That novel is interesting because the central character is an apartment building, or a condominium building (what is called a block of flats in the UK). She was very prolific, and wrote quite a few novels. I also recommend I Found You by Lisa Jewell. Finally, I recommend The Lying Game by Ruth Ware.

If you simply mean novels in the English language, then there is a forest of recent novels you might try. One rather bizarre and interesting novel which I have read recently is Lexicon: A Novel by the Australian writer Max Barry. I have also recently read a thriller novel by Deon Meyer, Blood Safari. Despite the title, it is not terribly gory, and the writing is excellent. Apparently, he writes in Afrikaans, and his books are then translated into English.

She died almost 900 years into our future? How old was she when she passed? Or did she use a time machine to get there? Wink
