At B & N Reads Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged ten books for readers who read and loved Moriarty's books, including:
The Emperor’s Children, by Claire Messud

This novel is almost like the aughts’ answer to [Mary] McCarthy’s [The Group]. It follows three friends who are turning thirty and how they’re making it (or not) while trying to forge lives for themselves in New York City. Messud’s writing is beautiful and cutting.
