I need to pick out two novels by the same author to write a comparison essay about. Does anyone have any recommendations?

What have you read and what are you interested in? Have you read "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood and the newly published sequel, "Testaments"? Maybe you like thrillers, and John Grisham is an author your have read.
Does it need to be the same genre as well as the same author? Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is different than "The Happy Prince". Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World" is a different genre than "The Hound of the Baskervilles"
What do you need to compare? Writing style? Growth of the main character through a series? The first and a subsequent Harry Potter or Twilight book might work.
Ask your teacher to clarify the parameters of the essay and what you are uncertain about. That's better than guessing or asking here and getting it wrong.

Ideally they would be books that you've already read. Wouldn't that be easier and more efficient?

Stephen King. Seriously, compare something early, like Carrie, to something more recent like Gerald's Game.

Wouldn't it be more sensible for you to think of the authors you have *read* and choose two books from their work to write your essay about?
