Our 10 Favorite Books of 2016

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Turn to any page of this one-of-a-kind Gothic fiction about motherhood
and hauntings—literal and metaphorical—and you'll come upon moments of
startling originality, like this description of an abandoned house: "as
if someone ate breakfast and disappeared. The Rapture happened after
orange juice." Hunt is scary good.
