Liane Moriarty's Favorite Reads of 2016
This Must Be the Place by Maggie O’FarrellI knew I would love it because I love all her books. This is a beautiful story about a marriage. I was especially struck by the acrobatic leaps back and forth through time, so (apparently) effortless and graceful and clever.
A Tangle of Gold: The Colors of Madeleine Book 3 by Jaclyn MoriartyThe enchanting final book in this extraordinary, hilarious, magical, award-winning trilogy. (Full disclosure: She is my sister, but there is no bias. Just envy.)
As Close to Us as Breathing by Elizabeth PolinerI read this because Elizabeth Strout said it was "a lovely, lovely book" and of course she was right. It’s a multigenerational family saga and it’s tragic and funny and poignant and everything you want in a novel.
