Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

The Liars' Club: A Memoir

The Liars' Club - Mary Karr Hrrrm...I didn't like this one as much as I thought I would.

The one aspect I really enjoyed was the way she describes certain scents throughout her childhood and that's why I gave it three stars instead of just two. In my own writing I have trouble with scents, so to see it so well done gave me many ideas on how I can make my own writing better in this area.

However, alcholism and horrible family situations are nothing new to the memoir genre and I didn't feel as if she brought anything new to this aspect.

All in all, this memoir didn't live up to the hype, at least for me.
