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!

Liars and Saints: A Novel

Liars and Saints - Maile Meloy An easy read full of interesting characters that tends to read like a soap-opera; unbelievable yet engaging at the same time.

It's about the Santerre family and tells the story from all of the main characters perspectives throughout the generations from WWII to the present.

Secrets are revealed and members of the family are forced to examine what they believe as individuals, when tragedy strikes. Through courage and compassion their love for each other is the only thing that can bring them back together as a family.

All in all, an OK read. I really liked Maile Meloy's direct, honest, and fearless writing style and that's what made me stick with this book to the very end.

I can't wait to read her short story collection Half in Love : Stories as I hear it's even better.
