Life || Currently Reading Lies and Other Acts of Love

April 05, 2016

Looking for a new spring read? I have the book for you- Lies and Other Acts of Love by Kristy Woodson Harvey.  This is Kristy's second novel (I also wrote about her first one, Dear Carolina, here) and as much as I liked the first one I think I like this one even better.  Kristy is emerging as a rising new voice in Southern fiction.  I especially love all the quotable wisdom she weaves throughout the story.

I am half way through and eating up every single word. Lies and Other Acts of Love is a powerful examination of the lies we tell to protect our loved ones—and the life-altering consequences of a hidden truth revealed.  You can read more about the novel here and more on Kristy here.

I hope you add it to your reading list! I can totally see this becoming a movie!  It reminds me of Steel Magnolias...remember that one? I'm really excited for Kristy and the great success she is finding as a writer. I met Kristy through the blogging world and just loved learning more about her through her books. Aside from being an author, she also has an interior design blog My Design Chic (a #mustfollow).  Get her book here.

What are you currently reading?  I need to start planning for my next read. Do tell!
