Sweetblood is one of the worst books I've read in awhile. It is the second-worst this year after, Witch and Wizard. This is the second book I've read by this author. How to Steal a Car was quite good and so that's probably another thing that made this so disappointing. The first half was almost unreadable, but I didn't have another book in the house. It finally got somewhat interesting about halfway through, when I can't even remember her name, who is obsessed with vampires because she thinks she is like one because she has diabetes, meets this truly creepy older man who thinks he is a vampire, but really he is just like those gross guys on Dateline who get busted for going after young girls on the internet, but it falls completely flat.
The ending is completely unbelievable and pat. A ridiculous book if I ever read one.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
