Remember this song? I feel like I haven't had a WOW book in awhile. True, I did have the Virgil Flowers, but that was an audio and it just seems like so long ago....These last ones seem bad man. I don't know. On the Day I Died wasn't bad-bad. It is basically a collection of short stories, told by ghosts of kids, about the day that they died. It is set in Chicago. So I have Illinois done. But the short stories were so up or down, so good or not good. I blew through some of them so fast, that I feel a little weird about saying that I read it, but I did, but man, I really didn't savor it, you know? Great cover, cool idea, some of the stories are good, but yeah, over all, not one to read cover to cover.
Actually, I realized I skipped a chapter, so I am not going to count this as read. I gotta go back and change it on goodreads.com. Yeah, the other ones were just that "meh" that I can't make myself read this remaining short story. I tried. Blah.
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.
