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.

Jordan Sonnenblick, but have heard nothing but raves about his stuff. I was pretty excited to see Are You Experienced? on netgalley.com and thankful to get an eARC of it. This was one really different and fun ride. Being too young to have experienced the 60s, this time in U.S. history has always intrigued me. I do have a friend who was at Woodstock and it was neat to talk to her about this book and find that her memories of it were pretty much online with what Sonnenblick has recreated here. But this isn't an historical fiction piece, it's a time-travel deal. Even though it is fantasy, time-travel, it reads very realistically and the characters are extremely likable. It's a pretty long book, but I read it quickly because it kept my interest throughout. I can't wait to get a copy and I know I'll be able to recommend it to many folks of all ages.
