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.

Good, Good Stuff...
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a GREAT title. And the book was super, super, super good. It was nice and tight and creepy and heart-breaking and man. Just really, really good. Here is a spoiler though: a kitten dies. But the book is so, so good that it makes up for it. Totally opposite from My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece. I really want someone I know to read this so that I can talk about it. It is mystical and mythical and real, all that the same time.
