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.

Midwinterblood won the Printz Award this year and it seemed to take FOREVER for it to come out on audio! I was wanting to read this so badly. It just looked so interesting, even though I had no clue what it was about and I still don't have a big picture of it. But man...it was worth the wait. It was so, so good. I read some place that "if you like your horror more moody than gory" you will like this book. Yes, I would say, yes indeed this is moody. And horrific, and a smart, smart kind of horror. I think that you will enjoy it best if you don't know anything about it beforehand. Just read it and savor the words and get lost in it. Awesome.
