Your Own, Sylvia: a verse portrait of Sylvia Plath, and loving it and after having failed to get through Frankenstein itself, I thought that I would read Hideous Love: the story of the girl who wrote Frankenstein and that I would love it and that it would motivate me to try Frankenstein again. But I really couldn't get into HL. It just didn't grab me and maybe that is because Mary Shelley and her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley sound like complete jaggoffs, not just in this book (but for sure in this book) but also in the other places I have read about them.
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.
