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.

SPOILERS THE DOG DOES DIE - but still good!
The Beginning of Everything wasn't ruined for me. Unlike My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece this death of a pet didn't seem cheap and sensational and over the top. Even though it happens in a very violent way here. This was a good book. It took me a little while to get into it and the ending was not the way I wanted it to be, yet probably has it needed to be.
