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.

Dragged for Me
Beyond the Bright Sea was really, really not the book for me. I found myself feeling as if it were much longer than it really was. Like Wolf Hollow I just really didn't find myself able to enjoy this book very much. I did like the message. I don't know. I figure it will maybe get some Newbery buzz, maybe not. And I figured I wanted to give it a try but it was one that I could have passed on and not felt bad.
