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.

A Pair of Dice

I really love this series, but I may have hit a snag.  I found Paradise Lost to be not as good as the previous Private books.  It might have been because this time around the Billings Girls and their boys are on St. Barts for Christmas break and at school.  The whole island thing really isn't my style.  Or maybe it is because Reed is truly, truly turning out to be a major whiner.  I know bad things have happened to the girl, but come on.  I am just suprised that Noelle hasn't slapped her upside the head. 
Reed finds out that the big game on the island is The Upton Game.  Every girl plays (except for Noelle who is pretty much too cool to do that kind of thing) and the object is to hook up with Upton Giles, a young British billionare.
Upton only has eyes for Reed, even though she is really whiny!  And this makes Reed the target of vengence from Poppy, Upton's former girlfriend. 
It was okay...but I really wanted the girls to get back to Easton.
