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.

Great Ending to the Trilogy
The wait for this book was so long! Spell Bound is the third and, sadly, final book in the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins. It picks up right where Demonglass left off and does a nice job recapping the events of Demonglass without overdoing it. Still, you definitely want to read these books in order. Sophie Mercer is the coolest demon ever. There are many things to like about her, from her strength to her sense of humor. I also like that she really isn't into looks, is clumsy and says the wrong thing sometimes. She's, you know, normal! I mean not that it isn't normal to care about looks...I just mean that she isn't totally obsessed and she doesn't mind getting a little dirty when she is fighting werewovles, other demons or evil witches. Especially evil witches who want to take over the world. The ending is very satisfying and it was even more satisfying to read on Rachel Hawkins' FB page that she has a new series coming out that, while it won't be Sophie's story, it will take place within the Hex Hall world, which I have come to love. Hooray for this series!
