All of the people who have ripped on Stuart Woods' books need to read Sweet Valley Confidential. This is so bad. I mean it isn't the worst book I ever read, because its not a book that is trying to be awesome. It isn't pretentious. It is just garbage. But it isn't dressed up as an "important work" with a message. So it gets points for that. It also gets points for the idea of revisiting characters that a lot of people grew up with, even if I didn't.
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.
