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.

It's Been a Long Time
Ally Condie. She wrote the Matched trilogy, the first of which I loved and then I had the feeling that maybe the publisher made her turn it into a trilogy, and so it was stretched a bit too much for me. But this is just a fantastic story. So real. Just very powerfully written. A story of loss and trying to live again after that loss. Summerlost is really, really well done.
