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.

I WILL recommend this
Mongrels didn't blow me away, but the reviews of it did, so I bought it right away. And I liked it, I really, really did. It just didn't WOW me, but it really could WOW a lot of people. It is story of a young man growing up in a family of werewolves. I have never read anything by Stephen Graham Jones, but I will read more! It's also the story of being an outsider and family and loss of loved ones, so it is more than a horror story. I thought it would be a horror story, so maybe I was just expecting that and it caught me off guard that I didn't find it to be scary. But it was really, really good!
