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.

You Don't Have to Say I Love You

just because I ask, you don't have to stay forever, I will understand.
Believe me. Who doesn't remember hearing Dusty Springfield's heart breaking while she sang these words?  Very powerful song.
Believe Me, the book.  Not so much.  For me anyway.  Yes, twisty, yes a bit confusing, but not enough to confuse even me, the easily confused, by the end.  So I figure, if I can figure a book out, and it's main purpose is to be tricky and twisty, it probably didn't do a great job.  Not bad.  Just okay!  Maybe it was more that I didn't care about any of the characters.  I think what bothered me most about it was that it seemed to hint at that Shades of Grey thing.  Which is so uninteresting to me at my age (I was into those kind of books when I was 12 and 13) that I was just so turned off by the Grey-ish aspect of this one.
