I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

Sweet Evil - Wendy Higgins I think YA has mostly run its course as far as my interests are concerned. A lot has changed in my life in the last few months, so I'm really moving on to other things besides YA. I'll still read it of course.

As for stuff about this book in particular.. I got really tired of Anna's teen angst issues. She's inexperienced, so she can't make up her mind on things. And she was getting pretty self-centered at the end there, thinking that everyone would try to jump up and rescue her. Get a grip, Anna. Goodness.

I didn't care for hearing the word 'work' anymore. I never really do, but it got super annoying in this novel. I didn't really like the idea of the book after we got past the road trip. Just.. bah.

Other people really like this, and I totally get why. I just wasn't impressed.
