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

Iced - Karen Marie Moning Okay.. I really did like this book, but I have a bunch of problems with it. I can't really say much in this review because they're pretty spoilery. So I'll just say that the book has a lot going on, and Dani is fecking awesome, dude. :o)

Basically, Dani gets herself into trouble a whole bunch of times with her attitude and independence. She's spunky and hilarious. She's a great MC, even if she's only 14. She's very mature for her age, and she's been through it all. I love her mouth and the way she talks. It cracks me up! Dancer is fantastic, and Christian creeped the hell out of me. I really hope Riodan is a good guy.

About the audio: Natalie and Phil always do a great job with these books. Phil Gigante's voice is smooth as silk, and Natalie gets Dani totally right. This is a very enjoyable audio book to listen to! :o)
