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

Size 12 and Ready to Rock - Meg Cabot I seriously love Meg Cabot. Really, I do. While this didn't feel like a typical Meg Cabot novel, I still really enjoyed this. It's a bit of a murder mystery, as that is what Heather Wells always finds herself in the middle of, but there wasn't too much mystery to it. Everything pretty much gets told to the reader, so there is no wondering 'whodunit.' It's more of how it all is going to turn out, basically. Either way, Heather is back, Cooper is sexy, and the rest of the gang is just hilarious. I had a really good time listening to this audio book!

Since it is an audio book, let's talk about the narrator. Now.. I was really looking forward to this book because I love the combo of Justine Eyre and Meg Cabot. However, this book isn't read by Justine Eyre, as the other Heather Wells books are. This book is read by Sandy Rustin. I don't think I've ever listened to a book read by her before, but I certainly will in the future. While she isn't Eyre, I absolutely adored her narrating style. Her voices were fun, even if a bit exaggerated. I loved the voice for Heather's co-worker. So even if you were hoping for a continuing performance by Eyre, I don't think you'll be disappointed by Rustin. Enjoy!
