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

I really needed a quick, cute read like this one. This book is thoroughly enjoyable, and it left me craving more at the end! There just wasn't enough once the final pages came around. But that's really my only complaint. This is a beautiful, third person/present tense novel :o)

I was afraid that the scenes would linger too long, that the plane ride would never end, but everything flowed quite nicely. It reads like a movie, with each scene and flashback coming very naturally. All I wanted was for Hadley and Oliver to acknowledge the chemistry, but it sadly didn't happen on the plane. The rest of their story (and individual stories) progresses in just the right way. Hadley's broken family comes into the spotlight with her father's wedding happening, and Oliver has family drama of his own. No matter what, I'd gladly read more of their story, as it just ended way too abruptly.
