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

Oh goodness. I laughed a lot. I cried a bit. My emotions ran high and low. I really enjoyed this novel. Hazel and Augustus are wonderful characters that I will not soon forget. They're fantastically amazing, and their journey broke my heart. Everything about this book made me think and wonder. I can't even imagine being in their shoes. They're brave and courageous. It's incredible to hear this story.

The narrator does a fabulous job with the different voices. She's entertaining and brilliant. She made this story so enjoyable even with the sad, emotional topic. Even though my heart was breaking and tears were falling, I was still laughing at the funny parts and feeling happy when Hazel and Augustus were together. They were just great.

In sum, cancer is a bitch, but this book is outstanding.
