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

3.5 stars

This one was pretty good. It's a bit different. I liked the premise. It's a bit dark and gritty, and I enjoyed that too. My only real complaint was that it got a bit draggy at the end there. They're always being followed and tracked, and I got tired of hearing about when Logan knew it was safe because of the birds and stuff. I also didn't really care about the love story part of this one. Rachel is so tough and independent. I didn't really feel anything about whether or not they got together. Oh well.

Either way, I did like reading this one. It took a while, and there were a couple times where I got a few good chunks read. It's more about finding time right now than being bored with the books, so there's that. If you like some fantasy that reads a bit like a dystopia, try this one out.
