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 wanted to like this more than I did. I did enjoy it, but not as much as I hoped. I liked all the 1800s stuff, the clothes, the etiquette, the trains, etc. Daniel was likable. But this book was predictable. I called the brother situation from the very beginning. And Eleanor just didn't work for me as a strong female MC. She doesn't seem like the type to go through all the adventure in this book at the beginning. Oh well.

I'd recommend this book to people who like zombies. They're not all gory and all that, eating people all over the place and what not. But there are headless bodies, murders, and the walking dead. Hopefully more people like this more than I did. And is this a series? The end lends itself to sequel, but I don't know if I'd read it.
