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

I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't hooked at first because I read 30 pages and didn't think I'd like this much. The whole astral projection sounded weird, zooming off to different places while leaving her body behind. But I've seen so many good reviews and tweets about this book that I sat down to read it and ended up finishing it in a matter of hours. I never really wanted to put it down because I certainly wanted to know how it would all work out. This is a pretty good book!

It's unlike a lot of the stuff I've read recently. I've read about vampires, werewolves, reapers, ghosts, necromancers, witches, etc. But someone who can leave her body like that is different. Especially when she gets shut out when someone else takes over! WTF, right?! Yeah. The description of this book tells that part of the story, and it's all so addictively frustrating that you can't put the book down!

And all the tension between Anna and Rei was perfectly done while slightly predictable. So you basically know what will end up happening in this book, but it's the journey that matters for this one. I mentioned that in my review for Such a Rush, but that one didn't work like Auracle does. I'd recommend this one for sure.
