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

Crazy Love (Looking for Love, #2) - Nicola Marsh See full review here!

Sierra Kent loves her job at the Love Byte dating agency. Marc Fairley works too hard at A-Corp, hoping to be the biggest, best companies. Sierra set Marc's mother up with her uncle in a small town. Marc doesn't like this. At all. And then the real stuff begins.

Nicola Marsh seriously knows how to write a romantic comedy! While there was no crying, there was some laughter, frustration, and nervousness during the reading of this one. My emotions were right with the characters, and I just wanted them to figure it all out! There were many levels or side-stories in this one, so it was easy to fall in love with the characters and really get into their stories. There aren't too many surprises, but I enjoyed the read the whole time.

Like I mentioned, there are many other stories. All the different characters are just that - different! They all have their secrets, back stories, personalities, and intricacies. From Olivia to Flo, Hank to William.. they're all great! Flo might have been one of my favorites.. haha. Belle was pretty great too. I was hoping things would happen for her in the end. Either way, I definitely enjoyed reading this one.

There were quite a few editing issues that I hope to see resolved. This one is self-published by the author instead of going through some of the traditional publishers she's worked with. The cover is super fun and, like with all Marsh novels, this one reads just like a movie. Definitely check it out!
