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

This book just wasn't for me. I never really got into the story or actually felt for the MC, Brianna. It felt like too much nonsense going on, and I skimmed a lot of the last 150 pages or so. There was nothing that I discovered in those pages that made the book any better for me. I didn't care for Brianna's friends AT ALL, and I didn't really like the "love interest" Blake. The idea behind the story didn't suck me in, so I just wasn't really thrilled. It took me way too long to read this one because I just wasn't into it. Oh well. Not every book is for everyone!

I did like that this book is present tense, first person POV. I'd like to try another book by this author when she's written some other stuff. Hopefully other people like this book in the meantime.
