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

Beautiful Lies - Jessica Warman Uhhh, what?!?! My brain has almost no clue about what it read.. seriously! That was a bit of a mind-bender. I still am not totally sure about what was the truth and what was really going on. I wish a bit more of that got explained. And I had so many theories running through my head the whole time! This book really makes you think and keeps you guessing until the end.

My only real problem with this is that, while you're guessing about what's going to happen, everything that happens is never really a clue. A+B does not equal C in the end. So don't even bother. Even though this book is over 400 pages long, I wanted more. In the end, I craved more explanation about all that WTFery and all the stuff Alice learns about Rachel along the way. This book was just crazy, but I really liked it!!
