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

Forbidden Mind - Kimberly Kinrade This didn't need to take me that long to read. It's really a fast, action-packed read. It had to do with switching from a Nook to a Kindle, so it had nothing to do with the book at all. I did enjoy reading this one. The series is called Rent-A-Kid, so yeah.. that intrigued me. The story behind it is that there are a bunch of kids with para-powers, and clients rent them to use their powers for whatever their needs are. Sam needs to use her mind reading powers to look into a bad guy at the beginning. It's supposed to be her last job, but complications arise. This is the beginning of her story.

This is fairly short, so you're not overwhelmed or reading tedious details. It gets to the point. Also, there are some touchy themes in this. I can't say anything without spoiling, but this isn't for super young readers. Nothing dirty happens, but there are some adult themes. The end didn't jive with me. It tries to end happily with doom hanging over their heads. Sam and Drake still have a long way to go!
