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

Stirred (Jack Daniels Mystery, #8) - J.A. Konrath,  Blake Crouch Um WHOA. WHOA!!

This book had me going up and down. I've never read anything by Crouch, so I wasn't familiar with his character. But I love me some Jack Daniels - the ex-cop from Chicago, that is. She's fantastic, and in this one, she's pregnant as ever while trying to catch this psychopath. What a story!

This kind of drags, because when I thought it was winding down, the drama was really just starting. There's lots and LOTS of gore and killing (think the Saw movies). Luther Kite is a crazy, but he had a well-thought-out plan. Other past characters come up in this novel, and the POV changes to tell the whole story.

And dude. What a twist at the end! I literally gasped. Didn't see it coming! I love when that happens. Check this one out for sure!
