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

Insurgent - Veronica Roth I don't get the hype about this series. I honestly don't have much to say about this book. I feel like it just keeps going and going. Tris and Tobias keep going back and forth, Tris and her gang get ahead and fall behind.. etc etc. This series just isn't my favorite but it's obviously not terrible. I do enjoy that it's first person, present tense, but that's about it. I'm not into all the war type stuff, which is why I didn't much like Mockingjay, Hunger Games #3. I can't keep track of who has died and who killed whom, who's bad and who's good. These books are also very long with no real central story. It's more that these are two books of one long story without a main focus for each one. If that makes sense..

The end, though. I guess I do want to read the next one. This is a trilogy though, right? ;o)
