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

Sirenz - Charlotte Bennardo, Natalie Zaman I received this book from the authors. Here's my honest review:

This is a light, cute read. Meg and Shar are entertaining in their opposites attract friendship. And when they get into some trouble together, it gets even more amusing. In order to get out of said trouble, they have to make a deal with Hades. That's never good, right? Right. They encounter lots of craziness trying to pull off the deal they made. They have lots of rules to follow, or they suffer the consequences.

The humor in this book works. The girls are funny, and although the story behind everything is serious, the book stays light and fun. There is a good lesson in all of this as well about working together to achieve a common goal. Definitely a cute, easy read.
