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

Not a huge fan of this book. I thought the choice of words towards the beginning just sounded crude, and this comes from someone who says the F-word ALL the time. And throughout the book, I hardly felt for the MC. She wasn't very easy to relate to. She had a really good life (despite the cheating-ass husband) so it was hard to feel sorry for her.

I did think her investigation was interesting enough to keep listening to this book, so that was good. The narrator didn't help the case much, but it wasn't the worst I've heard.

Without giving anything away, there is a couple really touching parts, but other than that I could have stopped listening to this at almost anytime. The end didn't even make it worth it, but I enjoyed some of it. Wah.
