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

Mercy - Jodi Picoult I was so emotionally affected with this one!! The whole cheating thing really got to me. Cam is an idiot, and I don't know how I feel about Allie. I didn't really care for the ending.. it just kind of stopped, in my opinion. I wanted more, even though this was 18 hours long!!

As for Jamie, I felt for him. No way could I do what he did for his wife. No way could I face life that way. Their relationship sounded amazing, and it's sad that life worked out that way for them. He was interesting, and there were times where I thought he wasn't being truthful, but all that gets revealed too.

Great book, Jodi! I only have a couple left to read.. but she's definitely one of my favorite and most recommended authors!!
