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

True Grit - Charles Portis,  Donna Tartt Basically, the Coen Brothers movie is exactly, EXACTLY, like the book. Even the dialogue is directly from the pages, which, while I was pleased to see, made me crazy bored because I saw the movie first, which is why I always like to read the book before I go see the movie.

Mattie Ross has no emotion. She's very dry and unfeeling. She's extremely brave, though, and seemed to have more grit than Rooster himself, really. On another note, I am such a grammar stickler, so this was hard to read with Rooster's bad English. Oy!

Anyway, it was pretty good, so if you haven't seen the new movie or you don't mind reading the book after you've seen the movie, go ahead and try this one out. Not as much a western as I thought it would be.
