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

The Girl Who Chased the Moon - Sarah Addison Allen I guess I didn't fully read the description before I started this, which sounds about right for me, because I had no idea that this book had a bit of a supernatural side when I got into it. Now, that's no problem at all, but I honestly thought that this was a normal, regular people book. Either way, I kind of enjoyed this one. It was different, not the Southern tale I was expecting, but it had those qualities as well. I liked the bit of mysterious wonder behind Emily's coming to the strange town, and I enjoyed Julia's relationships, past and present, with Sawyer. I wasn't sure I was going to fully connect, but by the end I definitely knew I enjoyed this little novel. It wasn't very long, so check it out if you're bored and want something a little bit offbeat with the familiar feel of a Southern drama.
