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 Man With The Dancing Eyes - Sophie Dahl, Annie Morris I can't decide, two or three stars. Anyway, what I didn't like about this book at ALL was that this dream dude "committed an indiscretion" that seemed unforgivable to her at the time, but apparently time makes everything go away. We never find out what it is, exactly, but by the pictures (yes, pictures..) it seems like he was thinking of some other woman. Anyway, this sends the heroine (Pierre.. seriously??) off to NYC and blah blah.

I only picked up this book because I saw it in close proximity to Manhunting in the romance section at the library. It was skinny and had pictures.. couldn't pass it up, really. I had to know what the eff this was doing there. I thought perhaps this might turn out to be some random gem of a book I'd find. Didn't pan out that way! Pictures were clever, and I'm not sure why her friend Blue always had her boobs sticking out. Weird.
