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

Promises to Keep - Jane Green This book was a complete waste of time. I should have quit a long time ago, but I won't lie - I did want to know how it ended. I grew very tired of the anti-feminist, traditional gender roles agenda, though. Women who didn't want children ended up pregnant and being happy with babies because of a dying woman's wish. None of them was single by the end. They couldn't be happy unless their lives were on a specific (marriage and babies) track. It became very old. I thought this story was sad and unnecessary. It may have been a true story or based on one anyway, but the story seemed so fake and overdone. Of course they were sad, but who says "mustn't" anymore?? Seriously. There was no main focus, and the point of the story didn't become evident until the middle or so. Just ridiculous.
