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

Avalon High - Meg Cabot I didn't think this one was too bad. It had a different kind of plot to it. It was young adult, so it was a little over the top and immature at times, but that's how it goes in this genre. It wasn't a book that I was able to relate to very much, but it was different. I love Meg Cabot's adult novels, so this wasn't very exciting for me. I didn't think it was terrible though. Convenient things happened to make it all go according to plan, but again.. that's the genre. Just a little far-fetched, but that's why it's fiction. Anything can happen, right?

Not one of her best, that's for sure. I did enjoy the similarities to King Arthur's tales and the bit of a twist at the end. Cabot just has better things to offer than this one.
