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

Love the One You're With - Emily Giffin This book, like her other ones, is another tribute to New York. The couple moves to Atlanta, but Ellen can't stand it there after a while. It's easy to understand, but every book is like this. Anyway, the novel has an easy flow, but sometimes I was wishing the main character would just confess to the other character what she confesses to the reader. I'm tired of all this trouble happening for no good reason! They wouldn't fight about everything if they were just honest in the first place. I know that people aren't honest, but most people want to avoid trouble too. Either way, I knew where it was headed the whole time, so the predictability wasn't a good point. But it's about the journey, right? Even that wasn't extremely spectacular. Not my favorite by Giffin, but I like her present-tense writing style anyway.
