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

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld I definitely wasn't so sure about this book in the beginning, but I am not going to be able to pass up the next book in the series! This one didn't capture me completely at first; it took 100 pages or so to really get me involved. It has the feel of Twilight, where a short story just cannot be told. It has nothing to do with vampires or anything of that nature, but more a futuristic feel is in the works. The descriptions make me want to visit Uglyville and not New Pretty Town. It's a good comparison to how we treat our celebrities, even though the uglies in this novel are able to see the Rusties (our human race, now completely revamped), and they think that they are hideous. My favorite is the model revelation. This is a teen novel, so it's pretty innocent and straight-forward. It's an easy read, and it's pretty entertaining, even if slightly predictable.
