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

Every Boy's Got One  - Meg Cabot I love these books! MC is clever and cute and fluffy, and I appreciate the hate-to-love relationships, even if they are transparent and clearly going to happen in the end. The journey matters, and this series is so much fun.

Again, characters from the past are updated through the new characters. Emails, journal entries, documentations, etc. are used throughout this book to get the details across. Yes, a little forced at times since no one has that good of a memory or can take those good of notes.. but I loved it anyway! MC makes it funny in her own way, and it doesn't go unnoticed. Her characters are amusing, different, and easy to relate to. Cal seemed to be hard to grasp for me, but in the end it all works out. :o)
