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

Size 12 Is Not Fat - Meg Cabot This should be an okay series. I'm not hooked, but it's good. I do want to know what happens with Cooper though. Cute base I guess, the whole not being fat thing. She's an ex-popstar who really got the bad end of a deal, and she's trying to start her life over. Lots of characters, which gets a tad confusing. I liked the Mediator series better so far, but hopefully that changes. I get tired of her repeating the whole dorm/residence hall thing, and the way the chapters start - with song lyrics from her past - gets old too, because they are really crappy lyrics. But maybe that's the point - she wants to be her own artist now. Hopefully that happens for her. I'll keep listening to find out!
