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

Baby Proof - Emily Giffin Another sappy chick novel, but I really liked this one. She doesn't give up her values and decisions mindlessly to be with a guy. I can relate to this, and that is really what kept me interested. I needed to know if she was going to decide otherwise and just give in! And while that is her reasoning to try to recapture her past and reclaim what used to be hers, she has to go through the common heartbreaking occurrences to go to the end.

I am really liking this author, and her use of present tense keeps me so interested, like the main character herself doesn't know what is going to happen. You're in the thick of it with her. Slight foreboding, but only enough to keep you invested in the story. Can't wait to read Something Blue, even though it got ruined in this one.
