Review: Switched


Switched (Trylle Trilogy, #1)
Amanda Hocking
St. Martin's Griffin
When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit. But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…

My Review:  Well , since I am the last person in the world to read this book. I can now say I have read it and I liked it a lot. I have run out and bought the other two books and I am going to read them in the next two months so I can finish the trilogy. I devoured this book. I could not put it down so now I am kicking myself for not reading it sooner. (Like the Hunger Games.... Still have to read Mocking Jay) . I just don't like reading books with all the hype surrounding them. I like to read them at my own pace and see how I like them ( OK I know stop making excuses.) I also like the book because it deals with ( OK stop reading if you have not read the book ) Trolls. With all the books being about vampires, werewolves, zombies and angles it is nice to include the others too. I must admit my idea of trolls is the one that lives under the bridge, but this opened my eyes. Refreshing and exciting that is how I describe this book and my daughter is reading it now. I can't wait to see what she thinks.
