Switched (Trylle Trilogy) by Amanda Hocking Review!!!

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might've been telling the truth.

With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - and it's one she's not sure if she wants to be a part of.

Rating: 4.85/5 Stars

Characters: 4.75/5 Stars

Ending: 5/5 Stars

Wendy Everly, now 17 years old, knows there's something different about her. She can make people do things, like compulsion. Or maybe she can't and she's just very persuasive. No matter though, she knows she doesn't fit in with everyone else: she has a picky diet, doesn't like wearing shoes, and has the unruliest brown hair. With the guidance of a fellow student, Finn, she learns of her true identity and what her future holds.

I want to start out by thanking Amanda Hocking for sending me a PDF! This is my new favorite series! I loved all the characters and the unpredictabilty of it. The concept was new and very interesting. I loved the growing relationship between Wendy and Finn, and that Wendy wasn't instantly in love with him the first time she saw him like some other YA novels. The style of writing, and even the cover, is very, um...non-showy? Does that make sense? I don't know but I guess you'll have to read it to see what I mean. I'm a very nit-picky person when it comes to books, ok everything, and I honestly didn't find one thing wrong with the first book in the trilogy. I'm looking forward to the next books and to reading Amanda's other series, My Blood Approves!
