: Amanda Hocking is an indie publishing sensation whose self-published novels have sold millions of copies all over the world, and Switched is the book that started the phenomenon. Prepare to be enchanted…

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…

As a special gift to readers, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, "The Vittra Attacks," set in the magical world of the Trylle.

My Review:

So this is my first book that touched on the whole troll thing. I thought I would like this book but I decided to give it a go since I absolutely loved the cover! YES I'm on those who judges a book by its cover I'M GUILTY!! but I can't help it.

So like I told Lisa I'm not sure how I feel about this book.

I wasn't in love with it, it was an alright read for me. It was boring in the beginning. I thought the main character was a brat! the whole mother thinking she was a monster was too dramatic for my liking and her brother controlling obsession with Wendy was just so weird!

I didn't want to bash the book entirely because there were some parts I liked.

I mean how can you not like Finn?? He was the only person to get me to keep reading it .The end the book was really interesting and appealing to me. I wanted to read more so I picked up Torn the second book in this trilogy.

Without ruining my Torn review soon to come.I'll just say I'm glad I picked up Torn because it was way better than Switched and it actually made me like this series. I'm surprised usually in a series the first book is amazing and the second book always fails in comparison but this time the second book saved this series for me and I can't wait for Ascend to come out in paper back in April.
