Book Review: Switched by Amanda Hocking
First sentence: "A pool of drool unceremoniously spilled out across my desk, and I had opened my eyes just in time to hear Mr. Meade slam a dictionary down on the table."
Synopsis: "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."
My take: Someone asked me if I had read this book and when I did a search for the title online, I found that the whole book was available to read over at Scribd. I usually try to avoid reading books online or in any other electronic format, just because I'm set in my ways and prefer the good old fashioned feel of a book in my hands. But, I started reading the book and found that I was enjoying it, so I read the whole thing yesterday in between loads of laundry. It wasn't fabulous. But it was good enough to hold my interest making me want to see what happens next. Of course, this is just book one in the Trylle trilogy. Now, I have to get the next book to see what happens. It ended in a good place, but there is still so much more to be learned. I found, with the online version, there are several typos. I wrong word in places, an omitted or extra word in others. But I'm sure the printed version has been corrected. I recommend you read the book if you like sassy heroines.
