Switched by Amanda Hocking

Goodreads Summary: "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."

Review: I'll tell you the sentence that bugged me the most in this book. I don't remember it verbatim, but the gist of it was, "I hadn't really thought about him much, but now that he'd started being a jerk to me, I realized how attractive he was." Which, now that I think about it, describes the plight of quintessential Nice Guys rather accurately. Anyway, this is the Girl Who Doesn't Think She's Pretty Likes a Mean Boy story, although he stops being mean fairly soon into the book. LUCKILY, he doesn't stop brooding EVER, so the people on Team Edward still have something to drool over.

I was fairly ok with Wendy. Like, as a person. She's ok with standing up for herself; she's ok with getting into people's faces and speaking up when she thinks she should. She's frustrated that no one will tell her anything, which I think is reasonable.

The exposition, while frustrating, was well done, I think. It was frustrating in that Wendy kept getting a runaround, where she'd ask questions and people would be like, "oh, you'll find that out soon enough." But it was well done in that I didn't have to deal with three straight chapters of exposition, which, now that I think of it, is nice. It reminds me of the exposition in The Maze Runner.

Anyway, I'll let you know how the sequel goes.

  1. I was wondering how this one was. I got the free sample on my kindle, but haven't really even started. Sounds like I should spend my time elsewhere.
