    1. Review for this book is below the PSA. The PSA does not have anything to do with the book but a TOS policy change that deemed not to tell their faithful users. This book started out strongly. Despite the protagonist being a brat (the throwing hissy fits kind) I was very into the story. However, when it got to the middle and she completely forgot about the family she loved because "ooooo cute boy" and the plot seemed to focus purely on her crushing on said boy they lost me. And the overuse of th [...]


    2. Sooo, after finishing Switched I realized 2 things:1. I'm officially in love with Amanda Hocking2. Trolls are hot(3. I also suspect that I am a troll due to the hair thing, but I haven't found any proof yet. I'm looking on it.)“Did you think you could treat me like shit at a dance, then sneak into my room in the middle of the night and tell me that I'm a troll with magical powers, and I'd just be like, yeah, that sounds right.” Wendy Everly, a girl whose mother tried to kill her when she was [...]


    3. A more formal (and better xD) review of this is available on my blog. Check it out!_______________________________________I hadn't had a book infuriate me this much since A Beautiful Dark.So Wendy Everly finds out she's a changeling switched at birth, and that she's actually one of the Trylle─a.k.a. trolls. She's also a princess.Every. Single. Character. In this book. Expected her to know everything about Trylle life already. Nobody even educates this girl. Sometimes Finn, the hero, tries to, [...]


    4. Please check out Electrifying Reviews for more reviews like this, plus giveaways, interviews, and more!By now, practically everyone knows Amanda Hocking’s story. Self-published wonder turned multi-millionaire, now with multiple book deals. Before all of the hoopla, I read a little book called Switched. Even before all of the fame, I loved this book. So, of course, when it was re-released, I absolutely had to read it again. And let me tell you, I loved it even more this time around!Switched is [...]



    5. Trolls! I know, right? Flashy colorful hair, so-ugly-they're-cute dolls we all had at one point? In Amanda's world, these are all misconceptions. They're called Trylle, and they're beautiful, magical and on the brink of extinction. With an entirely unique lore, Switched is able to stand out from all the other paranormal books available. I was fascinated by the Trylle mythology: How they lived, the monarchy, their custom of switching babies at birth. It was absolutely creative. Into this world co [...]


    6. First off, Switched is really gorgeous. Just look at the cover. Isn't it so beautiful? I personally chose this edition because the cover has some work of magic in it. It's like, it has an ability to suck me into its world. Beautiful!Second, the premise is really, really good. I love fae stories, and trolls are something new to me. I wanted to know more about trolls because I really find them interesting. And of course, the fact that the female character Wendy Everly is a troll and a changeling, [...]


    7. Picture this - a great life with a loving family,( with the exception of your mother trying to kill you when you were 5). and you're a total brat. all through out this book, i could picture Wendy whining and using her little gift of persuasion *sarcastic ooooh and ahhh* to get her way. It was her own fault for not having friends and being miserable because she never freaking tried. Its a two way street honey. You're not THAT beautiful. speaking of which i was so fucking tired of her constantly g [...]


    8. Review also posted on my blog.I finished this awhile ago and am quite glad I decided to do so. There are plenty of suspenseful moments in this book which is why I kept reading bu there are also things lacking. One thing that got on my nerves was the lack of character building. I mean nearly all the characters felt like cardboard cutouts with no depth or personality. I found them hard to emphasise with. And another hing is I would have liked to know a bit more about the trolls themselves and what [...]


    9. Well, this was interesting. I've read and heard some much about Amanda Hocking lately - even an article on a major Italian newspaper - that I finally decided to give it a try. I'd like to start by saying that this is my second attempt at a self published author and the first one didn't go well. The other book I read was ALMOST HUMAN ~ The First Trilogy ~ 3-in-1 Edition and the main problem with it was the editing. The book was probably 150 pages longer than necessary and there was so much intern [...]


    10. Ugghh! I like Amanda Hocking. I loved her series My Blood Approves, but this book was disappointing. Originally I tried to read this when it was first self published, and couldn't finish it. I got about halfway, put it down, thinking I have way too many better things to be reading right now than this troll book. It wasn't even like I hated it, I just got incredibly bored and got to a point where realized I didn't care about Wendy or what happens to her. So we know that recently it was republishe [...]


    11. *Sigh*So I went into this with low expectations. I had heard that the books were riddled with typos, so on and etc. But I made the argument to myself that most people do. "It's only $0.99."What I liked 1. good pacing. The books have a zip-zip pace to them, and I think that's what draws a lot of people in. 2. There is a sense of playfulness. What I didn't like. 1. Trolls treillings, whatever you call them. Just, really? I just couldn't get beyond the image in my head from a Merlin episode where a [...]

    13. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL. That's the only word that comes to my mind when I remember this book. I read it ONLY because it had a gorgeous cover. What a stupid book! How can anyone write such crap?


    14. 2 StarsOverview: “Did you think you could treat me like shit at a dance, then sneak into my room in the middle of the night and tell me that I'm a troll with magical powers, and I'd just be like, yeah, that sounds right.”So trollsOnly not those.And not those. Instead:Wendy has spent her entire life feeling as if she does not belong. Her mother attempted to kill her when she was six-years-old, claiming she was a “monster,” and since that time, Wendy has moved from place to place with her [...]


    15. My two star rating really says it best it was ok. As other reviewers point out, the story feels really rushed in the beginning. You don't get a chance to know the characters before you are thrown into the action. And for me, that is a pretty big flaw. I need to be interested in a character before I care what happens to them.In my opinion, this is yet another book jumping on the "Twilight" bandwagon. Angsty teenage girl moves to a new town, starts a new school, and is immediately attracted to the [...]


    16. 'Switched’ by Amanda Hocking caught my eye due to its high position on Kindle’s bestsellers and it’s awesome price of 99 cents. Without knowing a thing about the book other than the brief synopsis I read before I downloaded the story, and the overwhelming number of positive reviews, I figured it would be an awesome quick read.‘Switched’ is about Wendy Everly, a girl who lives with her aunt and brother in an attempt to control the chaos of her life. Her mother, Kim, tried to kill her o [...]


    17. Buddyread with Melissa(re-read for me)Melissa's review here She couldn't get into it but its all good:)-----2.5 to three starsDidn't love it as much this time around but it was a nice trip down memory lane, so to speak.Some things that didn't annoy me the first time did in this re-read and in some instances the world building had me shaking my head.Don't regret reading it again but I think I'll be giving my copies of the series away now.


    18. I read the Trylle trilogy back to back on Nook in a period of 2 days, so it is hard to rate each book individually. I downloaded Amanda Hocking's books in part due to her self publishing sucess story, and the .99 cent price for the first book. Once I read the first, I was hooked and had to keep reading. YA novels are indeed a guilty pleasure for me and this series was great. I often wondered how much better the books would be with a strong editor, but they were definitely worth reading as is. Gl [...]


    19. Switched follows Wendy Everly, a teenage girl who had always felt awkward and out of place (her mother trying to kill her when she was six doesn't help her self-esteem much), into a journey to discover her true origin. First she was approached by Finn, a 'tracker' who insisted that Wendy was not human but a supernatural being --I won't reveal what kind of supernatural being she is, because her true identity is pretty much interchangeable with vampire/fairy/werewolf/alien, etc. You only need to r [...]


    20. Originally read: 6/21/2012Reread: 2/19/2016 full review to come.Alright, I don't know if I'm just super generous with my stars or if these are really good books. I loved this book I couldn't put it down! Something new and of course cheesy romance but clean. Well you hear all the time about changeling stories but about the human that is taken not the other way around! This time it's actually about the changeling itself, which was nice and was brought back to the world that they are actually from. [...]


    21. I've been doing research on publishing for the last year. I'll have to write a separate post about the changing nature of the biz, it's relationship to other publishing businesses (like video games), and the rise of the self published ebook author. But in any case, I stumbled upon this independent and self published author who is selling very well (mostly on ) with no prior print history. I figured I'd check one out. Switched appears to be her best seller and she says on her blog that it's [...]


    22. Me trying to rate book:Scans options. Me:"OMG! I can't put 1 star!??? What is this!!"Grabs book and glares at it. Takes out red pen. Smiles evily. Screams: "Why isn't there a no star option!"Tears out hairG what a disaster! I am sooooooooooo glad I borrowed this at the library! Lately I have been really interested in the fey and this book even had a promising premisewhich soon utterly failed. Big time.If you like:1. Girls who define themselves as pretty and are self-obsessed2. Girls who can't fi [...]


    23. DNF.So, I really didn't like Switched.Here's the deal: Wendy is probably one of the most annoying protagonists I've ever read about. It's not that the story was boring, however much I read it - that wasn't it. I really didn't like the characters (plural), and if I don't, how can I read this book?Wendy is of the following: annoying, bratty, selfish, tantrum-y, conceited, and whiny. (enter tons of bad adjectives here.)Finn is of the following: trying-to-be-dark, trying-to-be-sexy, watches-protagon [...]


    24. REVIEWI read these three books back-to-back-to-back on my Kindle. The story had me so engaged, that I could not put it down. I was reading in the car, at school, on my bed, at the dinner table, and in the media room. You could call it an obsession.In this paranormal tale, Wendy learns at the age of seventeen that she is a troll. Oh, but she isn’t just ANY troll, her past is filled with mystery, deceit, and some unexpected ancestors. Amanda Hocking carefully twisted this plot with all sorts of [...]


    25. Ugh. I know this is a "young adult" book, but since when did young people not deserve good writing? I actually generally enjoy this genre, but I was extremely disappointed with this one. The plot is tired; how I long for something other than the normal-kid-finds-out-s/he's-secretly (or secretly in love with)-a-[name a mythical creature] theme. The plot was literally so predictable that I might have been able to announce a character's fate from the moment of his/her introduction--the first descri [...]


    26. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Switched by Amanda HockingBook One of the Trylle trilogyPublisher: St. Martin's GriffinPublication Date: January 3, 2012Rating: 3 starsSource: Review copy sent by the publisherSummary (from ):When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her.

    27. The first 2/3 of this book was downright horrible. Oh but Emily, why didn't you just DNF it? Because it was a gift is why, and conscience is a bitch. The writing was unbearably immature, but I could have overlooked that, I could have, if the characters just hadn't been sogh!! Amanda Hocking failed so miserably at trying to make likable MC's. Wendy runs away from her brother and auntwho she loves so muchand then she spends the rest of the book not giving a single damn about them. Not to mention t [...]


    28. AMAZING!! Finally I just finished ‘Switched’ A Trylle Novel by Amanda Hocking. It made me feel exited all the way along. It mainly talks about a girl that was different than everyone else, strange and she doesn’t quite fit in! Her mother tried to murder her as she accused her of having been switched at birth. Though she is not the ‘monster’ her mom claims she is…. Can’t tell you more hhhh :p it’s one of the books that steal you attention Couldn’t stop from reading it.


    29. Re-read: 27.03.15.Still an amazing book! Though, if I remember correctly, I think I love the second book the most Will just have to see On to the next one on my re-reading! First rate: 5 stars.Second rate: 4.5 stars.
