Review- Switched by Amanda Hocking

Review- Switched by Amanda Hocking

Switched (A Trylle Novel #1) by Amanda Hocking Paperback, 304 pages Published July 12th 2010 by CreateSpace Age Group: YA Source: bought Buy this Book: Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) 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 Review: I really liked this book. When I first found out it was about trolls, I was so skeptical. But it turned out really good. I can’t say im too fond of the Queen, but that is not surprising, since she is such a cold character. I do like Wendy- she is so feisty and strong willed. I love that she does not let anyone push her around. Unfortunately, I also really like… Read more »

Cool book website- FictFact!

Cool book website- FictFact!

When I was looking at I’m Loving Books beautiful blog (which you all should check out), I saw that she mentioned she uses FictFact to follow and track her series. So I decided to see what it was all about. I am a die hard goodreads fan. I love how goodreads is set up and it is my hands down favorite book website that I have found. So I was not expecting to be that impressed by FictFact.  I am very pleased to say I was wrong! FictFact is very user friendly and it is a good source for up to date book news. I like that you can track your progress of all your series and it will tell you what the next book in the series is and whether you are current on that series or not.  You can also follow people and see which series they are reading, as well as update your TBR pile and let others know what books you are going to be reading… Read more »
