{Review+Giveaway} Between the Blade and the Heart by @Amanda_Hocking @wednesdayBooks

Between the Blade and the Heart is the first book in a new young adult norse mythology duology by Amanda Hocking. It is called the Valkyrie duology and the second part is due out in April of this year, which is super nice because you don’t have to wait very long in between the two books. This is perfect for me because I am already itching to find out what is going to happen next. Between the Blade and the Heart was a great read. It is the kind of book that kept getting better and better. It took me about 50 pages or so to get into the story, but after that point I was totally hooked.

While Freeks was a good read, and one that I did enjoy, it didn’t make me fall head over heels in love. Freeks follows Mara who is the daughter of a prominent psychic (yes, I know she is really a necromancer, but the circus features her as a fortune teller.) Mara has grown up in the troupe of people that make up the… Read more »

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 »
