I really like the cover, I know that there are multiple covers going around, but I liked this one best. Put that aside, I love Amanda hocking, she's a great writer! I know her for the blood approves series, so after that I picked the Trylle Trilogy, starting with switched. So it's about trolls, okay didn't know what to expect here, but because Hocking is a great writer I decided to give this one a shot. Well let's start with the trolls, the ugly, colorful hair, well not in this book. They're called Trylle and they're beautiful and magical. This book stands out from all the other paranormal books. You find yourself immidiately fascinited with the Trylle mythodology, how they lived, the monarchy and why the switching babies at birth. You meet Wendy, the main character, I instantly liked her. You learn that she's had a traumatic childhood and you hurt with her. She's kind an loving. I loved how you could relate with her and to read about all the struggles she's had to deal with. Ofcourse don't forget the boys. I loved how the romance was played out in this one. I loved Finn, god he's mysterious and all and there love romance is ofcourse forbidden. I highly recommend Switched!
