Review: Switch by Janelle Stalder

All’s fair in love and war. 

Two thirds of the world's population has been wiped out, devastated by the worst war earth has ever seen. Still standing amongst the ruins is a mind reader who finds herself on the wrong side of the war. 

Everyone does what they must to survive. 

When the rebels bent on bringing down the New World leader start to rise up, it is her job to make sure they stay down where they belong. That is, until one rebel sneaks past her defences and into her heart. Love will blossom from the ashes, but will it be enough to save them, or will it mean the end of them both?


5 Words: Deception, anger, love, betrayal, hope.

Wow. What a book.

I bought this a while ago and it's been sitting on my kindle waiting for me to read it. What prompted me to pick it up? The blog tour for the second book in the series.

I'd say it's YA for older teens or NA, as there is quite a lot of sexual content and violence. But don't let that put you off as it all works in the book.

I loved the characters in this. There was so much depth to them. They changed and grew and made mistakes. Some pretty big mistakes. There were characters I loved and characters I loathed and characters that really spoke to me. I love the relationships between them too.

Switch is a pretty dark book. It's a chilling read. But the author writes very well and there are small injections of humour to stop it being too doom-and-gloom. 

I loved the world that Janelle Stalder created - it's all kinds of complicated craziness. There was a real sense of confusion surrounding what's good or bad, right or wrong.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I would definitely recommend it. I can't wait to get started on the next one! And it's currently on £0.64 on Amazon. How crazy is that price?
