 This is the second book in the Trylle trilogy and is even better than the first. It goes on to introduce Wendy’s troll father, the evil ruler of a rival faction of trolls, called the Vittra. It also continues to delve the complicated relationship between Wendy and her mother, the Queen.

Switched

From Stephanie  Bunce 
Title:  Switched
Author:  Amanda Hocking
This is the first novel of a fantasy trilogy written for YA, but in my opinion, fantasy transcends all ages. LOVED this book. Similar to Twilight but instead of vampires, it is about the Trylles, a race of trolls who live on the outskirts of human society, except for their changelings, who are troll infants that are switched with human babies, so that they are raised in human society and are able to eventually bring money home to their real troll families when they are reunited. This first book is about Wendy’s introduction to the Trylles, as the Princess who will eventually rule over them.

Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed
Author:  Emily Giffin
This book was wonderful and a very easy read. I haven’t seen the movie, but now I want to! It was very insightful into two different personalities and it brought back memories of a childhood friendship I had that was very similar to the one between Rachel and Darcy. I am so, so glad that Dex chose the right woman! You can’t go wrong reading this book.
