Recently Read #26

A little late at posting this but better late than never right? This month has been very up and down in terms of reading, I've either read for hours at a time or gone for days without even picking up a book. This month I've made my way through 5 books which I'm pretty happy with and Ive also completely my good reads challenge of reading 30 books this year.

Three's A Crowd by Sophie Mckenzie
This is the second book in the All About Eve series, it continues to follow Luke and Eve but this time they're off on their very first holiday staying with Eve's Dad in his Spanish Hotel. It was an easy read but it wasn't the most riveting of story lines, Luke is a very very jealous boyfriend and i found him quite childish at times. This book is obviously aimed at a younger audience so maybe that's why i just found it a bit blah.
Rating: 2/5

See How They Lie by Sue Wallman
Hummingbird Creek is a top wellness resort; no one can see in and no one can get out - This place is all about the rules and breaking them is not a good idea. Mae has lived their her entire life, her dad is the founder and Mae feels so lucky to live such a privileged life, until she answers the phone to someone she shouldn't and discovers that maybe everything isn't all it seems. I was really intrigued by this book and getting to the bottom of what was going on. It was a little anti-climatic, i expected a bit more from the story but it was an easy read and i found myself getting sucked into the story and wanting answers.

Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking
Wendy's mother tried to kill her when she was 6 years old, convinced that she was a monster. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers that her mother might have been telling the truth when she finds herself in a world she never new existed. In terms f a fantasy style book this story is nothing groundbreaking but i actually really enjoyed this book - it was so easy to read and i flew through it.

Torn (Trylle #2) by Amanda Hocking
After discovering she was a Changeling and switched at birth, Wendy knows her life will never be the same again but she's now discovered that she has a closer connection to Vittra rivals that she could ever imagine. The second book in a series is usually the make or break for me, and often determines whether I'm going to carry on with the series. Not a lot really happens in the second book, i feel like its purpose is more to build context to the story and elaborate on characters which normally i don't always like, but i enjoyed this book just as much as the first.
Rating: 3/5

Ascend (Trylle #3) by Amanda Hocking
In the final instalment Wendy finds herself with a difficult decision to make, the only way to save her people from her deadly enemy is to sacrifice herself or face a brutal war. Third book in the series, this is definitely where the most drama happens - well i say happens it's definitely more tense and built up and i found myself glued to this book because i really wanted to find out how it ends. I was a little annoyed because the big 'event' was over so quickly, considering the build up but i still enjoyed it all the same,
