    1. Wow! There are so many things I loved about Switch, I don't even know where to start. I finished reading it last night and sat staring at my Kindle wanting more – I guess I thought maybe if I stared long enough more will show up? It didn't work, so don't waste your time trying. That ending though…Oh. My. God. I have no idea how I am supposed to wait patiently for the next book to come out.So, let's start with the characters…Charlotte/Dinah is pretty awesome. She was totally badass, but at [...]

    2. V. PARENTAL GUIDANCE ALERT:A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won't tell you says:

      4.5This one is closer to Adult dystopia than to YA dystopia. Bingo! Just what I need right now. In all honesty I don't understand why it isn't more popular, it deserves a better rating just for the strenght of the premise and the fact that it must have been the first NA dystopia out there. Not that I've found too many NA dystopias anyway. The book has a good balance between darkness and humor, darkness and entertainment. I wish it have been heavier on the romance that's why I was about to rate i [...]

    3. 4♥'s, and even a smidgen extra.I really enjoyed the ensemble cast, how worlds collided, crap hit the fan, and there seemed a (less than) 5 degrees of separation between the survivors (both in charge, and the population being pushed down 'by the man'.) I was engaged and eager to finish, especially to see the wild tangles of stories get finally woven together into one. While the mechanics and history of the 'New World' is left somewhat ambiguous, my inner rebel was wanting to start a battle agai [...]

    4. Review to be posted on K-Books later on closer to release.Please note that this review is of the Beta Version.Oh. My. God! There are seriously no words to explain my seriously obsession and love for this book. Janelle Stalder is seriously becoming my favourite author of all time. I adore her. I first came across Janelle's work when she sent me her debut fantasy novel Eden for review and I seriously fell head over heels in love with it. When she told me about her new novel which was a dystopia I [...]

    5. 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 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 to [...]

    6. When I heard that Janelle was coming out with a new NA series, I was likeWhen I first saw the cover, I was likeI couldn't wait to dive right in andI wasThe story is about a bad assfemale assasin named Weapon X!The story starts off with Charlotte's family being killed by the leader of the New World. She is the only survivor and is sooo angry with her parents for not protecting her that she accepts it when the leader announces that she will be his greatest weapon.What we find out is that Charlotte [...]

    7. The year is 2035 and two thirds of the population has been wiped out by war, nuclear bombs and total mayhem. This chaos is led by New World leader, Ludwig Tenebris, a young charismatic dictator who shows no mercy. His second in command is Roman Adamson. In their search to uncover the rebel army, Roman goes into a district where he discovers Charlotte Hatcher. Charlotte has a secret that saves her life, she can read minds. And so the New World leader acquires their best weapon, Charlotte, who eme [...]

    8. This review is more of my (negative)thoughts and reactions to the book rather than a normal review.Switch simply reminded me too much of WW2 Germany, with the Gestapo, the ruthless, crazy leader, his terrifying cronies and the malcontent rebels. Maybe it is because I have been reading Antony Beevor but the similarities where a bit cringe, to be honest. Obviously this was supposed to be the case, otherwise the city they lived in would not have been called 'New Berlin.' But it's like she couldn't [...]

    9. *I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*Rating: 5/5How is it with Janelle and her books that they always make me fall in love with the characters and the world that they live in. Switch is a NA novel and the beginning of an amazing new series. Knowing Janelle, this series is only going to get better, so I am really excited I read the first book and can't wait for the second one.Switch is set in the New World. It's 2040 and the world's population has been reduced to [...]

    10. Switch starts off fast, almost with a vengeance. You are sucked into the story the second you meet the main character miss charlotte/Dinah. Janelle Stalder paints a new world with such finesse you practically see it like a movie in your mind, but she also gifted us with a smooth transition. Instead of throwing the dystopian plot at you in one hurried over puffed up explanation, we get little pieces here and there enough to make sure you’re not lost but leaving you craving more. This is a dysto [...]

    11. I’ve read all of Janelle Stalder’s books. When I first came across her writing, I knew instantly that she was a writer with a natural ability to tell stories, and I read the first three books in the Eden Series in less than a week, and am looking forward to the finale of that series, which I know is due out soon. I’m glad I was able to read all of her works in the order of which they were written, because the progress she makes each time she turns out a work is something that, as I writer, [...]

    12. I was a bit disappointed with this book. There was no substantial progress in the plot all through the 200+ pages of the book and it felt that the story was more about the romantic developments of the main characters. The world building was lacking tooI wanted to know so many things. How New Berlin(the erstwhile city of London, which is the setting for the novel) looked as opposed to how it was before it got destroyed: "The once beautiful, historic facades were now nothing but crumbling brick an [...]

    13. 3.5I would like to thank Janelle for providing me with this ARC opportunity. :) Welcome to the Grey Side :)Janelle Stalder has an amazing ability to show the dark side as consisting more of shades of grey. The prologue, the premise and the storyline sets you up for an absolute rollercoaster ride. This would have been a full fat 4 stars, probably a 4.5/5, but its down to my personal taste, that I had to stick with my 3.5. Maybe I'm still on the Eden train. I'm not ready to get off ! My rating doe [...]

This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction Addiction4.5/5 stars.Switch is an amazing New Adult dystopian read that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the night!Charlotte has a secret - she can read minds. But when New World soldiers come marching into her life and her secret is revealed, her life is irrevocably changed.

    17. 4.5*sreview posted hereokpassionforlifeWow, I loved this book and I devoured it in one sitting. At 16, Charlotte Hatcher’s life is irrevocably changed starting with her mothers death right in front of her eyes. When her mind reading talent is exposed she is then faced with the option of joining the New World Order as ‘weapon X’ or die, she obviously takes the living option and becomes the greatest weapon in a tyrannical leaders arsenal as he all but destroys the world, decimating humanity [...]

    18. *I received this book in exchange for an honest review.Holy Crap, Brilliant book!I love the dystopian books but there are so many out there which I cant connect with making me not like them. Let me tell you SWITCH IS NOT ONE OF THEM! No sirreee. Thank you Janelle for giving me the chance to read Switch! I really needed this! It was a breath of fresh air. Seriously it was! The past week i've been going through books like it's chocolates, trying to find something new and different and boy let me t [...]

    19. If you're a fan of Dystopian Fantasy, filled with deceit, loss, betrayal and forbidden romance, not to mention enough intrigue to make your head spin, Switch by Janelle Stalder is a must read! The lines of right and wrong are blurred, as two-thirds of the world is destroyed and the survivors are caught between opposing factions, the ruling leader and the rebels who want freedom from the thumb of a dictator who uses a traumatized young girl as one of the most powerful and terrifying weapons in hi [...]

    20. Addicting- that is the word I would use for this book. I received an early copy to read and provide an honest review. I had intended to take notes as I went so that I could provide details. That went out the window shortly after I started reading. I was so consumed by this book; I read it in one sitting and am already dying for more.Two thirds of the world’s population has been wiped out due to a nuclear war and the people left behind are just trying to survive. The New World army is in charge [...]

    21. SwitchJanelle Stalder4.5/5.0All’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 [...]

    22. I got a copy in exchange for an honest reviewI love Janelle her Eden series and when I heard she was writing a dystopia book I was realy curious and excited, but for me Switch didn't live up to my expectations. I did like reading it for the most part, Janelle her writing style is really good and overall the pace of the book was good.The story starts off with a prologue, which was really interesting and captured my attention. I liked how the story began and it's written in multiple point of views [...]

    23. Oooh. Oooh ooooh ooooh!!Yes I know that all (of the three of you) who have ever read any of my other reviews are wondering who kidnapped me and replaced me with a 13 year old version of myself, but I'm perfectly okay with that. This book just brought that out, and very easily I might add.General Impressions and ThoughtsAs you probably already know, it is set in a dystopian future with a war between establishment and rebels as per usual in the genre, and in this one we have a girl in Charlotte wi [...]

    24. What?! How can you end this story like that?! I literally kept smacking my kindle in a frantic motion trying to get the next page to appear. I was astounded, which doesn't happen an awful lot.Firstly, an NA dystopian. Can I get a hell yeah? Yes please! It was different, we like different, but more importantly, it delivered. Charlotte/Dinah was a very diverse character (although she had to be really), but still managed to amaze and surprise me. She made decisions to save her life, but still manag [...]

    25. This is a hard book to write about. I felt very “meh” about it the whole time I was reading it and I continue to feel fairly ambivalent about it now that I’ve finished. I read it while I was camping, and I might have given up on it if I had been reading it at home while surrounded by all of my other books. I am glad that I stuck it out though; there were some really excellent elements to Switch, but I’m afraid the negative slightly outweighs the positive on this one. Switch starts off wi [...]

    26. I absolutely adore Janelle Stalder's work! The Eden Series is a remarkable read; the type of series I'll reread over and over. When I heard she had a brand new series, I practically did flips. Needless to say, I had high expectations for Switch and not only were they met, they were freakin' blown away!!! By far, the best dystopian I've read!The world building for Switch is perfect. You understand clearly (and so could see it happening) this future setting without getting a "history lesson" style [...]
