Switched  - Amanda Hocking DNF.

So, I really didn't like Switched.

Here's the deal: Wendy is probably one of the most annoying protagonists I've ever read about. It's not that the story was boring, however much I read it - that wasn't it. I really didn't like the characters (plural), and if I don't, how can I read this book?

Wendy is of the following: annoying, bratty, selfish, tantrum-y, conceited, and whiny. (enter tons of bad adjectives here.)

Finn is of the following: trying-to-be-dark, trying-to-be-sexy, watches-protagonist-all-the-time, stalker, has no emotion, is a complete failure.

(I don't like how authors like their guys to be alluring or sexy or emotionless bastards or whatever. Sure, it's cool sometimes ... and sexy, but it's becoming some sort of YA trend and the effect of it is wearing off. I want some BAD SEXY SARCASTIC WITTY guy.)

The character I probably liked-ish was Matt.

But for a self-published book? Nope. Not my cup of tea.
