#DustOffYourBookshelf (#8)

Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Mandy @ The Reading Diaries have teamed up to encourage themselves and others to use Instagram more. 

 So they came up with #Dustoffyourbookshelf where you display a book that you have had on your shelf for a long time and probably forgotten about. If you have time to grab it off the shelf and read it that is great, but you don’t have to read what you display. You can be creative in your displaying or you can just take a picture of it on your shelf. They are mainly doing this to get into Instagram but thought it would be fun to do a post on Thursdays since there's normally not a lot to post for Thursdays. It’s not technically a meme yet unless they get some followers, so join in the fun! 

 You can follow them on Instagram @bmreviewsohmy & @ReadingDiaries

I'm actually on Instagram quite a bit, so I figured this sounded like fun.

Here's what I found this week:

 Trylle trilogy by Amanda Hocking

Enter The World of the Trylle
When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers she is a changeling who was switched at birth. Now she is about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening.
Nothing Is as It Seems

Wendy knew her life would never be the same. Now she learns there is more to the story. She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined. With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to master her magical powers—and marry an equally powerful royal. Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate.
Wendy is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself. If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe. Everything has been leading to this moment. The future of her entire world rests in her hands.

I can't believe I haven't read these yet! I've always meant to and I feel kind of bad that I haven't. I bought them a long time ago, but newer books just kept getting piled up around them. I'm posting these as my #DustOffYourBookshelf today because I am officially making it my goal to have these read by the end of the summer. You heard it here, now I have to stick to it! I also just realized that the books are out of order in my picture. Oh, well. They look pretty. For some reason, the picture looks better on Instagram, too. It's clearer and brighter.

Have you read this series?
