Paranormalcy!


Paranormalcy
by Kiersten White.

synopsis (from Ms. White's webpage):

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.


it seems like all too often, the books i'm excited for and dying to read just don't live up to the hype. or their beautiful covers.

i am SO glad to say that this was not the case with Paranormalcy! my rating: 4.6

this book rocks. the voice, the paranormal creatures, and the story were all wonderfully fresh. reading Paranormalcy was like a splash of cool water--tingly, exciting, and at times, downright startling. even when i thought i knew what was going to happen, i really didn't. the story was utterly unpredictable.

my one complaint: too much was left unfinished! but i guess that's where the sequel comes in...eventually. bleep! i hate waiting for a good book. please hurry, Ms. White!

  1. Loved this book. Evie was nice and strong with a great voice. And I didn't expect the twists either. Bleep was awesome. And I can't wait for the next one either.
