Paranormalcy - Kiersten White
Summary (from Goodreads): 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.
My review: Wow. That's all there is to say.
Okay, maybe there's more than just that, but I must say something before. I want to send you guys all to Kiersten White's blog, mostly because she's the funniest author I have ever seen. http://kierstenwrites.blogspot.com/
I thought that Paranormalcy was going to be creepy, mysterious, and some more creepy. It wasn't. It was slightly mysterious, maybe, but it was mostly just a funny, light read. Even from the first paragraph, I knew that Evie wasn't someone who took everything in a dead-serious manner. And I liked that about her. She was a great main character to read about!
Lend was a fun character too! Lend was the shape-shifter that Evie was falling for. He was strange to me in the beginning because of the way that Kiersten (or Evie; take your pick) described him like he was watery. I grew to like him though, so he was probably my favourite character in the book.
One of the things that I liked the most was Evie's craving for normalcy. She was jealous of Lend for having a driver's license, a locker, and she was even jealous that he got to go to school. She was so funny in the way that she wanted to live like a human. I liked the way that she named her pink taser Tasey. I laughed when I saw that.
In general, the whole book made me laugh, and it's definitely a book that I would recommend to all YA/paranormal fans!
