Paranormalcy - Kiersten White

My rating: 5/5
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.

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!

  2. Great review.
    I loved this one.
    I am SO Evie. A tough chica with a fascination with pink ;)

  3. Fun review :) I really enjoyed this book. I like how Evie was light and funny like you said, but then also had depth to her. I think she was made more complex by her desire to be normal and the fact that she really wasn't.
