BOOK REVIEW: PARANORMALCY by KIERSTEN WHITE

Title:  PARANORMALCY
Author:   KIERSTEN WHITE
Publisher: Harper Collins
Pages:  Paperback, 335 pages
Acquired:  Purchased from The Book Depository

RATING:   4 out of 5 Pink Tasey Stars!!!

Description 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.


REVIEW:

I really enjoyed reading Paranormalcy.  Kiersten has given us a set of fantastic characters to follow throughout the book (and to be enjoyed further in the sequel Supernaturally!).

Evie's ability sets her apart from others in the normal world.....hence why all paranormal groups would love to get their hands on her!  Being kept away from the everyday life as a teenager, Evie longs for "normal" - though it is quite humorous that her "normal" is based on what she sees in a TV show!!!  Yes... a school locker can be the coolest thing ever!!!  Evie doesn't know any different than what she is advised by IPCA authorities and her main minder Raquel.  When she learns the truth about her position within IPCA, life as she has known it for so long just doesn't make sense anymore. 

Lend is a very lovable character. You easily forget he is made of water and fall in love with who he really is, just like Evie does.  Though being able to change your appearance to absolutely anyone is a pretty awesome skill!! Lend's taunting of IPCA is great and the eluding to give them any information is skillful.

Reth, oh Reth!!!  He is just such damned naughty faerie......but there's just something there that I keep being drawn to.  It must be the whole bad boy thing!!  He is trying to do the right thing....sort of....as long as it benefits him!!  The attraction Evie has for him on a controlled by a psychotic faerie level is very easily felt by the reader.

If you been sitting on the fence with reading this one......pick it up and read it.  You won't be sorry.  OH, and I would love to have Evie's pink taser Tasey!!!  What a great accessory!!






ENJOY!
