Review: "Paranormalcy" by Kiersten White

Title: Paranormalcy

Author: Kiersten White

Genre: YA Fantasy

Synopsis: Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shapeshifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamour, but still normal. Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there might be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal. . . .

Paranormalcy has become my new favorite book! I loved, loved, loved it. My fairy wings are buzzing all around with excitement from reading this book. I literally read it one day, people. ONE DAY. (It was that freaking good) It was unique in characters, plot lines and overall grooviness. Evie, is a bad*** with an affinity for pink and teen soap opera's. Readers will empathize will her and the predicament of her life. She is spunky, sarcastic, tough, and vulnerable. All she wants out of life is to go to a real high school and get kissed, now really is that too much to ask? Luckily, she meets Lend, a shapeshifter, and a heart throb without being cheesy. He is sweet, and funny and best of all he can take on the face of hot t.v celebs. (SCORE!!) He takes Evie out of her world and into his; finally giving Evie has the chance to experience "normalcy." Together they are in the fight of their lives, they are taking on the IPCA and horrible but extremely powerful paranormal intent on getting her hands on Evie. It must be noted that there is a slight love triangle, but I am hesitant to mention since I personally think that Reth, (Evie's ex-boyfriend, who is a faerie) is quite annoying. He is fiercely protective of Evie and means well, but he is incredible obnoxious and conceited and GRRRR, I so didn't like him one single bit. Even if he did make for some good scenes. Read this book, I am even contemplating buying it so I can read it again, it is that freaking good!!!
