Paranormalcy by Kiersten White


Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone--or something--starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal. 

Normal is so overrated.

The much talked-about book is finally being reviewed here! Woo. Okay let's get it down.

I really liked Paranormalcy for different reasons. I loved the main character most of the time. Evie is strong and bad-ass. She is funny and has a really good heart. The only thing was that sometimes it was too much and it felt really pushy. Sort of annoying. Thankfully. that didn't happen often.

Lend is just adorable. I don't know if I LOVE him just yet because he seems like a very cliche'd guy in the book but he was entertaining and really cute. I look forward to seeing more of them.

I had to go back and re-read the ending for a second here (which can be kind of bad but may mean that I have been really busy). What an ending! It was definitely breathtaking and surprising. I don't want to reveal too much but I was surprised and shocked near the end.

Oh, and what an original premise, too.

In one sentence: "A great debut with great potential."

I liked the honesty in this review- I'm looking forward to this but I like having information about what worked and what didn't, because 'OMG SQUEE' is not very helpful. :) Have I mentioned that I'm super jealous?
