Book Recommendation - Paranormalcy

By Kiersten White

Blurb from Goodreads: "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 shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, 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 may 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."

Bleeping awesome. That's what this book was. It's a quick, enjoyable read.

Evie is an enjoyable character that you can't help but like. I mean, she loves pink sparkly things. How much better does it get? It doesn't. She's witty and sweet, but also a badass when she needs to be.

Knock out a few zombies? No problem. Deal with Reth, the psycho faerie? Whoa, no way.

This book is great for escaping for a while. Kiersten pulls you in so you feel everything Evie does. The writing is smooth and makes it easy to breeze through chapters without realizing just how much you've read.

I suggest you all give it a try. It's nothing short of a really great story.

URGH!!! How did you get this book? AURGH! It's on my Fall Reading list, which means I have to read it by winter break.

Sounds like a great book. Hence why I'm going nuts trying to find a copy.

I almost bought this on Saturday, but didn't in fear of getting nothing done. Thank you for proving that.
