Author: Kiersten White
Release Date: August 31, 2010
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.MY THOUGHTS:
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.

Oh, bleep, I loved this book!
Evie was an awesome character to read about! She was smart and snarky, kick-ass and hilariously funny. Not once did I think that she was a weakling who couldn't take care of herself. Sure, she may have had her moments of immaturity but all those little things were easy to understand, considering she'd been living in a containment facility practically all her life.
Paranormalcy, despite the dominant paranormal aspect, was realistic. Kiersten White managed to write this novel in a way that was extremely easy to believe (especially since there was no love-at-first sight drama)... except maybe the fact that the vampires could be taken down with a pink taser.
(Maybe I'm just too used to reading about the glamorized and perfect vamps who can run back and forth across a field before you even blink an eye.)
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed Paranormalcy! It was a nice and flirty read with a very modern voice and characters you couldn't help but adore (like Lish! And Lend! ♥). I can't wait until the sequel, Supernaturally, is released!
BUY or BORROW?: If I wasn't as broke as I am (which sucks), this book would definitely be part of my large collection of books!
