Book Review Friday

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.

So much for normal.

This isn’t one of my normal in-depth reviews because I thought I could better describe my reader experience through fewer words. Here’s my review of Paranormalcy by Kiersten White:

This book was an amazing read. I've never read anything quite like this before in the YA genre. The world-building was fantastic and everything just felt so original to me. The characters were delightful to read about and although the stakes weren't quite as high I thought they would be I really enjoyed the pace and the solidity of the writing. The relationship between the protagonist Evie and the love interest Lend was believable, and developed slowly throughout the course of the novel. I'd recommend Paranormalcy to anyone who’s looking for something different from the paranormal genre.
