Paranormalcy by Kiersten White Review and Giveaway

Published: August 2010
Publisher: Harper Collins
Pages: 352
From: Barnes and Nobel (purchased)

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. 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.


Paranormalcy was a very refreshing and interesting look on the paranormal.

Evie is a great character. She is brave, intelligent, and supernatural. Evie is vital to her company because she can do what no other can. She can see through glamours. I found myself feeling a little sorry for her. She felt like she had no one expect her mermaid best friend. Lend was awesome. I love his ability, and I think Evie and him would make such a cute couple. Lend's mother is a hoot as well.

I really liked Paranormalcy, and I love the cover. This is one to read!

  2. Hi! I'm new to your site and giveaways and I have a question. On your entry forms, where you ask for twitter, facebook, sidebar or blog links, are you asking if we mentioned the giveaway or if we're following you on the various social sites?
    Thanks in advance!

  5. I'd like to be able to read minds. I'd always know what everyone was thinking. I could say the perfect thing or annoy the hell out of anyone. And I'd know if someone was plotting to kill me. :D

  7. I'd like to be able to read someone's mind. One of my biggest beefs is someone who is lying to me. That way, I'd know for sure...

  10. I used to ask this question of people all the time... If you could have any super power, what would you want? I think I'd go with telepathy. Either that or invisibility. :)
