REVIEW: Paranormalcy By Kiersten White

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.

It is possibly one of the best books I have read in a while. It was funny, sassy and overall a great book to get stuck into. My brother had to pry it out of my hands. Literally.

Evie is a bright and bubbly girl who loves nothing more than the colour pink... okay, maybe Lend ranks with pink or above... with Tasey. She loves Easton Heights due to the fact that she has never been to a real high school or into the outside world for more than a shopping spree (which I can imagine IPCA prefer due to them having to cancel many of her shopping orders) or doing her job of tagging paranormals. Evie is a fun and very unique character in her own ways, such as little funny comments and obsessions that pop out of her mouth alongside her fascination for lockers (sadly I do not share this fascination due to being scarred by my friends lovely blue locker which had a cake left in there, for only...6 weeks? Yuck!) and a driving licence. She is strong and independent, she thinks quickly on her own feet and can be very sarcastic at times.

The plot was very unique and imaginative; I have always loved a paranormal, spy twist. Kiersten really brought her own ideas into the supernatural world allowing us to see a different side to all the species and the way that, for example, underneath the vampires angelic appearance, they were made of wilting old bones...ew! The pace was excellent and was never too slow or over the top explanatory, it was straight to the point and beautifully written. I was consistently laughing out loud and am so glad I read it! There is danger, suspense and a real air of mystery to this book, and who knew a Fae could be so evil and cunning...

Ican't wait to read the next book in the sequel, Supernaturally!

Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed's not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being 'different' for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend's sister's birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.
From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully's “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys' room (Jed's always l…

When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn h…
