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. 

This book is said to be for grades 7 and up and is the first in a series.  

Rachel's Thoughts: I really liked this book! I had a hard time putting it down! It was such a unique idea. We have fairies, hags, vampires, werewolves, water spirits, gremlins, trolls and more. Unlike popular stories lately, she puts a bad spin on vampires as well as fairies. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy this book, I can't wait to get my hands on the next one in the series.I gave this book 4 bookmarks.

Lakela's Thoughts: I gave this book 5 bookmarks. 


  1. I've been wanting to read this book. Great review. I think I'll check it out at some point. The house is looking like a hoarder lives here for sure.

  2. writing contest.....My blog Amish Stories is having its first ever contest this week. The First prize winner will win 2 tickets to tour the farm where the 1985 move "Witness" staring Harrison Ford and Kelly Mcgillis was made in Strasburg,Pa . This farm is now Amish owned, and the family has given permission for folks to tour their farm. This may be the last time anyone will be able to walk and see the same things that Harrison Ford and the other actors saw during the making of "Witness". The Witness tour should last about 2.5 hours. In addition to the Witness farm tour tickets, 1st prize winner will also receive 2 tickets for Jacobs choice. There will also be a 2nd place prize, which will be 2 tickets for the Amish Homestead. Please go to My blog for contest details, and more information on the prizes. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.

  3. I really loved this book!! So great :) Can't wait for Supernaturally!!

    Also, I wanted to share a site with you!! I noticed that you are "treasure hunting" for books to share with your daughter, I also know that sometimes you just can't keep up with everything they want to read, so if you ever wanted to look into a book you haven't read yet for her you should check out
    They tell exactly what content is in each book (cuss words, violence, sexual content, creatures, ect.) and they also read books based on parent request. It's a great resource for parents of teens!!

    Anyway, not trying to spam you or anything, I just though you might be interested and wanted to share!!!

  4. Thanks for the good review! Yes, "clean" writing and books are hard to find. It kind of depends on what parents/teens are objecting to or offended by, I think.

  5. Reading Angel~ Thanks so much for the advice. I'll definitely check that site out. Yes, she reads way faster than I can keep up!

    Carol~ I completely agree that what is "clean" can be different for every family. That's why I chose to simply write the negative and positive elements. That way a parent can decide on their own. For example, I don't care if my tween reads about vampires (whether they're portrayed as good or bad) but I know parents who wouldn't on any circumstance. Plus, each child is sensitive in their own ways to different things. :) So I am in 100% agreement with you. :)

  6. I've heard so many good things about this book. One day I'll get a chance to read it! :)
