Paranormalcy by Kiersten White September 22, 2011

The Blurb:
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 shapeshifter 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 begins to suspect there is a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths, and even worse, that she is at the center of a dark prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

Ok, so where to begin with this book?

Well, Evie, our heroine, was very funny and I loved how she described everything. I am a huge fan of tv series and lockers myself and enjoy spending time inside her head. She had just the right mix of bravery, humour and irony. And all the way she was concerned with doing the right thing. I love a character that believes in something and sticks to that.

Now about the plot, the story was nice, well build, there where a lot of hints about everything so no major surprise, but I enjoyed it very much. But sometimes it felt like Evie didn’t had the chance to anything to move the plot forward, she was just drag around by everything that happened.

I also loved the titles of each chapter. That was one great touch! 🙂

The story of Sam and Grace is one of the most sweet love stories I’ve ever read.

Sam is a werewolf, a man who turns into a wolf when it’s cold. Grace was once bitten by wolves but ever since Sam saved her that night, a bond has started to bloom. One day Sam is shot and he turns into a human at the back yard of Grace. She immediatle recognises him and they story begins to unfold. With the threat of the winter and a new wolf loose in town they have to be extra careful.

This book was full of emotion and made me cry a lot. I really enjoyed the double PoV writing style. I especially loved Sam’s PoV cause it was easier to connect with him than Grace. I loved the ending and then took a look at the next book and I was like “Hell, why? How can they be so unlucky?”. But I’ll leave this one for winter, cause I really wanted to curl up with the book and a myg of hot cocoa but it’s boiling here…:P

Oh, and one last thing: Child Protective Services should really pay a visit at Grace’s house. Just a thought. 😉
