Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

     Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2)

Title: Supernaturally
Author: Kiersten White
Series: Paranormalcy #2
Pages: 336
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: January 5th 2012 (UK)
Source: For Review
Rating: 4 stars
100 Book challenge: #1

A lot has changed in the six months since Evie escaped from the International Paranormal Containment Agency with her shape-shifter boyfriend, Lend. She finally has the blissfully normal life she’s always dreamed of including: 
1) A real live high school 
2) A perfectly ordinary after-school job 
3) Her very own locker (and by the way, rusted metal is every bit as awesome as she imagined) 

But Evie’s not-so-normal past keeps creeping up on her...and things get pretty complicated when you factor in: 
1) A centuries-old, seriously decaying vampire stalker 
2) A crazy faerie ex-boyfriend who is the perpetual bearer of really bad news 
3) A major battle brewing between the faerie courts where the prize in question happens to be...Evie herself. 

So much for normal.

Paranormalcy spoilers but spoiler free for Supernaturally

I adored Paranormalcy. Evie is such a fun character and I couldn't wait to catch up with her. Evie is living out the normal life she wanted but it has become slightly monotonous and has lost the appeal it once had. Raquel offers Evie a job at IPCA with the freedom she lacked the last time. With Evie wanting to reconnect with her other life whilst not hurting Lent, her life is anything but simple. It also seems that she is being targeted but why and who are a complete mystery.

Evie had the same spunk she did in Paranormalcy. She is a flawed character but that is what makes her so relatable. Her need to keep secrets to not hurt Lend's feelings is wrong but understandable. The relationship between the two is so nice to read about, despite that there are a few problems. 

The thing I love most about this series is that it is so unique. It isn't a typical  paranormal. This book also didn't have second book syndrome. It has the same fun as the first and White did not get Lend and Evie to do the big, predictable, break up because, you know, what else is there to do? It wasn't a romance, it has so many other elements.

The ending was a complete shock to me. I was kept in suspense the whole novel and I love it when that happens. I am really interested to see how the trilogy is going to the end. The ending wasn't a cliffhanger which was nice. I am just excited to see more Evie and Lend :)
