Series Sunday: Paranormalcy Trilogy by Kiersten White

Titles: Parnormalcy, Supernaturally, Endlessly
Author: Kierten White
Publisher: HarperTeen
Number of Books: Three
Review: Four Stars

These books were fun. There were one-linerers that were laugh-out-loud funny and I enjoyed reading them. The first book was definitely the best in the series. After I read Paranormalcy, I ended up putting down the series for a while. I eventually picked Supernaturally back up. It took two tries to pick it up and a third to get through it, but Supernaturally was worth it. The chapter names were hilarious, which sure helped. Finally, I picked up Endlessly and was reading full speed ahead. Again, I found it kind of slow, but the book was worth it. More than once in the series, I wanted to smack the characters upside the head/throw the book against the wall, but that's a good thing. Right?

The main character is Evie. She's got spunk. She's got enough sass to spread around. Evie is incredibly sarcastic and she knows it. Though she feels insecure like any other teenage girl, she also carries around a pink taser named Tasey. 'Nuff said. She's completely kick-a** when she wants to be, but it's due to an entire life of training. Evie can easily take down a rogue vampire or werewolf, as well as any crazy faery that comes in her path. The male protagonist Lend is an okay character. I feel like readers don't get enough about his past, but that might be because it took so long between books. I really want to smack him
sometimes, but he makes up for it. He looks out for Evie, even when she doesn't need it. Evie infuriated me at points, but in the grand scheme of things, I really loved her.

The series had an awesome start that, didn't necessarily go downhill, but kind of mellowed out. Characters were slightly flatter as the books went on. The ending though, was not what I expected. The books are fun and quirky, with a supernatural twist. I couldn't help but root for the characters in the end, which really says something. While I may not reread them, I definitely will not forget these books. Forgiveness and family were big themes in the books. And after reading them, I can tell that family doesn't necessarily mean blood. All in all, these books fully deserve these four stars!

Author Bio:

Hi! I give the most awkward hugs in the world. I also write books. I'd opt for one of my books over one of my hugs. Lucky for you, I write a lot of them.

The New York Times bestsellingParanormalcy trilogy (Paranormalcy,Supernaturally, and Endlessly) is available now. Mind Games, the first in a new series, is also out. An Egyptian mythology-based standalone, The Chaos of Stars, follows in fall 2013, with the sequel to Mind Games in February, 2014. And another book after that. And after that? Another one. I'm a very busy girl.

But the dishes never get done.

You Can Find Her At:


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.
