Supernaturally (Paranormalcy, 2) - Kiersten White
Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.
But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.
So much for normal.

What can you say about a book series that is so cute, and so different from any 'paranormal' book out there, that it deserves a category all of its own?
Bleeping awesome, that's what.
I LOVE the main character of these books. Evie is such a funny character, dumb in a funny way that makes her so smart. I love how in this book she's done (well, at first) dealing with the IPCA for a while, and being her own person. Before, she was realizing that she wasn't her own person: she was basically a pawn for a company that was harming paranormals, and she didn't like that.
She wants to be normal.
She wants...a locker.
Kiersten White is now one of my favorite authors. No, it's not because she named and bedazzled a taser for her awesome character, or because she made the male lead among the cutest male leads ever. It's because she knows how to write interesting characters, an even more interesting story line, and well, funny books.
In her world, most of the paranormals are just trying to get by. You have the evil bleeping (oh, and curse words are as 'bleep'. Maybe I should do that...) faeries, and the blood-sucking vampires, but then you have harmless trolls and gnomes who are literally just trying to make it in our world.
It's kind of confusing, realizing that Evie lives with one of those blood-sucking vamps, but she's not evil...only some vamps are. Oh, then you remember that Evie use to DATE one of those evil bleeping faeries, and it gets a little confusing. But it's still worth the read. Really. It is.
Basically, it's a book of Good vs. Evil. In better shoes. (There. My summary, people. I could delete this review and post that and it'd be bleeping perfect!)
In her world, Evie, our awesome main character goes around tasing people.
What the bleep more could you ASK for in a book?
Oh, and I'll let you in on a little hint: THE COVERS ARE GORGEOUS. I love Supernaturally's cover, but the first book, Paranormalcy's cover, is like, really awesome. Like, really bleeping awesome. 4/5 stars.
