Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)Goodreads Bit:    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.

My Thoughts:

-    The book is filled with humor.  I love Evie's descriptions of the paranormals.  It cracked me up every time!  The Little Mermaid thing was really funny.  I completely agree, and I think I might have to dedicate a blog to Ariel one day.  I also like the sigh interpretations, such a teenage girl thing.  

-    Evie was a very believable teenage girl.  I really liked her (except for the pink).  She was a fun character.  I felt like was reading a tv sitcom, like Sabrina the Teenage Witch or something. 

-    Reth reminded me of Arial from Eyes Like Stars.  I like Arial much better though. 

-    The book is a very clean read.  I was really impressed and happy about that.  I loved how the characters said "bleep" in place of curse words, so funny!

-    This is a very refreshing take on the paranormal genre.  I liked it.  

-    It was like Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Hellboy meets Eyes Like Stars meets Gallagher Girls.  

-    The romance got a little mushy for me, and I kinda felt like "oh brother."  

-    The ending was good, and there wasn't a cliffhanger.  There are still things left undone, but I got some closure.

-    There were a few bits that were annoying, but overall it was a good/light/fun read.
