Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

Released: July 26, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rated: YA
Series: Paranormalcy, Book 2
Buy Amazon | Book Depository
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.

What I thought

I was hoping for a little more out of this. I loved the first and I was really excited for the sequel. It was still a good read, but it didn't feel as exciting as the first. But I did like the story, even when I figured it out half way through the book.

I really like Evie. She's a great character. She's had to make some choices in this book and I was kind of glad to see her make some of the ones I wanted her to. I was a little scared when Lend and Evie started having problems but I was glad that it didn't last the whole book and it wasn't dragged out to the next to keep readers hanging on to something. I actually thought the fight and the resolution felt real. That both sides had concerns that overwhelmed them but they eventually were able to bring all that stuff to the table and air it out.

At first, I was a little sad that this wasn't a little more focused on the romance side, but after a bit, I was able to lose myself in the story and was able to forget about everything else. While I was able to figure out the mystery really fast, I was still hanging on to every word to figure out the why. Very good writing.

This is a very exciting series and I'm very excited to see more from Kiersten White.

I really loved the first book and was pleasantly surprised that I did. I hope I love this one too and I am glad to hear that Evie and Lend were through their fighting I hate when the first book of a series has the couples so in love and the second book has them apart for most of the time.

I do too! But this wasn't bad. They didn't spend the whole book in a disagreement or misunderstanding. They actually worked through it (realistically) but it didn't consume the book.

I felt the same way as you! I really liked it but wished for more romance. Evie was still pretty awesome though and I'm glad she's learning some stuff. Can't wait for the next one!
