Supernaturally by Kiersten White (Review)

Genre: Paranormal
Number of Pages: 336
For ages 12+


"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."

I decided to take a small break from the ARCs and read a book that just came out. Supernaturally! Don't worry there will be another ARC review next week! I was so excited to read Supernaturally by Kiersten White, because I loved Paranormalcy. You can find my review on that here.

I've seen many reviews saying that this book was a filler book leading up to the third. Unfortunately, and this is heart breaking, it was. There wasn't a whole lot going on in this book.

I loved Evie's voice in this book. She was still the same kick butt, girly girl that I came to know and love in the first book, which was a relief. There were knew things to learn in this book. There were. So I'm not telling you, "Don't waste your time reading this book." You need to read it. It's got things that can't be missed.

Lend is still hot as ever. Thank goodness! He's still the sweet, swoon worthy Lend. The sad thing was.. He wasn't in it as much. He's off at college a lot in this one. So, bummer. Don't worry, though. Lend is still in the book a lot. Praise the lord. Oh man, If there were situations where you're yelling, "WHERE'S LEND WHEN YOU NEED HIM?!" He would be there the next paragraph later.

This was a quick read for me. I would be at page 50 and then the next thing I know, I'm at page 100. So, that shows you that this book is good. So don't give up hope! There were points in this book where it seemed like things just didn't match up. Hence, the filler vibe.

Kiersten's writing was still fantastic, as always. I'm still looking forward to the third book to see what she makes of it from the events that happened in the second.

Even though it seems like this book wasn't the best, it was still pretty good. It definitely did not advance to the quality of Paranormalcy, but it wasn't TERRIBLE. I give this book 4 out of 5 diva crowns. The characters were just as strong, but I wish the story line was a little more neat.


Don't forget that there is one week left to enter my giveaway to win a SIGNED ARC of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi! You can find that giveaway here! Enter, enter, enter!

Also, I love me some comments so comment away! ;)

I was disappointed by this book two. I actually think besides little plot, Evie lost her voice too. She became a little too dependent on her boyfriend in this one (Too Bella for me). And she didn't seem to possess an instinct. Didn't the antagonist seem kind of obvious pretty early?
