    Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (snazz)
    snazz: Paranormalcy is another YA paranormal series with a snarky and completely loveable main character as well as a swoon-worthy romance. Plus the plot is similar in that it deals with an organization controlling paranormals.

From experience I know that I don't usually enjoy YA fiction. I tend to get annoyed by the usual characters who are too dim to be realistic, and who tend to roll their eyes on every other page. But sometimes something calls to me and I just can't resist reading one. I downloaded a sample of this book and the story pulled me in. It seemed to be written intelligently.

This was a surprisingly engrossing story of a teenage witch named Sophie who is sent to a boarding school for supernatural teenagers who have messed up in one way or another. In Sophie's case it was a love spell gone wrong. I won't go into the plot, but Sophie is a sympathetic and fairly bright character. This book came at a time I needed something light but engrossing, and I enjoyed reading it. ( )

Well, I am glad I picked this book up. I am generally not into witches/wizards/magic and that's part of the reason I didn't want to read it. And books that are over talked about, I really don't get to as quickly because a lot of times, I don't like them, at all. But this was a pleasant surprise. Although it was better than expected, it wasn't scream off the highest mountain great.

I love Sophie & Jenna. Sophie wasn't as whiny as many main characters could be. She had her doubts about her abilities as a 'witch'..But in this case, I can't say I blame her because she wasn't raised around other people with her abilities.

And I had my suspicions about who was doing what in the book. Well, I wasn't totally wrong about some things but wasn't completely right either. I started off loving the grandmother but by the end of the book, well, not so much.

Archer, well, I have a love/strongly dislike for him! I can't totally dislike him because I saw where he actually did have a heart.

I may go on to Demonglass once I get through some more of my books on my Kindle. Because right now, I have too many on there for me to excuse getting any more books! lol...Plus, I wasn't so into the book that I must go on right now!

The main reason I did get this book was because I saw it on my library's ebook/audio book website, so I decided to try it because, well, it was free. I picked it up in August and read a chapter or two but at that time I wasn't in much of a mood to read, plus, I wanted to go on to other books. So no, it didn't actually take my a month to read it per say...because once I did pick it up, it only took me a few days to read it. ( )

Witches, werewolves, a vampire, and a lot of humor are all present in the first book in this paranormal series about a rebellious teenage witch sent to a reform school.

Sophie is a born witch with powers that go terribly awry. After her latest disaster, she is sent to an isolated reform school with other witches, faeries, and shapeshifters. She finds herself in danger when an unknown predator starts attacking students.

A more juvenile novel in the style of Vampire Academy. ( )

A good YA paranormal tale. ( )

My mother says I must not pass

Too near the glass;

She is afraid that I will see

A little witch that looks like me;

With a red mouth to whisper low,

The very thing I should not know.

Book description
When Sophie Mercer turned thirteen, she discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-Gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hecate Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward prodigium, a.k.a. witches, fae, and shapeshifters. By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard. Three powerful enemies who look like supermodels; a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock; a creepy, tag-along ghost; and a new roommate, who happens to be the most-hated person and only vampire on campus. Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her friend Jenna is the number one suspect. Meanwhile, Sophie has a more personal shock to grapple with. Not only is her father the head of the prodigium council, he's the most powerful warlock in the world, and Sophie is his heir. As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all prodigium, especially her.
