    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.

Sophie Mercer is more than your average loner. She's the "freak", the "weirdo", and, thanks to a love spell gone wrong, "the witch". Now, because of her risking exposure not only for her, but for almost all of the Paranormal world, she's sent to Hecate Hall, a reform school for Prodigium (otherwise known as paranormal creatures, such as witches, werewolves and shape shifters). Sophie's luck seems to worsen, when she immediately ticks off a dark witch coven, develops a crush on the most coveted (and undeniably taken) boy in the school, and has gets detention that'll last all of the semester. Can this get any worse for Sophie? Well apparently it can, because students in the school are getting attacked, and all signs point to Sohpie's roommate. Even if Sophie is sure of her roommate's innocence, how can she prove it to a whole school that thinks otherwise? Now Sophie has to find out who (or what) is attacking before it attacks her next. And here she thought she could be normal for once...

So, this book was a refreshing read. I picked this up because it was just what I wanted: a light, fun read.

The setting is similar to other stories with paranormal boarding schools. What makes this book stand out from the rest is the fact that it actually focuses on the paranormal aspect.

What I liked the most about this book was the way that it could make you love the idea of being a witch. It made it seem like the most amazing thing in the world.

The way the story was paced, I did NOT expect the major plot twist that occurred here. I still can't believe it. I really hope that for the sequel this is resolved.

Overall, I found this a great read for when you're recovering from a book hangover. Just for originality, I give this 4 stars. ( )

Badass witches rule! I want to be like Sophie! I want to have badass powers and be able to beat the bad guys. Oh, and Archer is really hot and you know...
This book for me is about self-discovery and evolution and I can relate myself a lot to it. ( )

This was a fast read, the first in a series I think. Witches, shapeshifters, faeries, vampires and demons all go to reform school...

Epigraph
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.
