Heidi (Yup. Still here.) Ugh! I am over most of these paranormal series. There is only a handful of them I like. It is not my genre.

Peep (Pop! Pop!) But the cover was soooo pretty. And it wasn't awful, it just wasn't very good. And I enjoyed making fun of it! But I think this will be one of those popular ones because it's so fluffy.

That's why i mix it up with adult books, otherwise I start getting wayyy to critical.

Aerin Wow, Peep. I'm known to be harsh, but I can't conceive of giving this one 2 stars. It was way better than Two Princesses of Bamarre, for example.

Peep (Pop! Pop!) Gasp! I'll pretend you didn't say that!


And I didn't hate it, so that's why it got two stars. I didn't like it, so that's why it didn't get three. This seems like one of those books that people really liked or didn't, at least based on what my friends here on GR have rated it. I couldn't see this one being 5 stars at all. Though, if someone asked if they should or skip, I'd say read it.

Heidi (Yup. Still here.) 2 stars means "it was ok" - it is still acceptable.

Amy Best review ever. I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one who wasn't crazy about it. It was too lighthearted and fluffy and happy that when the story needed to be grim and somber, it couldn't. Stupid tricksy cover..

I think this was the first book that I've read where the paranormals were extremely lame and so unimpressive. They were weaker than humans. They let humans control them. How could you not know basic self defense? I mean, they let themselves get caught by a 16 year old girl with a stun gun who admittedly does not work out!!! Do they have bricks for feet or something?? Really, they sit and patiently take accept it and politely ask questions. Me? I'd ask a question to distract her, karate chop her in the neck, and run like there's a 49 cent sale on best sellers at the nearest bookstore.

THIS. I completely second this.

Erica (daydreamer) You're review made me laugh. I haven't read Paranormalcy, so I don't know if I'd like it or not. Even if I did like the book, I'd still like your review :)

Peep (Pop! Pop!) Thanks Erica and Amy! I heart comments. (`') <-- That was supposed to be a heart but it looks like a sideways pacman. I accept my failure.

Amy! Please don't get me started on that cover again. And I was just getting over Hex Hall's cover lies!!!

Erica, you should still read it. I don't think it's a book to skip at all. Read it... become one of us....

Erica (daydreamer) I plan to, just don't when I'll be able to. I don't want to buy it, because of several reviews like yours, but my public library is so dang small, it'll never get it! Ah well, I'll find it somewhere.

Peep (Pop! Pop!) Wow, I just looked at the book page and it looks like everybody else liked it. Oh well!

You could buy it and if you don't like it, give it to your library. Hahaha. That's what I usually do. My local library has a ton of books that didn't make the cut. They like it though.

Tenoko1 Love your comments. Seriously. Yeah, I picked it up thinking it was going to be like the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong, that seriously creepy, but not enough to keep me up, sort of dark tone with romance, nail biting tension, action packed kind of book. I'm halfway through and waiting for the book to start. There has to be a plot SOMEWHERE in there right? Something a little gripping? Will settle for a light tap on the shoulder to get my attention... No? *sigh*

message 12: by Peep (Pop! Pop!) (new)

Peep (Pop! Pop!) It'll pick up somewhere in there, you just hang on! I believe in you!! And nail biting is a bad habit. You should try good habits, like helping me clean my inbox. That always makes people (mainly only me) happy!

Miss Clark Very good review. Esp. the part about the weak paranormals and Vivien....

message 14: by Peep (Pop! Pop!) (new)

Peep (Pop! Pop!) Thanks Miss Clark! Glad you liked it. DO you plan on reading the next book? Wonder when it's coming out? Maybe it'll be darker than this one?

message 15: by Miss Clark (new)

Miss Clark No, I don't. When I have over 300 books to-be-read, I have to prioritize. SUPERNATURALLY comes out in July, 2011.

message 16: by Peep (Pop! Pop!) (new)

Peep (Pop! Pop!) Hahaha, I know what you mean about the tbr pile. I'll probably read the next one if the cover is pretty. I'm just sayin'.

message 17: by Cindy III (new)

Cindy III I love that you would 'karate chop' Evie.

message 18: by Peep (Pop! Pop!) (new)

Peep (Pop! Pop!) I take my karate chops seriously. I'd even make the hiYAH sound.
