Review: Supernaturally

Author: Kiersten White
Pages: 336
Publisher: HarperTeen
Source: Library
Synopsis: 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.

Supernaturally... Wow. You know how there are some books you're so excited for that you don't want to finish? I was so excited for Supernaturally that I didn't even want to start it. Yeah, that's weird. I also probably over-hyped the book in my head.

The most awesome thing about Supernaturally is that, like Paranormalcy, the writing is so full of Evie and her voice. What girl could not like Evie and her attitude? She has a pink taser! Evie is a unique character in the sense that we know her and her likes. For example, I love that she cares about Easton Heights so much. Real people like TV shows, have hopes for the future, vulnerabilities and expectations. That was one of my favourite parts, reading about Evie expecting stuff to be a certain way and then finding out the truth. She's such a great character that you can't help but support her.

Evie and Lend. *Awwww* He's like the best boyfriend ever. He deserves an award for being so sweet and supportive but never boring. I was frustrated with Evie a bit when she wasn't honest with him but I still enjoyed reading about her and Lend. And I'm so glad Jack's character wasn't used to create more drama as a love triangle.

All the paranormals from Paranormalcy were back for Supernaturally, plus a few more. I love that these books have all kinds of paranormals in them. I learned of some new mythologys. And they all fit the story. There were many moral questions raised about the paranormals and Evie herself which I liked to see. I absolutely love morality questions. Kiersten White did an exemplary job making her world gray.

Now on to the plot. I love the writing and the characters so I would have read Supernaturally no matter what. I will admit in this aspect, Supernaturally was good but it didn't impress me as much as Paranormalcy. Mainly because I had for the most part, no idea what the main big problem was going to be. I was expecting some typical storyline so I was thrown off a bit by the more internal conflict. Supernaturally was a book full of revelations that doubtlessly will be important in upcoming books. As a book in a series, it's great. As it's own book, there's something to be desired.

Don't take it the wrong way- Supernaturally is fun, romantic, and addictive, read. I really really liked it and it's a great sequel. 4 stars,



  1. I had high expectations going into this book too, but unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as you did, or as much as I loved Paranormalcy. I'll still read Endlessly soon, and hopefully, I'll get some sense of closure.
    Great review!

    1. I agree that I also enjoyed Paranormalcy more. I hope you like Endlessly!

  2. Great review! We'll probably wait until the whole series is available at our library before finishing it, but definitely Kiersten has a great, funny writing voice that makes us enjoy her work, and her take on paranormals is so fresh!

    1. This series is a lot of fun, I hope you enjoy it! I do love the writing.
