Debut Author Challenge #3 Audiobook Review + INFINITE DAYS Givaway

PARANORMALCY- Kiersten White 

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) Evie thought her biggest challenges were resisting the allure of her fairy ex-boyfriend and getting home after tagging a vampire in time to see her favorite TV show. But Evie's paranormal world is about to get turned upside down.

As a Reader:

Ally Carter tone meets the paranormal last. I loved the voice of this book, edgy and humorous, and the protag is so relatable. My only problem is that, even though I saw the cover ahead of time and think it's gorgeous, I still can't see Evie as a blonde with high-maintenance hair.

As a Writer:

One of the biggest challenges of writing an invincible villain is making him/her vincible in the end. Even Stephen King has problems with this in some of his books (IMO). So, I was left a little confused about the status of the villain and even Evie at the end of this book, but maybe that was on purpose for the series.

For Audiobook listeners, I had to get this one through Audible since my library hasn't acquired it yet.

As for the giveaway, I have an ARC of INFINITE DAYS, also a debut paranormal novel, for someone who comments on Which paranormal read has been your favorite this year?  


  1. The one that sticks out to me is Gail Carriger's Soulless. It was for adults. But I loved it. And I'm waiting for my library to get Paranormalcy. I just need to be patient. :)

  2. I'm dying to read Paranormalcy and I know I'll have to fold and buy it because my library will take forever to get a copy or even have it available... means I'll have to coax the husband. Don't worry, I can handle it.

    As for Infinite days, I'm very intrigued. It sounds great!

    I just rounded you out to 40 followers!! Hooray!

  3. Definitely waiting for Paramormalcy! Have heard so much about it!!

  5. (reposting to correct grammar)

    I read Paranormalcy (twice!) on my iPad. The first read was a real page-turner. On the second read, I caught a more of Kiersten's subtle humor.

    If we don't count the Twilight Saga that I've read more times than I can remember, Paranormalcy is my favorite paranormal read of the year so far!

  6. ps. I just read a review of Infinite Days. It sounds like a terrific, lose-sleep, kind of read!
