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.The Supernaturally Playlist
In this Amazon exclusive playlist, author Kiersten White shares the tunes that best sum up her new novel, Supernaturally.
"Missing" by Flyleaf
I imagine this song playing for Evie when she’s feeling most down, worrying that whatever is missing inside of her will never be fixed.
"Oh, It Is Love" by Hellogoodbye
This sweet, happy love song has always been Evie and Lend’s song for me. When it comes to relationships, they both have this type of hopeful innocence.
"All I Wanted" by Paramore
Another song for Evie when she is feeling like everything is lost.
"Misguided Ghosts" by Paramore
A song about trying to find a place in a world you don’t feel like you’re really living in.
"Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri
I’ve heard from many people (and agree) that this is a great song for Evie and Reth’s past.
"The Drumming Song" by Florence + the Machine
The intensity and focused passion of this song makes me think of my darling Jack, along with the references to heaven and hell, a favorite theme of his.
"Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse
This is one of my favorite “Reth” songs, though he’d never bother listening to human music…
"I Will Possess Your Heart" by Death Cab for Cutie
Another song for Reth and Evie’s relationship, evoking his feelings of inevitability when it comes to being with Evie.
"I Will Follow You into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie
This song lends itself well to musings on the realities of a mortal/immortal relationship. If you’re prone to musing about such things, which I am.
"Engines" by Snow Patrol
“I know I love you like the sunlit water on your skin.” Another love song for Evie and Lend.
"Give Me Strength" by Snow Patrol
A song for all of the people in Evie’s life she realizes are her family.
"Give Me Strength" by Ingrid Michaelson
A very sad, sweet, aching song about trying to find your home.
"Firelight" by Snow Patrol
A song for dear, comatose Vivian.

So like I said I loved the first book. I really did. The reason why I didn't like this one was that it was rather boring (I'm so sorry, Kiersten!). I hate to say this but it's just the way I felt. I felt like nothing really happened. Nothing too major anyway. And maybe it was just me but I felt that Evie was so freaking whiny in this book and if there's one thing I can't stand it's whiny heroines. The sad thing is, I liked her a lot in Paranormalcy. *sad face*
There were a few good points though that I think I should mention. One of these points are all the unique paranormal creatures. This book is full of them and that was probably the thing I liked best. I always love books that have several creatures that are either unique or unknown to me. So bonus points for that. Also, I love the faeries. I know they're kind of shady in this series but I can't help myself, I love faeries. And Reth, I love him too. Don't judge me.
The other characters weren't too eye-catching, however. I used to think Lend was adorable but now I'm rather "meh" about him. Jack, though, was pretty interesting. At first he seemed like this real happy-go-lucky guy but turns out he had a hidden agenda. I can't say I blame him, though. He went through pretty s***ty things with the faeries.
Supernaturally was not a good sequel to Paranormalcy in my eyes. It was pretty dull with a very whiny main character and nothing too major happening. I did read it super fast, however and it's easy to get into a book by Kiersten White. I really like her writing, even in this book. Will I read the final book? Probably but I'm not in any hurry to buy it right away.
I really like Evie. She's a great character. She's had to make some choices in this book and I was kind of glad to see her make some of the ones I wanted her to. I was a little scared when Lend and Evie started having problems but I was glad that it didn't last the whole book and it wasn't dragged out to the next to keep readers hanging on to something. I actually thought the fight and the resolution felt real. That both sides had concerns that overwhelmed them but they eventually were able to bring all that stuff to the table and air it out.
At first, I was a little sad that this wasn't a little more focused on the romance side, but after a bit, I was able to lose myself in the story and was able to forget about everything else. While I was able to figure out the mystery really fast, I was still hanging on to every word to figure out the why. Very good writing.
This is a very exciting series and I'm very excited to see more from Kiersten White.
I really enjoyed this book, but I liked Paranormalcy much more than this one. In Paranormalcy it was hard to figure out where the plot was heading, in this one I was able to figure out what was going on before Evie. And I kept thinking, why hasn't she figured it out already! It is right there in front of her nose! So when was finally revealed, I wasn't shocked. But, don't get me wrong! This book is great! I mean it starts out with the sentence, "Oh, bleep. I was going to die" and then heads right into the adventure. There is tons of funny laugh out loud moments just like Paranormalcy as well.
There is a new character in this one, Jack. And you get to learn a bit about the characters in the previous novel. You really get to understand Arianna better. And you get to learn about Evie's past and what exactly happened to her when she was lost as a child.
There is a part of the plot that is left hanging in the end. Throughout the novel it is subtly regarded in between all the things happening to Evie, so it is almost easy to forget that it was left and not answered at the end of the book. Hopefully that part is answered in the next book, Endlessly!
**I added a spoiler to my blog post of what was left hanging at the end of the book, in case you are interested carinasbookblog.blogspot[dot]com
