Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

ParanormalcyEvie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal. (courtesy of Amazon)

I heard nothing but awesome buzz about this book, so I had to grab it, the buzz was definitely right on. Kiersten White is taking on the Young Adult with a strong force.

Policing the paranormals seems like such the right thing for our leading girl Evie, but she starts to doubt her world when she meets her handsome hunk, Lend, or is he a chunky old man, or maybe a business class woman? All of the above, thankfully Evie can see straight through it, through everyone. So fresh! I love how Evie discovers the world she’s had around her and all her misconceptions are brought out. I thought that this made the book, as Evie is learning the world, you’re already in it, and definitely captivated. And then, there is her beau, oh Lend, so awesome and perfect.

Well done Ms. White. The chemistry gives off just the right amount of romance between the two. Of course, there’s always Reth, faerie’s at their best, or worst. Just to keep the mix interesting, White gives Evie just another special talent. And this talent is all too tempting.  Good thing she has Lend to keep her calm. 

I enjoyed this first in the series and luckily the second just came out, so I get another taste and I didn't have to wait as long. LOL
