Let me just say: there are so many good interesting books coming out. Ahh, if only I have all the time and money in the world to read and buy them all.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine) is something ghostly — from the title to the blurb itself! “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Release date: September 21, 2010
Published by: Harper Collins
Sixteen-year-old Evie’s job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone–or something–starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she’s worked hard to help become productive members of society, she’s got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal.
Normal is so overrated.
Don’t you just love that last line of the blurb (that’s from Goodreads, by the way). This seemed very interesting, and there’s nothing like a book that combines all sorts of creatures in it instead of just focusing on one (or two). It seems very, very interesting. :)
I…am not too crazy about the cover, though. It gives off a dark vibe, which makes me think of an old type of novel, one that’s too scary that I totally skip it. I am assuming there’s some kind of humor in this novel, given the blurb, right? Or maybe I’m just assuming too much.
Or maybe, the girl on the cover is kind of giving me the creeps.
Nevertheless, this is going in my wish list. :)
