Candy for my Head

Since I've been trying to not eat candy, and I had a stressful week a couple of weeks back, I decided I'd read it instead. At the library I came out with an armload of YA deliciousness.

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White was a fun read. Evie, a 16 year old girl, has no memories before being picked up by an agency at age 3. She wants to live a normal life, but she can see through people, er, paranormal beings, to their true selves. For instance, she can see through a vampire's attractive outer shell into its icky, withered soul. This makes her valuable for tracking down paranormals and tagging them. Soon she meets a handsome stranger named Lend who has a watery soul, and together they have to stop the rogue killing of paranormals by a dangerous fiery monster--who looks just like Evie. Paranormalcy isn't my usual reading material, as I pretty much avoid vampire and werewolf books, but I knew someone who knew the author, and decided to pick it up. It was a light, fun way to pass the day. Nothing gross, nothing otherwise offensive, just a good story. Candy.
