Paranormalcy: In the Wild.... and Taking Over My Apartment!

It's FINALLY here! Release day for Kiersten White's stunning debut Paranormalcy! To celebrate, Kiersten is hosting a contest on her blog for some fantastic prizes! All you have to do is take a picture of how you and Paranormalcy hang out.

I used my lunch break today to go to the bookstore... Borders didn't have it stocked, but I knew B&N was slated to have a pretty awesome pink display. So... I high tailed it over there... only for the display not to be out! Well. We can't have that! I asked the poor, innocent worker trying to shelf books in a nearby area if they had it. After repeating the book name three times, spelling it twice, and stressing the author's name is Kiersten and not Kristen... he asks if I looked in the teen section (umm... yes...). So.. he looks. Looks some more. Checks his system again (they ordered 6), and finally... comes back... with the display!

The picture isn't as awesome as I wanted.... but I was already ten mins late getting back to work, and I still had to, you know, drive back... so I snapped my pic, bought the book, and fought traffic back to work. With Paranormalcy in hand! Things were great. We chatted about how nice it was to not be stuck in a box anymore... but then I had to go back to work. And left Paranormalcy in my car, for 4 1/2 hours. I know, I know. Cars heat up fast. And it was 98 out today. BUT. I park in a garage area so it wasn't as hot. And I left another book for company. But I guess Paranormalcy was upset. Because when I got home, I went to change and make dinner... and came back to find this:

Paranormalcy bagged and tagged some of the other paranormals in my books! Also... I always knew there was something fishy about Toby, but this proves it. She bagged and tagged him too.

And that... is my entry into Kiersten's contest... and a little more promotion for this awesome book. Now... what are you waiting on? Go buy it! It's out NOW!

(Note: No paranormal books, well paid and Beggin Strip bribed Toby dogs, or duffel bags were harmed in the making of this contest entry and photo.)


  1. I really like the hot pink display :P

  2. I see "Need" tucked away! It's my current read! Fantastic post.

  3. I love this post Kari! Sounds like Toby is deciding to head out on his own... with Paranormalcy in the lead of course! ;)

  4. hahaha your disclaimer kills me :)

    I looked everywhere at B&N for Paranormalcy today, and it wasn't there :( I asked and they said they didn't have it in. I'm dying.

  5. Waiting on my copy to arrive via the post. Love your entry. Good luck.

  6. Even your little doggy looks extremely pleased. It's not out in the UK yet (well, perhaps we can get a copy but it's ridiculously expensive) but do have fun with it!

  7. Such an extremely exciting week of YA releases! I'm really excited about Paranormalcy.
