Book of the Week is Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

I know I'm behind on this band wagon because most of you have already read it but I absolutely loved this book. So much, in fact, I just bought Supernaturally. 

Here are some of my favorite lines from the book:

Reaching out in a panic, I almost knocked my lamp over as I switched it on. Reth was sitting on the end of my bed. 
"Hello," he said, his voice and smile pleasant. 
"You can't touch me!" I sat up and pulled the covers over myself.
"Yes, about that. You need to negate the command."

My eyes flew open in panic- the whole world was shaking. Lend laughed, still jumping on the end of the bed. I grabbed my pillow and threw it at him. He caught it and sat cross-legged on the bed, facing me. 
"Lazy," he said. 
I sat up, narrowing my eyes. "Hey, this is the first vacation I've had since I was eight. Give me a break."
"Fine. But school was boring without you there. No one was freaking out over the lockers or anything."
"They're all fools."

He looked down at the bedspread. "I was wondering if you wanted to hang out with some people tonight? A bunch of my friends are going to go out for pizza."
I sat up even straighter. "Oh my gosh, like a real date? With real teenagers?"
"I'm afraid so."
I threw myself across the bed and wrapped my arms around his neck. "It's like a dream come true!"
He put his arms around my back. "You're really easy to keep happy, you know that?"
"But oh no!" I pulled back so I could look at him; he didn't move his arms. "You're grounded! Are you gonna climb out the window and steal a car?"
"Yes, because I'm insane and this is one of your television shows. I already asked my dad. He said it was okay."
"Gosh, harsh disciplinarian, huh?"

"Oh, go away," I snapped, turning to look at Reth, who had made himself comfortable in a chair next to my bed. 
He glared at me. "I'm very disappointed in you, Evelyn. After all that time, everything I gave you. Very disappointed indeed."

There are so many other parts I loved. But these were some of my favorites. I would love to know some of your favorite parts of this book. Leave a comment and let us know!
