review

Kiersten White has been one of my favorite authors since the first book in this trilogy, Paranormalcy. Now, almost 2 years later, she still holds that title. In fact, I dare say Endlessly is the strongest installment in the trilogy. I'm torn between the first book and this one. 

From the get-go, Endlessly is packed with laughs. I was cracking up by the time I finished the first sentence. Imagine when I hit page 3. My stomach hurt from laughing. Safe to say the laughing died out eventually when the book took on a more somber tone.

Endlessly is the perfect concoction of humorous, heartwarming, sassy, and sensational. The emotions I felt while reading were roller-coaster-esque. I laughed, I cried at the end, and walked away with a warm heart and wet eyes. Evie is a heroine unlike any I have ever read before. She is witty in all situations and such a girl, but not to the point of annoyance. One thing that I love about the Paranormalcy series is that it's funny without being crude, crass, judgmental or obscene. The book doesn't contain a single curse word. Not one (unless you count her signature "Bleep"). Kiersten makes it unnoticeable, though. Her prose isn't anything special, but it definitely isn't distracting. Her humor is spot-on.

The end of Endlessly (oh, the irony!) packs quite the emotional punch. Prepare the kleenex and get ready for a perfect conclusion to a marvelous trilogy! I can't wait for more from Kiersten in the future. She is on top of my can't-be-missed list!

I think this book is my favorite of the trilogy. I maybe cried a little bit because even though the ending was perfect, it's extremely difficult to accept that there won't be anymore books! This is a series that I'm really sad to see end. But at least we have a bunch of other Kiersten White books to look forward to. :)
