I finished reading Mind Games by Kiersten White early this morning for an Around the World ARC Tour.
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.
Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.
In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.
I absolutely ADORE the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White so I was sooo excited when I got to read this one! And while I enjoyed it, I definitely love the Paranormalcy series more.
Mind Games started off confusing for me. I couldn't figure out what was happening. Some chapters were flashbacks and some were current day. Unfortunately, I don't really like feeling confused.
That being said, I really liked the characters. A lot of Fia's thoughts are in parentheses and at first that got on my nerves but then it just became part of her personality. I liked that she had to be so tough but she was so protective of her sister and really just wanted to be loved. I also liked Annie. She just wanted to feel normal for once, what with her disability and her special abilities. And James. A guy who is so wrong yet so right. I liked him right away. His heart is in the right place even if his actions aren't always.
I think this book was too short (only 200-something pages). I think if maybe the school had been explained more then I wouldn't have had such a hard time figuring things out. That being said, I will definitely be picking up the next book in this series!
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
Mind Games will be released on February 19, 2013.
