Mind Games by Kiersten White Book Review

Mind Games (Mind Games, #1)
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.

Mind Games was such an awesome thriller! It had an amazingly unique premise and characters. It’s one of my new favorites, and I’m really looking forward to the next book.

I started this book, only intending to read the first few chapters. I read this whole book non-stop; I couldn’t put it down! It told an incredible story. Mind Games follows two sisters, Fia and Annie. It alternated point-of-views between them. They each have abilities and have to use them in different ways. I loved both point-of-views, but I found Fia’s the most captivating. She was such an angry person, and had had to deal with so much heartbreak her whole life. I loved how fiercely protective she was of Annie. I liked Annie, I really did, but I felt she was too naive, and  I couldn't help but blame her at times for how certain things turned out.

The chapters alternated point-of-views, with chapters switching between the past and the present. That allowed you to understand the background of the two sisters. There were two guys, and I couldn’t help but love both of them. The two guys were completely opposites, one was really kind and nice, while the other had seen so much and had so much anger. With flashbacks revealing a lot of the story, it was amazing to see how much everything in her life had pretty much negatively affected Fia. Annie is blind, so the way that she interconnected with the different events in Fia's life was amazing. Also, there were so many lines throughout the entire book that completely blew me away. 

The writing was fabulous and I never wanted to stop reading. I think this is equally amazing, if not better than Kiersten White’s Paranormalcy series. I am so eager to read the next book in the series, already. This book will keep you up reading. It’s hard to write a review for this, without spoiling anything or gushing the entire time, but all in all it was an amazing book that I’d recommend to almost anyone! I’d give it 5 out of 5 flowers.

  1. I want this so bad! Awesome review :) I like when a character completely draws you in. And I must say that I've only read the first book, Paranormalcy, and have yet start the other two books in the series!
