Mind Games

Mind Games (Mind Games, #1)Goodreads Bit:    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.

My Thoughts:

-    This was a very different book for Kiersten White. I never would have thought she had something like this in her. I was impressed that she was able to shift gears and write something different.

-    I didn't feel like this was a whole book. I felt like this was the middle of a story. It needs a prequel and a sequel. There is a lot of story missing.

-    I couldn't figure out Fia. One minute she is a panicky mess and the next she is calm, in control, and knows exactly what to do.

-    I felt like Fia and Annie made up one person. They didn't seem like two different girls, but more like 2 halves.

-    We really didn't get to meet the "villian", and that bugged me. 

-    I had to make sure I read the chapter titles and descriptions, or I was really confused on who's perspective I was reading and what time frame.

-    I liked how the story jumped from the present to the past, but at the same time, it was kinda confusing, and I didn't like it.

-    I didn't like James at all. I thought his relationship with Fia was inappropriate.

-    To sum it all up, I was kinda confused, kinda weirded out, and I wanted more details/story.
