Me on Waiting on Wednesday (85)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Mind Games
Author: Kiersten White
Release Date: February 19, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

From Goodreads:

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.

Oh, Kiersten. I adore her books. I remember reading Paranormalcy right before I started book blogging seriously, so both this book and finishing Endlessly the other day make me feel like she's opening a new chapter. Feels a little nostalgic, sort of. ;)

And this sounds so good. I think I want YA where the stakes are massive but not comically massive while trying to be a thriller/mystery. I need to feel that the stakes are high as opposed to reading about it in a book. Does that make sense? Maybe if I say I need to feel all weird and tense and uncomfortable for a thriller to work for me (because that's how I felt when reading Amy Kathleen Ryan's YA sci-fi thriller Glow).


  1. I love Kiersten's books as well. I think Mind Games sounds awesome, and I love the cover! I'm really excited to read this.

  2. Mind Games does sound awesome. I haven't read any of Kiersten's books, but this one will be my first.

    I agree, Glow by Kathleen Ryan was one of those books that made you be on edge which I love.

    Great choice!

  3. OMG YES! I cannot wait for this one! Everything about it sounds amazing. Great pick! :)
