Wishlist Wednesday #32

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wish-list for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wish-list and onto our wonderful shelves.





Mind Games by Kiersten White
Mind Games, #1
Hardcover, 256 pages
Published February 19th 2013 by HarperTeen
Goodreads|Amazon

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.

This book is also known as Sister Assassin. This is a perfect example of how covers can attract someone. I had only ever seen the UK cover of this book and didn’t actually realize it was the same book until someone on another blog had mentioned it. I am not a fan of the UK cover but I really like the US edition.  It seems to be a pretty popular book considering it is a new release. It has a decent rating on Goodreads too. I hope to get my hands on it soon.

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?

  7. I read this a while back and I actually think the UK title is a poor choice. The US one is much better. :) This didn't entirely work for me, I have to admit, but I know several people enjoyed it. I hope you like it, too!

  9. This book makes me think a little of Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro using people for specific powers or organs in that case. Weird but interesting to read about. Scary on a different level also!
