Kiersten White is Gonna Play Mind Games with You

Filed under: Book Reviews, Wolf Pack, Wolfson Literary, YA Books, Young Adult (YA)

Get out your TBR list because MIND GAMES by my Wolf Pack sistah Kiersten White needs to be on it!

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 the first in a new series, is out in February, 2013.
An Egyptian mythology based standalone, The Chaos of Stars, follows in fall 2013, with the sequel to Mind Games in February, 2014.
MIND GAMES is available for pre-order here:

*Barnes & Noble

Kimberly’s Review:

I’ve erased this review like ten times because I’m having trouble. When I say that MIND GAMES is not the Paranormalcy Trilogy, I find myself stuck in an endless loop because I loved the Paranormalcy Trilogy, so I don’t want you to think for a minute that this is better, because it isn’t better–but yet–its better. *sheesh* The most accurate thing I can say is that Kiersten White has only begun to play mind games with her readers. It is evident by this unique, exciting and riveting book that White has just proven she’s not a one trick pony. She’s tiny like a pony–but she has lots of tricks and I love them. I love them so much, I want the sequel to this book NOW! So much so, I’m going to start harassing my agent to automatically put me on the top of the ARC list for MIND GAMES #2. Make a list. Check it twice. I’d better be on it. I know you hate me because it isn’t February yet, and you’re justified, but guess what–I’m not even a little bit sorry, because yeah, it was that good. LOL!


Kiersten White is the NYT bestselling author of the Paranormalcy trilogy. She has one tall husband and two small children and lives near the ocean, where her life is perfectly normal. Visit her at www.kierstenwhite.com.

Can’t wait for you guys to read it. Have there been any of you favorite authors who have written a successful book or series that you’ve loved and then gone on to do something completely different? Was it as good? Did it not resonate with you? Maybe it was better? I’m looking forward to checking out the CASUAL VACANCY by JK Rowlings–it’s on my night stand. Anyone else read it yet? What do you thin about authors who surprise you?

  1. MIND GAMES looks sooooo good!!! I loved the Paranormalcy series as well. I found it fun and bubbly, despite the “bad” characters in the book. I’m hoping Mind Games is a little different (like, more serious and action-ish?). Thanks for the post! It seems like I will enjoy this book. And look at you! Got your copy of your book! lol congrats 🙂

    • You’re gonna love MIND GAMES and yeah…holding your book…a little corner of amazing. <3
