I believe this was the first book where the ending made me cry. This author did a wonderful job at making the reader understand what was happening and what the characters felt like. This was probably overall the best book that I have ever read and the sequel absolutly looks amazing. I loved the way this book had twists and turns and made you doubt everyone except the supposed bad guy. You feel compassion in the end when everything is gone for Cameron and when Luis doesnt return. I hope that she gets everything back and you will understand more of what I mean after reading the end of the book. But this is for sure a book worth reading!!!

Who needs a drink??????

Book was not so bad...but you'll be drunk by chapter 5 if you take a shot every time her heart "beats wildly out of her chest", and in a coma by the end!

    Alright

    It's not that great. Not gonna lie. There is no humor and it's basically Cameron always being afraid. It's really just too drawn out. I mean it takes FOREVER to get to the decent stuff and even then you're still waiting for something to happen. This book left me burnt out. I need something that will make me laugh or cry. Or at least crack a smile or a grimace. Something where I at least feel for the characters. This book did nothing for me.

    Young YA

    The Mind Readers falls on the younger side of the young adult sliding scale and would lean more towards the teen category. It's a clean read with sweet first kisses and young crushes. I would say, young love, but the love realized in this book comes too fast to be anything more than a crush even though the characters express it as much more. The problem with the story is the redundancy of observations, thoughts, descriptions, use of words by both the character and author. Repetition has its place when used correctly, but in this case it dumbs the text and suggests either the reader won't get it the first time, or that the author simply forgot they wrote it already. The use of 'gorgeous' is so over used that I stopped believing it. The setting is cliche and could work if the thematic depth were improved, but unfortunately it skims along making use of what has already been written many times. The final scenes (which are repetitive) are awkward in nature and left me wondering if the strange interruption was to lengthen the book because suspense wasn't really added. The text was too immature to earn a higher rating. Writing for a younger audience can be tricky, but an author should never underestimate the reader's ability to digest depth. Too candy coated and cliche for this reader, but others might find it entertaining.
