Perfect Lies (Book 2 in the Mind Games series!)
Author: Kiersten White (website | twitter)

Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected publication date: February 18th 2014

Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.

The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.

But Annie’s visions of the future can’t show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia’s first love, Fia knows he’s hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other – but that may not be enough to save them.

I really enjoyed the first Mind Games book – chock-full of kick-ass heroines, sisterhood, and heart-pounding action. Fia was really well-drawn as a character, but I’m hoping for a bit more of Annie in this book. I’m also really looking forward to seeing how the sisters survive in a place that’s completely unfamiliar and new, with a common enemy. 
This is an interesting series because I don’t feel like it’s the most beautiful writing or anything – you won’t be basking in words. Instead, you’ll be turning pages like crazy to get to the end – and sometimes, that’s exactly what you need. I can’t wait to do that again with Perfect Lies. 
Have you read Mind Games? Are you interested in reading Perfect Lies? How do you feel about action-y writing versus beautiful writing in your books? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I was super excited about Mind Games right before it came out but then I got carried away and I never got to read it. This one sounds great but without having read book one I can't say I'm waiting for it just yet. I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out.
    Come check out my WOW post.

  2. I read Mind Games when it first came out and liked it okay. It somehow didn't grip me like I hoped it would, but I can't quite put my finger on the reason. I'll read Perfect Lies just the same as I like the concept quite well.

    Have a look at my WoW choice at BookVenturers if you like.
