Smashwords book reviews by Kathryn

  • The Mind Readers, Book 1 on Dec. 30, 2010

    The first thing that I noticed about this book was that it was different from most YA books. Now I know that's vague, but I have my reasons for thinking it. One thing that made it different was the fact that the story was about Cameron and her abilities and it stayed on that topic. In the beginning of the book there was a murder, but the book didn't revolve around the murder. It was a way to show Cameron's ability which led to us meeting Lewis. This was different because usually in YA an event that happens early on in the book is what the entire book revolves around, like solving a murder, but it was used to build characters in The Mind Readers. I also found the romance between Cam and Lewis realistic. I think that they "fell in love" a bit quickly but it was what came after that that was realistic. After they actually went on a date and hung out Cameron saw they were actually different. *Slight Spoiler* And I was pleased to see she was strong enough to not change her beliefs of right and wrong to be with him. Overall this was a very good book. It was different from many paranormal YA books and put a new twist on mind readers. It also managed to be realistic in the areas of everyday life. The ending was, in my opinion, a cliff hanger, and I definitely hope there's a sequel.
