This was a YA paranormal story which led on from book 1.

Cameron was an okay character and I felt quite sorry for her when it seemed like she didn’t know who to trust.

The storyline in this was about Cameron going on the run again as she slowly got her memories back, and not knowing whether she should be trusting the SPI, or Aaron, or her father, or someone else entirely. We did get quite a lot of twists thrown at us, with regards to who she should be trusting, but unfortunately the story still d

Ever watch a movie you find tons of faults with yet watch to the end because there was enough interesting plot you want to find out what happens? That’s the way I feel about this series.

This is the second of a three book series which initially I didn’t know was geared for YA. As in the first book, The Mind Readers, the author uses the same trite phrases so often you want to scream “Get a thesaurus would you please!”( He raked his hands through his hair. My heart was about to slam through my che

So, I'm going into my review assuming the person reading it has read the first book, so I'm not spoiling it for them. If you haven't read it, then avert your eyes and go read the first book in the series so this one actually makes sense.

Things I liked:

1. Tara and Nora. They were essentially kick butt girls who could keep a secret or let you in on things you needed to know when you needed to know them. As far as I'm concerned, these two characters provided the most answers to the bazilli

I liked this book, but I actually preferred the first book in the series. My main issue with the story is that the first three-quarters of The Mind Thieves felt very much like a repeat of The Mind Readers. Once again, Cameron finds herself among strangers who claim to be helping her but who she's not sure she can trust. Once again, she's struggling to sort out her feelings for the man who "saved" her. The new group that she is stuck with feels VERY much like the first group who held her. Even th ...more

I enjoyed the first book and thought the story was kind of cool and different. I wasn't too thrilled to find that the plot in this book was so similar to the first book, in my opinion. Overall, I did enjoy the book but I gave this follow up two stars because I felt like there was ENTIRELY TOO MUCH recapping of the previous book. Not only was there too much recapping of the previous book, but I don't need something that I read literally 3 to 5 pages ago repeated to me in detail. I found my self s ...more

The writing style for this was not great. Neither was the plot, or the character development. But I honestly just really loved the premise too much to not continue.

Just finished book 1 and can't wait for The Mind Thieves to be released!
This review doesn't contain spoilers for the first two books in the series.

After The Mind Readers, I was really excited to read the sequel. And I have to say, The Mind Thieves didn't disappoint.

There is something about this series that makes me go crazy because even after two books, I still don't know who the bad guy is. In The Mind Thieves we see that both sides aren't bad per se, just the way they're doing what they think is right is sometimes anything but good. I really love how the series

Even better than the first book, The Mind Thieves really touched me.

A world is uncovered to not be at all as it seems (view spoiler) Cam's search for the truth is definitely step-by-step, and keeps the suspense going all the way through. There are so many surprises to unfold, and the unpredictability was perhaps one of the many things that got to me.

Moreover, I loved how rigid Cam is in her belief in Lewi

I think I might've have to pause a little bit before I carry on with this series. You can only take in so much before you get a little bit annoyed at the 'plot twists'. Urgh truth be told I'm annoyed at how this ended.

Okay yeah it is a little bit repetitive of the first book and again, the main character is a bit needy (wouldn't expect her to change over one book) but she is just so damn naïve it really gets on my nerves.

I mean, I finished the book so that's something, right?

I really enjoyed this book but it actually ended at the climax. ARGGGGHHHHH!!!! I'm giving it three stars for such a frustrating ending. The last and third book is no where to be seen.

I wanted so badly to love this series, but it pretty much seems impossible now.

The first book was OK, the second one... not really.

I mean, flashbacks are practically copied parts of the previous book. I don't mind them that much, but I feel like copying two sentences would be enough, not an entire page.

The writing style remained the same, and by that I mean the writer used the same descriptions for completely different events, something that's definitely not very professional.

The story itself is

Another great book in the Mind Reader series. This book was a little faster passed than the first one. In this book Cameron starts to learn about her past but the real questions is, it that what is the real truth and who can she trust? The only thing I did not like about it was all the flash backs. But then again it does add to what had happened in book one and shows a deeper reasoning to her feelings. This book also shows me that you never know who you can truely trust. This book has a lot of t ...more

The main character in this wasn't awful, but she annoyed me quite a few times, so I didn't love her.

It took me a while to get into this one. It did get a bit better, but there was still quite a lot of it that bored me. Some parts seemed very repetitive for me, (view spoiler) and there were a few parts that seemed a bit silly too.

Overall, Not awful, but not a very e

Cameron, the mind reader is a freak and she believed that there is no one of her type until she meets other mind-readers.
She come to know of her powers but also come to know that whatever was told to her was a lie and she struggles to get fit into the present, which was kept hidden from her since long.
Again she is at brink where she trusts no-one but her on instincts. All seems to exploit her for her powers.

There was too much back and forth "who do you trust" and then "who doesn't remember what" going on in this book for me. I'll still read the third, just to see how it all turns out but this was a letdown from the first.

better than the 1st book... so good! I love how you feel like you are Cameron when you read this, you can feel everything she feels, her frustration, her excitement... love it! I hope the 3rd book is out soon!

I loved the first book. this book I enjoyed but not as much. I started getting annoyed with how often she gets into arguments to find out facts only for the argument to blow up and not help move along info... But it was still a very enjoyable read and looked forward to reading the third book!

Even worse. I cannot remember a more annoying and STUPID protagonist. But I had to be a hero and try to finish the series...I have completionist impulses, what can I say?

What would you do if someone told you that your past and everything you believed was a lie?

I read the original book in this series a long time ago and marked this one to read in the future. I guess I didn't realize exactly how far in the future I would be trying to dive right in. Lucky for me, the main character doesn't remember anything either!

We join Cameron after her memory has been erased. She's got lots of magical mind powers, but no recollection of the life she lives as recent as a few mon

although I definitely still have my reservations about the writing style and Cameron's obsession with Lewis, (who is so unimportant to me, I could remember his name until she remembered it even though I only read the first book last week) this book was better than the first one for sure.
As I thought at the end of the first book, the plot is so promising that even if the writing is painful at times, it's worth it to me to finish the story.
The "surprise" ending was definitely something I expec

Just, no.

I was so excited to read this series literally for the sole reason that mind reading seems so cool and the first line of the first book, "The man across from me was thinking about killing his wife", (or something to that effect) intrigued me from the get-go. Now, after having read books 1-3 and the ending novella, I have never been more annoyed or frustrated not only in a story line but also in a writer's incompetence for her own story.
