The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind
For Teagan Frost, sh*t just got real.
Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she's got telekinetic powers—a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she's normal for once.
But then a bod...more
"On second thoughts, throwing myself out the window of a skyscraper may not have been the best idea.
Not because I’m going to die or anything. I’ve totally got that under control.
It wasn’t smart because I had to bring Annie Cruz with me. And Annie, it turns out, is a screamer. Her fist ...more
That being said, I read it with an open mind and expected a bunch of snark to go with my telekinesis. The trick to this kind of genre book is not to expect anything outright original but think of it as a great way of telling a fun story.
And for the most part, it is. It's not about science. It's about running a snarky mystery novel with all the heisty action, running, fighting, and reveals that keep our MC alive. You know, ...more
What an amazing title for a book. It certainly grabbed my attention, and contained within is a fast paced story involving secret government agents, underground warfare and a funny telekinetic protagonist that doesn’t take herself too seriously. It’s totally and utterly bonkers.
Teagan is a great character, and one I easily found likeable and approachable. She’s just your average woman with super powers, forced to work with the gove ...more
The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind is quite the title, isn't it? It certainly drew me in! I had just.. ALL THE THOUGHTS with regards to this before starting. Why is it bleeped?! What type of shit can this person move? The blurb! X-MEN! Superheroes! Is it going to be insanely bonkers?! I hope so! I need something fun ...more
A literary tour de force this was not (but I mean, you’ve probably gathered that from the title already), but still most definitely a ton of fun (again, the title). The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with her Mind by Jackson Ford is the perfect book to read for pure irreverent and action-packed escapism.
Meet Teagan Frost, a young woman who possesses incredible psychokinetic powers, something that the government is all too will ...more
If you love watching super hero or action movies, this book is for you.
From Teagan’s special powers, to the top secret group she is hanging out with doing black ops for the government – all of it was right up my alley. It was exactly what I wanted out of this story, an easy and entertaining ...more
Can I just say that the title of the book is fucking amazing!
Sometimes you just want to kick back, relax, turn off from the world and enjoy a book. You want to read a book that is full of attitude, that is bold, brash and loud. A book that is pure and unadulterated fun and that is what The Girl Who Could Move Sh#t With Her Mind is. It is a book that is barmy, bonkers and brilliant.
The female main character, whom the story is told through, is a bitter sarcastic, and rel ...more
Meet Teagan. She really can move sh** with just her mind but it doesn’t make her invincible and she’s all caught up in shadowy government affairs and a battle with her own past….
This is a fast moving, high octane thrill ride interspersed with calmer moments as we learn more about what has lead Teagan to this point. Jackson Ford creates an eclectic and engaging cast with an intriguing group dynamic that absorbs you into their quirky ...more
Now, I wasn’t sure at first. It started out like a heist novel and those aren’t my thing. But soon enough, it turned into so much more. And props to the author: every time I had a little thing that bugged me, the author addressed it and made everything okay.
The characters are awesome – even one who completely shocked and disappointed me. The author sprinkles ...more
I'm going to be honest with this - the title and cover for this book totally reeled me in. Luckily for me, the story behind it totally lived up to the hype I'd built up for it in my head. Anyway, the story is totally nuts but in the best ways. It's fast-paced, off-the-wall, action-packed, and a ton of fun.
Seriously, you won't get bored with Jackson Ford's debut novel (well, Ford is actually the pseudonym of a bestselling sci-fi ...more
Teagan Frost has telekinetic ability—she can move shit with her mind. Too bad for her that this ability has caused more problems in her life than opportunities. Right now she’s living in Los Angeles, using her abilities by working in a covert governm ...more
The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind is a new urban fantasy series by Jackson Ford. There has been quite a buzz surrounding this book lately, and with a title as awesome and as catchy as that, who wouldn’t be intrigued? I also saw that the book had been likened to that of the X-Men series, and as I’m a fan of s ...more
So I've never watched Alias so I cannot say much about that comparison but this definitely reminded me of a mash up of several shows but Scorpion and X-Men definitely stand out. This was quite a fast paced and a bit chaotic/mind boggling book. There wasn't much time to process what happened because something else would happen immediately after. I d ...more
The story follows Teagan Frost who has no choice but to work for a shady government organization due to her psychokinesis in exchange for freedom on a leash. Well a simple job goes bad, then really bad when a guy is murdered, and then Teagan gets t ...more
The author-provided bio states that he has a dozen best-sellers under his (assuming actual male identity) belt, but this is first book by Jacks ...more

You think you’re having a bad day at work?

Tegan works for the Government, who send her on secret missions, simply because she is able to do things that other people can’t.
But all in all Tegan is a young girl, she thinks her abilities are cool, but that’s really about it, she wants to be able to drink beer and have a good time, she really isn’t that bothered about working for the Government, but ...more
The first chapter is exciting and full of action, using an interesting premise to underpin both the story and its main character. However, beyond that the next several chapter were little more then information dumps.
It's a huge shame, in my view, that an exciting premise was squandered for so much irrelevant details. I seemed like it needed a damn good edit. The information dumping about each character was not subtle and often took up much of any chapter ...more
This is sloppy work and it’s just an insult to the reader.
