    One thought on “The Mind Readers”

    1. This is one of the more polished and well-written indie YAs I've read. The Mind Readers is a fast-paced, entertaining read with a likable heroine in Cameron Winters, who knows the most intimate and frightening secrets of those around her. The book moves along at a brisk pace with a plot concerning a murder mystery, a training facility for kids with supernatural powers, and the investigative society who is out to stop them. Some of the secondary characters could have been fleshed out a little mor [...]

    2. i really wanted to like this book, i really did. the story seemed very interesting right from te start, with all this x-men-ish supernatural stuff going on. but then Cam (that's the main character - she doesn't deserve to be called heroine) had to up and ruin EVERYTHING. any possible delight from reading. how she did that? well, let's see. 1 - every decision she made was stupid and immature, including telling her equally stupid "friend" she could read minds, and then leaving her grandma, the onl [...]

    3. Downloaded for free from This was a YA paranormal story about a girl who could read minds.Cameron was an okay character and I appreciated why she didn’t want to sit back and do nothing when people’s lives were in danger.The storyline in this was about Cameron being able to read minds, and then being approached by a new boy at school who seemed to have the same ability. The story went on from there, but it seemed like Cameron’s crush on Lewis was centre-stage a lot of the time, and the book [...]

    4. "II like him.It was more than like. We were connected in a way no one else could possibly understand.""I was shocked by his sudden touch, even more surprised when he leaned forward and pressed his lips to my forehead. Was it a brotherly kiss or something more? My heart slammed widely in my chest as I prayed it was something more."Omg, I can't. I can't i can't i can't!!! This book made me want to pull my hair out. I'm sorry, I do not want to come off rude to the author or to anyone who enjoyed th [...]

    5. Initially I was not aware it was a YA novel when I downloaded this to read free to my Kindle. As I read, I discovered elements that indicated that was the case. Even so, I found this to be an enjoyable read. I needed to overlook some writing elements that could have used some improvement. Trite and constant repetitive usage of phrases like “raking hands through hair” & “I never felt this way before” coupled with multiple examples of reminding the readers of certain facts (like Aaron [...]

    6. Will be posted on the blog on 3/10/11.In a Sentence: The Mind Readers started out as a mediocre YA mystery but steadily improved to a page-turning thriller culminating in one heck of an ending. My ThoughtsFor those of you who like to be immediately sucked into a story, The Mind Readers just might be the book for you. The action starts right off the bat, as you can probably tell by reading the first sentence (included above). However, the thing that instantly drew me into the story wasn’t just [...]

    7. This review is short, to the point, and will have a spoiler.I picked this book up a while back because it was available for free. On one hand I thought the world the characters live in -with the two sides and fighting blah blah blah- was interesting. I kind of liked Cameron at first.but then the relationship happened. At first it was ok, but later on. I wanted to kill her. (view spoiler)[When a guy says he made you love him so he can use you -even if he later claims to care for you and that afte [...]

    8. I love my Kindle. I do, I love it like I love few other inanimate objects. When I got my Kindle, I downloaded a ridiculous amount of books onto it. Like, all the books that were free or one dollar or whatever. I quickly put so many books on there that I realized that I never had any hope of reading all of them. So I organized that bitch to at least make the task feel surmountable. Then I got into Netgalley and ARCs and let's just not talk about the status of my Kindle, okay?This was one of the f [...]

    9. Warning: This book is definitely addictive!My Rating: 5 out of 5My Cover Thoughts: The cover is absolutely gorgeous! On the front it draws you in because you can see a girl in a black dress at the beach flying in the air. Her hair is blowing in the wind of the sea like a storm is coming. Then in the sky there are flowers and symbols floating around. The cover is also my favorite color Sky Blue (just like someone’s eye color in the book)My Thoughts/Review: When I first started reading this book [...]

    10. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE REVIEWS AT READING, EATING AND DREAMING I WAS BLAIR WALDORFIf you would have asked for my opinion of this novel while I was reading it, I would have told you that I liked it. If you were to ask me that same question right now, now that I have finished reading this novel, I would tell you that I absolutely loved it!!! The conclusion switched my opinion from like to love; it was a mind-blowing cliffhanger that left so many options open for the sequel. I can’t wait to get [...]

    11. ** 2.5 Stars***Being able to read minds, do you think could be a blessing or a curse ?The plot for this book is really interesting, I mean how many times have you wished you could read somebody's mind? but sadly I have to say that I really struggled to finish reading it, it just wasn't my thing.Cameron is a teenager who's' only living relative is her grandmother, they live as if they are always hiding and trying to go through life unnoticed. They've been in a small town in Maine for almost a yea [...]

    12. This book really made my brain hurt - for a number of reasons. But like a demented, crazy person who can't think straight, I can't wait for more. I LOVED the concept, and I thought the book had a kick-butt end. Having said that, the book can't be more infuriating to read. The book was very chaotic, and basically everything jumped all over the place.Before I begin, I want to say I don't think Brighton gave me a chance to like Lewis. I mean, he had his moments, but he never made me swoon. It felt [...]

    13. Where have I been?? I've seen this book a few times here and there. It was published in 2010, but I just never dove in for some reason. I wish I had!I loved this book. I stayed up late and read it on my phone Kindle app every chance I got in the car while hubby drove until I was done. Even though it's usually not the type I like, because the guy turns out to be a 'jerk'. Wellt really. :) I usually am all about the true love. But it's was a conundrum. I felt for this book like I felt for Reckless [...]

    14. 4 UNEXPECTED, MIND BENDING STARS Wow, these freebie amazon reads are really impressive. This story was so much better than I’d expected. This crazy sci-fi-action-thriller of a book did have some editing issues, but not enough to hinder the flow. I had no problems reading this in one setting, give or take a few cig breaks. In sum, I had some issues with Cameron, as she was so insecure and needy at times, but I guess I can’t really blame her, especially with how she was brought up – thinking [...]

    15. I had actually been looking forward to reading a book about mind-reading (if you know any good ones, let me know!) but sadly I was disappointed.The writing style wasn't descriptive enough for me to immerse myself in the story, and the main character just felt kind of annoying.It is a good idea though, I just wish it was executed better.

    16. When I was in the fourth grade my teacher posed a very interesting question. “Think about this long and hard” she said to us while scribbling the question across the chalkboard. “Because…no matter your answer, there are always repercussions.”The question was: “If you could have ANY super-power, what would it be and why?”Not such difficult a question right? Wrong. See, the tricky part comes in the second part of her statement, not necessarily the question itself. “There are always [...]

    17. Colour me suprised, I actually enjoyed this one.My track record with self-published books isn't the best, I can list the ones I actually enjoyed reading with a peace sign (The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back, which I adored and Armed & Fabulous, which was a fun read). After some really annoying waste-of-time-reads, I gave up hope that I'd find another read in the self-published area that I'll enjoy as much as The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back and Armed & Fabulous. I don't know what made me d [...]

    18. 3 Stars I originally planned to give this book two stars because it started to annoy half way through. The beginning was great and it drew in but after that it went downhill pretty fast. The characters annoyed so much, I dislike the romance and the actions in this were so boring. The ending was the only thing that made me gave it 3 stars. Cameron can read minds her whole life. She thinks she is a freak and her grandmother strongly advises her not to use her abilities for the "greater good". It i [...]

    19. Rating: 1/5***Minor spoilers***Cameron has always been able to read minds. Whenever she does anything, the thoughts from around her just seep in, and she can't do much about it. She knows things that she didn't want to, but she also knows how to make everyone like her, since she knows what they want from her. She lives with her grandma who is also a mind reader, but refuses to tell her much about it, or about their history. When a new student at school named Lewis shows up and it turns out that [...]

    20. Even though I enjoyed the book, I can't say I loved it.Mind Readers focusses on 17 year old Cameron who can, you guessed it, read minds.I enjoyed Cameron, for the most part. At the beginning of the book, she is quiet, desperate to blend in, shying away from her ability. She meets Lewis and immediately he is all she can think about. But Lewis turns the safe world her grandma has created for them, upside down. As the book progresses she starts showing her inner strength and strong morals, but many [...]

    21. OH MY GOSH!!!!!! For 2 or 3 months, I thought The Last Song was the best novel out there. I have been proven wrong! Lori Brighton's YA novel was filled with action, emotional pains, characters that I wanted to hurt -- physically. Once I got closer to the climax, I was practically yelling at the charries for doing stupid . stuff :). The story's somewhat-hero, the one I yelled at the most, describes Cameron as a "sitting duck" while trying to persuade her into going back with him to Aaron's hosue [...]

    22. This is mostly a rant about the hero. But the book is goodI feel conflicted about his. I really liked it. It was really an interesting book. Cameron was alright. She had her moment where she really annoyed me. Lewis, what can I say about him? At first I was unsure, then intrigued, but I never fully warmed up to him. There was always something off about him and by the end I was right. Hes the freaking hero who I thought was a selfish jerk. And at the end when he never once, not one freaking time, [...]

    23. I saw this book was free on kindle and HAD to get it. Thankfully, I was not disappointed. With an intriguing plot line, interesting characters, and pieces from at least 10 different genres this book has something for everyone! The characters can easily be identified with (not the mindreading aspect) and showcase a wide array of qualities typical of the character's age. What I especially like about this book is the lack of entirely happy ending and it's use of the loved literary technique, the cl [...]

    24. Wow!!! This book is amazingI am still realing from Tyne ending This book held me in its grasp with the very first word!!! I am definitely going to be reading the next in the series!!!I am still not sure who I trustough I do love the character of Camerond would love to have her ability.cially since I am teacherI would love to know what my students are thinkingor would I ??? On to the next book

    25. ErrrI dunno what to think of this. I've rated it a 3 because it wasn't bad, but then it wasn't good either. It's somewhere in the middle for me. It started very strong for me, but I started to lose interest when the story became a bit dragging.Full review to follow.

    26. How many of us at some time in our lives wished that we could read minds and know what other people were thinking? I know I was one and I’ve often wondered how much easier my teen years would have been knowing whether the boy I was crushing on liked me or how to avoid annoying the school bullies. I remember thinking how perfect my life would have been so when I was asked to read THE MIND READERS, I couldn’t help but smile. Here was my chance to see how my life “could’ve been” like with [...]

    27. 3.5 stars for me because I ended up liking this one.I know that she lived in a small town but I was thinking that it might have been a better idea if she lived in a less crime ridden small town. I mean, I live in a pretty dinky (emphasis on pretty when the sun is shining) small town and we don't see much crime here. Ok, that's a lie. Banks do get robbed pretty often here. But other than thatAt first, I didn't really like Cam. She had this ability and I don't know. You'd think that because she co [...]

    28. Plot:Cameron lives with her grandma and hides the fact that she can read minds from her friends. But then a murder happens, and a strange boy appears, Lewis is mysterious and sees her. Soon she realizes that he can hear her too. He is just like her, and tells her to come away and learn how to use her talents.My thoughts:Lori has been one busy woman this fall. First her adult novel The Ghost Hunter and now a YA novel.A lot is going on in this short novel, and I never know who to trust. First ther [...]

    29. I’ve always been interested in stories about people with special powers, kind of like the X-Men, and so I was thrilled when I received a copy of The Mind Readers to review. It sounded so amazing when I read about the main protagonist, Cameron, being able to read minds. The plot takes off quickly, Cameron and her friends find a dead body, and Cameron hears the murderer’s thoughts. Now, I thought the whole story was going to be about Cameron investigating the murder, but boy, was I wrong. It i [...]
