My To Be Read List - Book Review: Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri

@Limabean74 #mytbrlist

She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

My Review:
Interesting book. Lexi has been able to influence people with her mind. She is in boarding school with other kids of parents are in a high security position. She meets Jack and suddenly she learns the distrubing truth. She is not the only one with this type of special ability but the reason why she has her ability. Unfortunately, now she and those like her are in danger. She has to find out who she can trust while she looks or answers about how she came to be.

This is a fast paced book. The concept is good. The story is interesting. We learn how she got her abilities but we are left with more questions. Who is out to kill her? Why was her dad killed? There are so many other questions that hopefully will be answered in book 2. I know I'm interested in finding out what's going to happen now that she is on the run.

How this will works

Each month you will post with three books from your TBR List and add your link on a linky (that will be provided on Because Reading post). Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book and on the last Saturday of the month post a review (with an optional giveaway).
A few more details (step by step) :)

The Rules

Ex. Lets say its September…
The first Saturday is the 6th – your post will go up with the 3 books you choose and then link it to the linky on Because Reading blog. Her post will go up at 5am est. Make sure you link back to her on your post to have your followers visit other people’s blogs to help vote if they want. You can do the Polling however you would like, She recommend Survey Monkey, it has a good one and it’s free (here is an EXAMPLE). You can set it up and say whatever you would like – it’s totally up to you. All she ask is to please link it back to her.
The second Saturday is the 13th – this is the day you announce which book won and whatever else you would like. (here is an EXAMPLE of her post) Her post will have a linky, so we can all easily see what everyone will be reading.
The third Saturday is the 20th– you don’t have to post anything (some months will only have 3 weeks so this week would have been your review post)
The fourth (and last) Saturday is the 27th– this is when your review will go up regardless of how you liked the book. Please note even if you didn’t finished it just write a small post about how you felt about the book. She don’t write DNF reviews, but she does for this feature so her followers can see what she thought about the book they picked for her.
She also does a giveaway for $5 Gift Cert (or you can do one with the 3 books you picked). You don’t have to do this. It’s totally up to you. So please feel free to enter the giveaway at the end of the month – the giveaway is open to everyone.
This final review post will also have a linky on it so you can link up your review and we can see what you thought of the book that was picked. This will draw some views to your blog and maybe find some new friends along the way. :)
