Review: When I first read Mind Games it was nearly flawless. Sadly Perfect Lies did not live up to the expectation.

Perfect Lies did not continue he world building that loved in the Mind Games. In most series I have a favorite character throughout he whole series, yet in the first book I loved Fia more and in this book I love Annie more. There was not very much character building for Fia in this book the character building was all Annie trying to figure out how to live her life without her sister with her new found freedom. This book just did not build the world and characters in a way that made me want love the sorry that I used to.

This book had great potential, the world Kiersten White build in Mind Games was wonderful and fantastical. The plot was choppy and hard to follow. It took me a few chapters to understand how the dates at the beginning of he chapters fit together. It was interesting to see how Annie and Fia's relationship played out now that they weren't together and they were not sure how the other one was.

On the plus side it was really nice to be back in the world even if we were not given much new information on it. I do love the characters they are so fascinating. I loved Pixie, the new character, She was able to be friends with Fia when Fia needed someone most, when Annie wasn't there.

Three star books are he hardest book to review because it's not terribly bad but it's not extremely good it's just in the middle so there is less you can say. I would recommend his book mainly if you loved Mind Games.

Favourite Quote:
“She told me only people we love the most can destroy us, because no one else has that kind of power.”



  1. It's too bad that the sequel was disappointing but on the bright side, I really love the quote that you included here! Great review, Janussa! Thanks for the honesty. :)
