Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy, #1)

Mind Games  - Carolyn Crane Here's what I liked:

*It was a quick & easy read.
*It's unique.
*There was enough mystery to keep me intrigued.

Here's what I didn't like:

*The idea of "disillusioning." I don't think this would actually work. I know, I know...it's fake! But I'm just not believing this whole idea.
*I don't like the main character having a psychological problem. I don't want to read about someone who thinks they are going to die at any second b/c they are a hypochondriac and then continue to read paragraphs of them thinking about it. Meh.
*Justine being so easily infatuated w/ Packard then Otto.
*Justine's relationships w/ Packard & Otto. I don't get why Packard & Justine like each other. I don't get why Otto & Justine like each other. There wasn't enough relationship development for me. This means I'm not rooting for Justine to be w/ someone, which means I'm not as into the book or what happens to the characters. Maybe it's because I just read Outlander & that is a tough act to follow, but to me I was surprised when she kissed Packard & Otto. I didn't understand where it came from...there was no build up to it...if that makes sense. One moment she is obsessed w/ Otto as the police chief, goes on 1 date, fucks him, and they are head over heels for each other.
*I didn't care for any of the minor characters. In a lot of series I like there are minor characters that I get excited to read about. There are no characters like that in this book. Add that to the fact that I don't really like Justine or the love interests....well, yea.

I feel like I've been harsh, but I can't help the way I feel. Still, I will read the next book :)
