MIND GAMES BY TJ MOORE - BOOK REVIEW

Hello everyone!

I am back with another book review! Today, I am reviewing Mind Games by TJ Moore! Thanks so much to the author for providing me with a copy of his book for review, all opinions are my own.


It took me two days to read this book. Well, technically a little over one because I picked it up again before bed and next thing I knew, I had 10 pages left and it was 1 a.m. Yeah, this is that kind of book.

When I first started this book, I was really enjoying it! I love mysteries and crime type TV shows (even though I'm usually way too afraid to watch them) and this book was shaping up to be just like one of those. Snarky cop interactions, a crime scene photographer, a whip-smart electrical engineer trying desperately to create a security system to stop the infamous San Fran Bomber from breaking into the bank. It was going really great.

And then, it got weird. Like sucked into a cult/prison camp/alien thing meets Hansel and Gretel weird. But, by that point, I was invested. I needed to know how the story ended, how everything was connected. So I pushed ahead, and I am so glad I did!

Things started to become clearer, and I was beginning to see how the pieces of this puzzle fit together. However, I think the best part of this book was that it was so unpredictable. Some things would work out, I would think I would know what was going to happen, and I was totally in shock. Like when the whole thing was worked out, the identity was revealed and the motive... I sat there for a good 5 minutes in shock. I had no idea who the person behind everything was going to be. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say too much, but the details were all there, I just couldn't fathom it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was very, VERY different than what I usually read, and I really liked that. With all the thrillers and mysteries coming out these days, this book is definitely not cookie cutter, this book plays by it's own rules.

I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for something with a good mystery and is unique!
