Waiting on Wednesday: Mindwalker by A.J. Steiger


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming books.

This week, I can't wait to read....


Mindwalker (Mindwalker #1) by A.J. Steiger


Release date: June 9th, 2015
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Goodreads link: (click here)

Description from Goodreads:

At seventeen, Lain Fisher has already aced the Institute's elite training program for Mindwalkers, therapists who use a direct neural link to erase a patient's traumatic memories. A prodigy and the daughter of a renowned scientist-whose unexplained death left her alone in the world-Lain is driven by the need to save others.

When Steven, a troubled classmate, asks her to wipe a horrific childhood experience from his mind, Lain's superiors warn her to stay away. Steven's scars are too deep, they say; the risk too great. Yet the more time Lain spends with him, the more she begins to question everything about her society. As she defies the warnings and explores Steven's memories, it becomes clear that he's connected to something much bigger…something the Institute doesn't want the world to discover.

Lain never expected to be a rule breaker. She certainly didn't plan on falling in love with a boy she's been forbidden to help. But then, she never expected to stumble into a conspiracy that could ignite a revolution.

Why I'm excited:

First of all, this sounds awesome! Second, I stopped as soon as I read the name Lain. Lain is also one of my favorite anime series, which was equally as dark and complex as this book sounds. 



I love books that feature utopian societies that aren't quite so perfect. I'm intrigued by the idea of having bad memories erased by "Mindwalkers" in an attempt to erase pain and only have happy memories...I have a feeling it goes beyond just that. Not only do all of our memories and experiences make us who we are, but who knows what could be erased if the system is corrupt. Bring on this conspiracy that will start a revolution! I'm definitely looking forward to this book!


What are you waiting to read?

  31. Interesting, although I wouldn't like having bad memories erased, no matter how bad they are, they let us grow, right? So should be fun to read (and definitely raise questions.) the cover reminds me of the Twinmaker one (I think that's what it's called.) :)

  32. Ooh, this sounds really good! I hadn't heard of it before, but I looove the sound of it. Mindwalking certainly does sound like something that could be abused in the wrong hands. Great pick!
