For too long, Violet and the people of the outer circles of the Lone City have lived in service to the royalty of the Jewel.

Jessica's Waiting on:

24909346Title: Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)
Authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Genre: Sci-Fi
Publisher: Knopf Books
Publication Date: October 18th, 2016

Summary: Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed. Hanna Donnelly is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik Malikov the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own surivival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands. But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.

Illuminae was one of the weirdest books I've ever read, but it was still definitely one of the best. So I am so excited to get my hands on the second book in the series, and I hope it shocks and amazes me just as much as the first book did!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links so we can stop back!

  1. Illuminae was definitely one of the most amazing books I've read, and it was weird and unique in all the best ways. I'm absolutely dying for Gemina! Awesome picks this week ^_^
