Lauren's Waiting On:


Title: Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)
Authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Knopf Books
Date of Publication: October 20th, 2015
Hardcover, 608 Pages
Summary: This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes. 
Why Lauren's Excited: "This novel has all the essentials I need: set in the future, dystopian society, and a plague. I'm hoping the characters will have depth, and the world-building will be rich with detail because this sounds like the perfect novel for me!"

About Lauren:

Lauren is a tattooed bibliophile with a thirst for literature and the more bookish things in life. She spends her free time with her nerdy boyfriend and her weeny dog. There are too many favorite authors to list, but she enjoys a variety of genres including, but not limited to.. historical fiction, horror, apocalyptic, dystopian, science fiction, fantasy, memoirs, and the classics. She hopes to one day time travel, live in a different country, get a bookish job, and most importantly... own enough bookshelves to hold all of her books.

  1. Oh! I could have had an ARC of this one from a friend, but I turned it down because it just seems kind of confusing to me. It might be one that I check out from the library when it's released though just because curiosity usually gets the better of me.

  2. Oh gosh, I agree with Lauren so much!! This seems like such an amazing books and I can't wait until I can get my hands on it! *grabby hands*
