Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Review

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)Publication Date:

October 20th, 2015


Knopf Books for Young Readers

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

T5W – Anticipated Pre-Orders for the Rest of the Year


It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Anticipated Pre-Orders for the Rest of the Year. Normally I don’t pre-order books so this list is going to be my anticipated releases for the rest of the year. Let’s start this list.

5. Illuminae – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 

I’ve been hearing such great things about this book. I’m really excited to read it. And Amy Kaufman is one of the authors. So yeah, I’m excited for this book.

4. Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

It’s Rainbow Rowell. Not only that. It’s about Simon and Baz. I need this book in my life, now.

3. November 9 – Colleen Hoover

You may know that I love Colleen Hoover. Her books are amazing and I really want to read this one because it’s Colleen Hoover.

2. Queen of Shadows – Sarah J. Maas

I have yet to read Heir of Fire but I’ve loved the first two books and I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the third which means that I need to read Queen of Shadows. And it’s Sarah J. Maas. Who isn’t excited every time she has a new book coming out?

1. Winter – Marissa Meyer

I love The Lunar Chronicles. I want  to read this book as soon as possible. It has been too long. I know we had Fairest in the beginning of the year but it wasn’t enough for me. This is my most anticipated book.
