My Pick This Week!



 Gemina
The Illuminae Files #2
Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Add to Goodreads
Expected publication: October 18th 2016 by Knopf Books for Young Readers

MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR PREVIOUS BOOK(S)

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.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik 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 survival; 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.

Short Review: I'm sorry, maybe i'm a bitter girl who is mad i can never keep girlfriends, but damn, girls are horrible. They just sit around and talk, and talk, and talk. I was bored out of my mind. Their father is sick, so their mother, who i guess is the only reason they can get along, leaves to go be with him, which is like the last time you'll hear about it, and that's the end of a "plot" for me. They just talk. The one girl goes someone and a few chapters is just her letters she sent home! Ugh. I was so bored. I couldn't connect to any of them. Boring.

Short Review: It really bothers me that the MC has been there like a week and solves the dang maze. If i was the other kids, i would kill the MC in the end. I would be so mad. Like really, people died trying to figure this out and you walk in here and bam, figured out. Ugh. Sorry but i would cut him down quick after we got out of there. All the made up slang bothered me, only because they never really explain it. And the context clues didn't really help sometimes. I assume they are in place of cuss words, but idk for sure. That ending thou, okay if i was these kids, i would be PISSED. you guys killed kids for a freaking TEST!!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS.

Yes
Recommending: Yes

Short Review: This book does a great job of setting up this world. Breaking down jobs, how school works, how naming and family stuff happens, but then that ending. I listen to this and when it ended, i honestly thought my app had just randomly stopped the book (it does that a lot, i hate it) so i went in and it was like nope sorry lady it's over! So that made me a bit mad. Otherwise a good story, i honestly didn't know there was a book 2 to this story. I do see how books today kinda took the same society from this and went with it in their stories, so that's interesting.

Misc.

Book Boyfriend: N/A, a little too long for me.
Best Friend Material: The MC, but i think i would be a bad influence.

Recommending: no

Short Review: SPOILER ALERT!!! Thank the damn heavens Fang is dead. Maybe Max will go back to wanting to save the world, doubtful, but maybe. Think it's time to let Angel go. She has turned straight up evil and I'm sure is a robot. I don't see how anyone likes this book. Max is 15 ish but acts and talks like she's 8 now. The main plot is completely forgotten. I just don't care about a single thing about this series.

Misc.

Book Boyfriend: Dead Fang ;) haha. sorry had to.
Best Friend Material: No.
