“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I’ve mentioned this in my past two book tags, but I don’t care. I’m so excited I need to vocalise it as many times as I can. Also if you haven’t read Illuminae then 1) WHY? and 2) this might contain some spoilers!
Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Release Date: October 18th
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.
me: [slips Amie, Jay & Knopf Doubleday $5] release Gemina early
I’ve said numerous times that Illuminae is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It has insane character development and it was so creative and unique. I am in love with everything about it AND WE GET TO EXPERIENCE IT AGAIN WITH GEMINA???
I’m going to miss having Kady as the MC but I’m super excited to meet new ones. I’m sure Hanna is going to be amazing and Jay Kristoff said Kady is still going to be featured a lot. PLUS HEIMDALL IS WHERE KADY’S FATHER WAS WORKING. Jay also said Hanna and Nik look like Kristen Bell and Bob Morely! SIGN ME THE HELL UP. I can not wait to see how creative this book is because there’s going to be a new document style which, and I quote Jay, “is going to BLOW YOUR GODDAMN MINDS“. I also hope we get to learn more about BeiTech. IM SO EXCITED.
The only bad thing is how far away the release date is. Ughhh. I know it’s going to be so totally worth it though.
