Waiting on Wednesday {2}: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff


August 5, 2015 by Bernadette ~ The Bumbling Bookworm

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, shining the spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting to be released 🙂

Today’s book I’ve chosen that I can’t wait to read is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff!

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Publisher/Year: Allen & Unwin, 1 November 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction

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.

Why I can’t wait to read it:

I’m sure this has featured in many WoW posts, but I couldn’t go past it for this week.  I’m totally intrigued by the concept, and the format also sounds really interesting.  I love interactive books with more content than just the writing, and I’ve heard amazing things about this one.  I can’t wait!

    Definitely this book and not just because of the cover. EVEN THOUGH THE COVER IS GORGEOUS! Anything sci-fi and spacey just attracts me. I blame my love for Doctor Who.
    Thanks you so much for voicing my excitement!!!

Hi! I'm Bernadette, a 27 year old lawyer who loves to read (duh!), especially to escape my day job. I love to talk about books but I don't always get the opportunity to do so, hence my blog! I adore YA literature, most genres of Adult Fiction, and I've also been known to pick up a non-fiction book from time to time. I hope you enjoy your visit!
