Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (WOW #10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

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.

Gemina releases on October 18, 2016 from 
Knopf Books for Young Readers

YAAASSSS! I loved Illuminae so much and while I kind of expected book 2 to be a direct sequel, but I'm actually kind of more excited that it's a companion novel. The storytelling of this series is fantastic and if this installment is even half as good as the first I'm going to be sooooo happy, but hopefully it's better!

So, what are you waiting for this Wednesday?



  1. Wow - look at that cover. I loved the first one too.

  2. I've said this a few times already today :P I've still got a few months to read Illuminae until this one gets out. Still, I can't wait :)
