Waiting On Wednesday #1

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

For my first Waiting On Wednesday I’ve chosen my most anticipated book of 2016:


(The Illuminae Files #2)

by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Publication date: 18 October

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

From Goodreads: The saga that began with breakout bestseller Illuminae continues aboard Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of BeiTech’s assault. Hanna is the station commander’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 crew 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.

Told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

Why I’m waiting:

  • I fell in love with Illuminae from the minute I picked it up. I’ve never read anything like it
  • Look at that cover!
  • Support Oz YA

What are you waiting for?

    I still haven’t read Illuminae although everyone keeps telling me it’s so good – still a bit of time to catch up though and if I leave it for a couple of months this one will be almost out! It’s all part of my cunning plan really.
