Gemina by J.Kristoff + A.Kaufman | Review

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Who loved Illuminae? I certainly did! So when I heard about the book launch and signing from Bri (@paperbackbri), I immediatelly booked tickets then begged my dad to come with me. It was an amazing night and you can read all about it in the post titled “Gemina Book Launch and Signing”

I’ve been holding onto this book for a while now, just waiting for exams to be over to officially start it, kowing full well I would have to devote time and effort to this book, so I placed in on my November TBR and hoped for the best.

And here it is; my long-winded, passionate review of the flawless sequal to the mind bending thriller, Illuminae.

Goodreads Review:

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 Illuminaecontinues 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.

Once again 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.

Harry Potter & The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling & Co. | Non-Spoilery Review

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I am back with another book review!

Goodreads Summary:

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

The Adjustment Anticipation Post

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Just WOW! That’s all I can say for Suzanne Young’s most recent installment in The Program series, The Epidemic…

In my review of The Epidemic by Suzanne Young, I stated that The Epidemic was the second-last book in The Program series, which it isn’t. It is – from what I have found out on Goodreads – the second book in the third-last book that has been published in the series. There will be two more books to be published as the final installments in the series. These are; The Adjustment and The  Complication, and will both be from the point of view of a new character, Tatum, post fall of The Program.

The Adjustment is expected to be released on April 18th 2017 by Simon Pulse and is the third book (chronologically) in the series.

WHAT DID I JUST READ?!

Ever since I finished reading The Remedy – the third installment in The Program series – almost five months ago, I have been asking and quite literally begging (and bugging) the librarians at my school library to buy Suzanne Young’s newest release, and latest installment in The Program series; The Epidemic. 
The Epidemic is the fifth installment in The Program series. So far, this series consists of four books and one ebook (which I read quite recently).
