Until I find time to make a gif review wtb Jay clone pst , here s a GEMINA FAQ Is GEMINA a sequel or companion novel to ILLUMINAE Both Chronologically, it picks up about 5 minutes after ILLUMINAE ends The book continues the story of the invasion of Kerenza IV, and many of the important questions asked in ILL are answered in ILL2, ie The Hypatia was sending distress calls all through Illuminae, why did help never arrive and Can there possibly be a dude in the universe hotter than Ezra Mason This [...]
They ve done it again Threw my emotions onto a roller coaster ride into space and through wormholes and just every which way It was kind of exhausting reading this, but in such a good way Man Oh man 3 EDIT Third time reading this I listened to the audiobook If you have the opportunity to experience it on audio even both audio physically read I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU DO IT With a cast of characters and sound effects, the listening experience is EPIC.The story is also pretty epic, too These books kil [...]

THIS SERIES IS SO COOL I love the setting, the characters, the story, and especially the format Piecing together the story through these hacked documents and messages just makes for an AWESOME reading experience, and I cannot wait for book 3
Re read February 12th 2018 Gemina was one of the best things that happened to me in 2016 I can t even tell you how crazy good this baby was If you didn t care about Illuminae much, i still highly suggest giving this a go.Can we all just appreciate how magnificently beautiful AIDAN is Let me sit here and swoon a little I am aware this quote is from the first book, but i just can t deal with how great it is Possibly the most favorite quote of all times I was overjoyed when his chapters started pop [...]
Sometimes I re read my reviews they are moronic I wanted to do this big thing I immediately took the cover off to see what the hardback looked like and loved it I even painted my nails blue to go with the book and I had on blue lipstick but you could still see my stupid fever blister so the kiss I was going to blow, just No So the lipstick I put beside the book Everything is so beautiful blue This book blew me away I loved Gemina even then I loved Illuminae MILD SPOILERSThe world these authors [...]
But why is it over Why must we wait for so long until the next one I ll be honest, I loved Illuminae was skeptical of all the hype saying Gemina was better, but after finishing this I almost want to go back and adjust my Illuminae rating to a 4 and keep this at a 5 It was just an entire star better All my thoughts are muddled so I ll try to come back and give this a proper review when things settle down, but just know I loved this So many feels.
I didn t enjoy this quite as much as Illuminae but it still was really enjoyable I ll go into depth in a video review soon
NO SPOILERS BELOWGemina was one hell of a ride It was great but I must admit, not as great as Illuminae for sure BUT it was still mindblowing nonetheless I will write a full review once we get closer to release day but I ve included a few pros and cons down belowOS 1 BAD ASS NEW CHARACTERS Hesistant about Gemina focusing on a new set of characters Don t be 2 PLOT This book will leave you mind freakin blown 3 FORMAT If you made it through Illuminae, you already got used to the formatting Picking [...]
review loading error error review now fully loaded 4.5 5 BR with this Chum It may comfort you to know that your death, while astonishingly violent, will likely be mercifully swift accurate picture of my face when the action started.Okay so let me start by saying this book was awesome I enjoyed reading it so much I feel like this book should be illegal it s that good The plot was fast paced and full of twists This book is FUCKING EXCITING I feel like I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire [...]
A solid four stars I felt this was a great sequel I listened to it on audiobook and I would HIGHLY recommend if you re afraid of missing out on all the beautiful artwork, its easy to listen and flip through the images when you can I don t think I missed out on anything despite it being such a visual story The production of the audiobook is the best I think I ve ever heard The new characters perspective were really interesting and it was natural to ease into their story Hannah and Nick are two of [...]
Surveillance footage summary,prepared byAnalyst ID 8759 6294 DNSubject has decided, against our better judgement I might add, to continue reading The Illuminae Files and so here I am again writing up ANOTHER summary We were forced to move the subject to a room with concrete walls a minimal amount of breakable objects though I must admit her attempt to chop the bed frame in half with her bare hand was admirable I imagine that particular action was inspired by the physical prowess of one of the ma [...]
congratulations semifinalist in best YA fantasy science fiction category 2016 i read this last week when i was sick in bed the day after halloween, needing a guaranteed fast, fun, escapist book to breeze through while huddled under the covers with a giant pot of halloween candy in easy reach best sick day ever this book may be even better than Illuminae, even though it is similar in many wayse same beautiful design and layout is back and this time there are some fun cartoony illustrations by Mar [...]

Hello my name is DEAD WITH THE AWESOME OF THIS FANTASTIC NOVEL It s a long name but one I feel is necessary because omggggg so so so so so good SO GOOD SO SO very very good And obviously it was going to be because of the glorious gift to this universe that is Illuminae Although I will admit I like Illuminae best still Way AIDAN there who is obviously my favourite thing in the universe and whom I will love until the sun ne er rises again.Anyway This book a perfect sequel It has everything I dema [...]
3.75 What was going through my head while I was reading this Huh, I could get used to this thrill ride Lightning struck twice Damn, I hate these characters Every last one of them Wow, I miss the Illuminae gang Every last one of them So, here s the thing, I didn t have the highest of hopes going into Gemina and that s not exactly how I usually start books Granted, that s not how most people start books either but because these books are deeply character driven novels, I knew from the reviews I d [...]
4.5 estrellas Si tuviera que describir este libro con un s lo GIF, lo haria con este SO DAMN GOOD DAAAAYUM.
Ah, good fantasy Please read with the exact voice and emotional expression of the Spongebob Squarepants narrator soothingly intoning, Ah, Goo Lagoon If you do not know this reference, please go educate yourself on the tenets of modern culture, you uncultured swine BUT WAS IT ACTUALLY GOOD FANTASY Now I regret typing that long Spongebob allusion But not enough to remove it It took too long I cannot waste these amazing pop culture references.emmareadstoomuch.wordpressI am very aggravated and confu [...]
I wasn t sure how I was going to like this one Throughout at least half of the book, I was thinking it was going to be only 3 stars But the ending punched it into a 4 star slot, topping it off with another cliffhanger ending Full video review will be up on my channel closer to release
I kept hearing how the second book of this series is even better than the first and no.I listened to the audiobook since it was recommended and I think it may have been a mistake There s only so many times you can hear the dates and email address of people before wanting to throw your phone at the wall.Hearing adults read cringy flirty teenager conversations was awkward and I didn t care for any of the characters.I honestly thought throughout the whole book about DNFing some parts were okay enou [...]

SON OF A BITCH.This book will blow out your brains and hump your skull.
Motherfucker of a story I just read this 600 page monster in one sitting, that s how epic it was As suspenseful, charming and gritty as its predecessor albeit fantastically uniquely so The wait for book 3 will be crushing.
This was a super intense story, but I definitely like Illuminae way I wasn t as into the alien parasites or Russian mob here and didn t connect as much to the characters or story like I just didn t care what happened to them very often I loved Kady, Ezra, and AIDAN in the last book and was basically just hanging in there to see them show up So that was fun I think the part that made me kind of neutral about this book was view spoiler how people DIDN T STAY DEAD That fakeout was a fun twist wit [...]
5 starsBuddy read with Rachelle it ALL THE STARSAll the ing stars in the ing verse In a Word WOW Initial thoughtsI AM NOT WORTHY Seriously, this series is a masterpiece of multimedia storytelling and I LOVED it Understatement of the millennia right there ChumThe StoryThis story takes place on the jumpstation Heimdall directly following the events of Illuminae Like with Illuminae, the story is told though a series of messages, files, notes, schematics, coding and video footage shout out to the re [...]

I ve given a lot of five star ratings in my time on GR 101 including this But, none have left me as speechless as Gemina I m blown away I honestly can t form coherent thoughts about this book and i truly doubt I will ever be able to It was a spectacular tale even better than the first My heart broke at several periods and I found myself crying.BUT TO KEEP IT REAL IM SO SHOOK AND I NEED BOOK THREE LIKE THREE MINUTES MINUTES AGO.
4.5 Donnelly, H Have you ever played poker, Your Honor I stand firm in my belief that if ever a handbook about how to do plot twists worth their salt was written, an abundant 90% of it should focus on Kaufman s and Kristoff s work with this series Gemina, just like Illuminae, keeps throwing at you twist after twist until you re breathless, speechless, restless with anticipation because you know that, as deliriously heart stopping as things have been so far, there s still something else, somethin [...]
