Waiting on Wednesday *126*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The Illuminae Files #2
Expected Publication: October 18th 2016 by Knopf Books

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 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.
HELL YES.  I don't even care that it's only coming out in OCTOBER 2016, I had to feature this one with the cover just being released.  As skeptical I was about Illuminae and the mad hype, it totally delivered - and then some - so my need for Gemina is strong. Like crazy strong!  I can't wait to see how Kaufman and Kristoff will top the mind-blowing fuckery that was the first book, but I willing to be that it'll be spectacular and life-ruining.  BRING.IT.ON.


  1. Oooo I hadn't seen the cover for this one yet Micheline! I still need to read Illuminae, I'm trying to hold off until it gets a bit closer and I can binge read both:)

  2. This cover is so pretty! I really think I need to give Illuminae another shot... I mean so many people can't be wrong right? Great pick!

  3. YES! I must have this. Illuminae was glorious!

  4. I can't believe I haven't read Illuminae yet. I was so excited for it, but I never got around to it. It will definitely be one of the next 5 books I read. I see how excited people are for the sequel and I'm jealous I haven't read it yet!

  5. I so agree! I'm hoping it's just as good as Illuminae. :D

  6. New to me but hope that you get a chance to read it soon! Happy wednesday and reading!

  7. Exactly. Plus set on a space station- that's what I'm talking about. We kept hearing about Heimdall and now we go there? Yes.

    Great pick! I'll be snapping this up too...

  8. Thanks for dropping by!! Can't wait for Gemina! :)

  9. YES!!! This was my WoW last week and I am DYING to get a copy! I hope we both love it! :D

    Here's my WoW!

  10. I just scheduled this one for a future WoW as well, so I am with you on the HELL YES! :D Can't wait!
