"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 fe ...more
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!
NO SPOILERS BELOW
Gemina 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 below.
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 f ...more
1.) Illuminae ★★★★
“Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter. And her name was Vengeance.”
You all, I just don’t know what to say. This series just doesn’t do for me what it does for everyone else. I don’t dislike these books at all, they just aren’t even close to being one of my all time favorites either. Please, take this review with a grain of salt, because literally all of my friends five star this series. And even though I really like and appreciate the unique formatting, witty ban ...more
This was a super intense story, but I definitely like Illuminae way more. 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 more neutral about this book was (view spoiler)[how people DIDN'T STAY DEAD. That fakeout ...more

Will I recommend this book to others?: Fuck yeah!
Will I reread this book?: YES!
Overall story summed up in one word: PERFECTION!
So I Googled the definition of perfect and this is what came up:
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.
I am v ...more
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 ok ...more
