Waiting on Wednesday: Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!



Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers
Expected Publication Date: October 18, 2016
Pre-Order: Amazon | B&N | Book Depository
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 surivival; 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.
To say that I'm excited for Gemina is an understatement. I absolutely loved Illuminae and read it in one sitting, so I know that this one is going to be just as incredible! I'm looking forward to an intense story told in a mind-boggling format. Plus, I can't wait for more Kady and Ezra <3

  9. YES. Gemina looks soooo good. And that blue cover. THAT BLUE COVER. I actually hadn't read the synopsis until now. It sounds sooo good! I didn't know it would be focusing on new characters, though. That's interesting. I'm sure they'll intertwine the Kady and Ezra, like in the synopsis. Illuminae was sooo good. I devoured the second half, maybe more, in one sitting. It was just so unique. I'm definitely waiting on this one, too! :D

    1. Originally I didn't even think Kady and Ezra would be in this one so it was a happy surprise for me to find out that they'd be there. I have never seen this type of format work so well, and I'm excited to have another installment ^_^
