Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) Reviews
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 st ...more
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
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, t ...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
I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Illuminae but it still was really enjoyable! I'll go more into depth in a video review soon!
update : I just posted it but half of my review is ◼◼◼◼ing gone!!!! so I have to write again. REVIEW TO COME TODAY!
HE FAILED HER ONCE. HE REFUSES TO DO SO AGAIN.
you must have read the first book, which is Illuminae and if you haven't then you need to go to the nearest bookstore and buy it. seriously you have to read it. I have to admit that I didn't really like the first book as much as I liked the second book. Not even close. you can read my review of Illuminae here to know why I d ...more
I LOVED THIS ONE. LISTEN TO THE AUDIO BOOK. HERE'S MY FULL BOOKTALK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyapO...
Ultimate buddy read with my darling (but-not-really-darling-more-like-kinda-a-lot-crazy) squad, Sana ♡ Ry ♡ Em ♡ Luna ♡ Prag ♡ Caitlin ♡ Jenn ♡

I’ve just spent the entire day in another universe, excuse me while I try to reintegrate into real life.
To give a brief summary of my emotions:
This series just got so much better, like multiple folds better.
Gemina continues the story of Illuminae, but from the other ...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
