Just checking if I got killed at copernicus too..

LibrarianRyan If you look there are lots of YA authors and TV personalities. And as the books progress fans actually had chances to end up in the books through contests and fundraisers now

I had already got into bed when I realized my book was in the other room. Instead of going to get it, I grabbed my phone and checked it out on Libby. That is the kind of lazy I am.

#FriYaYintro @howjessreads @4thhouseontheleft

1) did I read it this year? I have listened to the audiobook twice and managed to "force" the book onto my kid. ?
2) ? ?️?️ or armchair and blanket(s)
3) just got home from the last ecumenical non-service service. Every year they promise a wintery non-service, every year it's a Christian service with a Star of Bethlehem play. Glad my daughter moves on to secondary school.
4) Baby Groot!!!

4thhouseontheleft My daughter was in Showstoppers (a chorus and acting club) in her public elementary school. We complained the first year after the holiday concert was held at a Mormon Nativity Festival (which actually included one display offensive to the Jewish faith). The principal intervened and agreed with us, it was moved to a secular festival last year. Now that M‘s in middle school, I saw the concert was moved right back to the Mormon church. 😬 1mo
julesG @4thhouseontheleft At least they waited until your daughter had moved on to middle school. 1mo
Lynnsoprano @4thhouseontheleft That‘s unconscionable! I was a public school music teacher; we would never have considered holding a concert some place like that. And music choices take a lot of work. But the person who took my position when I retired programs clearly Christian Christmas music and gets away with it. I guess it‘s okay in today‘s climate, but it infuriates me. ☺️😡 1mo

Illuminae was one of my favorite books I read this year. The format is really intriguing and so much happens plot wise (in a good, tension filled way!). Definitely recommend

5/5

LibrarianRyan have you read the rest of the series yet!!!! 1mo
kozy_kel @LibrarianRyan I haven‘t yet, but I plan to!! 1mo
LibrarianRyan @kozy_kel oh yeah. Book two was my fav out of all of them, but I must admit I didn't like book 2 to start off with (mainly for the characters and their actions) but boy did they grow on me. And AIDEN!! 1mo
kozy_kel @LibrarianRyan I‘m excited to read the next book! And yes, AIDAN!! The whole last half of the book was wild 1mo

These stories happen in the #Future.

I highly recommend getting the physical copy and the full cast audiobook.

Brought the books along as props for the family photo shooting in the forest. Only got a glimpse at the pictures today.

#MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen You did a family photo shoot?? That sounds fabulous 2mo
julesG @Cinfhen Yes, we went for a little hike into the forest and froze our behinds and fingers off for three hours. But, it was fun. From the preliminary pictures I know that freezing my fingers off was worth it. 😁 2mo
Cinfhen I hope you‘ll share a photo or two?? 2mo

I finished this book in a day and I loved everything!
Kady is an amazing character. Her love story with Ezra was cute and their chats were fun to read. However, my second favourite character is AIDAN.
I was worried the way the book is written would cause me some problems in the reading process, but I soon realized it wasn‘t true.
I saw the final revelation coming, but the rest was full of surprises.

It took me a long time to finish this book. Not because I didn‘t like it but because i felt like the format of this book was too much at times. But the story was great and I do recommend it. It was definitely a type of book I don‘t normally go for but I‘m glad I read it. I gave it 4/5 stars on goodreads.

bullbunny One of my favorites, just reread it and the second one. Prepping myself to jump into the last one. Say goodbye for now sort of thing. Glad you took the time to read it, soak it all in and like it. I hear the audios are amazing! 4mo

I don‘t read much about outer space dilemmas. This one is my 1st of the theme, but HOLY S#*%! From the cover to the end, everything is absolutely unique. The book is narrated through documents, reports, chats, e-mails, and wonderful graphics that pull you into the story like as if you‘re witnessing and experiencing the moment as you flip through the pages. It is unconventionally intense. And now I plan to invest on the 2nd book of the series.

Waiting on my bus so I‘m reading on the side of the road! I‘m headed to a bookstore to hunt for the next book to read. So far the book is good, though I absolutely hate Ezra & his interactions with Kady. I find it annoying that their whimsy is a little out of place. They are facing life and death in a spacecraft full of infected and they still manage to send sappy messages and joke around like it‘s another day. Ezra is too flippant. Not my type!

theasaurus Although I would like to add that the fact that his personality annoys me proves that they shaped up his character pretty well. So kudos to authors! 5mo

After finishing my previous book, I wanted to move straight to the next on my shelf. I bought this book more for its messy, document-like aesthetic. Heh. and now I wonder if I‘ll like its science-fiction/romance storyline since I‘m not big into this type of young adult fiction. Will I want to read the rest of The Illuminae Files series (Gemina & Obsidio)? We‘ll find out. If you have read it, what are your thoughts about this book?

julesG Loved it! Wasn't even expecting a romance, they broke up. I was in it for the crazy "young girl needs to save the world/spaceships" storyline - and AIDAN. ? Got all three books, got the audiobooks and recently bought the first two books in German for my son. 5mo
theasaurus @julesG now I‘m excited. ❤️ right now calls for bed time for me. It‘s a little past midnight and I have to leave early for work tomorrow. But I wish I could get started already! 5mo

theasaurus @LibrarianRyan @julesG I just finished the book!!!! It was so amazing!!! I must admit though, Ezra was driving me a little crazy with his very flippant personality. 5mo
LibrarianRyan @theasaurus I agree. Book two is different people, but you get a bit of connections back to these characters. I started out not liking book 2, but that only lasted like 50-100 pages. And that has more to do with drug use than anything. It was just as good as book 1. 5mo
julesG @LibrarianRyan agree. The drugs rubbed me the wrong way, too. 5mo
theasaurus @LibrarianRyan ooh okay! Well i look forward to reading it for myself and I hope soon. My semester is about to start and I don‘t know how busy everything will be! 5mo
LibrarianRyan @theasaurus It goes just as quick as the first book. I'm just not into reading about the drug trade. It's a plot device within the book that is only majorly present at the beginning (no spoilers here) But once the action started I was hooded. I almost liked it better than book 1. 5mo

I recently reread Illuminae and I am currently reading the next one Gemini. Because I have decided it is time to finish the series. Here I have a picture with a few items centered on book 1.
When a normal school day turns into a full on attack. The survivors of Kerenza VI and those that have saved them, must journey to safety. But will they make it when the AI of the main ship goes rogue?

I had a hard time getting into this one. It has good reviews and is rated high on Goodreads. I still would give it 3 stars, as there WERE some things I did like.

Lindsbooklover93 You need do the audiobook while following along. I didn't enjoy it as much until I tried again with the audiobook. The audiobook is almost like a movie. Different voices for each character. 6mo
