Goodreads Summary:
This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.
People have been raving about this one! I really want to try it :D

What are you guys waiting on this week?


  1. This does look like a good one!

  2. YES! People have been raving about this book and I seriously cannot wait to read it. It sounds so amazing. Great choice!

    1. Thanks! I'm seeing a lot of reviews and they're all singing praises ;)

  3. I'm dying to read this book!! All my friends are going crazy about it and it seems I'll love it, too!
    Great pick, I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

  4. Been seeing a lot of buzz over this one! I still remain hesitant to read it yet. Too many TBR books. It might be time to do a cleansing of them. But that usually only results in donating 2-3!! ;)

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Haha we all have that TBR mountain so no worries! I hope you do manage to clean everything up a bit :)

  5. Yaasss, Eileen! I hope you adore this book! It was quite good, definitely worth the hype and wait, in my opinion. Get to it, lady! :D

  6. Why on earth did I think this was a standalone? That's good news it is a trilogy from all the stellar reviews I have seen. I guess, seeing that I just finished my ultimate waiting on for this year, that my WOW would be the sequel to Blinded by the Light, which doesn't publish until March and still has not title. :)

    1. Awww I hope you hear something about the book soon!

  7. YESSSSS!! ILLUMINAEEEE!! I soooo loved this one!! I do hope you'll love it as much as I did when you read it Eileen!
