Monday Madness: Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Monday Madness is a bookish meme hosted by Bookfever & Booklover's Teaparty

You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad.

Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
The Illuminae Files #2
Published October 18th 2016 by Knopf Books for Young Readers

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

The saga that began with Illuminae continues on board the space station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of BeiTech’s assault. Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter, Nik 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 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 may be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival. 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.

The first book, Illuminae, ended up being one of my unexpected favorites last year so I really need to get my hands on Gemina. So far I've heard a lot of great things about it, which makes me even more excited to read the book.

And as always don't forget to check out Christina's post! ♥


  1. Still really wanna get my hands on the first one ^^

  2. Hope you wind up loving it :) I haven't read the series, but have heard good things about book 1!

    1. I'm pretty sure I will love it when I get around to buying and reading it. :D

  3. If you think you're in madness *now*, just wait until your read Gemina.
    It will kill you.
    But other than that - it's going to be SO GOOD :D
    I hope you'll be able to get it very-very soon!

  4. I feel like Illuminae is a major gamechanger for the YA world!
