  1. Wow you really did read that quick!! Glad you liked it!! I like going into books blind too. I read the synopsis when I’m first interested but not again before I read it. I like every little thing to be a surprise!
    But if you finish Gemina quickly you have to wait until March for book 3…..

    Hello!! Great review!!!! Interestingly I am planning to post a review about this book later on today as well (I didn’t decide that just now- I promise!) I like how your review is unconventional and doesn’t talk about the plot/characters/etc like everyone else. And great graphics as usual! Glad that you like this book 🙂 Are you reading gemina soon?

      Normally I would talk about the plot and characters. Not a lot, I’m not over verbose with my reviews (for better or worse.) This time I didn’t want to in case someone wanted to read Illuminae blind.

      I’ll probably read Gemina soonish. It’s not in my immediate plans, but it’s on my mind.

      I look forward to reading your review that you definitely didn’t decide to do just now! Lol. Seriously, though, I look forward to it. 🙂

        Lol 🙂 I don’t write very long reviews either- I just don’t have that much to say to be honest! I also like reading reviews that are short and sweet. I knew a bit about the plot of Illuminae beforehand but it must be even more awesome to read it without knowing much about the book!

    I haven’t read this yet either, so you’re not the last! I’m hoping to get to it soon, I’ve heard so many good things!

  4. I read this for a reading challenge back in August…and while I enjoyed the plot and while I enjoyed what was going on, I HATED the main character with a burning passion. I wanted her to die a horrible, horrible death. I don’t know if my hatred of her would taint reading the other books or not. AIDEN was my favorite character, honestly.

    • J.W. Martin says:

      AIDAN was pretty awesome. I didn’t like “him” at first, but by the end I can see him being the favourite of many readers. And I love that line at the end about AIDAN being really upset and looking for revenge!

  5. Ah I’m so glad you loved this one- I get what you mean about the format- initially I found it tough to get into, but it ended up being one of my favourite things about this- and I agree about how quickly you can get through this!! Great review!

    Well if it may soothe your soul: I haven’t read it yet LOL

  7. Zoe says:

    I completely agree! This one of my favorite books so I’m so glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. 🙂 The characters, romance, and plot are all absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous review! <3

    […] only Kristoff I’ve read is Illuminae, which was awesome. So based off of that, and the million-billion raves about this series, this one […]
