my first review!

Illuminae Ray V6FrontOnlyA2A_V3.indd

synopsis (taken from goodreads page)- “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.”

Ok so I definitely liked the book. The idea of everything being told via government documents because it’s so different. However I will admit the pictures even though some of them were essentially to the story annoyied me as well as the fact the ending (in my opinion) was very predictable. The main male character Ezra frustrated me quite a bit as well but overall I didn’t hate the book overall and it was a fun concept to read through the book from the government documents. Ok I’ll make my review short and sweet 3/5 Stars.



“The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team” Since i plan on actually meeting my goodreads challenge this year and classes don’t start for another 2 week I figure why not?

some of my favorites

So since most of you who are reading don’t know me, I figured I would make a list of my favorite books

  1. Emma -because I see so much of myself in Emma and I want my own Mr.Knightly.
  2. Lunar chronicles-um a cyborg cinderella. enough said.
  3. Harry Potter series- DUH.
  4. Snow like Ashes- the name is why i picked up the book but i actually really liked it. (I liked the first one more than the second one)
  5. Red Queen- like hunger games but the world seems much more entertaining.
  6. The Jewel- ok this one I legit picked up because it has a a super pretty cover and didn’t read the back. I ended up really loving it.
  7. Court of Thorns and Glass- I’m a sucker for the whole beauty and the beast retelling.
  8. Cruel Beauty- another beauty and the beast retelling (and the main character has a name that begins with an N!)
  9. Orphan Queen- I read this a long time ago I should probably re-read it cause I can’t remember all the details but i remember enjoying it.
  10. Grave Mercy series- NUN ASSASSINS.

I’ll be posting a review and maybe some more of my favorite books soon but i figured I’d start off with a short post
