Review
Did I struggle to start this book? Yes. I bought it while I was in a reading slump and regretted not being able to get into it straight away. But when I finally did manage it, this book literally tore my heart into pieces, before haphazardly sticking it back together again with sticky tape. I didn’t know what to expect with each page turn, what would happen to the characters, or who was going to kill who, be killed, or betray someone next.

It’s been a while since I read Illuminae but, I think that I actually preferred Gemina over it. The plot moved a lot faster and I loved how it showed the parallels that run throughout the book, after a certain point.

I can’t wait to see what else the authors have in store for this world, and just how they’re going to tie everything together.

  1. Right now I am reading Illuminae and I am enjoying it. I hope to get to Gemina soon after I have finished it (at least before the third book comes out).
