Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 4 space station stars 🌟

Although this book didn’t rip out my heart like Illuminae did, it was still a fascinating read that takes place right where Illuminae ended. Gemina follows different protagonists at the Heimdall space station. Also, yes I am aware that I read this book a month ago and I’m just posting it now.

Down the TBR Hole #2

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story. Its purpose is to help narrow down your TBR list on Goodreads by selecting 5 titles each week and deciding if you want to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it! I saw this on A Court of Crowns and Quills and thought it would be a great idea since my Goodreads TBR is WAY TOO LONG!

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

First Lines Friday #2

Happy Friday! Today’s book is an ARC, so the quoted text may be subject to change upon publication.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!
