Friday Book Beginnings & The Friday 56 | #15

Friday Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader and the Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice.

So Friday Book Beginnings you choose the book you are currently reading or the one that is closest to you and share the first few sentences. For the Friday 56 you simply turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader and share a sentence or two that you enjoy. Then just add maybe a synopsis about the book in case others are interested. That’s it!

Illuminae (#1) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Published on: October 20th 2015
Synopsis: 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.


Beginning: So here’s the file that almost killed me, Director.
Page 56: QUARANTINE BREACH IN MOTION. CLASS ALPHA ZERO PATHOGEN. INTERCEPT OSPREY GROUP AND DESTROY. ACKNOWLEDGE.
Um. Space and pathogens? Told in the perspective of documents? Yes please. What do you think?

    I've had this book on my stack for a while and finally put it on my calendar to read. I'm curious about the way this story is told. I am featuring Soldier by Julie Kagawa this week. Happy reading!

    O was so excited to get my copy. Then I had to set it aside to read some review books. Hoping to start it over again soon as it's a genre I'm into right now.
