name: illuminae…….the illuminae files trilogy 

author : amie kaufman and jay kristof 

genre: YA SCI-FI 

pages: 599 pages 

publisher: knopf books for young readers 



this morning, kady thought breaking up with ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do today. this afternoon her planet was invaded 

this year is 2572, and two rival mega corporations 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 that lived on it.

with enemy fire raining down on them, exes kady and ezra-who are barely even talking to each other- are forced to fight their way onto the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit. 

but the warship is the least of their problems. a deadly virus has broken out and it’s 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 the hell is 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 speck to again 

5\5 stars 


non-spoiers review 

i mean if the synopsis didn’t trigger you to read it i don’t know what well maybe my review well

even though it’s sci-fi it’s hard to read and you won’t get confused

that plot is so gripping and page turner you won’t expect what happen at the end believe me!!

the characters are well written and realistic and funny and badasses

it’s written in cryptic media format and emails you will fly right through it

spoiler-y review 


AIDAN !! and ezra’s fake death !! kady is the illuminae team!! and ezra’s psychopathic mom!!

honestly guys i don’t know where to begin everything in this book is soo good

AIDAN was definitely one of the most interesting characters they’re were times where i just shocked with him and times i felt sympathy for him yea him!!

zhang is just an amazing mentor and friend so is james i was so saddened by what happened to them they were both funny .

ezra and kady are so cute together, kady is such a badass i loved her so much what she did is so heroic when AIDAN told her ezra was dead and he has been laying to her to help him i was soo shocked and saddened why the hell would you that you freak!!

and at the end i was shocked even more when ezra isn’t really dead and the person who killed thousands was his MOM and kady threatening her ( yes you go girl )

it is such an amazing read i want the rest of the trilogy right now

have you read it *i’de be surprised if you haven’t* what are your thoughts ?

……til next time
