Friday Firsts: Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff #RRSciFiMonth




illuminaeFriday Firsts is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others.  Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader.  As this month is Sci fi Month 2016 my book today is a science fiction novel that I’ve been wanting to read for some time.  Illuminae by Amie Kaurman and Jay Kristoff







My First Impressions

Well, it appears that Illuminae is going to be told in the epistolary style – which I love – think Bram Stoker’s Dracula or The Three by Sarah Lotz as two fine examples.  From reading the start of this email it appears that some sort of corporate secret/conspiracy is being uncovered *wiggles eyebrows*.  As to who is doing the revealing or why remains to be seen – from the memo above I’m thinking we’re going to find out the answers to those two key questions and perhaps experience a little of the danger that they went through to uncover this ‘dirt’!

What are you reading right now? Did it start out strong? Feel free to join in.

    I loved this book! I started it in audio but switched to the actual book because I loved how it was laid out. So different from most! Differently kept me turning the pages quickly. Great story!! 🙂

    What an amazing book! I can’t wait to read your review 🙂

      I can’t wait to dig further in. I’ve started but I’m also 2/3 in with Congress of Secrets (which I’m loving) and want to finish.

    I, too, love the sound of this one and have promised that if I’m very good and manage to continue whittling down my TBR pile – I’ll treat myself:)

    Oh man, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this when you’re done!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, I’ve started it, and partly I am wishing that I was reading a hard copy – just purely because of the format – but I’m not going to let that be something that annoys me. I’m hoping for good things from this one.

    GAH I can’t wait! I need to finish my current read before I can start Illuminae but I’m dying to get to it. Epistolary novels are everything I love, seriously. I’ve heard such good things about the style of this one!

  7. Lisa @TenaciousReader

    I’ve heard good things about this one. Look forward to hearing how it turns out for you

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, so many people seem to love it so I’m hoping to as well.
      Lynn 😀
