Friday Cuteness: Or, Fun Things in My Inbox (4)

This is a new series on my blog of random fun things, usually book-related, that are emailed to me, and I think you guys would like to hear about. Got something you want to share? Hit my contact button and send it to me!

Random House sent me an email recently that had some really cool stuff in it. First of all, let's talk about the book:

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

To be released October 20th, 2015

(Summary from goodreads, but also it's the same one in the press release they sent me.)

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.

Amazon / IndieBound / Book Depository

This sounds really cool, and the website has several neat features like videos and character profiles, with new things being released each month around the 20th.

I particularly like this video.



What do you guys think? Is this one you're be interested in?

Peace and cookies,
