Waiting On Wednesday #46 – Illuminae. The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
is a weekly event originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

For whatever reason Jill is not blogging since August 2016 but her meme is still going on. Hope everything is ok and she will be back soon!

Until then, I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday!

The German edition of Illuminae. The Illuminae Files_01 will come out later this year. And though I already got the English edition on my TBR waiting for me, I thought why not doing a Waiting On Wednesday for this edition as well?

I got the original book while it was on sale for a very low price (considered the number of pages it has) and since that it is laying on my pile, waiting to be read.

Yes, I know, I know … but sometimes I just can´t resist. And when I see an original edition and it comes with a great price, I go for it. Despite that, I´ve heard many interesting things about it. Other book-bloggers seem to like it, despite the more than unusual way it is written and presented. And yes, I already peeped inside – only a tiny bit - and saw many really weird looking pages.
And besides, sometimes I LOVE to have both editions on my shelves. The original AND the German. Don´t know why that is exactly, but I guess I like to have the choice which one I will read. And as you can see, the German cover looks the same, as the original does *YAY* Well, mostly *lol*

Illuminae. Die Illuminae Akten_01
Authors Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
The Illuminae Files #1
Publishing Date October 13, 2017
Format Hardcover  

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 mega-corporations are at war over a planet that´s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra – who are barely even talking to each other – are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet´s Al may actually be their enemy, and nobody in charge will say what´s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it´s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she´d never speak to again.

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.

Happy reading & waiting on

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.


  1. I really need to read this series soon! Great picks!

    Here’s my WoW!

  2. This is such a beautiful book. I've not read it but everyone who has seems to love it!

    1. Yes, it is. I really hope it is good, heard so many good things about it. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. If you end up reading both editions, it will be interesting to compare them. I have this Illuminae on my wish list. It does sound goo! Thanks for sharing, Vi!

    1. Don´t know if I´ll have the time to read both *lol*, but I agree with you. Comparing book editions is always very interesting. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I hope you enjoy this! It's got such rave reviews!

    1. Yes, and I am getting more and more curious *lol* Thanks for stopping by.

  5. It is fun seeing the different editions. So often with romance covers at least they're very very different from one country to another. Hope you enjoy this one!

    1. You are soooo right *lol* Thanks for stopping by.

  6. I love, love, LOVE Illuminae! I can't wait to see your thoughts on it!
