ANNOUNCEMENT: JUNE 2019 BOOK CLUB READ: AURORA RISING BY AMIE KAUFMAN AND JAY KRISTOFF!

Hey Guys!

I’m super excited to announce that the 2019 June Book Club read is going to be AURORA RISING by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff!! It’s a new release sci-fi book and I think you’d like it a lot 😉 It also apparently has LGBTQ+ characters and just in time for Pride Month may I add! Below is the blurb. I’m really ecstatic to get reading!

From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.
