Well, I have a final today, so lots of fun. I’m having trouble concentrating so I figured I’d get this up. Procrastination is always the correct choice…right?
Also don’t forget that the Winter Bibib is in full swing! You can join at any time and there are challenges for all platforms! On my TBR post, I’ve linked their announcement video and listed their social media if you’d like to learn more!
As you’re all aware, today is Monday (at least it still is in the States) meaning it Goodreads Monday! For those of you not familiar with this meme, Goodreads Mondays originated on Lauren’s Page Turners’ blog. To participate, you just showcase a random book from your Goodreads page. The twist is that I’m only going to feature my TBR shelf (aka the “want to read “shelf) like many other people do so I guess it’s not that much of a twist, BUUUUUT, I’m also going to predict my star rating of the book! I’ve seen both Regan (PeruseProject) and Sam (Thoughts on Tomes) do 5 Star TBR Prediction YouTube videos and have been inspired to do a video or post but was struggling to find some 5-Star predictions. This is kind of my middle ground where I can predict my star rating and why and then revisit this post after I read it to see how close I actually was.
To pick the books for this, I’m putting my Goodreads want to read shelf number in a random number generator and letting fate pick the number for me. The lucky number for this week was 433 and as you can see from the title, the lucky book was One Food in the Grave by C. C. Hunter.

[SPOILERS IF YOU’RE NOT CAUGHT UP WITH THE ILLUMINAE FILES. JUMP TO STAR RATING TO AVOID]
Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?
Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.
With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.
Star Rating Prediction:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 5/5
I’ll be shocked if this isn’t a 5 star read. I have loved Illuminae and Gemina and am highly anticipating this conclusion. The previous two books have given us unique and action-packed science fiction story delivered in such a creative format. I can’t wait until March to see how this book compares to the other two.
