    I BINGED THE ILLUMINAE FILES SERIES // illuminae (book one): this book destroyed me… send help!

    Yes, I do realise that I read this trilogy back in March and I am only NOW doing this review. I am a terrible person. But oh well. Better late than never amirite?!

First of all, let me tell ya a teensy weensy bit about Cait. She runs the blog Paper Fury which you all probably…
