Motion, the first in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now! 

One week. Home alone. Girl genius. Unrepentant slacker. 

What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.

Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.

Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

Abram's book is here! 

I was intrigued by him when first met him in Elements of Chemistry, especially when he dared go and poke the grumpy Martin Sandeke. Pretty excited when I heard Penny was going to write his book, and when it was revealed that he was Marie's (from Penny's Knitting in the City series) little brother. Talk about a crossover! 

The beginning of the story was a little bit rough for me because I wasn't really sure what to feel about Mona. I was charmed by Kaitlyn (Elements of Chemistry) right away while it took me longer to warm up to Mona. She was a girl genius being roped into impersonating her identical twin sister Lisa for a week, and I didn't know how to feel about this until I got further into the story--when Mona had to pretend to be Lisa while staying with Abram, and found herself catching feelings for him, and him for her. 

"Was he falling for me? Or my sister?"

That just fueled my need for angst. Every time Mona thought about the hopelessness of her situation, my heart broke for her. By the end of MOTION, I could confidently say that I love Mona, her Physics jokes and her quirky sayings. I just want to protect her from all types of heartbreaks. 

I feel like we haven't learned enough about Abram in MOTION, but what we did learn (a little bit of his backstory, his passion for music, how he feels a little too much), I like. Side note: there is a little discussion about romance books in this story because Abram is a romance reader (!!!). He defended the genre to skeptical Mona and even recommended her Lisa Kleypas. His favourite LKs were Devil in Winter and Love in the Afternoon! I love that man. 

The cliffhanger was a brutal one, but Penny did warn us about it multiple times. Luckily we don't have to wait that long for the next book (which will also have a cliffhanger... *dies*)

Pretty Books I'm Excited To Read

Happy Tuesday, lovebirds!

I haven't done a romance list post in a while and I really enjoy doing them, so I thought I'd share with you guys some amazing-sounding books that have recently gotten pretty covers. You might end up broke by the end of the post - you have been warned (looking at you especially, Becky!) - but ugh you guys, everything looks AMAZING and I want to read them all right away. Hope you enjoy the post and the pretties! :)

Can't-Wait Wednesday (7): Devil's Daughter by Lisa Kleypas

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the yet-to-be released books we're excited to read. It is based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Hi everyone!

It's a new Wednesday and as usual I'm here to share with you another one of my anticipated titles.

Lisa's Sunday Update (2)

Hi guys!

I haven't done a proper reading update in a while, welp. I have been sharing Can't Wait Wednesdays just to post something but I'm going to try and do better from now on. 

It's the weekend and I have a new appreciation for it now, because I just started my full-time job on Wednesday! That's right, your girl is no longer funemployed and is now a working professional. The job isn't my first choice and isn't something I ever imagine myself doing in a million years, but it pays well and should be a good experience. I need to fund my book-buying habits and hopefully save some money for travel, LOL.

Today I'll be sharing some mini reviews of the books I read...a week ago? Two weeks ago? I can't remember the last time I finished a book because I've been in a weird headspace since I was confirmed for the job. I told my sister that I haven't touched my iPad since I started working and she was like, "Are you okay?"
