Motion by Penny Reid Review

5 Smooches


One week.
Home alone.
Girl genius.
Unrepentant slacker.
Big lie.
What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and figured everything 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 fifteen, finish college at eighteen, and start your PhD program at nineteen, 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 parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.


GAH! I just adore Penny Reid’s writing. It’s so uniquely offbeat and interesting. I personally am a huge fan of a slow burn romance and didn’t have a problem with the cliffhanger considering they are all coming out close to each other but you should be aware before jumping in that Motion contains both of these.

I have been eagerly awaiting Abram’s story and if this first part is anything to judge it on I can say it’s going to full of angst, feels, and amazing characters. Mona is the best sort of character that Penny writes. She’s smart and awkward and just what I was hoping to get.

I’ll be sitting here waiting patiently for Space to come out in a few weeks!
