This book. Penny Reid legit destroyed me with this installment of her Laws of Physics series. I finished a couple of hours ago and I'm still reeling from the emotional impact.

The prologue of SPACE connects directly to the end of MOTION but then jumps forward two and a half years. Since leaving Abram Mona has been going through the motions of living her life, still missing Abram and wondering what could have been. She only finds true peace in the quiet of the mountains in Aspen where her

I’d spent two years doubting my sanity. Instead, I should have been doubting the fundamental goodness of people, my willingness to trust, and my intelligence. And. Then. The. Wolves. Came.

Abram and Mona are back, and I have to say that I loved them so much more in this book than the previous one. I could feel the yearning and chemistry between them. The angst was incredibly high because they were letting the hurt and old insecurities blind t

Mona DaVinci is a brilliant, genius physicist known as one of the greatest minds of her generation. She lives in Southern California where she spends most of her time working and doing research. In need of some rest and relaxation she heads to her families cabin in Aspen. It's her favorite spot to unwind when she could use a break from her hectic life. All her perfect plans are ruined when she arrives in Aspen to find the solace she was looking fo

It's been two years since the end of the last book. Two years since Mona and her twin sister played their little switcheroo. And it's been two years worth of unresolved feelings. Mona is still very much in love with Abram, while Abram is filled with resentment and anger over the game that was played on him. When these two are snowed in at an isolated cabin, will they clear the air? Will their feelings come to the fore? And wil

Could Mona and Abram be any more addictive? Penny balances humor, angst and sexual chemistry perfectly in the second book in the Laws of Physics trilogy. My chest actually ached with the angst (I love that - books that do that to me always make it into my top reads!) as deceptions and truths from book one unravelled. These two are such incredibly loveable characters and I cannot wait for the conclusion to their story. All the stars!!!!!

Favorite Quotes:

Sometimes reality feels like a dream. Something happens, and it makes you question everything you know to be true, everything you take for granted about the world, about yourself. When that happens, your surroundings and interactions become likewise warped, like you’re watching those around you through a magnifying glass, or in high saturation color, and you can’t stop. You can’t make the world normal again, you know too much.

If space is the final frontier then books are the bestest, especially delightful, endearing, slow burn page-turners for smarties. Penny Reid continues her irresistible Laws of Physics trilogy with “Space.”

I definitely liked SPACE more than MOTION. The first half of this simultaneously frustrated me and broke my heart but the last half of the second Laws of Physics was just.. lovely. Wonderful. Sweet. Charming. And also a little bit heartbreaking. I can't imagine where things are going to go next but I'm sure it's going to be all of the same kind of awesome, and maybe some angst, and hopefully a little less of me wanting to slap Leo up the side of his head.

After Motion left me hanging, I could not wait to get my hands on Space! The story picks up over two years later, and my how Abram and Mona have changed.

Space is decidedly less whimsical than the previous book. It makes sense given that both Mona and Abram are nurturing broken hearts, but did Penny Reid have to crush my heart in the process? She’s such a talented devil. I may be sending her my doctor’s bill because the level of stress I experienced can’t be healthy.

Every time I read another Penny Reid book I fall more and more in love with her talent. She has this way of fleshing out characters that are as interesting as much as they are complex. Mona and Abram are that and more. She’s built up this connection both between them and to us separately that absolutely puts me in awe of her talent.

This story picks up where Motion left off and they have some new issues and expectations to work through. This is probably one of the slowest burns I’ve read but the

That ending totally caught me by surprise, I thought there would be more reading, more story, more Abram and Mona ... MORE. I was at 98%, and then, BAM! it ended. I was reading and then turned the page to "ABOUT THE AUTHOR". With MOTION, the ending didn't surprise me, I had sensed it was coming, but with SPACE, I was totally caught off guard.

Ruined…officially, completely, totally and irrevocably ruined. That is what Penny Reid has done to me. Every time I think one of her books cannot blow my mind any more than the previous one, she has to go and out do herself. It’s almost a challenge at this point. I tried (and failed) to prepare myself for Space...I mean, after Motion , I knew Mona and Abram were going to have a field day with my heart but sssssssssseriousl
This one gave me feelings. The writing of the words and the characters...feelings I tell you. There are so many fantastic moments between Mona and Abram that my cold dead heart was hurting for them.

In this second part of the “Motion” series, Abram has discovered Mona’s lies. Mona just doesn’t know it. Several years have passed. They are snowed in together at her parent’s place, along with friends. This had some sweet moments near the end. Also, some cameos from the “Chemistry” series! Looking forward to the conclusion.

Penny Reid has done it again! She stole my sanity with the ending of this book and I'm pretty sure I just have no hope of getting it back until Mona and Abram get the conclusion they deserve. I loved getting more of their characters and finally seeing Abram and the real Mona together, not the Mona trying to be her sister. It really did have a change on their dynamic but I enjoyed it and thought that there was some amazing character development with the both of them.

I've been procrastinating hard on this and employing an array of avoidance tactics instead of writing a review when I actually finished this over a week ago. Problem is, while I didn't hate it, I didn't really love it either. #awks

Let me start by saying that I know, I KNOW, that I should NEVER start a Penny Reid book in the late afternoon. I know this since I read all her books. (Not unless I'm at home alone, not having any motherly-wifey-worky commitments.)

But, that is exactly what I did.
I thought I was being such a smarty-pants and convinced myself that I could put the book down after supper. Spend some quality time with my husband, and that I'd "save" the book and finish it tomorrow.

“Wherever fear meets hope, that’s where I was.”

And that is exactly where I am in this epic love story between Abram and Mona: the intersection of fear and hope. This installment in the Laws of Physics trilogy is weighted with information and emotions and so much anticipation that the pages practically vibrate. But don't forget the wit and the charm as well. I’m a HUGE Penny Reid fan, and I’m not exaggerating in the slightest when I say: SPACE is one of my favorite things that she has ever writte

Penny Reid just NAILED it with Space.

At the end of Motion, Mona has to leave Abram, and for two-and-half years she agonizes over losing the man she came to love, so cruelly.

Oh. My. Fucking. GAWD!

I cannot begin to even explain to you how much this book surprised me.

I truly did not think that I would love this book. I was hoping and praying that it would be better for me than the first novella was, but I wasn't too optimistic. I was nervous as hell that this book would just stress me out and upset me but man oh man was I wrong.

If there's one thing that I loved about this book it's that it made me feel. It made me care. I teared up SO MANY TIMES. I even cri

I already knew I had a Penny addiction before starting Laws of Physics, but not all addictions are bad... right?

I usually devour Penny’s books as soon as they’re released but I can’t deal with cliffhangers, so it’s been torture having to wait for all three instalments of Laws of Physics to release before I could dive in. But now they’re here, devouring them is exactly what I’m doing.

So that was one hell of a long month I had to wait and I thought when I picked up Space that it would take me a bit to get back into the story but nope first page, first sentence I was back in that room with Mona feeling Abram being pulled out of her reach. And I was dying to know what happened next.

But obviously I can't tell you that. Sorry. What I can tell you is it will leave you just as desperate for part three in the series as Motion did for this one.

After that book aftermath (this book made me happy and I am not ashamed to admit it), I can share a more proper overall impression.
It’s difficult to put in words how much I loved this story. We have here the continuation of the character’s journey started in Motion (if you haven’t read Motion, you should go right this minute… stop reading, just GO). Some time has passed, and Mona and Abram face each other again with a lot (let me repeat that: A LOT) of unresolved feeli

"Any possibility of a future between us was an asymptote of a curve, approaching zero reaching to infinity but never touching the axis."

so you're saying there's a chance? But not much of a chance? As time goes on less of a chance? Was that more artful? Because that is a burdensome sentence for me. (Side note: I would think at some point, that thing that happens in life we don't talk about in romance happens, and thus y

I don't believe in wasting time treading water. When I know, I know.

I'm so glad I came across reading this at a time where all books have already been published, because I would have bawled at the excruciating process of waiting for this beautiful fantastic chaotic—sometimes neurotic—delight. Unto the next book I'll dive!
