A (brokenhearted) physicist.
Now an infamous (who is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE!! UGH!) musician.
The worst has already happened.
Mona has learned that she has nothing figured out and plans are meaningless. After leaving her in Aspen, Abram is now breaking sales-records, rising to rock star fame almost overnight. Mona can’t seem to escape him. He is literally everywhere, or at least images of him are.
Just when she thinks things can't get any more confusing, Abram returns . . . What happens next? Only TIME will tell.
laws of physics : TIME
by penny reid
When I read a Penny Reid book magic happens. Those are not cookie cutter stories but spellbinding and unputdownable treasures, her characters so entirely endearing that I wish they were real so that I could be their best friend. Mona and Abram are thieves – they up and ran away with my heart. And let’s not forget Penny Reid’s genius thoughts that spill into her characters:
“Everything is both more and less. Everything is balance. My chromosomal arrangement is more XX, less XY. You are more musician, less airplane pilot.”
His lips curved weakly, but a spark lit behind his eye. “I could listen to you talk about this forever.”
In the last installment of the Laws of Physics series, TIME, we finally get all the goodness that Mona and Abram so deserve. Our two sweethearts are trying to figure out a way how to make their relationship work long-term. Abram is going on tour with his band while Mona is off to Geneva for a couple of months. Long distance is damned hard and for a while phone calls was everything they had.
It was so utterly touching to see Abram so consumed with his love for Mona, how he physically missed her. Mona, who still had one secret she needed to divulge, found strength and courage in her feelings for Abram. Their love was so deep and all-encompassing and it was almost like it grew stronger, the longer and the farther they were apart. Both of them put so much work into their relationship – I loved how they were so honest and straight with each other and solved their issues with an open mind and kindness.
“I love you with every part of myself, you’ve invaded every corner, every secret place, and I only want—I’ve only ever wanted—your happiness. If you want me to stay, then with you is always where I want to be.”
I can’t even with these two. They were two puzzle pieces, belonging together, made for each other.
It was Marie, Abram’s sister, who actually described Mona best because she is in love with Mona’s male counterpart.
“In fact, she can count the number of people she trusts on one hand. Maybe three fingers. But once she trusts, she trusts. She bends over backward to make those people happy, worries she’ll lose them if she does something wrong. So, she tries to put people in boxes, assigns labels to relationships, so she can lower her expectations, so she’s never hurt.”
See why I loved this heroine so much? It’s the same reason why I was wildly in love with Matt.
I thought after finishing SPACE that Mona’s siblings and especially Leo weren’t redeemable but I found myself understanding that the issues Leo had weren’t his issues alone. All three of them grew up in a loveless environment and their parents, separating them during their most impressible and formative age only exacerbated the situation. Mona, Lisa and Leo had everything they could want for, except the one thing the needed most: love
TIME was utter perfection. I swooned, I laughed, I never wanted it to end but eventually it did and Penny gave us the best epilogue possible. This whole trilogy is a beautiful reminder why I love reading romance. I don’t think I’ll ever tire reading Penny Reid’s stories.
“I love you,” he said. Or maybe I did. I couldn’t be certain.
“It’s never going to be enough,” I said. Or maybe he did. I couldn’t be sure.
