CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

Release date: April 4th 2017
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Pre-order: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that's now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth's robotic "mech" armies for decades with no end in sight. 

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel's programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis--even though her plan to win the war will kill him. 

Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel's devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.

  1. Nice! I'm curious about this one but also hesitant. Space books are so hit or miss for me because I usually struggle to understand the world within.

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I get that. The details can be overwhelming and sometimes not clear, but hopefully this will be great :)

  2. This one is new to me. It does sound like a really interesting story so I will need to keep my eye out for reviews of it. Great pick!

  3. You know, I've not read a Gray book in a looooong time! My favorite book of hers is Fateful, one of her older titles. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Shane. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

    1. I've had that Evernight book for a really long time now just sitting on my shelf, but never got around to reading it for some reason. Maybe I'll read it with this one. Defy the Stars does sound really good though. Hope I do enjoy it :)

      Thank you!

  4. I love love love this cover!! I'm really intrigued by this one. I hope it's good :)

  7. This one has been on my list since last April, so I'm looking forward to it as well!

    Here's my WOW

    1. Oh wow! Hope we both enjoy it when we get to read it :)

  8. This cover looks so pretty. We've never read a book from Claudia Gray before, but recognise her as the author of A Thousand Pieces of You, which also has a beautiful cover. Defy the Stars looks like a good read. :)
