Defy the Worlds (Defy the Stars #2) Reviews
I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS I MIGHT BURST
and it'll look just like the cover
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the review copy in exchange for an honest review
I read Defy the Worlds fairly close to the first book, Defy the Stars, and I think that was a good decision. This way it was easier to remember the differing planets. I am a little conflicted on this book. There isn’t anything that I particularly disliked and I can pinpoint exactly what I do like but I am still left with a small feeling of being dissatisfied.
The book starts us off about six months after ...more
Rating: 3.5 stars
Defy the Stars is one of my favorite YA science fiction novels. Needless to say, Defy the Worlds was one of my most anticipated 2018 reads.

Defy the Stars: ★★★★
Ahhh, I'm so excited. I won an ARC from a Goodreads giveaway from Hachette books. SO excited to read this!!

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Abel and Noemi are just as enjoyable as ever - in fact, I really enjoyed Abel's exploration of his humanity and he remains one of my favourite characters. Some additional secondary ...more
HOLD THE PHONE cause I just won an ARC of this and I don't think my body is ready. Please just let Abel and Noemi be happy. Please.
HOW WILL I SURVIVE TILL THE NEXT BOOK NO I AM NOT OKAY THAT ENDING WAS EVIL!
Also, like, people should read this series because it's really quite good and written in third person present tense which there is never enough of and there's great characters and cool spacey stuff...
BUT THE ENDING!
In the novel, I think Virginia really understood what I went through:
"It's all right... But I just - I need a few seconds to just, I don't know, flail around and make pterodactyl noises. Let me do that o ...more
