Waiting on Wednesday: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on...


Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray
Untitled #1
Publisher: Little, Brown Books For Young Readers
Publication Date: April 4th, 2017
Pages: 512

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.

I have yet to read a Claudia Gray novel, but I think that this will be my first! I really like the cover! The colors and the font, I think, are really pretty! And it sounds really interesting. I'm excited for this one to come out!

What book are you looking forward to this week?

    1. I think the font is my favorite thing about this cover. I don't know why because it's not particularly spectacular, but I love it for some reason! I hope you enjoy it too, if you should ever pick it up!
