  1. Just read your Smugglivus post! You are the best. Such creative categories, and the sharpest little one-liner descriptions that make me want to read every single thing you mentioned.

    One question- Doesn't the cover of The Girl is Murder remind you SO MUCH of the cover of What I Saw and How I Lied?? At first glance, I thought it was the same book!

  2. Katie, I'm glad you liked it! And I completely agree. WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED was the first thing I thought of when I saw that cover!

  4. I always love your end-of-the-year Smugglivus post. What fun categories! I just finished Jane, and I have to agree that the cover is gorgeous. As I was reading the book I kept getting distracted by the hypnotic loveliness of the cover.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day.
