  6. Stephanie Perkins is very good at bringing out the teenager in her readers. I'm only 21% in but that is exactly how I feel about Isla and the Happily Ever After so far.

  7. Veeeery good. And particularly with this one, I thought.

  8. I really loved this--the more I think about it, the more I think it's maybe my favorite of her three. There's something both magical and real about Isla & Josh's story.

  9. Exactly. I really need to do a reread of LOLA. I reread ANNA not long back and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Now for LOLA so I can make an informed decision.

    But, yeah. Josh + Isla. Dang.

  11. Perfect description, JoLee. Heady and romantic. So so sweet.

  12. I loved The Fault in Our Stars. Should I read these possibly? I don't usually like romance but if it's different than I can handle it.

  13. I think these would be a great bet! They're not heavy romances, just sweet and swoony lovely ones. :)

  14. Glad it worked out for you! I was so excited for this, but it didn't end up being my cup of tea...YA is the best, but these books (especially Isla) were a little bit TOO teenager-ish?

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. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
