Love on the Brain By Ali Hazelwood Cover Image
ISBN: 9780593336847
Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Berkley - August 23rd, 2022

Hazelwood's sophomore novel is an absolute delight! Nerdy STEM jokes abound, as do jabs at academia and higher education. Readers, like me, who aren't brain or rocket scientists will grasp the scope of the BLINK project which forces Bee to work with her grad school nemesis, Levi.

Love on the Brain stole my breath and, when I caught it, had me giggling at cat puns and facts about human remains. The tension, the conflict, the stakes, the resolution--all of it shines, no, *glitters*.  So, what would Marie Curie do? Buy this book. From this independent bookstore, hopefully. And read it while basking in a tub of radium, probably.
