The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
The first thing I noticed about this book was the cover. I love its simple design and how it easily represents the two main characters in the story. This book was a sweet romantic comedy that had me laughing many times. It was a smooth read and the chapters transitioned easily. I felt the timeline move forward as the characters developed.
I really loved that it was set in academia. It took me back to my college days and the crazy hours I kept. There’s no way I could pull late nights like I did then, but these characters seemed to thrive on it and coffee. I struggled to put this book down and found my mood following that of Olive’s as the story neared its end.
I picked this book as my September 2021 Book of The Month. Olive’s character was selfless and compassionate. I loved how much she cared for those closest to her and thought it hilarious the huge lies she constructed to push one of her best friends in a certain direction. If she hadn’t, well, there wouldn’t have been a story. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
